When the inevitable collapse occurs, and historians look back on this time and place with ‘what were they thinking’ attitudes, just know that some of us saw it coming.
Some of us saw that cultural diseases like feminism turned women and men against it other while society crumbled.
Some of us saw that our reckless economic policies were not based on reality, and that our endless wars and military spending were clearly not good ideas.
Some of us saw that the environment is getting absolutely raped in multiple ways, humans killing species at 10,000x the natural rate, poisoning our water for oil, endless air pollution etc.
So yes, our ‘leaders’ lead us off this cliff, they effectively placed protocols and societal structures to prevent any change to the status quo and power dynamics, it that regard they could be ‘commended’ if it was such a good thing.
If its any consolation to our epithet, some of us did see it coming, but we couldn’t do anything about it.
