The buzz words today are quite interesting but so ill-defined that they can mean anything you want them too, allowing one to prove their point, no matter what their point is. In fact, it’s getting so bad that when people use these terms, there is an unspoken rule that you are not allowed to challenge them on it or else you are a bigot, racist, homophobe, or some sort of hater. What are these words or terms I speak of? Well, let’s discuss two of them shall we?
First, sustainability, that word is now being used in corporations, government, schools, academia, churches, no-profit, military, economics, health care, politics, and even on sports teams. The funny thing is, that just about every time it’s used, it is used in hypocrisy – which is ironic in itself, because using a term in hypocrisy isn’t sustainable either – “trust me” on this, I am a writer and so I “must” be an expert and know these things – see what I mean. So, why do those on the left-side of the political spectrum, especially its leaderships use this word so early and often – I speak of folks such as:
(2) Big City Planners
(3) Hollywood Celebrities
(4) United Nations Agenda 2030
(5) United States Democratic Leadership
Professors are notorious for using ‘sustainability’ and yet, there is nothing more unsustainable than higher education – as academia continues to raise tuition at rates 10-times that of inflation, all the while University faculty members demand better benefits, higher pay, and expect unprecedented pensions, and once tenured – why bother coming to work – let the grad students lecture and go on long-term sabbatical. This whole unsustainable la, la, land is about to collapse as the student loan bubble bursts, probably in 2017-2018.
Big City Planners use the word sustainable in practically every sentence, but big cities draw resources from far outside their glass kingdom as they throw rocks at the rural folks with heavy tax burdens which is siphoned away to quench the unending thirst of the failing inner cities. Cities like LA, NYC, Chicago, Boston, Denver, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco pretend to be sustainable and efficient, but we all know they are not.
Hollywood Celebrities – those wonderful limousine liberals – their whole lives are unsustainable yet they preach to us about climate change as they fly around in private jet aircraft putting out more CO2 than your entire family in a year with one-flight. They think this is alright? Sustainable? Not.
The Democrat Leadership brings us more socialist programs every year, supposedly sustainable and affordable due to economies of scale, but there is nothing affordable or sustainable about ObamaCare or anything else they put forth. But, they do it in the name of “equality” and without equality, our society is unsustainable.
Fact is, in nature there is no such thing as equality, and last time I checked nature seems to be doing just fine, and has sustained itself for 4.5 Billion Years, I’d say that’s sustainable, but practically nothing humans come up with seems to be. Beware when someone starts bantering these terms – chances are they are just trying to convince you of something that simply isn’t so. So there, think on this.
