I am a fan of signing petitions. Their implicit collectivism can help invigorate our awareness of shared principles, ideally supporting purposeful actions steeped in egalitarian reckonings of our widely shared best interests.
I added a little comment to a petition I recently supported, the aim of which is to ban fracking oil tainted wastewater from being sold on the cheap as irrigation for food crops. As is perhaps made clear by the contents of my comment, I think it’s important for us all to speak up from a place of individual selfhood, in orderto better underscore how we as regular, everyday people are the ones who are the most impacted when plutocratic dealings go unregulated.
My petition comment:
It’s well past time for the self-appointed masters of the petroleum universe to stop being so gross.
