Trashopoly – it’s no longer a game

This is a blog I did in June 2020 and we are in real terms still trashing the planet and its habitability for us dumb monkeys at an ever increasing rate.

June 2020

Humanity got lucky. Sapiens for most of their existence have been hunter gatherers. Depending on which hypothesis you follow we first evolved in Africa and then spread out across the planet’s surface. We became one of the most widespread species that have existed and possibly the only one of our size. For a lot of our existence we have had to deal with a series of ice ages and then for some reason during this last interglacial period we decided to settle down and started to plant crops and keep herds of animals. Our “success” if you want to call it that has happened in the last 12,000 to 14,000 years. Following our settling down we have been busy inventing things with little thought to their loading on planetary systems and instead on how useful they are to our individual lives. Nor have we considered our human numbers and what the combination of numbers and resource use has on the planet’s configuration. Few politicians, entrepreneurs, business leaders look at whether our progress is undermining the planet’s ability to support life. It becomes increasingly clear that humanity is playing the game of Trashopoly because it is trashing the planet with little understanding or care to what the future will be like.

A dispute – corporations and tax

I took this photo recently of what was presumably a Cafe Nero on the corner of Charlotte Street in Fitzrovia, London. It appears from the notice that the bailiffs had to repossess the property judging by one notice on the window while a second describes the amount of tax paid by the organisation, a reference that I have seen before. Cafe Zero featured in Private Eye’s logos as they should be. Not that they are only ones. Not many years ago during a London Pride event the large crowd started shouting, “Pay your tax” as the Starbucks float went past. Our societies are becoming very broken yet governments seem unwilling to tackle taxing companies and corporations enough for our services to function correctly. When rich individuals or organisations are able to donate and fund political parties democracy is undermined and one person, one vote no longer works as it should. The system is well and truly broken apart for those making up the 1%.

Wanton Damaging of the Environment and the Destruction of Exploited Labourers’ Work

Why do we allow corporations to get away with this? It is time that corporations and their executives were brought to answer for their actions. They enhance and further the us and them, the haves and have nots in our society.
