I’m on my way to Cali Dec. 14th to Jan 5th to finish recording and producing my next and final four songs for my EP 2020 (out hmm around March, 2020, duh). I realized something odd, all the people I communicate with in LA – without exception, do not mention, not even in passing, the fires that are ravaging California!
So, I have a broader comment on human beings: we are both delusional (which I knew) and oblivious. OK, let me bring this down to Earth here. We humans are built to react, and quickly too, to immediate threats (the lion attacking, etc.); we are built to think about this crop this season, this year, maybe; and at least 50% of us do not even think that we gotta put away some nest eggs LOL for old age – shoot, until the 19th century (the industrial revolution), most of us didn’t even live to old age!
This is why there is a climate change calamity coming up. The socio-political arena we are facing – that we’ve always faced! – is that different people have varying levels of obliviousness and delusionalsness. And, Friends, Followers and Fans, in a Democracy, you got accept this, you got deal with it, and ooh, you got learn to compromise, and not put airs of I-know-more-than-thou! It’s the only way people. So, vote your say on Nov. 3rd, 2020!
