Honestly kimmio, I thought you being smarter than falling for this dumm argumentation. You seem to be falling for any article lately that has the word “ fascism” in it.Something to think about and consider carefully:
“Secondly, the Extinction Rebellion group has certain currents of ‘eco-fascism’ running through it. Eco-facism isn’t a coherent ideology in the same way that say, conservatism is, but it loosely finds its expressions in high concerns for the environment, coupled with claims to land and heritage, and sometimes by excluding ‘others’ on the grounds of their illegitimate claims to land. For example, Paul Kingsnorth, a writer and climate activist, has wholeheartedly supported the movement, and Kingsnorth’s other writings display a worrying form of eco-fascism. A ‘pure moment’ before the arrival of the other, industry and capitalism. For him, and certainly many others in the movement, migration itself is part of the climate problem; people should stay where they have claims to land and
“Thirdly, the movement has relied on the willingness of protestors to be arrested. It has encouraged protestors to be prepared to be taken to prison, even for long periods of time, without acknowledging the structural racism of the police and the institutional racism of the prison system. A black protestor and a white protestor would no doubt fare differently if arrested.”...
“Take as a point of contrast Greta Thurnburg’s protests. She has encouraged everyone, and particularly all school students, to march against climate change. Indeed, there may be an issue in how POC children would be policed in contrast to white children, but notice the difference between Thurnburg and Extinction Rebellion: she’s called everyone to arms, not just some people who read a newspaper.”
Could you please leave you fascism theme in the politics threads i.e. you own fascism threads. I am aware you see fascism everywhere and everyone here knows that by now as well. That doesn't mean you have to mention it in every thread there is.I guess I’ll just accept being called dumb. Here’s another dumb article. Published in the oldest magazine in the US (I’m sure they have made editorial mistakes at some point like every single newspaper ever...but they are not a new radical fly by night publication...they have some credibility.)
Mine was given to me. I won’t buy a new one.
It still works.Orchard buys quality pre-owned devices and sells them all over Canada to quality human beings, like you.The iPhone environmental impact is especially important if discarded before its time is up. But what happens to your electronics when you're done with them?www.getorchard.com
Thanks for that. I like how he stood his ground. I don’t know the details about the thought of closing down Heathrow with drones, but I would agree that that would put people at risk and annoy people more than cause sympathy. Its a fine line. The terrorists that came out of the student movement in Germany in the sixties/ seventies went as far as abducting and killing politicians. Certainly not the way to start a mass movement. But- he is stressing that Extinction Rebellion is committed to non-violence , being fully aware that even non- violence will result in violence as reaction from the existing” structures” .
