climate change is serious, and we need to take serious, large-scale action to mitigate it.
when i say #bancars , this is shorthand. but: don't be stressing about your personal issues, *like that guardian article says*, addressing climate change is about society-wide choices. and as a society, we have chosen cars to transport us. this is not about you, or your job, or your kids.
reliance on personal automobiles needs to stop at the society level. this is not about you.
@t54r4n1 oh no, sorry I didn't mean it to come out that way. Seriously, the individual has so little influence it is laughable.
I mean Edward Bernays showed how easy it was to manipulate huge segments of the population using psychoanalysis and advertising. Milgram showed that most people can't think independent of authority.
It'll all collapse eventually. The planet will be fine once we go extinct.
I'm a big fan of passive passive nihilism. 😇
@djsumdog a valid reaction to the problem.
