I never used to notice how much binge drinking, getting wasted, doing stupid shit while wasted, and making self-destructive decisions are glorified in both our pop and alternative culture media. In an increasingly destabilizing world – politically, socially and environmentally – the last thing we should be doing is losing our global awareness in favor of senseless games of chicken with our own bodies.
Our mission is to stay aware and alert, to better our minds and strengthen our bodies, to make choices that will benefit humanity now and in future generations.
There is no glory or dark stoicism in using our personal bullshit as an excuse to piss away time, health and energy when our lives, right now, are the only thing standing between history and World War III, catastrophic climate change, global food, water and energy shortages, and the rise of new technologically and nuclear-powered dictatorships. Enough.
