The Most Terrifying Video You'll Ever See 2

I support saying fuck the short term risks, acting preemptively to avoid a larger issue is always the best idea. I think it is time to have some personal accountability, and realise that we can't continue to push our problems off on the next person down the line.

Let's all take the proper steps to stand up, united, learning what we need to learn to create a sustainable environment, while also helping to teach those who are behind the ball. Why must we wait until it is too late to act, before we show even the slightest interest in anything other than our wallets?

We the culmination of a generation of people overwhelmed by consumerism and greed, without the slightest interest in using what we have and having what we'll actually use.

If you don't fall into that category, great! Continue to grow, expand, share, and create, whatever it is that you love.

However, if you are in that category, it is time for you to realise that you are the dead weight that is holding the general populace back, because you are too lazy to investigate the facts beyond what is force fed down your throats through the mass media of your choosing.

So, you come to a fork in the road. You can continue on, following the path you find comfortable, holding the world back because you want to neglect to question your rational.

Or, alternatively, you can grow your understanding, realise that it is okay to have been wrong, and re-assess your future actions.

It is time to let go of out dated practices. It is time to accept the fact that we have the power to create a future that is almost unrecognizable to our current standing as humans. Yet, it requires temporary discomfort.

But which is worse? Temporary discomfort, or long term hardship that will change the face of all that we know and love, without ever even attempting to find some sort of solution to the ever looming demise of our own existence?

I for one shall choose the temporary discomfort, and those with me, stand up, be heard, and assemble as much knowledge as possible to break down the current boundaries of our limited understanding. For if you don't take the steps to change your own life, no one can do it for you, and eventually, you then become the same dead weight that you protested against.
