They’ve shaped the world to their ends by secretly and surreptitiously eroding our values, our relationship to each other and to the world. We’ve given them consent to plunder the world on the off chance that we could, too. We are now very much like the 1%; suspicious of our peers, vain, seduced by consumer goods and the allure of ‘luxury’. We also now celebrate the humiliation, destruction and failure of others for the small puff of wind it puts in our sails. They’ve made us okay with an industry of mass murder for profit and the almost complete destruction of our ecosystem and economy. #WorldBeFee Click To Tweet
But they, unlike you, won’t suffer the consequences of their actions. Unlike you, they’ll have every benefit money can buy to soften the shocks of climate change or any disaster you’ll face. In fact, your suffering will subsidize their escape. Your children, should they live, won’t have a place in this world except how it might profit the 1%. Are you okay with this? It’s happening right before your eyes.
This cartoon was inspired by an article that Rainer Shea wrote titled “Capitalist Totalitarianism Has a Plan to Dominate the Anthropocene“.
