Man’s relationship with the natural world

Thought-provoking, and kind of sickening, even in cartoon form.

We really are a sick, abusive species.

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    This may explain why there is an obsession in the entertainment industry with post apocalyptic scenarios where modern civilization is destroyed. If the scenario was not brought by an outbreak of zombies, then it’s because of extraterrestrial aliens. But videos and stories like this serve a purpose to try to help people become aware of how destructive humans can be and perhaps try to humble those who claim to live a simple life. I think the hermits in New Mexico or out in the boonies are more mindful than the rest of the population who live in “civilized” cities.

    That IS terrifying… Sometimes we go through our lives day in and day out without realising the kind of impact we are having in the world – this reminds me so much about the notion of “living with intention” (where minimalism, sustainable/strategic consumption may come into view).

    Thanks mochimac, I’m sharing this video with the world!

    Kind of a downer, but food for thought. The artwork’s great, too.
