I saw this trailer at Amsterdamize. Watching the scenes of the 405 freeway makes me want to cry, truly. This, more than anything, is proof to me that we all need to step back and look at what we are doing to ourselves. Forget the environment, forget the oil. Just think about what existing like this is doing to our souls and how it carries its mark on us into every aspect of our lives.
I am convinced that if we don't, as a people, re-learn how to depend on ourselves for our needs, that we are doomed. By continuing down this path, where we have no need to exert ourselves to achieve our ends, there is no way that we can have a future of health and productive living. The longer we wait, the more our lives look like the 405 Freeway through Los Angeles.
There is hope, if we chose to make it happen.
