When it comes to climate change, yes.Are you saying democracy is worthless then?
And what would you replace it with?
Yeah, that's the problem.And what would you replace it with?
Any system of governance involving humans will become corrupted at some point by greed and or power.
A benevolent dictatorship could work if the dictator couldn't or doesn't end up becoming corrupted or undermined in some way
Yes. Yes it is.That's not really an answer....
...the necessity was realised decades ago. But democracy has failed to perform required action. As, you say, has been demonstrated "time and time again".The necessity may be realised too late as is being demonstrated time and time again
And yet its not so your answer isn't very valid as by now it should have been replaced. But it hasn't so we are not inventing anything. Just doing the status quo.Yes. Yes it is.
...the necessity was realised decades ago. But democracy has failed to perform required action. As, you say, has been demonstrated "time and time again".
We don't need to know what to replace it with before we replace it. That's just another excuse for inaction. There are stacks of academics with lots of other made up systems (for that is what democracy is) ready to take it's place.
Errr. That's the whole point? Democracy is a useless piece of shit when it comes to the survival of the human race, clearly.And yet its not so your answer isn't very valid as by now it should have been replaced.
So I ask again then what would you replace it with as your answer was rubbish as clearly necessity hasn't provided an answer....Errr. That's the whole point? Democracy is a useless piece of shit when it comes to the survival of the human race, clearly.
That includes recognising and doing something about it - replacing itself with a system that can and does respond to existential threats.
Go back and read my post. I said - "there are stacks of academics with lots of other made up systems (for that is what democracy is) ready to take it's place". So go pick one if you're interested. Look em up yourself.So I ask again then what would you replace it with as your answer was rubbish as clearly necessity hasn't provided an answer....
It's pointless talking to that's why the facepalm.
I'm happily criticising Biden but I don't accept that he's just as bad as Trump.So @Wij. Gonna post monibot so I can rub your fur the wrong way to start with
Effective action against climate breakdown is near impossible while governments are vulnerable to lawsuits, says Guardian columnist George Monbiotwww.theguardian.com
Given recent events in the US and Afghanistan (including the thunderous 'blame Afghans' that came out of Biden's mouth), lack of meaningful movement on the economy and the above points made that paint a - totally accurate - picture that under Democrat rule there is no urgency at all to fix our ongoing global catastrophe and that nothing meaningful has changed since Trump was ousted.
In fact it's so Republican-like business-as-usual they've granted 2000 more fracking permits when the IPCC have been saying we need to retire current oil fields, never mind not open new ones.
I did a search on "meet the new boss" as I've used it frequently when arguing (a lot of the time with you) about a change of politician being just a smokescreen for inaction - largely when I can evidence that they're just the same and nothing is changing.
Joe Biden is just as big a cunt as Donald Trump. In fact - it's arguable that the Democrats are bigger cunts overall because they're just as bad as the GOP but get an easier ride / have better PR to justify their outright twattery.
You refuted this POV very strongly multiple times and you've (admirably) continued your campaign to show republican corruption. But you're failing to address the bigger question - who gives a fuck if the GOP is corrupt if the outcome of the Dem's is no different? It means all your good efforts are just howling at the moon because the fundamental problem isn't being addressed.
I'm not going to suggest you turn your energy away from Trump and his cronies. But I am going to challenge you to prove me wrong now. You've refuted my "meet the new boss" arguments repeatedly but all along I've been able to show evidence of actions taken that prove my POV.
I'd dearly love to be wrong. But I think that peaceful engagement in politics the way it stands right now is pointless, fruitless, waste of what little life we have. We're whining about unimportant fringe issues that even if resolved will make no substantive difference.
Can you show me I'm not wrong? Because all the arguments I've made are holing up very well.
Joe Biden: Meet the new boss. Just the same (or insideously worse in some ways) than the old boss.
Doing nothing is honest. They're not "doing something". I was explicit - they're pretending to do something.So doing nothing is better than doing something?
It's not nothing though is it? It's just not enough.Doing nothing is honest. They're not "doing something". I was explicit - they're pretending to do something.
That pretending to do something makes the population think that something is being done. Frankly, that makes us less likely to get angry and take action of our own. And if we're to fix this problem, we're clearly at that point (have been at that point for a long time).
So yes. The dems are insidious.
They greenwash politics.
