Meant to conceal for this specific purpose: to retain control through the limitation of realization. In order to keep people perpetually deceived, it is imperative to conceal the truth regarding the magnitude of environmental catastrophe our industrial activities are reaping upon the planet. As long as we are convinced that we must continue behaving as we have been for the last century in order to maintain our lifestyles and our standard of living we have become accustomed to, we will not realize the grave consequences of our actions until they've become irreversible. Even though we have, by all accounts, already reached this point of somber insolvency the custodial powers that be are committed to keeping us in the dark. Just keep consuming, continue driving your vehicle around in circles of futility, and ensure the supportive masque of death that underlies the capitalist psychosocial genocide mechanism remains steadfast in its loom. Don't question the ethics that have been artificially supplanted in your subconsciousness by those tyrants of necessity that market your wants and desires through the enshrinement of ignorance. The enslavement of the human race through materialism has been facilitated through the inherent lack of critical thought present in the majority. Ideas will be accepted uncritically as long as they are packaged attractively and appear immediately non-threatening and benign. There is, however, a price for every benefice and advantage assimilated without thought of consequence. The natural world is consistent in its reconciliation of opposites. What goes up must come down. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Every dog has its day. Even the black dog we are now courting as we selfishly press onwards in our narrow and insular philosophies of accumulation and non-accountability. The intoxication of our natural surroundings have begun to prove empirically detrimental to our health. Increasing incidence of disease, acceleration of environmental degradation, accumulation of endocrine disruptors in our drinking waters through the influx of industrial effluents, skyrocketing rates of cancer and chronic conditions of malady in the youth, alarming extinction rates of thousands of species of amphibians, birds and mammals. The list goes on and on. But no one is paying attention. They're too busy allowing themselves to be entranced by the pussy of prestige that accompanies wanton commercialism and perceived advantage. As long as we are content in our little bubble of bullshit we've accustomed to calling home, we are oblivious to the dissolution of reality all around us. I am ashamed to think that the only thing our children shall inherit from the present generation is our waste. The only legacy that modernism will leave our children is one of hatred and denial. The genesis of fetish through the wanton enculturation of opposition. In our haste to assimilate, we have forgotten our past and we have denied our future.

Only in our haste to fulfill apocalyptic prophesy would the most valued commodity (oil)
Be the very poison through which we condemn ourselves.

Only after the last tree has been cut down, only after the last river has been poisoned,
only after the last fish has been caught, only then will you find out that money cannot be eaten.
[Cree Prophecy]
