Some stupid terms :
Far Right, the correct term is facist and it just suits the establishment to use far right as it somehow seems less but it really isn’t and the establishment are using the actions of small pockets of facists to keep their own elitism intact and to take away our rights bit by bit.
Far Left, this is also used by the establishment but in this case it is to put fear into people because they immediately begin thinking of communism under Russia and Mao and all that Hollywood has told them. Getting people to think this suits the ruling class because what they are truly afraid of is an equal society which is what ‘Left’ parties want.
Even the terms Right and Left aren’t helpful. Tradition/Religion has always had the good on the right and the bad on the left. The repentant thief was to the right of Jesus on the cross, being a “Citeog”, left handed person was frowned on in school, and society, for such a long time, “bet out of” people even.
Language is powerful, everyday language is powerful. We should be really conscious of the words we use but we aren’t.
I don’t like calling my politics “left”, as in not “right”, all that is “left” after the greedy have taken most but that seems the only word for it.
I want an equitable society. I want the dignity of all people, of all living flora and fauna and the planet at the core of every decision. Why are we not taught that? Why are we not taught to stop and think about how our decisions might impact on others and the planet? Why is that not a core question in all decision making policies? If it was we wouldn’t be in the dreadful mess we are in, the mess this egocentric society has created.
Less emphasis on greed and competition and more on sharing and cooperation is needed now, it was always needed but it is at a critical point now. Being happy with enough so others don’t have to suffer for one person’s more is what we should have because we live in, and are part of, an ecosystem. Presently the only term for the politics that thinks in ecosystem terms rather than egocentric terms is ‘left’ it seems, so I am ‘left, with that.
It is DISGUSTING, it is GREEDY and ENTITLED. He is in no way assisting science with this like he is pretending, it is just a billionaire rushing to do something before another billionaire does it. THERE SHOULD BE NO BILLIONAIRES There is no reason to have any. Most of their wealth should be seized and redistributed. And the bullshit of he earned it, it is his, should be analysed, how many people were stepped on for him to get where he is? All the human and environmental cost of his spending should also be analysed and he should be taxed for it. Most of the human contribution to this climate crisis has been by a tiny percentage of this world’s population and they should be made change their ways first and foremost before the rest of us are guilttripped about our carbon footprint which was a term invented by the petroleum industry to push it back on the consumer. If the goods and services were made in an ethical and environmentally safe way in the first place then the consumer would not have to be fretting over the plastic content in their shopping trolley because it wouldn’t be there in the first place. If you have billions, if you have millions, if you have hundreds of thousands, you should be using it to help the world not adding to the destruction of it with your mindless consumption that you think you’re entitled to because you are RICH and therefore ENTITLED. What complete and utter BULLSHIT! The Planet is Dying! Millions of people are in warzones, living under oppression, dying of hunger. Species are going extinct at a rapid rate. Our seas, rivers and lakes are polluted. Our soil is overworked and depleted of nutrients. We are in the middle of a biodiversity and climate crisis. We are where we are because of a few selfish pricks wanting to piss their money against the wind for a laugh and short spurts of adrenaline while ordinary people are trying their best to do the right thing. Imagine having all the money in the world and thinking I’m off to space before the other rich guys get to and sending videos down to us all telling us our dying planet is beautiful and when he was a boy he used to dream. You know what should go extinct! BILLIONAIRES!
