A combination of a cohort of disaffected youth, communities that feel they have been left behind and a social and political culture where certain issues can’t be openly discussed because of so called ‘sensitivities’ is a potent recipe for trouble.
Anyone who paints themselves as an ‘outsider’ while broadcasting on platforms that reach millions is taking everyone else for a mug. They’re allowed to do this because they provide a safety valve for people to rally around, under the illusion that they’re actually part of something more oppositional.
Recognising our place in nature means an awareness of the passing of the seasons and the changes that brings. It’s about the celebrations and rituals that mark the passing of the year from the winter solstice, Imbolc, the spring equinox, Beltane, through to the summer solstice and back via the autumn equinox.
When change comes rapidly and it feels like we’re being hit by one thing after another, it’s inevitable that we’re all going to suffer from some form of what can best be described as future shock. After the last few years, it really does feel like a lot of us are suffering from some degree of future shock.
The title of this piece is ‘We can’t go on like this’. We genuinely can’t if we want a just, sane and sustainable future for the whole of humanity. At some point, sooner rather than later, the grip that the global super rich have over us has to be broken, once and for all. Their transhumanist, techno-fascist dystopia has to be shown up for exactly what it is and utterly destroyed.
It feels that the environment movement is in grave danger of allowing itself to be used and abused in the name of imposing the ‘great reset’. A ‘reset’ that will subject the vast majority of the population to a very limited life while the elites who presume to rule over us continue to swan around flaunting their wealth.
