Ok, I’m going to try to respond for the sake of denying ignorance. But just going to warn you in advance how cynical I am about it amounting to
anything. Because I’ve been down this road MANY times now with other sure-of-themselves ats members and it leads nowhere since they ALWAYS end up on
their heels and ONLY concerned with protecting their own ego rather than actually denying ignorance. Since you already came into this thread guns
blazing I have very little hope this streak will end here…but what the heck let’s give it a shot.
Now I’m saying all this since you’ve already apparently profiled me as some zeitgeist hippy red idealist - only fair I get a shot at you. And
needless to say at this point I’ve seen your “type” enough times to write a book. You’re sooo in love with how much more anti-establishment
and in-the-know you are than everyone else you completely reject anything that threatens this narcissistic paradigm, no matter how much it actually
makes sense. In fact the more it makes sense, the angrier and defensive you just get. The way you started this discussion with how I “almost had
you” but then immediately proceeded to attack me based on loosely connected personal issues you seem to have with the Zeitgeist Movement only adds
to my point.
In regards to the climate change issue - you get all your
information from sensationalist media sources or unreliable blogs, so you just assume
everyone else does too. However, yours are automatically validated because they’re so anti-establishment. Thus they can’t possibly be full of ####
themselves, so you never bother to actually fact check them or investigate the whole story. You just assume anyone who bothers to do that is clearly
brainwashed by the Man and trying to fit things into their pre-conceived beliefs, because there’s no way
that could possibly in fact be
Now at this point you’re probably smirking to yourself about how arrogant, naïve and hypocritical I am to just brazenly declare you the brainwashed
one without taking a look at myself. But you see - this isn’t just cynical experience or defensive posturing talking – because in fact I have
It’s right here:
What does plastic have anything to do with "Global Warming"? If you truly cared about the environment you might realize that global warming
alarmism diverts attention and energy away from real-life, undisputable problems like the plastic issue you're now mentioning.
The fact that you even have to ask this question tells me everything I need to know. It clearly shows how much YOU have been conditioned to think
Global Warming “alarmism” is ALL about “global governance and taxing the air we breathe yaddi yadda” and all that political junk.
In the meantime – you yourself are championing the “undisputable” environmental problems associated with plastics but of course without even
bothering to ask yourself where plastic actually comes from
So the fact is global warming completely draws
attention to these issues, not diverts from them – because they are all intrinsically related
and part of the same bigger problem. But you have to actually think
about it instead of just thinking you already know everything there is to
And this is just a tiny taste of how much bigger the whole story really is. I have tried to connect some of the dots in the OP using little more than
common sense and everyday observation (something which you apparently label as “fearmongering” lol) but even that is only scratching the surface.
Yet it’s funny how about 50 other people on this thread seem to get it immediately but you completely missed the point because you are apparently so
much more aware than all of us brainwashed “communists”.
Again, I’ve seen it a million times at this point – so it’s nothing new. You want to prove me wrong – then fire back with something actually
constructive instead of foolishly cocky about how little everyone else supposedly understands about global warming or the environment *yawn*.
