I’ve seen this story making the rounds for a few days now.
Scientists endorse mass civil disobedience to force climate action
and I wonder why scientists take direct action by refusing to work on all the things they are working on until they get what they want doesn’t necessarily have to be en masse, at the same time. one week they stop searching for a cure for cancer, the next week they stop studying the universe, etc. etc just keep escalating
spread it into other professions. doctors, engineers, teachers, lawyers…
all of a sudden, shit got real
you don’t have to be a professional fuck shit upper to understand the impact of the strategy
in the 80s there were all sorts of professional orgs campaigning against the escalating nuclear arms race. physicians for social responsibility, science for peace, whores against wars (seriously, whores against wars. they used to march in the Vancouver peace march) every year
so, if this really is the beginning of the end of the world, why not do it again?
