These are some things I strongly believe in

Updated: Nov 23, 2023


My sister asked me the other day. What are some things asked me to list three of them. I will list them in order of importance to me, but there will be more than three. First, I believe the planet is in trouble because of worsening environmental conditions. The human race needs to get to a point where we can live sustainably without causing more damage to the natural environment. We need to save forests for their contribution to air quality and the beauty of trees. I am not against eating meat. But we need to find a way to treat the animals more humanely. I am a massive fan of a couple of sustainable alternatives. For instance, I like the idea of making chicken out of the cells of chickens, so we do not have to kill so many. I favor eating more seafood, which is better for you, anyway. Second, I think that every dog or cat deserves a good home and to live a whole life. I understand other cultures may not believe the same way, but some cultures revere certain animals or want to live in harmony with nature and animals. There is no excuse for abusing an animal. Third, I do believe that humans are not alone in the Universe. We must be prepared to be humble when we finally know this to be true. Science fiction can and has predicted various possibilities. I understand that we cannot count on the fact that alien life will be anything like us and might have different priorities than our own. At this time, I believe in the democratic party over Republicans. The government should reflect our core beliefs and should not favor making rich people richer. I am glad President Biden is concerned about all citizens. I believe there should be strong safeguards against the democratic system falling apart. The series Star Wars taught me how fragile democracy truly is. Recently, the insurrection in Washington, DC, on Jan 6th encouraged by the former president and his supporters, has shown me how gullible and ignorant many citizens are; other examples include early Rome as an example of how easily democracy can fail. I strongly believe in the death penalty as an option for the worst criminals. I understand it needs to be used as a last resort, but still, I think it needs to be an option, and nothing anyone says can change my mind about that. In conclusion, these are just some of the things that I strongly believe in. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I appreciate this post in particular and find it very thoughtful and thought-provoking.


I read somewhere once, and here I quote in a very self-aggrandizing fashion: "The most thought-provoking thing in our thought-provoking time is that we are still not thinking." Taken out of context this way, the quote is virtually meaningless, but so many human activities - undertaken ostensibly for health, safety, and welfare - seem to end up as expedient devices for our comfort without consideration of the longer - term implications. I guess this is the 'not thinking' the author was referring to.


Or at least that seems to have been the case in the past. I do think the 'thought-less-ness' is changing - a little too…
