If you are looking to recapture magical moments like this, you had better get a worthy cause that enjoys public support.
It seems the hippies are rather confused and lack perspective when it comes to championing causes worthy of protest. They tell us to explore alternative sites? I tell them to explore alternatives causes. I have compiled a list in hopes of helping to educate the hippies, and also to assist them in breaking out of bondage from the rich land interests.
I realize this picture is very hard to look at. The mere sight of it breaks my heart. These are causes that need people who are passionate (but misguided) like the hippies. MILLIONS of people have died at the hands of ethnic death squads and millions more are dying of starvation, yet nothing is done.
Why is that? Is this tree sit a sign of just how screwed up our society has become? When we have hippies in trees crying bloody murder and a world away a government allows the unmitigated mass murder of an entire race? Get some perspective folks, please, I beg of you.
My God people, with all the insanity going on in Iraq I really have to question your motives for protesting the removal of a few contemporary trees that were originally planted for simple landscaping. Please get a grip! Thousands of our brave American troops and countless Iraqi civilians have been killed. How can you waste your time and energy during such monumental times? Could it be the rich land interests are controlling you?
IF IT IS TREES YOU WANT TO SAVE
WE GOT UGHM!
CAUSE #3: MORE TREES TO SAVE IN THE BAY
Here we have a case of Big Lumber about to fell a truly old growth forest, yet no one fights for these trees. Why is that? Help these trees, this truly is an ecosystem worth protecting! Also of note is the fact that these trees are right here in the bay area off of highway 17.
CAUSE #4: SAVE THE RAINFOREST
Whatever happened to saving the rainforest? Have we become so overpowered by selfish rich land interests that a cause as notable as saving trees can be taken to the illogical extreme they preach today? Apparently so, for everyday thousands of acres of the rainforest are cut down and not so much as a word comes out of the Berkeley. Could it be the rich land interests have supplied our hippies with too much dope? Who knows, something isn’t right though, clearly!
If this argument were really about doing the right thing these protests would never have taken place. This isn’t about doing the right thing though, its about protecting property values and resale values. The people who chose to live near Memorial Stadium did so after the stadium had been there for many years.
Now they seek to dominate UC policy and they use the hippies as their childlike pawns. Hippies, I personally implore you, do the right thing! Take up one of these worthy causes and make history by doing something for the good of man and not the selfish few rich land owners. This land is for all of California and not their private retirement community of burnt out radical has beens.
