I find most of us here tend to be fairly enlightened, even if we don't always agree. And whatever side of the carbon tax, oil industry, and pipeline debate you sit on I'm sure everyone agrees that the fossil fuel industry is incredibly rich and even more incredibly powerful. Same can easily be said for the military industrial complex, particularly in the US. If you don't accept or understand how powerful these entities are, then take a listen to the following podcast. The idea of the deep state may seem like tinfoil hat material, but this podcast lays out in great detail everything you as a human being need to know to realize why we need to change the course we're on. The current mess sweeping the globe is part of that equation, when you start to look at some of the supply logistics that are problematic in the medical field that has hospitals in Seattle asking members of the public to donate basic supplies such as surgical masks. Whatever your view, sit back with an open and critical mind, makes some notes of things you think are suspect so you can research them more after, and share this with people you know.
I'm not a human in real life, I just play one on the internet.
