Does that mean that I’m angry, bitter, and holding a grudge? Nope.
I came to realize that there are two facets to forgiveness: giving up the need for revenge, and absolving the guilty party of responsibility.
But the other facet of forgiveness was not as clear-cut. I felt there was…
Founded in 2014. Change the world wanted to create a information resource website, combining…
So I decided to create a facebook page, I wanted to take things in a little bit of a different direction. I wanted to focus on facts and science combined with ways to help stop global warming and inequality in the world.
By being on facebook it is in a location where it can reach more people and appeal to a wider audience and I am trying to make a project which appeals to more people than global warming websites or conspiracy websites. Since there is still quite a “hippy” or “liberal” or “crazy right wing” association with these issues and many of the websites are not really helping get away from these stereotypes.
I’ve also noticed a lack of places that are clear about their information and that actually give ideas of what you can do to help.
So please check it out :)
Following on from my previous blog post, let’s actually talk practical things you can do as a human being and I’m not talking switching off your electronics or other silly little things which bare little relevance to actually saving the planet.
First of all! Stop eating red meat. If you care about the planet and are still eating red meat then you may as well leave all of your electronics on permanently all year.
Take an interest in science, look at developing technology. There are many things you can learn on the internet and ways you could be developing alternatives. Society needs cheap alternatives. The more engineers and scientists we have, the more likely these breakthroughs will be. Humans are not going to change because they watched a video. Yes awareness is needed but without viable alternatives it really means nothing.
Do you have some money? Do you research, invest in companies offering alternatives. Bio-fuel is looking very positive! Plus these companies could earn you money if they do well and they need investors.
Build your own garden and grow your own vegetables. Transporting food is another big factor. If you’re not very good at gardening, buy local produce. Companies even offer local food delivered to your door.
Economy & Inequality:
Stop shopping at large business, go to local markets and small businesses. Do your research on where you spend your money. This will put money into your local economy and boost your area. Small businesses need your buying power!
Also large companies, some are more ethical than others. Do your research. Who looks after their employees? Who pays well? You’re buying power is more powerful than you know. Raise awareness about companies which are good and those whom are bad.
Check out petitions and keep up-to-date with news and politics. VOTE!!!! Sign petitions, be active! This also helps being involved in the community.
Do you have extra time? Do you have a talent? Can you share this? Is there somewhere you can volunteer? Helping your community is one of the most rewarding things you can do and you never know how far it can go in developing others.
These are ways which don’t have to cost you anything extra and can even save you money in the long run while helping the two biggest problems which currently face us as a society.
Have ideas? Feel free to add more :)
Yes I said it. You’re the reason the world is screwed up.
What?! Me?! No it can’t be. It’s the ruling elite, the dark over-lords! They’re to blame. They manipulate us!
And yet it still comes back to being lazy. In fact we’re so lazy that we try to blame it on someone else instead of ourselves and you might hate me for saying this but it’s time the conspiracy theorists had some reality.
Why was money introduced? It’s easier. Why do we get other people to make our food? Because it’s easier! Why do we buy everything from other people? Because it’s easier!
The inequality of the world today exists for two reasons, one because we as humans are lazy and will always take the easier path and two because profit is a big motivator for all humans. So when we get something which is easy and profitable, we pretty much snatch it with both hands.
It’s not our fault, we evolved to take the easier route. After all, who with any intelligence would take the long route just for the sake of it? The sad part is that we lack long term vision and we do not necessarily think or know of all the consequences.
It makes the story more interesting to believe there’s these evil people which destroyed the good life but in reality it tends to be more that as humans we are often misguided in when we think we’re doing something good. Also society changes, what one society thought would be utopia has become a nightmare for the next generation.
Why are we dependent on oil? Why have we not switched to other sources? Because it’s still cheaper and easier than all other options. The same goes for money, it is cheaper and easier to just stick with it. Sweatshops? Yeap, cheaper and easier. Take most problems of the world and it pretty much comes down to those two things.
So the real question? What are you actually doing about it? What are the conspiracy theorists actually doing about it? This is what we really need to talk about. Because we have all these conspiracy theorists waving their arms in the air and telling people we need awareness but we’re not actually doing anything.
So ask yourself, what am I going to do about it?

americans seem to think there are two accents in england
- tally ho old chum cheerio yes yes wot wot
- YOU AIGHT M8 I’LL FUCK YA UP FOR LOOKIN AT MY TELLY
which is 100% true
actually everyone thinks that
but english people seem to think americans have two accents
- well hidey ho thare I was just goin to round up them there horses
- woah gnarly waves dude lets go eat a hamburger and smoke some weed
So true bro
So not true! The British know at least 3. The southern accent, the cali surfer dude and the Italian New Yorkers. Yo Johnny where’s my cuppa kwafeeee?
Also high school cheerleader is a popular one, like omgaawwwwwdddd. Totally cute! BFFS 4evaaaaaaa!
So I think that counts as 4.
Also it’s all the American films and tv shows. You guys keep filming in the same places (mostly due to tax reasons).
Though it’s still better than the awful accents which you think are British when actually both kinds make every British person want to scream. So in reality you actually know no British accents at all!
