Common sense tells you that you can't change, that it will make you vulnerable. I'll use a example from Sweden, our commonly owned properties, 'Allmännyttan' as we call it, housing. Once though of as a common right, your right to somewhere to live, a shelter, now becoming a source of 'profits', the same idea that steers private interests. The idea that built it was that it was enough with it turning around, taking care of itself. But that isn't the way your game is structured, is it? It came at around the same time as the Russian revolution, which then created a somewhat unique dialogue between the working classes in Sweden and the established wealth. A sort of constant consensus dialogue, that amongst other things brought with it this idea.
that you have a right to not being used for generating profits by your need for shelter. But 'common sense' tells you that this isn't how the game works, so today we've lost it. This 'peoples movement', coming from a stark inequality doesn't exist any more. Instead we find a population directed to profits, just as with yours.
'common sense' is a major part of why you can't change. And we can connect it to what Douglas Adams wrote about too.
" The Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service of the EU found that burning forests released 1.3 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide last month, mostly in North America and Siberia. This was the highest since the organisation began measurements in 2003.
After a July record of 1258.8 megatonnes the previous month, scientists are concerned that areas with dense vegetation are becoming a source rather than a sink of greenhouse gases.
The increased flammability was evident across swathes of the northern hemisphere. Russia, which is home to the world’s biggest forest, was by far the worst affected as infernos in the taiga forests of Siberia pumped 970 megatonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere between June and August – more than all the forests in the rest of the world put together. "
Weird formulation, isn't it " more than all the forests in the rest of the world put together. " but it's about breathing, forests do it too. But those forests I presume them to refer to doesn't burn, yet.
The simple truth, and I do like it simple, is that you won't get out of any of your, or ours, disasters if you insist on it becoming 'profitable'. It's not about profits any longer, it's about survival. But you can't turn, you're stuck inside your beliefs, your values, your idea of 'morals', your ideals and your profits. And the game you play do not leave you any room to change in.
" The coastal US north-east is one of the fastest warming areas in the northern hemisphere, having heated up rapidly by 2C (3.6F) already over the past century due in part to the soaring temperature of the nearby Atlantic Ocean, new research has found."
and Sweden and as I saw, Australia, also there, since 1850.
You could also think of it in terms of 'dual circulations". One face out, another face in.
" In addition, the recent US-China trade war has heightened Chinese concerns about energy security as the country imports 70% of its oil and 40% of its gas. And while China has gone all out on renewables, especially solar and wind, it cannot expand those sources fast enough to meet expected demand. "
One about dreams, the other about necessity. Like any other country you ever will look at. I'm telling you, to found a 'green future' on rare earths sheer stupidity. We do need to change it, our energy sources in a decade or maybe less, but we also need those nuclear power plants to gain even a glimmer of a chance. And your game works against it. It's about a ever rising GDP, fiercer competition for assets, profits and greed.
" Mainland China has the greatest number of coal-fired power stations of any nation in the world. As of 2021, there were 1,082 operational coal power plants in the country. This was nearly four times the number of such power stations in India, which ranked second. China accounts for over 50 percent of the total global coal electricity generation. "
a play for the galleries. From the interpretation to the guy speaking. It's about 'the right stuff' leading you, the herd. Not about your rights, or democracy, but about leaderships. You won't get out of this either.
Ironically funny, still correct. But I don't think of it as a 'new way'. It's about applied force, and has been used over the ages.
" “Sanctions are the US new way of war with the nations of the world,” President Ebrahim Raisi told the UN general assembly in a pre-recorded address from Tehran. Raisi, who is himself under US sanctions over alleged human rights abuses, said sanctions “were crimes against humanity during the coronavirus pandemic” "
Once again, 'moral indignation' but not about rights.
