And So It Goes…#806


I did originally think it a spoof. Some sort of meta-modernist work of installation art.But I guess on reflection, Black Lives Matter were being serious. They staged a sit-down protest on the runway at London City Airport.The following gleaned from The Sun online :-

They ( BLM ) wrote: “Climate crisis is a racist crisis. 7/10 of the countries most affected by climate change are in sub-Saharan Africa.”

“The UK is the biggest per-capita contributor to temperature change & among the least vulnerable to its affects.

“At London City airport a small elite is able to fly, in 2016 alone 3,176 migrants have died or gone missing in the Mediterranean #Shutdown.

“By 2050 there will be 200 million climate refugees. Black people are the first to die, not the first to fly, in this racist climate crisis.”

Ultra-left diehards will find this very much to their particular ideological tastes. Reductionism, I believe its called. Everything in life and society in general,every kind of social phenomena can be subjected to a quasi-forensic analysis using a Marxist-Leninist ideological frame of reference. Political Correctness (PC) was incubated in the pseudo-Marxian womb and we all know what utterly devastating consequences that has wreaked on an unsuspecting and naive world. Branding the contentious notion of ” Climate change ” with an equally contentious notion of ” racism ” really is ideological alchemy. Marxism as thaumaturgy.
