13th August 2023. It’s not just the individual stupidities which have become inexcusable, such as platforms repeatedly given to climate deniers. It’s the anti intellectualism, the hostility to new ideas. It’s the absence of moral seriousness. It’s the vacuous gossip about celebrities and consumables which takes over the conversation which takes precedence over the survival of the earth. It’s the obsession with generating noise. It’s the endless promotion of the views of the most selfish and antisocial and the exclusion of those trying to defend us from catastrophe.
