Dear Animal Rights and Environmental Activists:
This is an invitation for you to nominate your own Top-5 21st-Century
Criminals-against-Nature-and-Humanity for the AR/GW
Time-Capsule-of-HOPE-2060 (see article below), to outline their crime(s),
and speak out for the victims who cannot speak for themselves.
Other than the obvious futuristic perspective, this will serve as a
warning to contemporary leaders to act ethically, conscientiously,
responsibly and altruistically, at risk of being condemned for all time,
since more time-capsules can be launched at a moment's notice with new names
engraved in the brass plaques within, accompanied by outlines of their new
This is also an invitation for you to nominate you own Top-5 21st-Century
Activists-of-Conscience-and-Compassion. One of the best things we can do for
future generations is to set an example for them with our own actions today.
For North America , there will be one time-capsule for every American
state and Canadian province. Each will be launched into the future in its
own time, though all will be opened on New Year's Eve 2059 AD. The first one
will be launched from Alberta, Canada , in early July 2008, in which Alberta
Premier Ed Stelmach will be guaranteed a top position amongst the villains.
The one to be launched from Ontario will certainly include the name of
Fisheries Minister Loyola Hearn, as well as Prime Minister Stephen Harper on
whose desk the bucks (of both the tar sands and the seal massacre) should
stop. And if it could contain premiers, ministers and prime ministers, why
not governors, senators and presidents? And let's not forget the infamous
and despised wildlife exterminator Anthony DeNicola who no doubt will top
many lists in many states.
All time-capsules will contain universal as well as local material. One
universal item will be a brass plaque on which the names of the Top-100
21st-Century Criminals-against-Nature-and-Humanity will be engraved on one
side, and the names of the Top-100 21st-Century
Activists-of-Conscience-and-Compassion on the other.
These Top 100 heroes and villains will be selected according to the
cumulative totals of the nominations on each received by HOPE by the time a
certain Time Capsule is launched. As the nominations stream in, the names
may change from plaque to plaque, but the more nominations in total, the
more statistically representative of the entire Animal Rights and
Environmental movements the lists will be. Where nominating politicians are
concerned, partisanship should be avoided, and issues should be the main
If you wish to vent your anger/frustration/disapproval constructively,
and make these criminals face the ultimate justice of going down stinking in
history, this is it!
If you wish your nominations to be counted for the first
Time-Capsule-2060, please email them to the following three email addresses
at your earliest convenience:
Note: When you vote in a political election, you vote for the next 4
years at most. This Time-Capsule-2060 nomination vote will be good for the
next half-century at least.
