This is (was*) a blog largely about left-wing politics, and how the modern Western way of life is morally, culturally, economically and, above all, ecologically terrible. We live to planet-busting excess. We do nothing while billions suffer and millions starve. And there’s only one real, lasting solution to both problems — using the grotesque wealth of one bit of the world to alleviate the suffering of the other. Shrinking our needlessly massive economies, jettisoning the industries, goods and services that don’t meet genuine human needs — and declaring Year Zero on a newly levelled playing field, then bringing security, stability and comfort to everyone alive.
*up until about July 2017, this was a blog aimed at other people. Now, it’s a bucket to empty my head into.
