In the last couple of weeks, I found it hard to focus. It has been increasingly difficult for me to juggle all my activities. And I found myself lacking time to practice self-care. If my therapy sessions have brought me to one conclusion, it is that this is a warning sign.
Until now, we westerners have relied on an assumption. Western countries will not suffer too much from the effects of climate change. That assumption is wrong. I believed it as well. After all, we have so many possibilities, that other countries don’t have. We have enormous wealth we stole from our former colonies.
You know that this attack on Press Freedom is real. What you also know is that Assange will never face a fair trial. You know that western leaders and pundits tried to shut up about it.
People buy plenty of cars. Not necessarily out of need. But because we bought into the idea of owning a car. It is a symbol of freedom and self-realization.
Electric Vehicles will not change that.
It likely has not escaped anyone’s attention. Fuel prices have taken a sharp turn upwards recently. In Germany, you can rarely get any fuel for less than 2 Euros per liter anywhere. The sanctions on Russia are restricting supply.
However, Fossil fuel might do a bit of price gouging as well.
If you are in doubt, whether fossil fuel companies were playing dirty, the proof came this week.
What happens, if I get booted off the platform? It is not an impossible scenario. Writers who write about social and political issues easily can get on the wrong side of people, and platform algorithms. We have seen this plenty of times on Social Media platforms.
I should give our government a bit of praise for a change. The 9-Euro ticket is a very good initiative. The Sanctions on Russia give fossil fuel companies a windfall. Their profits are soaring. Meanwhile, many citizens cannot shoulder the burden of increased transport costs.
Last year, the citizens of Berlin voted to re-socialize housing. The current Berlin Government is determined to obstruct the will of the people.
