2. Humans are destroying the planet and with it, themselves. They refuse to vote

and refuse to vote intelligently. In fact in cult circles, intelligence is seen as elitism and shunned via shit like Fox "News", which IMO should be outlawed and taken off the air, relegated to the underground due to the ignorance it promotes.

Humans are stupid collectively. They are easily led and misled. And they are possessed by mob mentality. Someone posted this yesterday and it's a good read. Sadly, until people learn to vote and vote INTELLIGENTLY, we're doomed. To cap that, we're just doomed. Nobody should be having children now. They won't survive.

"Populism is the act of politicising and mobilising ignorance to the point of political and moral insanity. Nationalism as we know, comes from the phenomena of nation-states – and it’s quite ironic therefore that we are now talking more and more about the failure of nation states and the failure of supranational and international institutions as well… and meanwhile neo-nationalism is on the rise.

It’s not about the maturity of your democracy, it’s not about the strength of your institutions either…. Once the cancer of authoritarianism gets into the veins and organs of society, it’s not easy to get-out – they have this very specific way of paralysing political mechanisms and dismantling the fundamental human logic.
