Eco-Understanding.

Atleast once a month we hear in the news about some problem in the animal kingdom, about some environmental degeneration due to pollution, about the ever declining health of the population. Compared to the world in which our ancestors lived, we aren't drinking clean water, we aren't breathing clean air, and we aren't eating natural foods anymore. While the human body and the planet are amazing in their abilities to adapt, just how far can the envelop be pushed?

Maybe it's time to review our charity giving donations (for those who can afford to help out financially) ... while others can review their habits at the micro-level and learn how to minimize their contributions to the various problems. The "New World Order" is not one of Global Corporations controlling World Governments, but one of "Understanding," of coming together to raise the new barn after its destruction. All the talking, protesting and letter writing is helpful - but in this world nothing speaks louder and faster than what you do with your money. Big Brother is really keeping an eye on consumerism.
