Listen to the guy

An activist, in announcing his retreat from publishing, expresses some thoughts I am pondering since quite a few years.

"(1) Remain calm: Nothing is under control;
(2) I’ve never suggested giving up — whatever that means — for many reasons; and
(3) I’ve offered several paths worthy of pursuit, all within the realm of reason [...]

In short, I’ve given it my best shot. I’ve sacrificed my way of living, my means of making a living, and — most importantly — relationships with friends, co-workers, colleagues, and family. Unless I come to the prompt attention of the well-documented liars within the culture of insanity commonly referred to as “normal,” I have nothing substantive left to give [...]
I’m left with little to say and little energy with which to say it. The evidence I present is met by cries of “impossible” and “cherry picking,” not to mention the terror of the abyss when I remove all hope.
Opinions trump evidence in a culture gone mad. The populace cannot distinguish evidence from opinion when the dumbing down has succeeded. And we’re there.
Despite the serious blow to my ego, I’m admitting the insignificance of my impact beyond a few, exceptional individuals."
[Guy McPherson, 1 Sept 16]

Farewell, Guy. Time to allow yourself a little bit of happiness .
