So these fuckers.
Anyone's thoughts on the issue? Now I understand that climate change is a thing, 200 species go extinct every week, we use too many fossil fuels, ice caps are melting, plastics a fetishistic bitch etc etc
But anyone else think the vast majority of those involved haven't the slightest clue what they're doing?
I'm currently living in a large area of regenerative, permanent culture, edible woodlands. It's owned by a vegan couple, their son went to the extinction rebellion
When asked why
"I didn't really understand, but my samba band was going so I did too"
And I wanted to beat him.
I've been pressing the woman as to why she goes to the extinction rebellion meetings and she said "I go for the group, there's a lot of solidarity, it feels like a movement, we're making a difference" which to me just sounds like self congratulatory group think, a bunch of people patting each other on the back for agreeing. She also goes to a regenerative culture group.. and last time she went I asked how it was and she said "it was amazing, we really unburdened and put things in perspective, it's for people who get depressed about the world to come together, we had a group.. (aha ah fucking hell lol).. we had a group cry at the end"
Now I know that's not what it's all about, bit I wonder just how many members are like this. I told her I voted ukip (yeah yeah take the piss guys) and she said "that's awful! Are you some kind of fascist!" And I said "well they're going to ban plastic bags" and she walked away lmao.
But when you consider who is funding this movement, and the apparent naivety of many of the members, does it not begin to feel slightly cultish? Playing on people's morals and hearts who don't really understand what's happening and basically radicalising otherwise nice people to achieve a far different goal?
Anyone's thoughts on this?
(I'm only posting as.. well there's a group of 20 coming to the land today, they arrived at 2:30.. so I'm hiding in my caravan out in the "wilderness" and have asked to be left the hell alone.. I'll get into an argument otherwise)
Also just want to add
I trapped, butchered and ate a rabbit yesterday as a private protest (brazed rabbit! Was luuuuuurvly, spent the whole night worried I'd get tularemia, didn't really do the checks)
(Bet I get ignored)
