    Yes, I’m 71 and when I was a kid, my folks had just fought and thankfully overcome the evils of World War II – Adolf Hitler and all.

    So under the comfort that my parents generation took action, and overcame, giving my generation a decent era – why an Earth can we not do the same and think and protect our offspring. The window is small, but still enough time to act to avoid the worst for out offspring. Every decent adult must understand this and act. Just as our parents did before us.

      Why? For many complex reasons, but in response to your post…because we are the complacent Germans now. We’ve never had the power they’ve made us believe we had, but now we’ve let the Reichstag fire scare us into letting the brownshirts within an inch of taking complete power. Kristallnacht has come–and continues–and we’ve done nothing. (Have you seen that just in the last few months the administration has started to blatantly flout the law and defy Congress? They did it once and nothing happened so now they know they can do it again. Once they do they’ll know they can ignore more laws and no one will stop them.)

      I’d love to find out what awareness there is in the climate movement about how close we are to iron fascism. How many understand that they don’t just have to oppose climate destruction but encroaching dictatorship as well, and that if we lose either struggle we lose both?

      I hope people took part in the strike today, and have plans to continue.

    I hope they’ll still have the right to vote at all
