Homero Gómez González

At home, the oligarchs poison us slowly, with more shit in the food supply, more sewage in the waterways, more pollution in the air, water, and soil. Trump and his monstrous allies stand for profits over people, very much at the expense of our lives. (Their cultists, the Fascist Fifth of the population, are seemingly eager to sacrifice themselves and their children for their masters’ cause.) Other life forms are even more expendable.

Abroad, the capitalist gangsters are more direct and upfront with their murders. The Monarch Butterfly advocate Homero Gómez González has been found dead after missing for two weeks. He was murdered by gangsters and/or illegal loggers, essentially one and the same where illicit businesses are entities of organized crime.

Consumer demand, for drugs, lumber, avocados, much of it from the U.S., drive Mexico’s violent kleptocracy.

Know what you’re buying; look before you leap into complicity. The horrors are usually hidden away behind the packaging and the advertising, so start with the assumption that the corporate entity is a criminal enterprise. One simple act of refusal is to not sell you eyes to the Stuporbowl. A second is to stop using Amazon.

Gómez’s video of massing butterflies are mesmerizing.

The murder of environmentalists and other dissenters is standard operating procedure in authoritarian regimes. The Republican Party, and the props and fools who vote for them, are moving us in this direction every day.

    we are currently ingesting 2 teaspoons of plastic a day, every day, through micro particles in our water and air.

    It is all quite depressing. I really did not want to wait until November to see some hope that all sense of honor and decency are not gone. I do have to remind myself that we are held hostage by a minority. Uneducated and manipulateable minority. Who are played as a computergame by greedy gangsters.
