Kusträddarna 2021

Meant to put up a longer weekend post yesterday but the day faded and I got lost in Zack Snyder's Justice League instead (review should be appearing here some time before summer - along with an overdue queue of around a hundred others) and forgot all about the auction items I was about to put up too just before a particular rebate code I'd been hoping to use expired.

Oh well.

The main motive of said planned post is above though, in the digital poster that Kusträddarna sent out this year, in conjunction to the Håll Sverige Rent movement, which I'm typing all in Swedish so y'all who actually have some knowledge thereof feel special about being able to partake in the implications of this before the main international audience... but basically it's a garbage harvesting scheme. A partially state-financed regimen where they send out free bags (various shapes and sizes), free gloves, and a written card for inspiration in a push to get people out to whatever shores they're nearest to and make a brave attempt to rid them of all these plastics that perpetual polluting persons are continually planting there.

Why does anyone just throw stuff away? Don't they care about these microplastics leaching into the ground and getting into their bloodstream via our water supply? Don't they care about the animals that choke on or get strangled by these artificial substances and die, knowing no better? Do they intentionally take the role of the great villain, in this world where we could be managing to build something good if there weren't so many hellbent on just breaking it all down, and making things shittier and harder for the rest of us in their venomous apathy and/or potential bitterness over how life didn't turn out worthwhile for them - so why should any of us have a future?!

Did that baby penguin ever do anything to you, huh? That you would provide it with a slow and agonizing death?

I'm just throwing out some theories as to why it is how it is here... and beckoning to whatever conscience peeps may have. If you happen to be throwing this kind of stuff around. Why? I do get why you might, but I don't think you get the consequences. Take responsibility. You'll feel better. We'll be better. The world will be a brighter place tomorrow. That our leaders are total idiots and asshats not befit to beckon us into this new age of prospering and goodness is no excuse. Let us be their role models.

So anyway, we headed out for a little trash-gathering adventure Saturday noon, managed to fill two full garbage bags on our trials, passed by a construction dumpster on the way home that seemed ideal for harboring said waste, and came home - content with our bidding - just as dark clouds drew overhead and the rain started pattering outside.

The timing was so perfect, and the sun was fierce before it, and the wind non-existent. Couldn't have asked for better weather.

Then come Sunday, I felt kind of under the weather and not fit to do much at all, and so the weekend passed by with some dues left undone and now I'm back at work and stressing again but... we did something. Had a lot of phone calls too. Unusual cool.

Happy Monday y'all.

    >Why does anyone just throw stuff away?

    Laziness, simplicity

    >Don't they care about these microplastics leaching into the ground and getting into their bloodstream via our water supply?

    Not enough to panic about it

    >Don't they care about the animals that choke on or get strangled by these artificial substances and die, knowing no better?

    Not enough to panic about it
    I think most people care infinitely more about domestic and household pets

    I think you answered your own question. 99% of evil is banal evil. Rarely is at a malicious being cackling in a high tower at the suffering of others. This is a potentially more dangerous evil because you can't see it in plain sight. Indifference, selfish care about their own, not my problem/don't tread on me types. Going green is great, but it doesn't supersede my 'right' to pursue the easier/less expensive route and if at happens to be at the expense of what I feel is lesser, then so be it. They will never admit to it, just try to explain it away with some smear-laden or inconsiderate, uncompromising narrative.

    It's maybe not so strange people feel more affinity towards a pet they've bonded with than a wild animal they have no particular ties to, but still, people like cute animals, wild animals are cute too, if we just had some better promos and posters we could move through...

    Personally I do prefer wild animals. They relieve me of responsabilities, but can still be interacted with and appreciated at a distance. And they don't disrupt the ecosystem as significantly as pets do. At least cats and dogs. All as nature intended.

    Mmm, the problems of the future today.

    Would've been interesting to have someone who actually lives the wasteful life of bane to answer, as I assume you don't? But astute observations indeed. People are a problem.
