You’re in denial. You don’t need yet another convincing argument, you need a sledge hammer.
Help us. We’re on a mission. To wake up the zombie masses from their consumerist, cyber, capitalist stupor to the perils our Earth is facing. We’re working on a series of fierce 15-second mind-bombs that will go viral on YouTube and air hundreds of times on TV channels across the world. This wake up call is designed to leaves everyone who sees it transformed . . . unable to return to a life of ecological amnesia. We hope to trigger a monumental mind shift in the way humanity thinks about climate change and the possibility that our current capitalist system will crash and bring down civilization as we know it . . . unless . . . we resist.
Discussing geophysicist Brad Werner’s now-famous research paper, Is Earth f**ked?, Naomi Klein writes: “the bottom line [is] clear enough: global capitalism has made the depletion of resources so rapid, convenient and barrier-free that ‘earth-human systems’ are becoming dangerously unstable in response. When [Werner was] pressed by a journalist for a clear answer on the “are we f**ked” question, Werner set the jargon aside and replied, ‘More or less.’” . . . BUT, Klein continues . . .
There is one dynamic in the model, however, that offered some hope. Werner terms it “resistance” – movements of “people or groups of people” who “adopt a certain set of dynamics that does not fit within the capitalist culture.” According to the abstract for his presentation, this includes “environmental direct action, resistance taken from outside the dominant culture, as in protests, blockades and sabotage by indigenous peoples, workers, anarchists and other activist groups.”
