Dear Reader,


*I send you herewith one of my Letters of an Autonomous Thinker. Maybe I

will do that once more. When you want to receive once or twice a month my

Letters, please send an email with the subject subscribe to *** <>*.*


*Live Earth is not the way*, the 89th Letter of an Autonomous Thinker.



Superficially Al Gore activated hundreds of thousands people for Live Earth.


But was Al Gore, who uses more energy than a single Chinese village, also

saving the earth when he was vice-president?


Of course not and he still does not want to save the earth.


Only one week after Live Earth, Gore gave his guests Chilean sea bass (the

Patagonian toothfish), one of the world's most threatened fish species.

High-placed members of the American establishment are never green..

The American elite (including Al Gore) enriches itself shamelessly and it

perceives that some masspeople do not agree with the way the world is

organised. It cannot be justified that a few people are very rich, a few

more have a decent life and the majority is living on the edge of existence.

And a billion or more have to live on next to nothing.


*The elite wants to maintain its advantageous position. Opposition against

its privileges and its surplus of power should be minimised. *




Therefore Al Gore brings a plausible idea forward that diverts masspeople

from more important subjects as the distribution of wealth, the creation of

one world in which all people have the same status or the disappearance of

powerful groups that cause much of the world's misery.




*Be aware when people with private jets, houses like castles and an

excessive spending drift suddenly start to propagate a Green Earth. *


These well-to-do people urge masspeople to buy energy-consuming products,

sabotage production of low-energy cars or wage wars in Iraq that costs a lot

of energy (and the lives of many masspeople).




Elitepeople only use their power to prevent that masspeople create a better





*The energy and CO2 problems are caused by the elitist system by which we

are ruled.* The elite gets much of their money by selling masspeople

products that have to be renewed and replaced. Their love of money, the idea

that money rules the world, is in contradiction to the idea of a Live Earth.

The concentration of power in the hands of a small elite is the basic reason

why our earth is dying.


*The Dying Earth is the direct consequence of wrong power relations. *


People who possess most power should stand central in any activity of

masspeople. Only when power relations change, Live Earth can exist.


The greatest benefactors of a Dying Earth are elitepeople like Al Gore..




You should fight for different power relations. Then green energy can become

a focus-point in the decision-making process. But the elite refuses to turn

green. It produces still more energy  for still more money in their pockets.

Do you think that Gore wants to change that with the help of music? Don't

make me laugh.



*Al Gore should not be trusted*, he is one of the elitepersons that rule the

world. All his activities are guided by the golden elitist rule that its

Power, Privileges and Prosperity must be protected and expanded regardless

what happens to masspeople or to the Earth.




*Concentrate on power relations and on people who possess a surplus of power

because Live Earth will remain an illusion when power relations do not

change. *




Yours truly, Joost van Steenis
