“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Jared Diamond, You Are Officially DONE

 First you even consented to being on British Pravda aka the BBC, as a propaganda stooge, without realizing it. Or maybe you did. You went on PM, one of the more stupid BBC Radio 4 news shows. A show on which Megyn Kelly had appeared, defending the indefensible, the speech by the ex-President that even made Stephen Colbert weep, genuinely actually weep, the next day, because he saw it for what is was, a coup attempt. You went on that show, two nights ago. 

Then you served their purposes by saying "If anyone predicted that the coronavirus wouldn't be over until July 2021, they were lying." In fact you said if anyone made any predictions, they would be lying. 


A while back lol Einstein predicted the shape of gravity waves. Then in 2015 they were discovered. They had the waveform Einstein predicted. That is what a scientist does. They predict stuff. 

We want them to. We need them to. We need not to have politicians spouting crap about get back to the plantation of neoliberalism, and we need journalists to pay attention and not go on and on and on about why can't we have Christmas. 

I predicted the coronavirus would last at least until July 2021. Look at my Twitter feed for last year. 

Every epidemiologist said, between one and four years. 

I'm never taking you seriously ever again Diamond. You've just spoken utter nonsense and you've been used as a pawn in the acephalic stupidity that is the BBC propaganda machine. 

PS: How can a prediction be a lie? Like, at all? It confounds logic.

Been speaking out against Jared Diamond ever since the indigenous peoples of Easter Island made it clear that it was colonialism that destroyed their landscape not their ancestors.

And I'll keep speaking out against Jared Diamond's misinformation and racist projections of all that's wrong with western civilization being blamed on "uncivilised" indigenous people who lived far more sustainably than he and his ilk ever has.

He's a hateful man more interested in using fake scientific research to justify his colonialist will to power no matter how harmful that desire for dominance becomes. Diamond's book Collapse is a racist fraud and so is he: https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/rethinking-easter-islands-historic-collapse/
