Jason Mraz Wants To Stop Saving The World And Create A New One

mrazJason Mraz has keyed another blog entry on his Freshness Factor Five Thousand blog — the artist’s tagged “Conversation Station” — and with this one, he wonders aloud whether saving the world is actually worth it. Would we, perhaps, be better off just creating a new one? He writes,

“Maybe we should stop trying to save the world. After all, the world I grew up in is soiled with bigotry and homophobia, war upon war, pollution, hunger and poverty. Who wants to save that? Some people do. Some people fear change. And they will fight others and pollute the earth in order to not have to change, to cling to what they’re used to. ”

“What if instead of saving the world – we say we are creating a new one? Last years rally for change in the Obama campaign was a preview of what we’re capable of. By simply trying on new ideas and being okay with letting go of old routines, we can cause an amazing shift on this planet.”

Mraz then goes on to say that we should let go of things we cling to that prevent us from moving forward. Simplifying our lives, while giving those random things away to those less fortunate, recycling, etc. He’s also been inspired by the Humanifesto over at The Superforest. It’s main theme is that good manners are the key to saving the planet. Be kind to others, have that spread, and the world will naturally right itself. It’s a nice, short read.

Also — the singer’s new solar array construction is making progress. Just as we would be (if we had the cash), the guy is totally psyched to tap into the sun. Check out his full entry here.
