“Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence” was a phrase made popular by Carl Sagan.
We need to modify this phrase to suit our current situation: “Extraordinary circumstances require extraordinary action”
Demonstrations alone are insufficient. We need a mass civil disobedience campaign. We need to shut down the operations of the government in order to gain their attention.
War and preparations for a war constitute some of our greatest problems. We need action to eliminate the enormous profits these activities enable.
Global warming and the changes it triggers are an even bigger problem. Continuing our obsession with fossil fuels guarantees our posterity will consist solely of cockroaches.
Capitalism, as it has devolved, is not solving these problems, it is exacerbating them.
If we lived in a true democracy, the police would be here to arrest the criminal politicians who are wrecking the planet.
