#150 fertilizers

I hear that farmers in some parts of England are using human wastes as fertilizers for their crops.

Today, are farmers in developed countries resort to using human faeces or wastes to fertilize? By using such, they are producing organic foods.

In many Asian less developed countries, farmers used human faeces in producing vegetables for consumption. Vegetables taste sweeter and give better yield apparently.

As a country progresses, only then fertilizers were used. However with the high inflation and affordability, well…man is returning to the primitive but sensible ways of living.

#149 customers

Today, everything and everyone are pegged to the dollar!

Everyone is treated as customers: schools, hospitals…

Are schools not centers or institutions of learning? Customers mean you have to pay and pay! Where are the state services providing for citizens? Will there come a time when education is so expensive that parents cannot afford to educate their child/children? Will this word ‘student’ lost in the vocabulary?

Will a day come when you’re sick, and if you can’t pay, you cannot receive treatment? The ‘customers’ sound palatable, on second thought, this is derogative term for one who is sick and needing the necessary treatment, attention and care. Will there come a time when tender-loving-care is also up for sale? Where is the term ‘patient’?

Then why are citizens made to pay annual income tax? What is income tax for? For building infrastructures; salaries for governing leaders…

Yesteryears there were lots provided through income tax for the citizens…today one has to pay-and-pay!

Has man degenerated or reduced to dollars-and-cents? Just another digit?

I can imagine a day will come when man eats man; man killing man; man violating one another’s right to life; man destroying man; — in the name of money!

Where is humanity?
