The political spiral of mountain lions in California -
posted 11 months ago
I’m not anti-gun or a “disneylander” and I don’t eat McDonald’s. There is something called balance and there is ego. Ego drives humanity. Many people kill for ideas, for sport and yes, for ego. That’s the smile. Human thinking, human ego has provided us with much but it may very well be the thing that takes it all away. The consciousness that is responsible for the manifestation of the human form is the same consciousness that is responsible for the manifestation of the millions of life forms on this planet, in the oceans, etc. Do more homework. Lion numbers have dropped dramatically. When is the last time you were in Africa? I can tell you from personal experience that lion populations are a small fragment of what they were 40 years ago and the remaining populations are under immense pressure.
On this planet, in this paradigm there is something called evolution. We are living in a different world and
we have progressed. A few hundreds years ago someone who was relatively unconscious could do limited harm but today with the advanced technology and nuclear weapons we face a hard choice and we no longer have the luxury of time. Wake up or go extinct! I know what I said ruffled your feathers a bit but again, the ego is insanely defensive and protective. You can come up with all the names, labels and attacks you want but understand in doing so you are simply validating my point.
Sounds like someone wrote an article that makes others feel more comfortable with their actions. The ego is a strange thing. I always have to laugh when you see guys smiling in front of a picture of a dead animal. What the hell? Why are they smiling? Like the animal has a chance against a gun. If you want to call it sportsmanship and if you want to call it fair. Let me drop you off in the middle of lion country without a gun, with just the way you came in and we'll come back the next morning and see how you faired.
