The Jungle called home
In the recent environmental upheaval against the so called “the good guys” -SM Development Corp.” cliche it seem, the jungle we live is not purposely for giant malls and greedy contractors only, basically it is for everybody, not by piece or by cultivation of its gorgeous sex appeal, hence for sustainable environmental preservation.
The emerging economics of the Philippines is unique for it is like Mordor- Lord of the Rings three-logy- two sides have valid claims on how its kingdom pursue its advancement to sustainable growth. These two sides are the Jungle invaders and the Jungle avengers.
They look nice and very sophisticated able to talk they way everywhere, making each deal like they have the promise of a champion sales comparable to Demigods who talks to commoners as subjects not equals. Their laugh is funny but empty. Their cocktail drinks are kerosine and diesel.
They look like mountaineers, bohemian able to talk cosmopolitan gibberish, they live not in the mountains for the jungle of free spirit lives within their convoluted submission to urban living. They have the promise of wild freedom from greed to expanding urbanization. Not hippies but hipsters -if they party its a blast from the past. Retroactive people of earth.
Given perception of the two opposing equals, fighting a habitat that is not solely theirs but of poison ivy. It is not far for both sides to be offensive. But who decide of who is taking fair or who is talking foul? The supreme court- even its king-kong is being put on trial. Needless to say, Goliath was tumble down by David. Before humiliation comes forth to Goliath -because it would be impossible for a tall giant to bend then it should make a deal with David for humility comes the grace of sustainable peace. Plus is less expensive. I suggest not only to stop cutting trees but rather burn the contract.
At the end of the day, love for mother -poison ivy- is like a offering of peace garlands. Not cement made platforms or steel dildos. For the Jungle avengers it must also respect the business of Jungle invaders in the city of Gods. For mutual respect is a must. Like pirates have a code of conduct. So I suggest don’t overdo the overrated protest because some decent workers bringing food to their families are not so concerned about your attention deficits.
How to end this thought is difficult, for I myself is not choosing sides, either or. I choose Peace and no bloodshed must come forth- We are not in Syria. But I believe that love must shower upon both sides not due to opulence of resources but of propriety.
The ways and means will justify the cause of it all.
Happy Day! Lets jungle all the way.
