I heard on CBC yesterday that there are two species becoming extinct each day. But our conservative fixation and priority of the electorate remains to be on the economy. The increase or decrease in the Gross National Product takes precedent as the determining factor in deciding on a president and political policy.
I understand that jobs and livelihood are important issues but it seems to be that our values do not take into consideration factors that are aggressively contributing to global destruction. Why is it that we cant seem to collectively shift away from the extreme need to own, possess and to consume for the sake of humanity. When will be the right time to individually and collectively do what is required in regards to altering our personal choices that so greatly affect the whole.
