Many of the blogs on this site rage against large corporations' attempts to slip chemicals into our food supplies without informing us on the labels or their attempts to change the genetic make-up of the food stocks, again without revealing such changes on the labels. Other blogs express our outrage at the mistreatment of our water, land and air (what used to be termed "the commons").
We should embrace the following message from His Holiness The Dalai Lama, carve it into our walls, our doors; tattoo it on our arms; print it on our banners, our tee shirts; screen it on our posters and shout it during our rallies:
"We take the existence of clean air and water, the continued growth of crops and availability of raw materials for granted. We know that these resources are finite, but because we think only of our own demands, we behave as if they are not. Our limited and self-centered attitudes fulfill neither the needs of the time, nor the potential of which we are capable."
