The world of Blade Runner is around the corner. Wake up or children will have nothing to look forward to. Not elephants, not slugs, not anything. For those parents who say this may be a concern of yours, but it isn’t ours. Right. Beware of those parents. After Hurricanes Irma and Harvey, there has never been a better time to wake up.
Today, at this late hour we must stop playing games with your kind. Laws need to be enforced, and we must stop trading your teeth for they are worthless without you, great jewel of Creation. We must also send out a prayer for your kind or mankind’s spirit will perish. You are a perfect sail of incomparable flesh, the last giant walking the face of the earth.
The struggle in North Dakota makes all of us who have children into warriors in the fight for continuity and a world order before the “overwhelming”—the disenfranchisement of the planet—took over. The spiritual implications of abrogating native title and the multi billion dollar theft of native land underscores the difference between true freedom and becoming subjects to a tyrannical economic system and the world wide police state.
I deplore the recent CITES decision in South Africa to not give maximum protection to elephants. Elephants need maximum Appendix I protection and the elimination of the ivory trade worldwide immediately, or humanity could lose a continent, and the place where humanity was born. Humanity cannot afford that kind of violence.
