Power elite?

I don't think it's just the power elite who are concerned.

Right now her ideas are very appealing to the Reddit/tumblr intelligencia.

Just understand when they begin to appeal to the average low-middle low income American that you will be the new "power elite."

We are all "power-elite" here compared to low-middle income young people.


My entire existence is a failed gotcha

At this point, I'm less concerned about redistribution than I am about the legalized bribery of Citizens United--the tyranny of moneyed interests.

Yep, all conservatards claim to hate money in politics, then when asked why they support Citizens United you get crickets or some idiotic rant about socialism.

If AOC was even halfway right then we need to so some things she's not going to like:

Nuke 100% of the urban population centers all over the world because hey, it's WWII for the species and there are going to be casualties. If the eco-fascists want mankind to go back to the agrarian lifestyle then it is what it is.

Stop all 3rd world immigration into all 1st world nations because going from one to the other triples or quadruples that individual's carbon footprint.

No travel except for essential government and commerce functions. Not by air, sea or land - even in your own car. So much for the selfies - and the tourism industry. You needs to keep your ass at home. After all, it's for the planet, cuz.

One-child limits - all the other babies get culled

Reduce the size of government and all non-essential commerce (say goodbye to the theater kids and the arts and crafts crowd) because those functions are not necessary under the survival conditions

Obviously cease all meat production and much of the non-essential food processing because that's superfluous commerce, employment and transportation that isn't necessary. Soylent Green, bro. You;ll take your steel rolled oats and you'll like it.

And DEFINITELY no surfing because every single piece of gear and equipment is toxic to the planet. You might be able to make a handplane, though - if you can get to the beach on foot or by bike. And you don't live in one of the urban population centers we had to nuke.

Etc.

I mean, if this is war and losing it means we're all gonna die then nothing short of the heroic effort is gonna cut it.

Humanity will either solve the nuclear waste disposal issue or learn to live with sustainable sources.

Do you know if they are making any in-roads?

I notice that efficiency is an untapped resource.

We could be so much more efficient.

But I think some see this as commie faggotry.

China and India are also building literally 1000's of NEW coal fired electric energy plants world-wide in the next 10-20 years. Reason alone to bomb them back to the stone age, right?

Greens like AOC should be plotting to bomb the shit out of those sites before they start firing up and belching their evil planet killing filth, right?

Each one of those is like a new cancer cell exploding into earths bloodstream, if AOC wants to save the world in the next 12 years?

What happened to think globally? We're already reducing CO2 considerably. China and India have been doubling if not tripling CO2 the last 10-15 years, and no end in sight, especially in the next 12 years.

She's clueless to what's really going on outside NYC.

Actually, I did leave one glaring omission on my to-do list

Cull everyone over 30, too. Carousel, baby. In which case AOC herself doesn't have 12 years left before it ends; she's got 1 year. Old fakas like me are on triple-overtime
