There is a sadness at the back of life which some people do not attempt to mitigate. Entirely aware of their own standing in the shadow, and yet alive to every tremor and gleam of existence, there they endure.
I’m looking for the face I had before the world was made.
—W. B. Yeats, from “A Woman, Young and Old,” in The Winding Stair and Other Poems (Macmillan, 1933)
A man admittedly followed and killed an innocent teenager, and was declared not guilty.
States are passing laws allowing guns in public schools.
Women are losing their reproductive rights at an increasingly alarming rate.
Riots are tearing through the streets in cities all over the world.
College tuition keeps rising, sending a generation into debt as soon as they are entering the adult world.
Education funds keep getting slashed.
Privacy no longer exists.
Corporations now have the same rights as people, and the funds to actually protect them.
Through loopholes, many U.S. Corporations pay a lower tax rate than middle class families.
States are now passing more voter ID laws and similar laws that only affect the lower class.
The corporate giant, Monsanto, has pretty much purchased and bribed its way into every grocery product on the shelf, resulting in food becoming less and less like, well, food. There are reasons Cancer rates are getting worse.
Likewise, Monsanto is making sure small American farmers are ran out of business. Also, their constant pesticide use is killing bees and other insects, causing dire environmental issues.
The mass media is more concerned with pop culture and trends, than the real issues the world is facing.
Human population is ever growing, and at rapid rates. It can’t just continue this way.
We have put so much trash in giant landfills all over our world and in our oceans. We are killing our planet.
By planet you mean we are killing ourselves.
Can we also pay attention to the fact that there aren’t just political problems going on???
I mean, seriously, I have been trying to tell everyone, BUT NO ONE IS EVEN REBLOGGING THE ARTICLES THAT COULD SAVE A LIFE
While all this is happening, the Pacific Ocean is being contaminated by not just trash, but Radiation.
There was a leak in the Fukushima power plant that has now poisoned the entire Pacific Ocean.
Some think that oh, maybe it will go away with time. Sure, it will, in about 16 million years. Yes, you read that right. Due to the long half life of iodine-129, the whole ecosystem of the Pacific Coast will be contaminated pretty much forever.
Here is the radiation levels in the ocean.
Everyone needs to wake up.
The government needs to be set straight. They were hiding this information so that people don’t panic. Well, now everyone’s gonna die and not know why.
Shit is going down, and we need to make sure EVERYONE knows EVERYTHING that is happening in this place we call home.
Holy fucking shit
fukushima is one of the scariest things going on and it’s literally getting less attention than that real houswives couple who are going to prison.
whoa whoa whoa not cool guys read pls
how maNY TIMES DO PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY FUKUSHIMA IS FAKE OR IT’S BEING BLOWN WAY OUT OF PROPORTION FUCKING STOP
REBLOG PEOPLE , FUCKING REBLOG!!! WHO CARES ABOUT IT NOT FITTING YOUR BLOG! SAVE LIVES AND REBLOG THIS!!!!
But we can’t do anything about the pacific can we?
Do your research. There’s always a way. Although there are a lot of things listed here, there is ALOT more going on. We’re in a time where we can’t just sit around and continue with the way things are. Nobody can have that “it does not affect me so I don’t care” mentality anymore because ultimately, EVERYTHING that happens affects you, and everything you do affects other people. It’s ignorant to think that we are all separate organisms doing our own thing for we share one earth, with every other species on the planet.
Bottom line, we should be doing everything in our power to change the way things are because this is not as intelligent as the human race can get.
