Well I for one stopped following, reading this topic awhile back.
It bores me.
Just fellows advocating the best way of Top-Down a'changing'needed.
Screw that approach. Never works. Just flips from one group of earnest Believers to the other. Ha! Like the American two main political parties. Each insisting on you 'afore me - or a'gain' me miopia. Ignoring the 3-5 other registered parties. Painting us true hard core Independents as "undecided".
I did decide decades ago to as much as possible to Independently, issue by issue, decide for myself.
Of course human activity is making an impact on the planet. Been doing that long before dug-up, drilled pumped up fossil fuels. Make the Egyptians, Chinese, Greeks, Romans, Gauls/Norse war-makers put all of the trees back they used up and did not replace! Ainta'gonna happen. Man impacting climate goes back that far.
Anyone not seeing that this current carbons-hating social/political's is not just another power-grabbing ploy is delusional.
The only rational response to the grabbers in your life is to as much as possible, Opt Out!
Here is your line,
"No Sir. No Ma'am. Did not ask for this. Don't want it. Don't need it. And could't afford it if I did."
Raise your own eggs means you opt'ed out of all of the Big-Agra spin games. Side stepped State "organic" regulators.
Growing,harvesting your own annual heating fuel means you opt'ed out of the whole Big-Oil, Nuke-electric, green-green Not-natural gas spin game.
Buy used cars, trucks for cash. Opt out of the whole Top-Down financiers spin games.
Use a credit card only as a point of purchase debit card. Always pay off monthly. Better. Just buy pre-paid cards for those Net purchases.
If you have "investments" keeping you trapped stock-markets following distracted, scared. Cash out. I did. Any paper losses you see are just honey traps to keep you stuck in.
ONLY buy into insurances that are ceasar mandated. Insurances are assurances of your bought-in slavery. And if you have to slave away a bit supporting Urban Towers of Power. Slave as slowing as possible, giving them the least input validations.
This means instead of jabber scheming how not to use one single drop of gasoline . . .now, today use less. Tomorrow, use even less yet. I use 1/4 of the gasoline I used just ten years ago. Use 1/2 the Grid electricity I used ten years ago.
Incremental, every week, every year, step by step freeing progress is how you ween yourself to effective Opt-out of Them. And Opt-In for yourself.
Anything else is just crying, bitching, moaning, grandstanding. Furies with no positive results applied to yourself and those daily depending on you.
And if you are not doing all of this for daily use for yourself and yours . . . .you ain't worth spit. Certainly not worth reading.
