The Story of Plastic (Animated Short) pulls back the curtain on the plastic pollution headlines, revealing the true causes and consequences of the global plastics crisis.

There are names for what binds us:
strong forces, weak forces.
Look around, you can see them:
the skin that forms in a half-empty cup,
nails rusting into the places they join,
joints dovetailed on their own weight.
The way things stay so solidly
wherever they’ve been set down —
and gravity, scientists say, is weak.
And see how the flesh grows back
across a wound, with a great vehemence,
than the simple, untested surface before.
There’s a name for it on horses,
when it comes back darker and raised: proud flesh,
as all flesh,
is proud of its wounds, wears them
as honors given out after battle,
small triumphs pinned to the chest —
And when two people have loved each other
see how it is like a
scar between their bodies,
stronger, darker, and proud;
how the black cord makes of them a single fabric
that nothing can tear or mend.

There is no need to use violence to get exclusive power over a country/state or continent. The existing state structure is available and can be put into use immediately for the execution of any anti-human program.
The speed and depth of this occurring and the absence of serious resistance within the government show that anti-humanism is not a breach of political ideology and that personal freedom has been a lie to keep children calm. Plutocracy hiding under democracy just continues “business as usual” of Robber Baron capitalism, even in the absence of any profit or capital (money=dead).
The systems of schooling, local government, media, justice, army and police are already deeply imbued with elitism, racism, sexism, anthropo-centrism, species-ism, reductionist materialism and contempt for the ability of normal people/citizens to live their lives based upon their own observations. These critters are clearly not to be trusted and must be controlled from cradle to grave in order to bring a maximum of profit to their owners, the ever-continuing elites.
Rigid application of “expert” science and “authoritarian” rules have overshadowed the scientific, cultural and moral developments of the last +100 years. Can a civilization that refuses to apply its scientific discoveries in physics, biology, sociology, psychology, … be expected to survive long ? What freedom or progress can we expect when we entrust data-management to people and institutions who are far from any control by the people, except from more efficient exploitation from above ?
The absurd amounts of money amassed by a very small number allows them to “buy” or suppress any non-conform initiatives, turning whole sections of society into mindless factories for (mis)guiding humans. As Rockefeller said: “I can hire half of humanity to enslave the other half”. Most of human culture of the last few 1000s of years can be erased by collective fear, spread by media and governments in unison.
We in the West still remember the 1933-1945 disaster as it was followed by perpetual war somewhere in the world and the genocide of non-white populations. Quo vadis homo ?
