"Global Moral Lipodystrophy & the Micro Revolutions" -- Revisited again, sadly -- on Christmas Day 2011
Since my first post on this topic -- Christmas Day three years ago -- not much has changed -- the Developed World is still fat [ sic ] -- not "flat" -- and the Undeveloped or Developing World is still skinny and asymmetrically calorie-deprived versus the 10s of millions of Europeans & Americans who should be more grossly concerned about their ethical cellulite, intellectual stretch marks, and moral lives liposuctioned of essential Meaning.
So have you personally made a difference yet in rectifying the maldistribution of calories and economic opportunities across the space-time continuum or fabric of Planet Earth ?
If not, spend less time on Christmas Day eating and watching football -- and more time Thinking about and doing something concrete to nourish the Future of Humankind.
"Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
God is not dead; nor doth he sleep!
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men!"
[ From: "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" -- by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow -- written December 25th, 1864 in Cambridge, Massachusetts during the later days of the American Civil War ]
Merry Christmas ! -- December 25th, 2011
