Hipsters decide to hold up public transport with a protest for the environment...
(that's right, hold up public transport for the environment)
in a working class area outside London...
during rush hour...
results are as follows...

Hahahahaha beautiful!

These pricks make me weep for mankind. Their heads are so far up their own arsehole they genuinely believe they are the glorious, altruistic saviours of planet Earth. And it's that dangerously obnoxious cocktail of delusion and smugness that makes these braindead morons come up with their pathetic, attention-seeking little acts of public annoyance. I have yet to meet a single one of these freaks that didn't have the following profile: upper middle class, extremely privileged, ultra gullible and living in a politically correct, elitist bubble entirely detached from the real world.

But you could almost forgive them if they actually made a difference, actually came up with workable solutions and changed the world for the better. But they don't. And what makes matters worse is that I'm certain most of them don't even care about that. All they care about is being seen to care. Being seen to appear virtuous, without actually ever scratching the surface of genuine righteousness. It's all about scoring points, feeding their smugness and pretending to be a rebel in order to give their hollow lives the faintest morsel of meaning. They're disgusting.

Inevitably, they end up doing more harm to whatever trending cause it is they latch themselves onto than if they had never bothered to intervene in the first place. And for those who genuinely care about the environment and the impact of mankind on nature (a group I include myself in), that is what makes their whole charade even less palatable. Good on you, working people of London.

I imagine England is like a big nursing home, mashed everything and more people than teeth in the room. At least the people with mouths like that here are from the armpit of the country and have to subsist of mountain dew because the water has been fracked away.

I never said everyone protesting for the climate is politically correct and upper middle-class. I said that each time I have met people similar to those in the video clips, they have all had similar backgrounds. It's called noticing a pattern.

There are plenty of normal people who go on marches for the environment. But that's not who we're talking about.

This whole kind of thing's very weird, these intense rampages of extreme conviction have this way of making you really disoriented about reacting, knowing that not being with such things gets you marked, and that really amplifies acting and talking freakishly when faced with such "events". For one thing, seeing them bend over backwards to polish themselves kind of makes you feel a need to some similar things in order to be able to face them.

XR explicitly panders to cops and landlords, and at the same time is encouraging young activists to get arrested, printed, etc by disrupting already-struggling public transit instead of doing anything substantial against the primary drivers of climate change, e.g. giant multinationals, the MIC, or people whose monthly consumption far surpasses the lifetime footprint of a slum-dweller in Karachi. They are not changing the world, they are channeling the energy of people who could change the world into safe aesthetic 'radicalism' that at best allows people who say things like "tuneless droning" to feel like they're doing something while advocating the sort of weird malthusianism pushed by Bill Gates or the 'ecomodernism' beloved by tech entrepreneurs and leaving the structures of global capitalism intact.

They're trying to inconvenience people to get them to stir to action. It's obvious what the problems are and that action isn't being taken and the government don't need to be told. People are literally paid to suggest things and get ignored.

The problem is that they think by annoying you that the people responsible give a flying fuck about you. They don't. You could die and they would continue taking one man 737s for business trips and driving their enormous limos around. That's the singular failing. We don't need "a plan" we have lots of options we can take and it's obvious what the problems are. The only real failing is that they're not blockading the rich.

Everything is political, it's impossible to be apolitical. Politics doesn't have to be at the forefront of your mind every waking moment, but there's no escaping it.

Put another way, they're deciding to harras random people to completely offload the dillema of what sort of actions need to be taken onto those people. They smugly refuse to start any sort of portion of the solution! It seems like the whole point of this is that it has to be somebody else's duty, and that they're incensed that the government isn't pandering to their concerns as part of a long standing such sentiment about government not rapidly tackling all their worries.

If it was so obviuos, then it would be painfully straighforward to pick out things relating to the problem, to target the thing associated with that which action should be taken against.

Cult is an opinion of how nasty such shennanigans get, movementarian groups that people entrust with handling all such things have all sorts of dynamics of their own, and those often get very disturbing. Them pulling of a shot-to-its-own-foot like this proves that repulsive circle jerking cliques and things of that sort are able to descend to cult levels in a place like london.

But someone already explained it very vividly, it's hardly so much a cult of ecological disaster anticipation as a cult of protesting. It's a cult who's defining belief is that it's cool to hold up a simplistic shiny infonugget that intimidates people. Now, they seem to have found themselves such a thing that makes people itch to question, especially when it's shoved at them intensely, but frustrated about not being able to push away, after the cultists themselves have finally vaguely figured out something that everyone else has also been getting told for forty years.

Attempting to boil down what scientists have been saying over 40 years into a set of slogans is not something that's in line with getting anything useful done.

Well, I guess that's kind of like human sacrifice. The important thing is to be bold, like to be safe-rather-than-sorry, that messages won't just be forgotten. So, it's not inconceivable that they could try, and, say, make a point about the dearness of rare animals by assasinating some white tigers!

Well, it is understandable that they'd really want to do something on subways because of the huge audience there, perhaps bolstered by how much people are recoiling from paying attention to much there and by the high likelihood of action in such a public place being noted and reported on.

But, damnit, it still has to make sense! On one level, or on another, or another, or better yet two of them, or still better, on all of them, it has to make sense! If they decided to protest some burger or hot dog joint for "defiling a green institution" with environment-harsh beef, that would make sense! If they protested that the subway company was avoiding putting solar panels, or wind turbines, in spare space that's particularly useful for such, like on the rooftops of above ground stretch of subway, that would make sense!

I was doing laundry in my basement, and I tripped over a metal bar that wasn't there the moment before. I looked down: "Rail? WTF?" and then I saw concrete sleepers underneath and heard the rumbling.

Deafening railroad horn. I dumped my wife's pants, unfolded, and dove behind the water heater. It was a double-stacked Z train, headed east towards the fast single track of the BNSF Emporia Sub (Flint Hills). Majestic as hell: 75 mph, 6 units, distributed power: 4 ES44DC's pulling, and 2 Dash-9's pushing, all in run 8. Whole house smelled like diesel for a couple of hours!

Fact is, there is no way to discern which path a train will take, so you really have to be watchful. If only there were some way of knowing the routes trains travel; maybe some sort of marks on the ground, like twin iron bars running along the paths trains take. You could look for trains when you encounter the iron bars on the ground, and avoid these sorts of collisions. But such a measure would be extremely expensive. And how would one enforce a rule keeping the trains on those paths?

>The protests associated with MLK are comparable with any other protest by virtue of them both being protests

Yeah and I guess America and Nazi Germany are comparable with each other by virtue of them both being countries. But there's a gulf of difference between the two when we step outside the world of abstraction. I'm not saying that civil disobedience is wrong, I'm saying that it has to be strategic and in service of a well-defined political program for it to be effective. Extinction Rebellion's weird stunts have earned them ire among ordinary people. Their strategy seems limited to "creating awareness" (as if the problem is that the public just doesn't know about climate change) and creating headlines, and that's fine, but toward what end is all this nonsense? Getting in the way of working people and their jobs in a society where work is increasingly precarious and it's increasingly easy to get laid off (e.g., for being late to work) is only going to generate resentment against environmentalism, who appear to be Bohemian elitists (i.e., hipsters) and professional activists. The fact that the mainstream media and entertainment figures seem intent on broadcasting these morons only drives that appearance home for people who distrust the media and entertainment industry.

There's a lot of ignorance in your post. It's not your fault though. See, the mainstream media are not intent on broadcasting XR. The BBC practically had a media blackout on them the entire past two weeks. All the actions like blocking an airport mainly used by business people, blocking roads outside government infrastructure and corporate headquarters, even blockading the BBC itself - all of that was ignored, almost hushed up. The only thing that did get headlines was when they were violently assaulted by a few of the working class. Obviously you're ignorant of this because they didn't broadcast it, so I do get where you're coming from. But you're constructing your otherwise reasonable opinion on misinformation.

Why would they expect a man dressed as broccoli to have anything meaningful to say? And "leaders of XR"? I've never heard of her, she's just some person. Like I said, you don't know the context and you're allowing yourself to be led by what Piers Morgan of all people wants you to think.

I was just pointing out the they are getting media coverage. If a man dressed as a broccoli doesn't have anything to say, then he's a bad representative for the cause. Also just because you've never heard of someone doesn't mean they aren't a prominent member of an organization. You said nothing about me not knowing context or letting Piers Morgan lead what I think. First time you've mentioned it.

Yes, that's why Piers chose to let him on.

There's an exception to this, can you figure it out?

Oh boohoo, poor you, so tragically incapable of picking out anything different among everything that's here, so you swing for some kind of reset switch to contort it into some standardized left-right-pingpong.

Have you considered that people in such an organization know full well what they're doing and have their reasons? You can't expect them to be 100% in tune with each other no matter what, so why not actually take that into consideration and wonder just how far down that road shit goes?

I mean, even McVeigh ended up looking exceptionally competant after his defence of the Branch Davidians. He was reported as having been strikingly lucid.

You cannot simply judge these things in terms of competance. Having extensively witnesses such people up close, I can tell you that even people praised as "competant" rapidly acknowledge social purpose movements as being jarringly unlike businesses, even as they dream at the top of their lungs of endless blurred lines between businesses and cause-operations.

Okay, that's just weird. Although you are in principle taking the same kind of thing that I've been saying, of them embracing an MO that includes not knowing much of what they're doing, amounting to one particular form of *washing their hands,* you then end up feeling the need to go completely over the top with it. Of all people, you're applying it to the leaders? That's not how delegation of direction and understanding works. How would the leaders not know what they're buying into, they're the ones selling it!

Saying that they just have no political plans is trusting to the point of being a cop-out. The political situation is quite unstable at this time, and politics is generally a crapshot to begin with, so planning would be particularly unreliable today when they don't know what benefits lie ahead, and guessing would just lead to members getting irate about being stiffed. But, having known leaders who take note of everything unfolding contrary to expectations and screaming out "grow the movement organically!", even such people have plans, of all sort, layers of plans, and more significantly take issue with subpar planning. And even when everything was flopping, there were still things the believers were getting out of it.

I mean, I can understand why you write it off so, it is an effective way to avoid being paranoid like the others on your side in this thread to proclaim, "Meh! They're just bumbling!", but it's still functions the same way as an accessible/easy/handy reduction.

Anyone else notice a lot fo protests recently but there has been literally no actual signs being held with any real names identifying any of the protests? Like the headlines say who they are and the little captions at the bottom always claim anarchists or leftists or climate rioters but in a world with a literal camera on every conrer none of the groups seem to be posting their own photos to public media and the actual people defining the groups are never identified as being in any journalist circle.

I demand a little bit more proof of something being a riot than some anonymous asshole claiming people in black are for or against any definitive cause. Everyone is so quick to rush to judgement and flip out it disturbs me.

If you are fucking protesting something put it on a fucking sign and define who you are or be defined by the eyes accusing you of being something you are not! And for fucks sakes everyone watching. You will miss a day of work and it will cost you everything. Fuck your bosses who don't pay you enough to miss 3 hours of work because of a protest. If you are beating up protestors you are a bad guy. No matter who you are or they are. Unless that protestor is literally encouraging ethnic cleansing of minorities you can't fucking hit people!!!

> I never said everyone protesting for the climate is politically correct and upper middle-class.
> I said that each time I have met people similar to those in the video clips, they have all had similar backgrounds. It's called noticing a pattern.
Semantics. It comes down to the same thing.
> There are plenty of normal people who go on marches for the environment. But that's not who we're talking about.
Wait, so there are people who don't fit into the stereotype you've described, but they just don't matter? Get your fucking story straight, Warlord.

It's not bad man. Yeah yeah why expand the concrete jungle. At the other token it takes alot for a city consule to provide public transport. As far as underground subways are concerned. It's definitely a way to provide people in need. Maybe too many are in some fucked hostile type of predicament. Be religious, economical , ECT ECT.

So, modern city-living in a nutshell? Just rip up the roads and sidewalks, plant some trees and parks, convert skyscrapers and financial institutions into gardens and be done with it

Because a major disruption in the supply chain of things like food and consumer goods along with densely populated coastal areas becoming unlivable and the collapse of infrastructure delivering things like electricity and clean water doesn't equate to "destabilization of society" unless chinabot weighs in on the issue.

We should be doing this all anyway. Look at it like this:

Think of the Earth's ecosystems and human civilization like, the inner workings of a nuclear reactor. Well, the reactor is starting to melt down, some fuckwit named Homo sapiens pressed all the wrong buttons. So, what do you do? You safely run through all the procedures to turn off the reactor (human civilization) to bring it down to a state of neutral energy output/input so you can later come in and build a better design that isn't as flimsy. We basically need to dismantle what we have been doing, because we've been doing it wrong, or out of ignorance at least. So, hyperproductivity rat race culture, the 40 hour work week, money, consumerism, even the way we power things has to go. We need to bring our own civilization into harmony and balance with the planetary system at large, because the planet is not our civilization's, our civilization is the planet's. And if we want to survive we need to reimagine how we do things, drastically. I only say we should willingly do this because it will happen in any case, if the ecosystems collapse most humans will die, along with the wildlife, and the survivors will have to rebuild anyway, and they most assuredly will, and they will do it knowing what their ancestors have brought upon the planet, and they will do better than we have.
