It’s a bloody play. Many chess players are concentrating, with very high IQ and very low empathy, and ultimately suicidal because all those PHDs in political science, and not just from Harvard and Lomonosov, must know that it’s getting hot and that if every animal is disappearing, so will we.
So what is the grand plan? It just can’t be regional. Not just for more money when you’re eighty. What then? Cabal of few fearful of zombies at the gate demanding water and air? Aliens among us terraforming? Visualization of old poetry in the service of War on Alchemy? For the advancement of Anarchy? Culling by the billion in the Low Countries?
I don’t buy stupidity. The deft hands that fan the coals of hatred do so with much dexterity.
