Re: Why Greta Thunberg Should Be Time’s Person of the Year

Kind of a fun story about how the big energy companies are the only ones who can save us. Paid for by the big energy companies of course.

Re: Why Greta Thunberg Should Be Time’s Person of the Year

The spread of stories about arson are being pushed by paid AI. You can probably guess who is behind them. Pretty funny Nemo. The point is actually that when people set fires, purposefully and accidentally, as they did in Australia, Cali, and other fires, climate change takes a manageable fire and m...

Lighten up. I know ... but today it's a bit hard. Read this, and look at the photos, as though you're reading about the countryside you grew up in and you might see why. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-01-06/dead-animals-bushfire-biosecurity-emergency/11843428?fbclid=IwAR1Z5byiQrR40GGO8xYchC_rtTRM...

Re: Why Greta Thunberg Should Be Time’s Person of the Year

LOL. And even if your worst case scenario comes about, there is nothing that would suggest that anyone should do anything different. We still have to try and fix the dam, even if its likely to break, because there is no other choice. If its going to break, it will take everything with it. There won...

Re: Why Greta Thunberg Should Be Time’s Person of the Year

I'm an optimist so I am hoping for maximum social dislocation. I think we need more chaos in the short term. Then maybe future generations can survive. The " Save the Planet. Kill yourself. " approach. I don't think the existing power structures that destroyed the world can fix it. Maybe we need so...

Re: Why Greta Thunberg Should Be Time’s Person of the Year

That is the big question now. Is it better to let it burn down as quickly as possible so that there is a sliver of ecological capacity left in the planet to rebuild or simply hold on as long as possible until our inevitable demise. I'm an optimist so I am hoping for maximum social dislocation. I thi...

Re: Why Greta Thunberg Should Be Time’s Person of the Year

It's interesting that the working class can't take down the oligarchs yet, but they can delegitimize the liberal class. Once McCarthyism had purged the socialists from academia those remaining were given a choice. Become a mouthpiece for the powerful or be ostracized. They stopped speaking truth to...

Re: Sogyal, etc. split from THE SELF-ARISEN VIDYA TANTRA thread

Many assholes were able to give pointing out instructions. Once you have them all conceptuality is a valueless pile of shit. Your concepts die with your body. Sucks if your teacher is such an asshole. The mental gymnastics justifying them will be difficult. Perhaps you will be shunned. What does it ...

Re: Why Greta Thunberg Should Be Time’s Person of the Year

What a dense and interesting talk. Personally I think capitalism is a Gyalpo now. One of the demons of materialism that Padmasambhava warned would possess at least half of the population. For decades some of my employers murdered anyone who spoke against the demon in dozens of countries. In 1599 it...

Re: Why Greta Thunberg Should Be Time’s Person of the Year

When it comes to illness treating symptoms will not cure the disease. Lets look at 5 of the world's worst problems and find the root cause. 1. Weapons manufacturers deliberately starting conflict to sell wares. 2. Polluters destroying the climate to continue to make obscene profits while paying for ...

Re: Feeling lack of community, advice?

I grew up in a community. Knew all my neighbors. That was when we were well off though. I noticed the working class had already lost that when I was a kid as our situation deteriorated. They only looked out for themselves. That mercenary nature built out of necessity has now become almost universal....

Tk this documentary is excellent about how corporations transcended regulation and began devouring the natural world like a cancer. Limited liability is criminal.

Re: Why Greta Thunberg Should Be Time’s Person of the Year

I don't really have anything against people born in certain years. But a certain demographic seems to love a narrative where they are always the hero of the story. In this particular case they could not be more wrong. I think they may still have enough in them that they could wake up from this insan...

I curse you to live long enough to remember that remark during the resource wars. It will taste like the ash raining from the sky. Shame is the power of Yamantaka. It's so easy when you drink the blood of the demon to tell yourself you are doing nothing wrong. That anyone in your position would make...

I'm having a laugh but also telling the truth. Half kidding. The Greatest generation had their own name for Boomers. The ME generation. They thought they were profondly selfish and self absorbed. Turned out they were right. If patting yourself on the back and telling yourself how wonderful you are c...

OK Boomer.

Kids "Hey, you guys knowingly destroyed the ecosystem of the entire planet. Do you at least feel bad about cursing us all to live in the hellscape you created because fixing it was mildly inconvenient?"

Boomers "Saying this is an actual hate crime."
