After my “Another Depressing Blog from The Witch” I wonder what to do to make a difference?
Blog from October “A Few Of Us Are Sending Healing” is still on going.
But seriously zero population growth is the thing.
Many people who actually care about the environment baulk at the idea of zero population growth.
One of the complaints is “Babies are left to die in China”—Seriously this doesn’t have to happen.
For some it is against their religion and others have taken on these religious ideas as part of our culture.
No disrespect to The Church of Rome
When Constantine took over Christianity, I suspect his motives were to use it to control the empire.
There was a meeting in Nicaea in AD325 to decide what to put in the bible and what to leave out.
Yet there was a prohibition forbidding translation of the bible into native languages.
If I remember history, Lutheranism was started because the people were not allowed to read the bible?
The prohibition against contraception and abortion was implemented because Constantine wanted soldiers for his armies:
One of the reasons for the early witch hunts was to get rid of the women herbalist who offered contraception – the other of course to get rid of The Old Religion.
These days I believe that part of the reason people are opposed to zero population growth is that a culture takes its norms and mores from the main religion and people who have no religious beliefs still confirms to these norms and mores.
I sometimes wonder if the “Powers That Be” (multinationals), prefer to have as many consumers as possible 😛
I think the people of the world need the Louise Hay affirmation
“I am willing to change”
and be kind to non human life forms
