Degrowth is the only hope

Imagine a world where you work three or four days a week. In your free time, you play sports, spend time with loved ones, garden, and engage with local politics. Overnight shipping, advertising, private jets, billionaires and SUVs no longer exist, but health care, education, and clean electricity are free and available to all.

We must massively reduce our energy and material consumption to have any hope of saving our environment.

Did you ever believe that Hunter Biden took a #laptop full of incriminating information into a computer repair shop and abandoned it there? That the repair shop decided to examine its contents and transmit them to Rudy Giuliani and Steve Bannon?

Of course not. Because you have more common sense than reporters and editors at every major news organization.

The whole thing was a Russian disinformation op, in partnership with the GOP. And it's ongoing. Where's the press?

"For years I’ve continued saying, against what seems like the unified thinking of every reporter, editorialist and credentialed smart person, that the fabled 'Hunter Biden Laptop' was obviously the product of a Russian influence operation. …

Yet basically everybody and I mean everybody ended up falling for this."

Corporate media fell for these inanities because they WANTED to fall for them.
