“Let them eat cake”

On my soap box again despite knowing people just don’t want to know.

Wiser and well known people have  advocated for other life forms and the ecology long before me.

Peter Singer

Albert Schweitzer

John Newton  (wrote Amazing Grace)

Irving Stowe and Dorothy Stowe, (founders of GreenPeace)

Casey Affleck

Alec Baldwin

James Cromwell

David Attenborough

And many many more

And there were movies

“The Day the Earth Stood Still” (re make)

And “Avatar’

“Let them eat cake”

a famous quote attributed to Marie-Antoinette, the queen of France during the French Revolution. As the story goes, it was the queen’s response upon being told that her starving peasant subjects had no bread.

Most people have this attitude and response to starving wild life.


I am often told

“don’t feed the birds they have to find their own food”

People don’t realize that humans in western culture have destroyed the homes and food sources of all other life forms.

Our norms and attitudes are causing the extinction of all life.

In our culture we don’t share with one another; never mind other life forms.

Karl Marx who advocated sharing – communism – is seen as evil.

And please know China and other so called communist countries have “state capitalism” not communism.

(I wrote a paper on Karl Marx when I majored in sociology)

Some one told me not to go on about the ecology because there is nothing that they can do:

but they and you can:

Do what you can in the microcosm

Feed the birds even if your neighbours abuse you because they don’t want the noise and the poop.

Google eco friendly homes and gardens for ideas:

Don’t use poisons:

Try your best to adhere to ahimsa

Don’t kill insects and mice etc

Enjoy your day

  1. Personally I’d rather eat cake then bread but that’s besides the point.
    I don’t scare the squirrels off when they get into my goats grain – hey, they gotta eat too – yanno
