Celebrate yourself, live up to your full human potential! Think, care, and try . . .
Avoid going into denial and self deception
Understand and control your emotions and know they stem from hard-wired instincts
Supress your genetic urge to reproduce and try to convince others not to have kids, too
Realize greed is a hard-wired instinct and control it
Understand the Ponzi scheme stock market is designed to foster runaway greed
Do not allow yourself to be brainwashed by politicians, religious fanaticists or conspiracy theorists
Understand that our leaders are liars entrenched in self deceipt, and vote accordingly
Be egalitarian and fair to others
Cut back on your use of energy and water
Walk, ride a bike, or use public transport
If you must drive, use a small car or a hybrid (No SUVs or Hummers, please!)
Grow your own garden, or at least some things
Eat as low as you can on the food chain
Minimize trips, energy usage, use fluorescent light bulbs
Install a solar water heater
Live frugally and recycle
Barter and trade goods and services
Do not eat or drink out of plastic or Styrofoam
Problem is, what about all those other people who refuse to take such actions? See Selection for Uncaring Humanoids.
