Profit is not our savior.

ImageProfit, it seems today, is what makes our world go around.  If there is no profit we feel we are doomed.  However, in making profit our savior, we have encouraged our desire to consume to a point of drastic irresponsibility in order to feed the profit.  We are led to believe that over consumption is the tangible key to happiness.  Now that we are consuming beyond our means, our fear for lack of resources has risen.  This fear is brought about by our own choices, yet we feel it is out of our control.  That makes no sense, right?  Is it because we feel so very individually isolated?  Is the addiction to extreme consumerism too strong?  Is it because we are just the people, and if anything is going to change it has to be done by the governing powers?  Whatever the reason, one thing is clear: Profit is not our savior.  It plays a role and it can exist as a good thing, but it is not our savior.  When we realize that, we may decide to move forward.
