Well on the second day, I must admit it’s far too early to tell don’t you think?
However when looking back at last year … I’m hoping that it can only get better. With unprecedented natural and manmade disasters in over supply during 2009 what hope is there that 2010 will be any different to humanities usual annual menu? There will be genocide and human trafficking, destruction of the atmosphere, disease, poverty and the after effects of decolonisation -terror and the like-.
The line up is starting to look pretty normal when compared to -lets say- the last 200 years… no? So once again the primordial question is raised… What remains to be positive about?
Well for one, globally there is more access to alternate information so people can have the pleasure of making up their own minds. 1st world bullshit becomes more and more apparent to the world. Community based programmes are taking back the power in every sphere from democracy to education. There remain tribes unconquered by modernisation in the Amazon. The ice caps haven’t turned into slush puppy yet. Some minds are still unconverted by mainstream capitalistic dogma and superficial pop-culture. Beauty can still be found in the most unassuming places… if you care to look and no matter how clichéd and pukey it may sound … everyday some one, somewhere finds love.
