The Ecocosmology blog points out:
The human species at this time is not doing so well on one of the aspects of The Test, Tenet 3(a). We are destroying our home world which means we will not even get to Tenet 3(b)-(f).(The Mysticism of Failure). Those who are destroying the earth are statistically most likely to have tortured and harmed various animal species in violation of the law of the United States. Such laws exist because we are a great nation of enlightened laws:
Mahatma Gandhi said, “the greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way it treats its animals.” The truth in this statement should prompt police, investigators and prosecutors to vigorously investigate and prosecute – to the fullest degree possible – those who abuse animals in America.(National District Attorney's Association, link broken use this). One of the tenets of Ecocosmology specifically is in accord with that American understanding:
This tenet warns that nothing should be destroyed or become extinct by our behaviour, because a necessary clue to our survival may be hidden in that species.(Tenet Four Basics). Those who think that survival in this cosmos is as easy as abusing something or dominating others are less evolved than required.
It is refreshing to see the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to a world leader who is speaking out against destruction.
Congratulations President Obama on winning the prize while you struggle against the warmongers in the U.S. government who want only to destroy.
Congratulations to President Barack Obama and those in his administration who support the way of peace.
UPDATE (a year or so later): Things change. Obama became corrupted by power and is now one of the destroyer class.
