Stupidity is an eternal mystery

< A ruffled winter night happens to be of my interested in history, the son to end up in front of the National geographic's documentary on the first world war, ”the Apocalypse”.

the Cut from over 300 hours of filmed materials, as well as newsreels and private sector customer service, it makes for a spine-chilling testimony of human madness. In which case, the ghosts of the past: then the soldiers, when men travel to the front lines with the högsommarens one of the gevärsmynningarna; a year later, the same men, only this time with an amputated leg in the skyttegravarnas clay, barnliken in the bombed-out French village. Bottom line: of the 27 million dead in just four years.

the question that I ask myself, probably for the hundredth time, why is it in human reason has so clearly any limitations? If it's to early 1900-century the european leaders were able to lead their peoples towards extinction, how can we hope to be able to deliver the radical measures needed in order to prevent a total global climate catastrophe?

That is, I realize, while I'm reading, like the book of mormon, which I have attended, and have been yearning for.

In the book ”Heat treatment” allows the researchers to Daniel Lindvall , Kjell Vowles , Martin Hultman - a deep dive into the phenomenon of klimatförnekelse is seen as a political move. That is, I realize, while I'm reading, like the book of mormon, which I have attended, and have been yearning for. Here are our era's most important issues, democracy and climate change in relation to each other. The authors show how the power of the energy sources (coal mines, oil fields) since the end of industrialism's childhood, have led to political power. As the british miners, and so long as coal was the backbone of the country's economy, a guide to the development of democracy through trade unions and the Labour party, and the oljediktaturer such as saudi Arabia, and the mighty ägarfamiljer as oljebröderna Koch, to control the political agenda towards a reduction in democracy and a greater klimatförnekelse, because their economic survival depends on whether they manage to thwart an international agreement on climate change.

But even in the relatively climate conscious Sweden, democracy has been able to deliver hope, in the way it did in the period after the two world wars. The threat, real or perceived, of terrorism, of crime, and concerns about increased immigration, and the recession has led to a sense of insecurity, who are exploited politically. Samhällsoron is the most important reason to be xenophobic, authoritarian nationalist political parties have been established and have grown in strength in Europe as a whole. In Sweden, one of the parties to be the parliament in the world.

From the start, was it after all, as soon as an opponent of the coal industry.

So, rather than vote in favour of the parties arising out of the environmental movement, it turns out, people are in to right-wing populists, who, in many cases, also, are 'climate change deniers'. Which, in and of itself, may seem like a paradox. From the start, was it after all, as soon as an opponent of the coal industry, and the natural romanticism flourished. The Swedish national anthem was written in, for example, by Richard Dybeck for an overwhelming stay in the mountains, Städjan in the region.

dedicated To people who long to go back to the safe industriarbetena of the People, rather than the old Bondesverige, has the nature, not an end in itself. The sweden democrats were the only party in parliament who did not vote for the Swedish climate objective, and also they are the only ones to oppose the signing of the paris peace agreement. After the severe drought of the summer of the year 2018 using the Jimmie ã ... kesson in its sommartal to dismiss the klimatoron and he said that it was irresponsible to ”make the policies of of how the weather looks in a single summer.”

It can be argued, and it makes the writers of ”Heat”, in order to escape from the democracy of which we are seeing across the western world, at the same time, is an escape from the issue of climate change. Maybe it's because of the global heating so far has been an insidious progression. Compared with tangible threats, such as growing income inequality (it is so large now, that is, before the first world war), bensinskatter on low-income groups and increasing unemployment in some sectors, it is right for them. And besides, a bird in the hand is better than two in the bush?

Right now, it seems as though the ”Things” can very well be the title of a new documentary, this time one that is on the way to the planetkollaps. It all depends on whether or not we can fix two problems at the same time, the rising of the oceans, and the decline in well-being.

then and Only then is it possible to believe that we have the sense that this time be able to transcend our evolutionary limitations. We have to save democracy, which is just another way of saying that we need to save us from ourselves.
