Let’s just take this part of Bernie’s speech.
He says, “Here in the United States, in the UK, in France, and in many other countries around the world, people are working longer hours for stagnating wages, and worry that their children will have a lower standard of living than they do.”
Yeah, well, how can you in one breath say that the habitat of the planet is collapsing and then wonder why you work longer hours and your kids will have a lower standard of living?
Why is it that even Bernie Sanders won’t bring up overpopulation and the root cause of habitat collapse being too little resources for too many people?
This myth that if we just redistribute wealth people can continue to have children and have everything they need is what’s causing the habitat to collapse! Hello! Is there anyone out there?
This myth that we can return the planet to a simpler time where families could live in harmony with nature, and not have to worry about their children’s future, if only those bad people would stop being greedy, IS THE CAUSE OF HABITAT COLLAPSE!
It’s simple math.
And it’s always someone else’s fault. Yes there are greedy people. Yes Trump is an idiot and his minions want one more day of oil profits. No there is no clear alternative right now. We all use oil, around the world, every city, every person. Every city looks the same now. We all wear the same clothes and drive the same cars. Oil runs the entire thing.
And Yes, we should share resources. But if you do not have resources, if the ecology has been disrupted, then you can not share. The more people, the less habitat. The more habitat chaos, the more people die.
See Hurricane Michael for details. And look at the details of that hurricane. Just awesome and radically different from other storms.
Those children in front of that hurricane not only do not have a future, they do not have a NOW!
Stop having more children! Unless you don’t mind them running for their lives.
