We are like monkeys with our fists stuck in the jar
But we can’t see what we are doing.
We don’t want to see what we’re doing, so we convince ourselves there’s still hope. We convince ourselves we don’t have to do something because we believe something else.
We say we care about our children’s future, but our actions show them we don’t care.
But everything is okay in our minds if we convince ourselves we care about their future. And really believe it. You know, like, really, really believe it.
That’s what makes humans unique you know—the ability to believe anything but the truth.
It’s our super power. We just haven’t figured out how to control it yet.
We’re convinced we can get out of the climate change conundrum without doing anything or having to be uncomfortable. Someone will figure out something and tell us what to do.
We have to change the way we do stuff. We have to start working together more, and we need to get really good at it.
We have to let go of that false hope in the jar. You know, the one with our fist in it.
