It’s never good to hear the words “total societal collapse” from a scholarly paper, but that’s exactly the phrasing used in the new UN climate report.

The oligarchs don’t seem to be inclined to slow the runaway, extractive capitalism we have had to endure along with the enormous power they have obtained over the past four or five decades. The 1971 Powell Memo charted the way. Then Reagan came along to show how to implement the directives therein.
