mobilize the earth

One of the challenges that we have in America is that America is a society based on conquest, not on survival. It is a society, by and large, based on the concept that there is always a West, always a frontier. There will always be someplace to go. We don’t necessarily have to give thanks for where we are because we’re moving. That’s what has happened in this America, is this conceptual framework—there is always going to be someplace we can go or something else we can buy….

You cannot make an argument to me that the United States is sustainable, because there is no way that a society that causes so much extinction—an industrial society that caused the extinction of over two thousand nations of indigenous people—is sustainable…. A society that causes so much extinction is not a society that is nourishing.

“The mopping up of Zeon remnants on Earth continued for a few years, and restoring public order in space had to be postponed.

The Federation Forces used mobile suits confiscated from Zeon to equip their own forces, because it was more economical than producing more GM units to replace those lost in the war.”
