Response to phantom power (Reply #1)

12. We are not 'in-control'

 

I was once at an Anishanabe (aka Chippewa or Ojibwa) gathering whe every public speech began with something that sounded to me like 'nin-get-a-ma-gess' (apologies to any Native speakers who know how badly I am surely transcribing it). It translates as 'I am humble in the eyes of the Creator.' What an inspiring and relevant perspective to always begin from.

The fools described in the OP are coming from exactly the opposite place, and they will surely fail, doing more damage to the ecosystem the whole while. But they will garner the support of the 1%, who also fancy themselves Gods.
