Re: Fine them
Freedom is pointless when the safety of everyone is at risk from environmental catastrophes, driven by capitalism.
Two points amongst all the hysteria.
Climate change isn't caused by capitalism. Climate change is caused by people's natural desire to make their lives better for themselves and their families. Capitalism is just part of the way that the most successful states in history organise their economies. With a few changes of incentives free market capitalism can be (and in fact is being) harnessed to make technology that is less harmful to the environment.
Other types of societies, from hunter-gatherers to communist empires, like the Soviet Union have done devastating enviromental damage to themselves - basically because people want stuff.
Also destroying peoples' freedom now is incredibly dangerous to those people right now. Whereas climate change is dangerous to them in the future. Which also changes priorities to, for example, defending that freedom now and worrying about future stuff later.
Addressing climate change is important. And, it should be pointed out, is happening. Lots of improvements are being made. But it won't be solved tomorrow, or the next day. And it will be harder to do if people think the ones suggesting it needs dealing with are dangerous lunatics who want to lock up the people who disagree with them.
