To save the future, we must repudiate self-serving, dysfunctional politics
Our perceived beliefs and the resulting political gridlock are putting the world in peril. We need to examine the tunnel vision of our beliefs for the truth, but whom should we trust? Our social media friends who value our fellowship? Politicians who conspire to gain our confidence? Mainstream or alternative media that strive for commercial success? Or scientists who seek to understand our physical world? You may choose to disagree, but I trust the rigorous methods of science over any unsubstantiated opinions.
Scientists are now urgently warning that human activity is threatening future life on Earth. Are scientists sincere? Or are they deviously misinforming us for self-serving reasons? We can’t allow blinded thinking to end our existence on this beautiful God-given Earth.
When individuals believe they have unrestrained personal rights over the needs of the community, they are like cancer cells running rampant to the detriment of the body. Our political leadership must balance the needs of today with the challenges of the world’s future. We must abandon tribal thinking and end the political shortsightedness, dysfunctionality and hostility. There is so much to enjoy in the present, but let’s leave a future for our children, grandchildren, etc.
