My partner Claire (bless her little cotton socks) likes to sign online petitions about this and that, and mostly about issues relating to animals because we love cute little animals and lets face it.. who doesn’t? So at some point in time Claire supplied change.org with my email address because there was something she thought I might also be interested in signing.
So I looked at whatever it was and then promptly unsubscribed to all further email communication from change.org. But still I am receiving unwanted email from this organization. I clicked the “unsubscribe” link in their latest email and was directed to a page that informed me that I was currently not subscribed to any of their mailing lists. This confirmed my earlier un-subscription but did not explain why I was receiving another email from them.
If these people can’t manage a f**king mailing list correctly then what makes them think anybody at all should sign up to any of their bulls**t petitions at all? These organizations are always wanting you to sign some petition to stop Syngenta killing the Bees, or Monsanto poisoning some innocent Banana farmers, or the Japanese murdering whales, or any number of other sad kind of tale they can throw at you. Maybe you agree that this or that is bad and you sign a petition and then feel good because you have helped save the world in some way or another.
If you think of pretty much all abuse and exploitation that happens in this so called modern and civilized society we exist in.. the common thread is that it is all committed for money. Would anybody be bothering to kill Elephants and Rhinos for ivory, mill puppies for their soft fur (add more, I’m sure you can think of a dozen or more without taxing your nonce) if they didn’t want to or need to do these terrible things for money? The simple answer is NO! They would probably not do any evil s**t at all if there was no monetary gain from it.
So these wretched organizations should man the f**k up (or woman the f**k up if you want some gender equality bandied about) and make a f**king protest against the oppressive monetary systems we all are enslaved by!
This might sound rather simple and even elementary to you dear reader but what you really need to know is that all of these organizations exist in these evil oppressive monetary systems and without those systems they would cease to exist! So you can see why they just send you endless petitions that you sign and that never really change life on earth one iota in any meaningful way.. because they need the monetary systems that allow them to keep their seemingly important jobs so they can continue to buy flatscreen televisions and all the other s**t that the aforementioned flatscreen television tells them they must acquire!
So there you have it in a nutshell.. the most daunting problem facing mankind.. evil monetary systems that enslave all of humankind! You can tell your grandchildren you read about it first right on this here blog! And don’t forget to boycott online petitions that only serve to keep themselves in business, until they start to address the real problem that all others spring from!
In a month or so I expect I will receive yet another kilobyte of digital effluence from change.org and then maybe I’ll make a new gmail email address, signup at change.org, and make a petition to stop change.org sending people irrelevant online petitions. I am sure zillions of people will sign it 😀
