Politics of the New Year.
February 15, 2007
This year, I’ve decided to become a little more rounded in my thoughts concerning politics, religion and design. There are so many personal ideas out there that it’s become this common practice to allow bias to become more truthful than facts. And with anything, you have to look at it from all perspectives. So with that said, my goals this year is to educate myself and strip away what i feel is true bias and seek out facts, or at least educate myself enought to know what is indeed closer to fact that faith of assuming what truth could be.
Here is the first small topic of a few topics for me:
Global Warming: Al Gore did a great job in his movie to bring forth a possible and very likely idea that we are doomed if we don’t start considering our own personal actions as mature adults and apply pressure to political leaders to set presidence on this issue. It was backed up with great evidence and i will allow this to be more fact since there isn’t much gain on his end. Meaning, if he was setting this up as a platform to run for President, then i would have to question his true motives. Is this just a ‘fear’ tatic to gain support or is it indeed something that needs to be addressed. I believe this needs to be addressed. He’s causing awareness that wasn’t there before and backing it up with deep insight and study. So if i’m going to take this as fact, then i need to adjust my own habits and start making new habits that help lower my own CO2 emmissions. One person can’t make a difference, but i believe many can (as in, all the others who were effected by his documentry). And having kids, if i can change bad habits into supportive habits so they inherit these, then I feel that i’ve done one part of my duty as a father/husband.
This year, i’m going to make choices that i feel will be geared towards doing my part to assist in this topic. With that said. The first 10 people to write me about this, and share their thoughts, feelings and any changes they will make, if any, will get a sticker pack from Hydro74. It’s not much, and even if you disagree with me, just tell me what you think. At least you took a moment and read this, and maybe you are effected in the same way that i was effected. who knows, just email me
Next topic, which will come soon, ..Politics.
i know none of this is design related, but there is more to Hydro than just mouse clicking 🙂 And i’m sorry for the typo’s, too lazy to click spell check!
