Less is More

In today’s world of digital destruction oops digital attractions less is more when it comes to grabbing the attention of anyone.

This summer break, kids are getting more attracted to devices. They hop from one to another, for example, X-Box to Watch some streaming to Phone. It’s not only to kids it applies to adults as well. Today if you see someone walking their dogs they are also preoccupied with their device and I am not sure what dogs would be thinking. There are exceptions as well.

Now, why I am saying less is more is because in today’s time… we have abundance but still fleeting for more. Here is how we can make Less as More!

Lower your wants.

A look at violence and conflict over Indigenous lands in nine Latin American countries

Threats are a part of everyday life for Indigenous leaders in Latin America. They are part of a growing wave of violence that has, in recent years, left a shocking number of bodies in its wake: between 2012 and 2020, 363 male and female activists from Indigenous communities were murdered.

“In all our reports, Indigenous people make up, on average, one third of the total number of murdered environmental defenders on a global scale, a tremendously high figure considering only 4% of the world’s population are Indigenous peoples,” says Marina Comandulli, a campaign officer for Global Witness, a human rights non-governmental organization.

The most critical situation is in Colombia, where 117 Indigenous people have been murdered in the aforementioned period – the highest figure on the South American continent.

Opinion | What a Dying Lake Says About the Future – The New York Times

Finally, we aren’t talking about a global problem. True, global climate change has contributed to reduced snowpack, which is one reason the Great Salt Lake has shrunk. But a large part of the problem is local water consumption; if that consumption could be curbed, Utah needn’t worry that its efforts would be negated by the Chinese or whatever.

So this should be easy: A threatened region should be accepting modest sacrifices, some barely more than inconveniences, to avert a disaster just around the corner. But it doesn’t seem to be happening.

And if we can’t save the Great Salt Lake, what chance do we have of saving the planet?
