Thread: #XR isnt about climate

Stuart Basden Co-founder Extinction Rebellion says XR not about Climate (that's just a symptom of a toxic system that has infected the ways we relate to each other as humans and to all life)"

XR is about #decolonialism
XR about #decolonialism: Basden says "how European ‘civilisation’ spread around the globe thru cruelty & violence over the last 600 years of colonialism, where the roots of the infections go much further back"
Basden #XR: "#Europeans spread their toxicity around the world, they brought torture, genocide, carnage & suffering to the ends of the earth. Their cultural myths justified the horrors, idea that indigenous people were animals (not humans)"
#XR about #decolonialism: the constructed delusions that have been coded into societies & institutions around the world:
White supremacy
Class hierarchy
Basden #XR: "To focus on climate’s breakdown (symptom) without focusing attention on toxic delusions (causes) is a form a denialism. Worse, it’s racist & sexist form of denialism, that takes away from the necessary focus of the need for all of us to de-colonise our selves
So Extinction Rebellion isn’t about #climate. Not even about climate justice"

Basden says "we are missing the deeper problems plaguing our culture, if we only talk about the climate"

🗣 Basden's grp of delusions 'the causes' are issues for our #Govts to solve not activist
🗣 Basden 'symptoms & causes' are somewhat baffling. I'm confused abt whether XR is or isnt a grassroot climate movement or just a cult rebellion against society today, selective on past colonialism, dislike european civilisation, decolonialism, reparations, marxism, #TheLeft
Thread: Extinction Rebellion cult wears climate mask to hide #FarLeft ideology: #Socialist #Marxist #Totalitarian #antiCapitalist #antiEconomic Growth 👇
Extinction Rebellion is a anarchy cult that wants to bring down the current #Government system
