Part 2: Leading Environmentalists Decry Inaction by United Nations on Climate Crisis

*Vital information here, but it’s hard to listen to someone as open eyed as D’Sa close them to the reality of Mandela’s legacy.

The ANC’s grand bargain with the white elites and the transnational corporations is the reason black and poor South Africans face the dire conditions they do.

Whatever positive steps he may have taken as president pale next to that grave harm.

Of course, his voice still carried great weight after he left office, and what did he do with that moral capital?

I don’t mean to paint Mandela as a charlatan, but as with so many other icons, there are contradictions that must be confronted if we are to honestly assess their lives, and thus learn the lessons we need to from them.

Guns and the Southern Freedom Struggle: What’s Missing When We Teach About Nonviolence
by Charles E. Cobb

*Chinn’s relatives – perhaps children or grandchildren – Justine and Spencer (if memory serves) Chinn, were the first black children to “integrate” the Canton public school system in 1965.

I was a nine year old white boy going to Canton Elementary at the time. I believe Justine was around my age, and Spencer a little younger. I never interacted with them, or recall being in a class with them.

I use quotes above because they were the only black kids in the system until that farce was forced by the federal government in 1970, at which time whites (including me) fled en masse to private “academies”. That was replicated across the state to one degree or another.

I can’t imagine what that was like for the Chinn children. I don’t remember any overt hostility toward them, though there may have been.

Regardless, their solitary presence amongst a sea of white faces had to have been a singularly unsettling experience for them to endure each school day.

If renewables are the province of corporate entities who are able to inflate prices to align with their profit projections, all those wonderful cost savings are essentially kaput, and we’ll be struggling just as hard to pay our bills.

Again, the system needs to be targeted, not merely the nature of its products.

Heirs of Billionaire Oil Tycoon John D. Rockefeller Join Growing Fossil Fuel Divestment Movement

*While it’s better to invest in clean energy than fossil fuels, it’s still a profit system centric action, and as such is nothing more than a band aid that doesn’t heal the wound.

Capitalism is the culprit here, and making it “better” doesn’t address the core issue, which is the absolute necessity for transformative change in how we relate to the earth and each other.

The planet has been seriously injured, and for it, and us, to survive, we have to go beyond doing “what makes good financial sense”.

A People’s Climate Movement: Indigenous, Labor, Faith Groups Prepare for Historic March

*I don’t understand the logic of divesting from fossil fuel corps, only to reinvest in them when they seek to profit off renewable energy.

You can talk all you want about “encouraging” that shift, but why not invest those funds in decentralized renewable entities?

Perhaps the argument is that these funds need to make a certain return on investment, and that at least it’s being made on something that isn’t exacerbating climate change.

But there are other types of damage. These corps are still criminals, and if you believe in the connection among all struggles for justice, how do you justify putting your money where your mouth ain’t?

And I really don’t give a flying fuck about anything that comes out of the mouth of Al Gore.

Whomever succeeds him will continue the dismantling of the structures that prevented capitalism from devouring itself, along with everything in its path, as that is its nature.

All that is said with the proviso that we simply lay supine and allow it to happen.

But what does that say about our sense of humanity

If we don’t try?

We have no reason to be optimistic

And every reason to act as if there were.

Pillaging the Public Treasury – David Cay Johnston on Reality Asserts Itself (4/4)
Mr. Johnston says to ordinary Americans: You elected these people, you chose these people who are destroying your families, destroying your life, who are making the lives of your future generations worse off

*For someone who knows a great deal about the crimes perpetrated by profiteers, Johnston is incredibly naive about the nature of the system that perpetuates them, don’t you think?

He seems to believe that capitalism has been “hijacked”, and needs to get back to its noble roots.

But a system that posits competition – which by definition creates winners and losers, and values economic success over societal obligation – as its guiding principle will inevitably lead to exploitation.

You can do things to put pretty up the pig

But in the end

You’ll still be stuck in the sty.

I know they don’t give a shit about innocents being imprisoned or executed, especially those of color, but you’d think they want the true killers apprehended and punished.

Unless this isn’t really about crime and punishment
