  •  No we will end it more slowly as we (5+ / 0-)

    ignore what we are doing to foul our nest.

    An idea is not responsible for who happens to be carrying it at the moment. It stands or falls on its own merits.

      The GOP is fouling it, sure, but the more they foul it the more noticeable it becomes to the population.

        Noticeable?  you have noticed
        Poisoning the water
        Ruining the soil
        Producing substandard poisoned food
        Depleting resources
        Decaying infrastructure
        Gun violence
        Killing kids with drones
        Climate change
        Exploitation of workers
        Degradadation of the quality of education
        and plenty more

        So we will all watch as the world ends?  It surely will be even more noticeable as it goes on.

          And yes, you're right. Those are things we need to address as well, because their deny-the-truth worldview is a large part of the problem. But that wasn't clear to me from your original response, and it's a wider scope than I'm prepared to deal with in this diary.

          moment still awaits them;  until then, they CAN'T SEE IT..

          But the REST OF US CAN, so it's up to us.  We need to stop trying to talk them out of their entrenchment and GET BUSY.

          Sorry about all the caps...I get worked up....
