The System

May 15, 2020

Despite our dreams of grandeur, infinite growth in a finite world is not going to work. No matter how much we negate the obvious, no matter how high we aim, reality will remind us its existence at some point. I am worried, I really am.
At first, when observing our species from outer space, an alien would perhaps find the situation amusing. After all, when a kid asks for a gigantic mountain of ice cream as a dessert, it may sound adorable, and bring some smiles. But the time of innocence and play is long gone. Now, as a globalized society, we keep expanding our territory, regardless of other forms of life, we keep burning forests, we keep extracting more and more energy, destroying and killing in the process. We even modeled a system in which a few select ones feel no shame exploiting the rest of the human beings, so to keep money flowing into their own pockets.
Don't get me wrong: ambition is fine, it is even necessary. But I don't see how it could act as a foundation for the negation of life itself. When I hear some world leaders saying seriously that money is much more important than life... yeah... money, that arbitrarily concept we invented ourselves, as an exchange tool, for the sake of a better... life.

Everything here is created out of my own photos, as per usual. Thanks for watching!
