All our movements need to share info and act in informed solidarity to address the foundations of the multiple crises that are destroying society, the economy, the ecology, and civilization.

That phrase is no exaggeration – society, the economy, the ecology, and civilization are being destroyed. And as Ceballos Gonzaléz states, these destructive processes are accelerating.

We need to listen to each other, and work together to change the human forces that are driving these massively destructive crises. This will require a transformation, a revolution, a fundamental change in how the economy and society work.

Of course it is available.
This too has to end:

If life on Earth can just survive another, say, 100 years it’ll probably be clear of us pesky & problematic homo sapiens…

Yes, the human race is killing itself and the of the planet along with it, with a lot of help from Donnie, his White "Nazi/Fascist Supremacist Sociopath American Jihadists and various other sociopaths around the globe. Ain’t life in the 21st century great? Ain’t we just MAGA-oting everything decent good and beautiful?
