"We can't let corporate capitalism be the final expression of human intelligence on this planet"...
...my teacher Joanna Macy said these words to me a few weeks ago, as we talked about the movement for climate justice. The words stopped me in my tracks, and my eyes began to fill with tears.
This declaration might be the purest articulation of how I understand what we are resisting in our movement:
I refuse to let corporate greed get the last word about who we are as humans on planet earth.
Resistance to corporate capitalism is a challenge of epic proportions, and it's one worth dedicating our life energy to, on behalf of every being in the web of life. These words are the motivation that I need to find ways to stay in action for my whole life, and I hope that y'all find strength and determination in them too.
Thank you for all that you do on behalf of life on earth (every. little. thing!)
With gratitude for you,
