Earth For President Or No President

I don’t know about you but I am tired of being told who I have to vote for in politics. I am tired of voting out of fear rather than personal preference. This is supposed to be a democracy not a fearocracy.

The historic and current neglect and abuse of Earth really irks me. As far as I am concerned, Earth is a powerful sentient being and we live on her. We are literally desecrating the very foundation we stand on.

And don’t even get me started with talk of fleeing to Mars or fighting World War III in space. No freaking way. Enough with the arrogant colonizer energy. I am pretty sure that’s how we got where we are.

When are we going to stop rubbing everyone else’s backs and start finding our own backbone? The USA is a mess. We are divided and we are destructive. We are not heroes. We are not a democracy. We are not free.

Freedom begins and ends with taking care of the earth we stand on. We should all be able to agree on this. It should be a no-brainer. Without Earth, there is no humanity. The idea that we can all just hop on a rocket and go to Mars is baloney. Only the richest are going to Mars (and good luck with that). The rest of us are staying right here.

We all have one thing in common: her name is Earth. It’s time to clean up our act. I would love to see a global artist campaign that puts Earth and her needs at the center of everyone’s attention prior to the 2024 elections. It does not need to be organized. Most of us have access to the Internet. We can just do it.

I will be forwarding lots of Earthcentric art and inspiration on social media and I invite you to join me. Got Earthcentric art ideas? Now is the time to create, create, create. Intellectualism is dead. Art is everything. Let’s create an online movement seeded by things that really matter like, you know, the ground under our feet.

Let’s vote with our likes and shares for the people who care about Earth. If enough of us join in, maybe our intentions can take root and blossom in time to turn this crash-dummy test around.

Earth first. Earth now. Earth for President or do we even really need a President? Maybe having a President is part of the problem. Become President of your own life and make a sentient Earth central to your daily existence. If we care and act from there, things change.

People of Earth, it’s time to wake up. We have some time but not much. We have enough time to express what we deserve and demand loud and clear. This is how we start changing the world from colonizer culture to care and share culture. Care and share culture is the future even if it does not look that way right now. I can feel it in my bones. How about you?
