Turtuga Blanku - No More (animated music video), Inspired by the film 'The Corporation'

While I was working on the lyrics of the song 'No More', I was inspired by a film called The Corporation (Mark Achbar, Jennifer Abbott and Joel Bakan). Several prominent people are featuring in this film, including Naom Chomsky, Milton Friedman, Vandana Shiva, Michael Moore and Naomi Klein.

(Vandana Shiva also participated in my 5Q-Interview-series: http://www.turtugablanku.com/5Q_inter...).

But the person in this film who inspired me most was Ray Anderson. As CEO of a large company and a visionary, from 1994 on he has challenged his own and other companies in the industrial world to stop being plunderers and start being sustainable. (Sadly, he recently passed away).

This song is about how the way our quite entangled and complicated global society is currently flying is resulting in depletion and pollution on great scale. The global society that we have developed is based upon the idea of abundance. People, companies, societies want more more more; more sales, more income, more possessions. However, the resources that are being used now, are not unlimited: oil, gas, fresh water, fresh air, rough materials... Also, our own health is not taken into account.

So, to create and maintain a normal, healthy and sustainable society, a couple of changes need to be made. Recycle, regenerate, renewable energy is what can keep us flying and prevent us from going down and hitting rock bottom. I believe that we can achieve this by changing the way our global society operates.

Big corporations are the ones who can and should play a major role in making about that change. And we, as their customers, should motivate them to take responsibility.
