    promoters of climate denial. I hope he has nightmares 24/7.

      ... a "religious conversion" or an aneurysm.  The latter "isn't nice," but natural causes are not violence, and that man is in the top ten as far as harm to the world is concerned.

      We got the future back. Uh-oh.

        for saying the SCOTUS is only one heart attack away from sanity, or something like that.

        I have gotten away with saying "May the Lord take him soon". I suppose religiosity makes everything nicer.

        Anyway, if Murdoch get a "religious conversion" I hope it comes from Thor.

          Natural causes are not violence, wishes don't have magical power, and reality-based communities do not believe in magic.  

          The place I would draw the line is at incitement.

          And another place to draw another line is when it comes to the threat of human extinction, about which we are presently being warned by climate scientists.  Hitler was responsible for approx. 10 million deaths in the Holocaust.  Extinction is 700 times that, and the E-N-D of the human species.  Whatever means were justified in dealing with Hitler and the Nazis, are also justified in dealing with those who profiteer from the climate catastrophe and foist it upon us through denialism and obstructionism.

          We got the future back. Uh-oh.

            who called on his congregation to kill Jews and was merely deported. Fuck that, put they guy in jail. He's just one more piece of our clusterfuck. Put him in a cell next to Netanyahu.

            As hard as it is, though, to marginalize those who incite and promote killing, it's even harder to imagine marginalizing the power of money to motivate people to kill everyone and everything.

            Other economic systems were replaced by more efficient ones (not that I'm an economist), but capitalism is terminally efficient, and will have to be overcome by long-term thinking and wisdom. Which I don't see happening in the near term without, let's say, earth-saving behaviors with which I would not quarrel.
