i feel so fucking dispirited and fatalistic right

i feel so fucking dispirited and fatalistic right now

i can’t look/read any stuff about the environment

because, more than anything, it makes me feel hopeless

pretty much all the news you hear these days

is that unless there are drastic changes in how literally everything is

done.

we are fucking dead probably by 2050. maybe an extra 50 years for people

already living in the kind of conditions that’ll become even more

widespread.

everything needs to change. all of it.

but. the economy that drives the world right now (the us)

can’t even get their shit together enough to get all of their citizens

health care

(beyond steadfastly refusing to participate in any international efforts)

and, fuck, canada has basically stopped caring about the environment. at a

time when (if memory serves) China was finally ready to come to the table

and talk.

it makes me hopeless because, yeah, i believe that freedom is possilbe.

i’m optimistic there.

but.

this requires we live. that white people (beyond any actually reasonable

expectation) decide to stop destroying the planet.

this is unlikely since white people have no compassion

or any ability to collectively work for change.

we can be free

but white people are probably going to destroy our ability to live on this

planet before it happens
