I happened to have an early work day today, and decided to come home and veg out on the couch while watching TV. We have Netflix, and highlighted on the menu was a Netflix original movie, Virunga. The description was of a documentary depicting the life of rangers in the Virunga Park, Congo, with an emphasis on the protection of mountain gorillas. Who doesn’t love gorillas, right?
You have to watch it. You have to sit through every second of it. If you don’t have Netflix, sign up for the free month, watch the movie, then cancel your subscription. It’s worth it. Trust me.
Virunga isn’t a story of a group of rangers trying to protect a park and it’s mountain gorillas. It’s a story of what we, the citizens of the world, have allowed to happen, over and over, due to our apathy.
SOCO is a UK problem – and I implore any UK followers to join any call to action against this greedy corporation.
For the US followers: Walmart, the Koch brothers, pretty much any politician, and the list goes on – your well being isn’t even on their radar. It’s all about money and power. As long as you are good sheep and do what you’re told, getting all excited about the possibility of saving pennies, they’re very happy making billions.
Stop being sheep. Be aware of how the top earners make their money and what sacrifices others have to make in order for that to happen.
