7 billion and counting

Reaching this human milestone is NOT a reason to celebrate.

I found the quote below very stimulating, regardless of your diet.

Truly, man is the king of beasts, for his brutality exceeds theirs. We live by the death of others: we are burial places! I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look on the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men.

~Leonardo da Vinci

But then he might had been talking about the economic battelgrounds that led to all these “occupy Wall Street” and its variants. I would also put a monetary spin on this:

While we ourselves are the living graves of murdered beasts, how can we expect any ideal conditions on this earth?

~George Bernard Shaw

The “REAL” identity of the 7th billion person, be s/he Fillipino or Indian or Russian will always be a mystery, nevertheless I know for sure we are moving into unclear territory as this person reaches adulthood.

It is a VERY STEEP curve !
