C4 is a DCMS production.

They should have opened the ad with Meghan and Harry flying from California to Las Vegas and back on a private jet just to attend a Katy Perry concert.

Yes. I cant speak to these latest ones but very often they come from well-to-do families. Families who could actually afford to give them a better education.

But they grew up .in a comfortable environment where a real education didn’t matter. You already know the subjects they took at college. Subjects short on numbers, facts, and rigorous thinking, but long on opinions and feelings.

Viscerally, I agree with you. Intellectually, I know that these kids are actually being well provided for, they were trained for this, and it is their actual career, destroying “Western” civilisation in the name of some crackpot nonsense or another.
These kids are not from the créme de la créme, you understand, just well off enough to know the value of Networking and Being Seen, educated in the ‘soft sciences’ and business, where they are taught the benefits of going along to get along, and, most importantly, the importance of doing as expected, and deploring the useless eaters.
Unless you are willing to walk up to them for some personal ridicule, don’t dismiss them as crackpots, they are doing a very will-paid job.
Whom for?

“The improbably named public-school boys and girls who swell the ranks of environmental activism are not only wildly unrepresentative of ordinary people (soup-throwing Just Stop Oil poster girl Phoebe Plummer reportedly went to a school that costs £45,000 a year)”

The rise of Extinction Rebellion and Just Stop Oil reminds us how thoroughly protest has been colonised by the middle classes. Protest was once the means through which the ignored masses made their presence felt and feelings clear. Now, from those big Remoaner demos against Brexit to the JSO slow marches today, it is the means through which the well-connected and comfortably off give vent to their curious preoccupations and rail against the supposed idiocy of the rest of us. 

Like the religion of violence, there is no reasoning with the upset upper classes.

Julian ‘Roger’ Hallam was an organic farmer whose business failed. Who or what to blame for the failure? The gods?

“UK governments have failed to support organic farming, says report”

…the Netherlands, France, Sweden, Italy, Germany and Austria, governments explicitly support organic. They provide more support in payments to organic farmers

But Hallam doesn’t blame the economics, oh no, he attributes the destruction of his business to a series of extreme weather events (in… Wales!!!!). So, what did he do then? For a PhD he began researching how to achieve social change through civil disobedience and radical movements.

His one success was connecting with all those afflicted by the new social disease of climate anxiety. The efforts of education and the media have not been entirely in vain. They’ve been taught they have no future. Following Hallam’s lead will guarantee that. That’s where the [family] money comes in.

The modern aristocracy has raised a bunch of mindless twits and twats by sending their offspring to expensive schools run by fervent neo-Marxists! Most of the current protests of various kinds are largely upper- and upper middle-class phenomena with some poor invited in for extra flavor! These children-of-privilege have mostly never experienced any difficulties in their lives except in their fevered, infantile imaginations!

Hallam’s a cult leader with a coterie of followers willing to support him and his partner (who’s about the same age as Hallam’s daughter, Savannah) in a nice lovenest in London. It’s about time they were held to proper account for their actions and rhetoric which have all the hallmarks of a domestic terrorist organisation.

Reminds me of the WEIRD data problem.

“In 2010, a paper by Henrich et al. coined the term WEIRD to describe a lack of diversity in research. WEIRD stands for Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich, and Democratic.”

which is a form of

“Selection bias – Catalog of Bias – occurs when individuals or groups in a study differ systematically from the population of interest leading to a systematic error in an association or outcome.”

I’m guessing those Just Stop Oil actors were actually type-cast. Why don’t witnesses to these types of events take justice into their own hands? Life is full of choices.

Most of the bystanders to the JSO grandstanders still believe in quaint concepts like rule of law, private property and freedom of speech. They see the protesters as being within their rights; complete idiots exercising rights that they don’t personally believe in!

Nope standing by uselessly while someone destroys or vandalizes property, public or private, is not okay.

I didn’t make it to the end of the video. Was there a disclaimer that stated that no tomato sauce was harmed during the making of that film?

Oh no, what about the tomato sauce!!?

The only reason that the one on the left is there, is so that he can ‘shtup’ the one on the right, and she’s there to be ‘shtupped’. Just like the Greenpeace naifs.

Comedy is always one of the first casualties in the war between Freedom and totalitarianism! We can see these battles playing out right here in the present as the various Marxist mind viruses, like DIE, ESG, and JSO try to further infect the body politic!
Humor can skewer the pompous, the arrogant and the ignorant; and NOTHING angers them as much as being laughed at! Those on the sidelines and in the stands will make up their minds based on what they see; so keep your facts straight and add extra barbs and hooks in your retorts! That is all!

I’m in hospital at the moment, and the amount of plastics, both structural and packaging is enormous. Fair enough, the packaging could be replaced by paper at the expense of nurse’s time and effort), but the beds, etc., I don’t think so.

Of course even this comedy relies on search results as a source of truth. It was done for convenience, but that’s the point. Google owns truth now.

Don’t know if cooking oil emits CO2 when it is used to cook food, but the video is still funny anyway.

There’s a rumor circulating that these clowns are bringing their song&dance routine to COP 28. I hope they bring enough soup to throw in the faces of the delegates. Also, what time does their performance begin? After all, there has to be at least one worthwhile piece of entertainment at these affairs because there won’t be anything else of substance.
