So, he wants to smash heteronormativity to save humanity?

Pfft! Just another unattractive guy that can’t get chicks with his personality, sense of humor or ability to provide.

Africans didn't colonize not because they didn't want to or because they were superior human beings, but because they didn't develop the technology to project their cultures beyond their immediate borders, despite the fact that (as we're constantly reminded), civilization supposedly began on the Dark Continent.

Thus, when Europeans, from much younger civilizations, DID develop that technology, they overcame the primitive societies of Africa, exploited their resources, and brought a measure of success, education, and prosperity to the otherwise backward natives.

Almost all African nations are now "independent" from their former imperialist rulers. And look how well they're doing. They were crapholes before the Europeans came; they managed to experience some degree of civilization briefly while the Europeans were there then they threw them out, now they're crapholes once again.

So spare me the "European Oppression" Chorus.

Wow...that is breathtaking.

As usual with leftists, there is not a hint of the solution, just an endless list of grievances. What is their solution? Wiping out the entire human race? Is just wiping out people with European ancestors?

I read about Manson back in the eight grade.

Until then I thought about hyppies as dopey but well intented dropouts.

After reading ‘Helter Skelter” I viewed them as dangerous, revolutionary pyschos intend on destroying American and Western civilization
Probably why I became a conservative.

“Damned Dirty Hyppies”, I say!

So much bull puckey piled up in one place.

Reading this made me feel like I need a shower...though I had one 3 hours ago.
How can these unwashed crretins stand being the same room with themselves?

Gee, with a moral backpack full of that much Euro ancestor guilt, why doesn’t Mr. Stuart just end it all? That act of self-destruction would probably have more real effect on resolving “the problem” than all of his activism and moralistic bleating.

In fact, he should probably delay his own departure and instead use his considerable organizing talents to encourage as many of his like-minded fellow travelers to off themselves as soon as possible. To have maximum effect on reducing the terrible impact on the environment, they could even hold great “Offing Festivals” where participants (especially the longer lived young) could get high, listen to really cool music, eat healthy vegan cuisine, hear motivational speeches, have tantric sex with whoever/whatever, climb into self-closing body bags (to make clean-up and disposal quick and easy), and finally take fatal drugs for their trip into oblivion.

Of course, disposal will be “green” as well. What a feast for the worms.

If the problem is not the climate, and the point is to focus on all the deep seated anti white crap, that's an admission that not only is the climate not the point, but the climate is NOT a real problem.

It would make no sense to be telling us the real problem is the underlying way we relate ... because the underlying way we relate is meaningless if everybody is going to be dead in 11-point-whatever years if we don't take immediate drastic action.

In other words, if a person is in the middle of a deadly heart attack, and the EMS people are telling the family 'ok well now we need to have a conversation about salt and fat' ... etc. ... instead of rushing the person to the hospital, then we can conclude the EMS people are not really concerned about a heart attack, i.e. there is no heart attack.

The logical conclusion of this person's argument is that 'XR does not believe there is a real climate danger.'

***We’ve only got a few years left to ‘fix’ it.***

We were told the same thing back in 1968 with the coming collapse of civilization. Remember all those HOW TO SURVIVE books back then?

We were supposed to be living in the Stone Age by now.

Ummm? Involved in Rising Up since November 2016, almost 3 years? We are losing 200 species per day? That equals about 216,000 species that have become extinct.

Dude, seriously 😳????? Send me a list.
