THE TRUTH ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY

sust1

There is much talk about living a sustainable lifestyle but what does it really mean? Wilderness is sustainable because it is diverse, productive, efficient, and lasts for a long time without polluting the environment. In effect all the natural resources are efficiently recycled for the benefit of future generations.

For humans sustainability means diverse organic farming and using natural resources for products which are recyclable, efficient or use the least amount of energy, and minimally pollute or don’t pollute at all, and last a long time.

Food is the most important human necessity which should be diverse and as healthy as possible. This means organic farming without the use of artificial fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and smaller farms dedicated to the production of a large variety of crops and not the monoculture crop agribusiness of today.

Houses not in the city should be PASSIVE relatively small houses or houses which use recyclable materials, use the least amount of renewable energy, recycle their waste, and use renewable energy sources such as solar as much as possible. In the city the buildings should use recyclable materials, be PASSIVE durable structures which use the least amount of energy, and the water and waste should be recycled for continuous use. Steel, glass, and concrete should be the primary materials used.

Cars should be relatively small, efficient electric powered, durable and reliable, and with easily replaceable parts so that they can be used from generation to generation. In the snow free areas efficient, durable, reliable, with easily replaceable parts motorcycles should be used more frequently as primary or secondary motorized vehicles.

3D printing should be used as much as possible for the manufacture of products and where large scale production is more efficient then sustainable robotized plants like the BMW plant in Chattanooga Tennessee should be used.

Sustainability: n. developing resources which satisfy human needs and protects the environment

CONCLUSION:

Sustainability will use the least amount of recyclable natural resources in an efficient way with ultimately no pollution so that future generations will be able to live healthy lives and not run out of natural resources on into the foreseeable future.

The bigger is better philosophy will be replaced with a philosophy of smaller, more efficient, reliable, durable, and non-polluting is better.

THE TRUTH ABOUT HATE

hate

Hate: v. to sense very intense disapproval which one feels when one wants to destroy a bad and/or wrong subset(s) which may be morally (bad and/or wrong) and/or may be (bad and/or wrong) because it is the primary reason why one can’t achieve a desired goal(s) and/ or (bad and/or wrong) because it is a source of mental displeasure and/or bodily pain

Most humans hate more than one thing and rarely even hate themselves so much that they harm themselves or even commit suicide.

If you hate something bad enough then you may decide to do something about it. If you hate how you are living then you may take steps to change that. If you hate someone then chances are you will not be able to change them and the best thing to do is to avoid or ignore them as much as possible.

Love, hate, and fear are all great motivators which make you behave in certain ways and having healthy control over those strong emotions is a key to potential happiness and not having control over them can lead to great misery.

If you hate lying, stealing, cheating, and murdering then you are morally justified if someone does those things.  You should be less judgmental and not hate it if humans look different, behave differently, and have different opinions and beliefs than your own which are not immoral.

Trying to change an adult is almost as difficult as trying to change the world and the sooner that you realize this then the more realistic will be your interactions with them.

Hate disease, physical pain, the destruction of biodiversity, immorality, and hard core criminals which are all things which sometimes can and should be changed or eliminated from your life.

Participate or believe in causes and organizations which try to make the world a better place but don’t wallow miserably in the hatred of someone or something which you can do nothing about now or in the future.

Many organizations use hatred to mobilize humans to their cause and it frequently works because humans are mostly motivated by their strong emotions and hatred is definitely one of the more powerful ones.

Politicians are notorious emotion manipulators who stereotype a group and motivate you to HATE the opposing party, liberals, conservatives, socialists, right to lifers, right to choosers, illegal aliens, unions, right to workers, homophobes, gays, believers, atheists, rich, poor, corporations, banks, and politicians with differing views than your own.

We frequently hate it when something interferes with our goals and either delays their achievement or makes it impossible to achieve them. Life is not always fair or just and someone may be in a position of power to prevent you from achieving your goal or goals or you yourself may be unqualified to achieve the goals which you have in mind.

Consuming yourself with hatred for the powerful or feeling miserable about the constant failure in your life can make you very unhappy. Learn what you realistically can optimistically look forward to and don’t be defeated by the seeming insurmountable obstacles in your life.

Just caring less about things which you can’t change and being content with what little that you may have can make your life much happier in the long duration.

THE TRUTH ABOUT MEAT AND MILK

meatmilk-300x270

It may not be obvious that the quality of our meat and milk is decreasing with every year and the use of disease promoting industrial confinement of livestock to small spaces, GMO feed, antibiotics, growth hormones, artificial insemination, and other artificial additives to meat are going to lead to bad health for present and future generations.

Here is a Popsci article which shows how quality can be maintained in a sustainable way and produce healthy quality meat and milk in the process. I look forward to the day when raw milk with all its nutrient value will hit grocery shelves and not be labeled as food just for pets and the paranoia of bad meat for human consumption will be a bad historical nightmare no longer lingering in our minds and fearful dreams.

Certified organic meat and milk will be available to most for a much healthier lifestyle of eating.
