At least a lot more respectful than your hero leaders handling of the dead



Here is a memorial of the lives lost due to Holodomor lives lost due to comrade Stalin and comrade Lenin brutalization of the Ukrainian people

Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan is not part of the teachers’ unions.

It's a good thing too or the Cosa Nostra would take it over with that much money spilling out of the cornucopia.

As usual you have been proven wrong.

Teamsters have over $1.5 billion invested in private equity.

I'll start by saying i am not making light of this situation but pointing out what should be the obvious reality.... that the condition of the water in places like Flint Michigan is not at all the problem but one of a million symptoms of taking what was pristine wilderness a mear 5 generations ago and paving it over and building cities and factories where trees and rich soil and wild men and animals once were... as nature provided and intended it for..... Industrialization and it's co-infection, consumerism , is a disease and instead of treating it as such it is worshipped like a gift from the gods..... and fickle gods they are seeing as how the cities and factories and pavement are crumbling now that the usefullness of it's exploitation is coming to an end...... but the sickness continues on....

You are a product of your culture and environment. You may be forgiven if you don't understand what he said.

He said he wished his forefathers wouldn't have moved to the new world and destroyed the forests in the name of progress.

Do I get an A Cliffy?

We are are both from a culture connected to the soil and we're given the opportunity to be stewards of the same soil in Canada.

What responsibility was bestowed to your culture?

No. He is lamenting the industrial revolution and its complete disconnect from the real, natural world.

Capitalism and colonialism were, together, the most brutal outcome. Nothing much has changed except the chains have come off because the enslaved don't need them any more. They have self domesticated.

That's right, Wally. You are so domesticated, you believe everything your slave masters tell you to believe.

Corporate America today! Holy...Holy...Holy...Moly...MONEY! Equates slavery of the mind! SAD! Major crash...deliver us!



Everyone so desperately wants to conform into the designed system-matrix. Predictable Human Programming for self imprisonment.

Why Catastrophic Climate Change is Probably Inevitable Now

How Capitalism Torched the Planet by Imploding Into Fascism


Sometimes, when I write scary essays, I encourage you not to read them. This one’s different. It’s going to be brutal, scary, jarring, and alarming. But if you want my thoughts on the future, then read away.
It strikes me that the planet’s fate is now probably sealed. We have just a decade in which to control climate change — or goodbye, an unknown level of catastrophic, inescapable, runaway warming is inevitable. The reality is: we’re probably not going to make it. It’s highly dubious at this juncture that humanity is going to win the fight against climate change.
Yet that is for a very unexpected — yet perfectly predictable — reason: the sudden explosion in global fascism — which in turn is a consequence of capitalism having failed as a model of global order. If, when, Brazil elects a neo-fascist who plans to raze and sell off the Amazon — the world’s lungs — then how do you suppose the fight against warming will be won? It will be set back by decades — decades…we don’t have. America’s newest Supreme Court justice is already striking down environmental laws — in his first few days in office — but he will be on the bench for life…beside a President who hasn’t just decimated the EPA, but stacked it with the kind of delusional simpletons who think global warming is a hoax. Again, the world is set by back by decades…it doesn’t have. Do you see my point yet? Let me make it razor sharp.
My friends, catastrophic climate change is not a problem for fascists — it is a solution. History’s most perfect, lethal, and efficient one means of genocide, ever, period. Who needs to build a camp or a gas chamber when the flood and hurricane will do the dirty work for free? Please don’t mistake this for conspiracism: climate change accords perfectly with the foundational fascist belief that only the strong should survive, and the weak — the dirty, the impure, the foul — should perish. That is why neo-fascists do not lift a finger to stop climate change — but do everything they can to in fact accelerate it, and prevent every effort to reverse or mitigate it.
