Thoughts after waking from a dream where the sun was rising in the west and careening northward and a caravan of police cars full of arrested people were heading for my home to arrest me...
Capitalism steals the only thing we have; time. Time to have fun, time to learn, time to enjoy the company of others. We are chained to our chairs, cubicles, labs, construction zones, food lines, benefits distributors, until we are too old to do anything about what is really happening in our world. Capitalism is that which robs all but the "winner takes all". We give a little here, a little there, until all our time (which now we have to buy back to even have a vacation) is gone and we are buried in the sands of time, forgotten, lost, moldering in Mother Earth.

Capitalism cannot exist within the framework of an equitable economic system. Capitalism will destroy all equity because there is always someone willing to take more than their share for a perceived cleverness or "right" to take more. This false perception, this idea that they are somehow more clever or "worth" more will destroy all life on planet Earth as it is a mental disease, a construct within the mind of a primitive animal. That false elevated sense of worth is the foundation of all religion, all empire, everything wrong with our world.
Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and Bill Gates, just because you are very clever does NOT make you worth more. The underlings beneath your status are more "intelligent" as you step on their heads for your elevation. Your bones will rot in the ground, long forgotten, in less than 100,000 years, a brief spark of stupidity that ends the polymer epoch. The next dominant creatures trying to find what happened to us will find polymers everywhere in this layer of Earth. It will be the defining characteristic, not silicone, though there are self deceived dreamers who never see the obvious and will tell you that this is the "Silicone" age. All Silicone is wrapped in plastic as well as everything else, even your metal cans are lined with polymers.
Because of this greed of the clever apes, everything they make is garbage. It is all to be thrown away into massive dumps of unusable trash for the sake of profit/empire. We have become the age of garbage. Everything we make is to be someday thrown in a landfill; wasted, destroyed, all for the sake of the Empire of Money.
The most heinous, hideous waste of "our" natural resources is the use of them for war. Nothing we make for war is ever meant to be reused or recycled. It cannot be, as the use of it destroys the devices/weapons and all around it. It turns the Earth into a wasteland, a toxic garbage dump.
"Love lost, such a cost,
Give me things
that don't get lost.
Like a coin that won't get tossed
Rolling home to you."

I know I anthropomorphize in the descriptions of my avian friends. I don't think it's a sin. It is the only way I can describe to my human friends what I am observing in my avian friends. I do try to adopt the view as a different species than human and do my best to have no judgments.
That said, I do have an attitude towards one jay who seems to feel it necessary to "alarm" squawk at me all the time. I have been scolding that one whenever they're around squawking at me. There has been benefits to my scolding them. That one is quieting down a bit. Especially when they find that I still give them peanuts.
Penelope continues to say thank you, as well as a couple of others. There's one who flies to the feeder, never touching down and takes a peanut out of the tuna can while hovering for just a fraction of a second and is gone in a heartbeat. So many different personalities and styles of motion.
And then there is Penelope, who has taken peanuts from my hand. She is the one who thanks me for the peanuts, while on the feeder. It is a strange relationship I have with her. She is the one tossing the smaller peanuts out of the feeder in favor of the larger peanuts. Those are the ones the crows are getting, and probably a squirrel or two.
The crows give in to the jays' demands, jays are tough birds. They give Barred Owls hell often. By feeding my jays the way I'm feeding them I am able to keep them away from our "other" feeding areas. We have some suet cages and a couple other seed feeders around for the variety of birds that come through our world here.
In the meantime my crow has put out the call and 3 other crows come down and swiftly take all the peanuts and are gone. It's one of the most fun games I've ever played and the crows and I are playing it against the jays.
