I will give you a little hint here, NOTHING will cause these apocalyptic cultists from ever saying that the world is not ending. They will ALWAYS have some scheme for syphoning money and freedoms from the populace to achieve the unachievable.

They will forever torment us.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be "cured" against one's will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.”​

There is one thing I do not understand. Now I do not support every plan devised, far from it but destroy the world or not why should we not work to clean up our act?

I am going to agree and we as a society should strive at not destroying so much and clean up what we have destroyed for generations.

We have the technology and yet we can not or will not work on making this World a better place…

Since 2000 we have lowered our CO2 emissions by 25%, China, India and Europe have not come close, in fact theirs are rising.

We also export a lot of our emissions.

What complete dreck.

Murica has cleaned up more of its own backyard than the rest of the world combined.
