Your money or your vote

Elections are coming up. They happen about once a year.

People fly all the time. We buy takeout and bottled water all the time. We buy cars all year round and fill up our gas tanks daily.

Which of your actions impacts the world more: voting once a year or two or spending thousands of dollars every year on polluting industries that grow from our purchases, infiltrate government, control legislation, and tell everyone they’re providing goods and services people want?

As long as we pay them, they’re right. They don’t buy their own products. We do. They’re doing what we pay for. We pay for what they’re doing.

We don’t have to buy what they sell. None of it is necessary for living and thriving. They’re necessary for our culture, but our culture has abandoned, regarding the environment, Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You, Leave It Better Than You Found It, and Live and Let Live. We can restore these values. I suggest they are worth it.
