What if Game of Thrones was a metaphor for today’s world?

In Game of Thrones, the different houses fight each other to get the throne, but instead they could be banding together to fight a much bigger threat: the white walkers. I think we’re in a similar situation. We have all the political parties fighting for a seat in power and countries fighting each other for resources. But we could be banding together to fight a bigger threat: the planet dying.

Our lives are tied to the well being of our planet, we depend on water, forests, deserts, oceans, fishing, breeding, farming. But instead we take all it has to give us and more, we don’t live in harmony with it.

This video shows how man has impacted the environment:

Capitalism has gone too far. Maybe money is the root of all evil? Russell Brand points out: either ditch capitalism and save the planet or ditch the planet and save capitalism.

I’m sick of the people in power not looking at the wider context. Caring more about money and staying in power than people and the planet.

These are some ideas I have about our dying planet:

Causes:
– Overpopulation
– Capitalism
– Wars

Direct results:
– Human and animal deaths
– Deforestation
– Fracking
– Pollution
– Climate change
– Housing shortage
– Job shortage

Indirect results:
– Terrorism
– Rioting
– Protesting
– Starvation
– Low quality of life
– Suicide

It’s not looking good for us all and future generations. We need to stop having wars, stop climate change, use renewable energy, make products using bio-degradable packaging, stop fracking and deforestation. We’re all going to die anyway, everything we attain is borrowed, just like our time here, let’s band together as humans and fight to save the planet, and explore space together.


I hope this had some value to your mind. If you enjoyed it, help me out and share it so other people can benefit/enjoy it too. Thanks.

Don’t ignore the ideology and attitude of the party you’re voting for: Promises can be broken.

Don’t focus so much on the policies that you ignore the ideology and attitude of the party you’re voting for. Once people are in power, policies can change and promises can be broken. But if you trust that the leader cares more about doing what’s right than saving face, I think that’s worth taking into account.

I’d love a psychologist to psychoanalyse all the political party leaders, because they all have certain personalities, body languages, tones, vibes and attitudes, that lead me to either respect them or distrust them and their whole ideology/party.

I wish I could vote for Nicola Sturgeon, she seems strong, intelligent, compassionate, fair and fearless. I like her vibe and attitude. Natalie Bennett seems sincere and prioritises the planet and humankind, which is pretty important!

Who or which party is in line with your values?

If you’re not sure who to vote for you can watch the BBC live debate or visit this website where Greenpeace have outlined what they think is the worst and best parts of all the parties manifestos.

Don’t forget to vote on May 7th.
