“Let them eat cake”

Seeing James Cromwell on “Sunrise” —morning television

motivated  me to re post this

He was saying how visiting an abattoirs in the mid 1970s  caused him to become vegan

think i will repost my vegan post too

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.

Don’t chop down trees

Trees don’t light fires

humans do

Makes more sense to get rid of arsonists rather than trees

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


I wrote and published this sci fi short story a few years ago (under the above title) when the human population was only 7.4 billion:

(1st published 4th April 2017)

It is now  8 billion.

Our cultural norms and the Protestant Ethic are causing the extinction of all life.

I wrote this as social satire and sympathetic magic

I realize my writing style doesn’t fit what people expect

My excuse –I majored in sociology not literature 😛

I wanted to put my idea that humans are not indigenous to the planet

A few lines  from this short story:

“Most humans think that those who live in harmony with the environment are primitive and inferior. Actually they don’t think.

They just mindlessly conform to what those in power and their entertainment media tell them.

 They are really stupid but consider themselves superior to all other life forms because they talk:

They think if something or someone doesn’t talk they don’t understand.

They thoughtlessly destroy everything. They call some creatures vermin, when humans are the vermin. They kill insects and destroy all the trees despite the fact that insects and trees are essential.

And everything literally goes down the drain polluting the oceans instead of nourishing other life.”

 In the following book I hope to help those who wish to develop their clairvoyant abilities.

In “The Clairvoyant Experiences Of A Sceptic” I told a few of my clairvoyant experiences.

Listening to others similar stories made me realize that

it is so much better if you can have these experiences first hand.

Kung fu tz  (Confucius) say “Perseverance prospers”

So don’t give up – you will succeed

And use the recorded meditations in my blog

The clairvoyant Experiences of a Sceptic is not a literary masterpiece

but a true story. I majored in sociology not literature

I dont know the meaning of life:

nor understand the nature of reality:

I do know physical death is not the end.

And there are so many amazing stories omitted so as not to break client confidentiality.

The second part I wrote as therapy and had not intended to include.

It wasn’t included in the original l publication

( I started shaking when I tried to write about the abuse so it is badly written and a great deal omitted)
