  • It’s a realy interesting tightrope. If you just stand in a field holdong signs your don’t really get media attention. in order to get that attention you must do something that grinds peoples’ gears enough to have media outlets pay attention to them. But that kind of action needs to skirt the vandalism vector, as otherwise people would be like ‘they removed the unimportant turnip of Weddelsex, but I dont care’ on the other hand You also cannot be too radical, as it will hurt your cause.

    It would be great if enviromentalists had a voice that could be audible over the control over media that is enacted by big companies (murdoch f.i.), but theres little big money in the message of climate awareness, and it’s a message most people dont’t reallt want to hear.

    So… You take aim at objects that are deemed worthwhile and important for the people you wish to reach and try to allign your message with the importance of those ancient and important works.

    It’s a losing battle as people choose comfort over complicated issues (seemingly) out of their control as annoyance, furthermore being made co-defendant in the case of climate destruction is rather jarring, therefore people are shy to pick up on them, as why should the burden be on them?

    So theres no way to positively make your message. Therefore any demonstration is jarring per se, even if peaceful it needs to be at least known, and ironicaaly the best way to do that is to do something outrageaus, as our reptile brain goes very hard on that.
















  • The military program started under former President Donald Trump and continued months into Joe Biden’s presidency, Reuters found – even after alarmed social media executives warned the new administration that the Pentagon had been trafficking in COVID misinformation. The Biden White House issued an edict in spring 2021 banning the anti-vax effort.

    I think this is important to note. Even though the Biden admin eventually stopped it, it could have been done sooner.
