🔥Greta anointed: “My deontological prescriptions don’t care about your consequences”
Perhaps the undoing of humankind began in that moment after its doing, we imprinted with a fatal flaw, making ourselves social-scientifically ignorant.
There is that person who thinks they understand the consequences of highly complex interventions on human societies by introspection alone.
Not only do they think they understand the consequences of alternative policy choices, but they’re so confident that their understanding is right and that its truth is so obvious that the only explanation for disagreement is evil intentions.
Anti-consequentialism is easy to maintain so long as you believe the consequences of your proposals are desirable, but most would fold if convinced otherwise.
The real problem is convincing anyone, which involves first convincing them they don’t already know the answers, which involves getting them to disassociate with their political allies enough to think critically, which involves upending a defining feature of their identity.
Greta's OpEd
“...the climate crisis is not just about the environment. It is a crisis of human rights, of justice, and of political will. Colonial, racist, and patriarchal systems of oppression have created and fueled it. We need to dismantle them all.” bit.ly/37MRI5x
Meanwhile in reality: swarms of locusts are devastating Africa = extreme weather over the past 2yrs that has been cycles forever,
'climate change' is being blamed.
It's not true.
But media ignores the human tragedy so they can use it as a testimonial 😢
Greta re-appears, her foundation to "promote ecological and social sustainability, as well as mental health."
🔥Greta'opian consequences "more EU-funded NGOs have descended on the Kenyan parliament to demand that the government disarm itself in the battle against locusts. They want the Kenyan government to outlaw the pesticides used to fight locusts..." bit.ly/2Vd9U5E
