North Korea's threat over that Christmas tree is more than justified!

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Wednesday, December 22, 2010,
Fellow travellers, as you well know I abhor violence. But I have to admit that in some cases it is justified. Here is a case in point: That cruel capitalist nation South Korea has decided to provoke atheist, communist North Korea by lighting up a giant Christmas tree near the border.

As one who is regularly driven to nausea by the orgy of greed and consumerism that is Christmas in Australia, I certainly know where my fellow travellers in Pyongyang are coming from.

Not only is this a case of re...

The Victorian election, the Greens and the fate of the planet

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Monday, November 29, 2010,
Fellow travellers, I am deeply disturbed by the election result in Victoria. The Liberals seem to have won! And as Bob Brown said it was also the Liberal Party's fault that the Greens didn't win a seat. We would have had several now if not for Ted Baillieu's appallingly unprincipled decision.

Of course, evil capitalists and nature rapers will be rubbing their clammy hands with glee. It's a truly distressing outcome for human and non-human Victorians, as well as for the environment globally.

Volcanic Venus shows lava love to sassy sisters who stamped out strip clubs!

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Saturday, April 17, 2010,
Fellow travellers, as we all know, Gaia works in mysterious ways, so it is sometimes difficult to discern what She is trying to communicate to us. (Well, actually it's not that difficult for advanced souls like myself and my feisty feline fellow traveller Jocelyn to know. It's just a challenge for you and your friends. But don't worry, when that is the case we are happy to translate for you.)

But sometimes Gaia sends us a message that is completely unequivocal. This volcanic eruption in Icela...

Cycle of violence takes life of warrior wombat

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Tuesday, April 6, 2010,
Fellow travellers, Nature has struck another blow for justice against an evil enemy. But sadly, the brave wombat who did Gaia's righteous bidding has been felled with an axe wielded by an appalling white peenie-waver!

The wombat was totally justified in attacking the man, who was clearly violating his territory. (As we all know, wombats have deep spiritual connections with their land.) So the butchery that ensued was doubly appalling.

But of course the media - being so human-centric - always ta...

Academy Awards ambivalence

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Tuesday, March 9, 2010,
Fellow travellers, I am heartened to know that sassy sister Kathryn Bigelow won the Oscar for Best Director, and her film won Best Picture. This is certainly a highly empowering development for women all across the globe. And it's a nice coincidence that it just happened to occur at around the same time as International Women's Day.

But I am frankly appalled that she dedicated her win to "the women and men in the military who risk their lives on a daily basis in Iraq and Afghanistan. May they...

Are bikinis appropriate attire for a demo?

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Monday, November 2, 2009,
That appalling oil spill off the Western Australian coast has prompted a brave protest in which sassy sisters in bikinis covered themselves in oil and paraded in front of the Perth offices of the evil corporation responsible for the catastrophe.

While I heartily endorse the statement that these feisty feminist fellow travellers were making with their protest, did they really have to confirm the dominant paradigm of phallocentric lookism to make their point? While they weren't quite participati...

"Civilization" causes mutation

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Friday, October 30, 2009,
Just recently a clawed snake was discovered in China. Now there has been another serpent-themed warning from Gaia. This time it was a snake with two heads found in Illinois. Significantly, it was in a drawer full of junk.

If that's not a clear condemnation of the appalling wastefulness of Western conspicuous consumption, I don't know what is!
