  •  Why continue the lie (8+ / 0-)

    Capitalism and saving the climate simply cannot, at this stage, exist together. Stop being deluded it's simply too late to pretend otherwise. The fantasy that capitalism has the morality to let one of it's pillars, that of constant growth, will not create the change we need for today's reality.  We need to make this very choice, do we want growth or do we want a future? The two are exclusive at this point, the sooner we face this the better equipped we are going to be to get the momentum we need to stop the most catastrophic consequences. To pretend otherwise is dishonest.
    It's going to take some very authoritarian policies if we are going to give future generations a chance, it's that late in the game.What we need is a huge swing in public perception that it is worth denying the immediate gratification so that we leave a viable planet. Unlikely maybe but at least it's real.

      the choice is revolution or collaboration.  That's just reality.

        that those are the choices. The future is at stake. If you think collaboration with psychopaths is going to drive down consumption to resilient levels worldwide then spend your energy wiping their drool. While not revolutionary, it's gonna keep your hands busy.
