organized greed always defeats disorganized democracy
Yeah, I have no freakin' idea what I'm talking about when I say that "reparations" is a racist code word in the US, whose meaning is taken, and whose use is unproductive. Not a clue.Have you ever even talked to anyone who's lived or worked in the South, or spent any time studying the extremist right wing of US politics?
huh? What happened there? did I blink?
Sorry, Weggis (why am I apologising to you so much lately? I suck!) I'm still in the process of editing my response.
Natasha, thank you for your comment. I am happy to see my position reinforced. Despite my quite pointed comment you do not seem to appreciate that USA politics has consequences beyond its own borders. The failure of your domestic agenda to capture language to your satisfaction may influence the wellbeing of thousands of people in your own country. However, it makes no difference whatsoever to the millions of people who are likely to lose their homes in the coming decades to climate change- partly because your government's representatives consider certain globally neutral terminology to be politically unpalatable at the domestic scale. It is particularly ironic that those who will suffer include many inhabitants of the USA. Although, of course, your own country will be far better placed to help its citizens cope, if it so chooses. It might help you to understand my position by imagining Hurricane Katrina occurring on an annual basis from about 2050.PS
Try "Preview". It does exactly what it says on the tin.
For some reason I am incapable of objectively appraising what I have written until I've pressed the "post" button. Hence the multiple re-posts.
