Not My Job

In talking to many workers in Mississippi I find few care about the ramifications their work imposes on other people and workers. There is a consensus that following orders does not include thinking, morals, and ethics. In real communities everyone cares about the whole community not just their selfish beliefs. Lack of knowledge and research is due to not having a passion for what you do. People have been trained to slave for eight hours a day so they can buy entertainment for the free time.

Freedom, liberty, and rights come with responsibility to contribute to humanity not just donating. Feel good feeding the hungry does not show understanding the whole picture of humanity and progress of the humankind. It merely postpones the end effect of poor thinking based on emotions.

Recycled

“The U.S. generates more recyclable waste than any other country and China is the top customer for that scrap. China‚Äôs 25% tariff on U.S. scrap aluminum would make reusable metal from other countries more appealing. ”
==========
If a community can not recycle materials in less than 50 miles it is not saving anything. All recycling needs to be done locally to have energy savings and it be profitable. For example tupelo sends its water plastics over 100 miles away and charges the citizen on top of the effort it expects the citizen to do. When it much more feasible to use the recycled plastics processed into road sections that last 4 times longer than asphalt.

What is the problem? Could it be the good old boy club protecting old money interests? Or is it just lack of ability to change into a better way of doing things? Mississippi is last place in so many things because it refuses to change. This drives the next generation top students to other places.

Solar

“The number of homeowners installing solar panels fell last year, as top installers including Tesla abandoned aggressive sales practices that drove breakneck growth.”

Using solar energy still has more problems and costs than buying from the local utility. The aggressive marketing and tax breaks paint a rose tainted glasses view of reality. In real life solar needs more work to be cheaper and reliable to have a positive payback in its life time and provide energy when you need it. It is nowhere near the commercial payback of three years many businesses require to make an investment.
