Do a show about plastic with regard to recycling. I've learned that petroleum based plastic does not break down - that is, the molecular structure lasts forever, which is longer than nuclear waste, and until the planet gets eaten up by explosion or implosion of it - if that's its end. Recycling consists of labor, which is ok if they don't have to do it 8 hours a day 40 hrs a week (oppressive work day and week; let The Rich do a couple of hours at a job. Watch them suffer); then grinding it up - energy, machinery, and chemicals, - to make a couch or shoes, or more plastic bags and packaging!
Packaging is a function of capitalism.
Whether a person who lives near or far from water is of no matter. The plastic and our garbage finds its way into water as well as onto land.
Do a show about that we need to end waste. Find who's working to get that done. Build that idea among us.
Do a show - I think you have, but do it again - about work - jobs - being near home - not necessarily that isolated arrangement of work at a computer from home, but shops, small factories, offices, farms etc. near home.
Emphasize her suggestions to cut back on use. All the crap that people buy to make them 20 years old again and strong, and looking like some idolized figure, and to smell just TERrible from these horrible 'perfumes', the result of moving from whale oil to petroleum based scents - all smell the same, which is why 30 years ago they were advertised as all taking on their smell from one's individual body - the absolute lie - We're SO colonized!!! so subject to advertising!!!
