“We have to wear Masks or it will be Mad Maxx” - Response to a Nihilist November 2020
In response to your comment about Mad Maxx, I don't think we're gonna see mad max level of chaos, but I do think humanity has got a LOT of work to do. I'm not against things being sustainable, but not some central planner's version of sustainability which involves total control of humanity. I think, given all the information, we'd move towards sustainability anyways. Consider this.
Why is beef raised in Canada shipped overseas while our grocery stores ship in beef from overseas? How much fuel does the tanker that shipped it consume?
Same question for natural resources, Why are raw materials sent somewhere else to be processed, only to be sent back here.
Does sustainability mean you can't eat meat anymore? does it mean you have to eat bugs or tank meat grown in a lab? or does it mean we build ourselves a bio-regional supply chain? What's more effective?
What kind of system allows the most freedom and respects the people in the way they want to be respected? What is the difference between a Life-affirming institution and a life-denying institution? these are the questions I'm asking.
Does sustainability mean all resources are cataloged and controlled by a central authority? Who told the WEF folks they could manage natural resources.
Does sustainability mean I need a digital identity that follows me everywhere i go? What about privacy?
There's an old saying. Cui Bono "to whom is it a benefit?" Not you, not I, we're being fleeced.
Let me put on my tin-foil hat again...
Let's talk about climate change. We're told it's mostly man-made global warming, but what is a solar cycle? what impact does the sun have on the weather? Do the climate models reflect this, or do they omit this?
Hopefully, this gives you some perspective, when I'm told to trust something like "THE SCIENCE", I'm automatically skeptical. Science is a methodology of discovering what is true, not a god with High-priests to be worshipped without question. but like I said before... under the guise of one thing, but really it's something else.
