the US stepped backward into the civil war…//The Scale of the Problem

To propose a comparison with abolition and the Civil War and then in the name of non-violence is perhaps the only venue of discussion but the indication indirectly by pointing to the era of Lincoln is a warning of what is coming. We should note that at first noone sat down and proposed a war on abolition: the US stepped backward into the violent outcome.

We may be witnessing the first stirrings of a climate movement that’s big enough to tackle the coming disaster — and radical enough to name the system responsible for it.
