In a culture of life:
We would cooperate with other nations to mitigate the effects of climate change, in order to protect our descendants from its consequences.
We would not factory farm other animals for food.
We would protect the integrity of Earth’s waterways, because water is life.
We would beg for the forgiveness we clearly do not deserve, for the crimes of colonizers against indigenous peoples.
We would not separate migrant children from their parents, nor would migrant children die in government custody from undetected infections.
Law enforcement officers would serve and protect people of color, not kill them.
LGBTQ people would live openly and safely, without fear of discrimination.
Women would have the unquestioned right to make their own reproductive health care decisions.
Creating a culture of life is a worthy goal. But our capitalist culture of white male supremacy is no culture of life.
