“All of those for whom authentic transformation has deeply unseated their souls must, I believe, wrestle with the profound moral obligation to shout from the heart-perhaps quietly and gently, with tears of reluctance; perhaps with fierce fire and angry wisdom; perhaps with slow and careful analysis; perhaps by unshakable public example-but authenticity always and absolutely carries a demand and duty: you must speak out, to the best of your ability, and shake the spiritual tree, and shine your headlights into the eyes of the complacent. You must let that radical realization rumble through your veins and rattle those around you.”
Ken Wilber

Arrogance Burning

n

oiltowerfire

You are an arrogant people living in an arrogant society

You live in a desert

You live in a society where power equals respect

You make boatloads of money from barrel-loads of oil (taking from nature)

You build extravagant and tall buildings … just because you can

You cover those buidings with flammable “combustible thermo-plastic core held between two sheets of aluminium”

You put that building in the hot desert sun

You find out that those tall shiny buildings are not solar collectors … but actually flammable solar collectors

You watch those buildings go up in flames (nature taking back)

You user precious water (remember – desert!) to put those fires out

Why go to all the trouble … you could have just burned the oil directly

Brilliant. Literally brilliant. Only literally.
