weary of conversation

Dave Pollard:

The ghastly BP oil spill is not the fault of a small group of evil people, nor would it have been averted if the leader(s) of BP and the other organizations now playing the blame game, cared more about the environment. I am beginning to believe the same is true of all social organizations. The importance of leadership, and of change initiatives, I think, are vastly overrated.

We are, each of us, just the space through which stuff passes. No one is that important, or consequential, and no one is in control.

This is just who we are, collectively, doing our best and discovering that we can do no better than bring about the sixth known great extinction of life on this planet.
