Subject: Re: [unSYSTEM] Your Thoughts on Extinction Rebellion?
Greta Thunberg, extinction rebellion .etc is such a blatant guerilla
marketing campaign. The European parliament, and the UN, invite her to
speak. "You have the power to fix this" she says. Not that she's saying
"we have the power". She wants the state to fix the problem. What is the
end result of all this? Totalitarianism. It's too easy to look for a
simple fix, but then you are just the plaything of power. First we must
deepen our perspective. Philosophy is your saviour. Then you will have
the power to direct your action. Do you want to change the world? Then
lets become the best human beings we can be first - mentally, physically
and spiritually. There's no good and evil, just humans. And we must
first aspire to the good. As Nietzsche said "When you stare into the
abyss, the abyss will stare back at you". He meant that when you fight
evil, you become evil. First we must develop our vision, our thoughts to
really know the world for what it is: philosophy, sociology, psychology,
... start with Manifesto for a Democratic Civilization parts 1 & 2 by
Abdullah Ocalan. Study these texts, don't just read them like a story book.

Also about the third world, there's opportunities there you won't find
in the west. Western civilization is already past its peak and on a
large decline. The society in general lacks hardened people and any
sense of struggle. It really is the last men of history Nietzsche talked
about. I think the real basis of struggle in this coming global dark
ages will be local rebellions coopted by people of higher cultural standing.
