@tom I agree, though there’s two perspectives here: a) the eco-fascist rhetoric is idiotic and misses the obvious truth that it’s a small number of capitalist slum lords doing the damage... but b) on the other hand, from the perspective of the planet humans are a pathogen inducing a planetary fever response that will solve the planets problem if we let those few with money and power continue.

In my mind the key is to ensure we don’t validate A, but make better decisions without denying of B

The ef is too short sighted and just blames humanity in general, instead of trying to fix the prob

@self @tom that is literally what the villain in kingsmen said to justify causing everyone to start killing each other, what

@shooshy @tom Maybe you didn’t read all of what I said, or I didn’t state it clearly enough...
