The title is nothing but the logic of greed: you want to be the one to benefit from
the destruction before some else gets the chance. You want to pre-empt somebody
else benefiting from the affair assuming of course that they would.
We are long past the point where we all need to take responsibility
for our individual contributions to Global Warming and the general
depletion of the planet regardless of what others may or may not
In this case, the US needs to take the high ground and reject the
Keystone XL Mass Suicide Pipeline. Let the onus of destroying
the planet fall on the next available alternative for the Canadians.
Let that alternative be responsible for committing or deciding not
to commit an Environmental Crime Against Humanity. Maybe
they’d do it on a smaller scale? Maybe they’d listen to their
citizens and reject it too!? You just don’t quite fully know
what will happen unless the US actually rejects the fucking thing.
Corporate profits come at the expense of the People’s pockets.
And the massive transfer of wealth from the Peoples’ Commons
to private for-profit corporations that the Keystone will be guilty
of is unacceptable. It concentrates wealth away from the People,
and that wealth of the commons is increasing having a very real
dollar value assigned to it.
