Who Will Cut Down The Second To Last Tree?

Sunday Thoughts 

By Ange Fonce

We now know from archaeological and environmental research that Easter Island was once the home to a thriving community and thousands of people living good lives.

Yet one by one though the trees on this isolated island were cut down. 

They were cut down for fuel or to make tools or boats.

And radically changed the ecology of the Island and the sea around it.

And finally the last tree was gone and the population went extinct.

Yet though the question is not really about the last tree. 

It is about the other trees before it and especially the second to last tree.

With two you can create something... with one... what can you create on your own?

When someone cut the second to last tree down how did the rest of the community respond? 

Were they afraid to speak up? 

Was it made clear that the social and environmental costs of cutting down a tree were severe... so severe that no one would even contemplate cutting down more trees let alone the last tree?

And maybe they could have started this cultural norm with the third to last tree and much better for all even sooner.

Culture is the most powerful tool we have to change behavior. 

All around us we see people selfishly taking from the social common good. 

Eroding our standards and values by chopping down trees both real and metaphorical that we all depend on.

What will you say and do the next time someone comes with an axe?

Will you stand for what is best and the greatest benefit to all?

Or selfishly race to the bottom like everyone else?

Have you any thoughts or comments you would like to share with me on what I have written?

I would love to hear from you.

Thank you and may you enjoy a Loving... Prosperous and Dynamic day!

Yours Sincerely
