I am deeply afraid of Extinction Rebellion activism. I feel that these people are far worse than wrong, and far worse than insane. Why do I say “these people” when it is precisely their personhood that they have surrendered, in order to become part of a mass anti-mind?
Are they…people? Look at them, and tell me what you think.
Laughter is a funny thing. I laughed out loud watching this video. It gave me back, temporarily, a sense that sanity will triumph over insanity. But will it?
The “end of the world” is already here, in the form of the end of sanity as a presumptive mode of communication, in all people other than those diagnosed and medically treated as insane.
It is no longer even advantageous to not be insane.
Insanity, (fanatical, radical progressive PC) appearing now as a mass expression, is a new form of status. The more accusatory (the mark of the insane) you can be, the higher your status.
Mind you–these are the people who routinely say we must invoke the 25th amendment to remove Donald Trump as President on grounds he is not sane, and narcissistic.
I just heard a story about a young couple in love. She was a Climate Davidian, as my friend Paul Bell calls them; He was, as he fatefully told her, “agnostic.” Though she loved him, she ended the relationship, right there and then, when he told her he was agnostic. That means undecided, and prepared to read.
We live in the era of the bloodless guillotine. They hang over ever encounter, chat room– every dinner table, every bed.
But remember what did Robespierre in; It was when they started laughing at him.
