America The Beautiful

I got to thinking about what is being done to the world as a result of addiction to profit. One president has called us oil junkies but he missed the mark, below the scab of addiction to oil is the root of the disease. Profit. I can guarantee that if profit were not possible men would not undertake enterprises that lay waste to everything as they seem to be doing at present.

Of course no one will decide to abandon profit. So I have made an artistic work depicting 'America The Beautiful': 15 years after the Keystone Pipeline. It is art and social commentary. It was a nice world and maybe Jesus will return and fry the bastards who ruined it like he promised he would. Maybe not, maybe we will just die in our own garbage and that will be that. But Jesus' POV does show a sense of divine displeasure at the way men have treated the earth. Leave it to Jesus to rock the boat!

15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,

16 And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!

17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,

18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!

19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. Revelation 18:15- 21 KJV (public domain)

The article at the link below describes the dangerous road our addiction to profit has set us walking down.

Below is what to look for 15 years after we feed the profit monkey on our back oil from the tar sands of Canada. This is one point of view, the other side simply claims they are benefiting humanity and causing no harm at all. Figures never lie, but quite often liars figure. Click on the image to enlarge it.

This image is in the same vein as the first it is titled 'Power Struggle' depicting the relationship between nature and industrialism.

Visionary misfits have always seen where the path leads and no one listens beyond stopping to call them fools or worse.
