I wonder how employees working at the New Yorker would react if someone undertook a campaign of "intelligent sabotage" against them.

"Journalism is not a crime", they say.

That's exactly the problem. It should be.

This. Journalism doesn't even exist on the left. It's all lies/propaganda, and it's overt too; they make no attempt to hide it.

Yup. The "journalists" these days are entirely on the side of the gov and corporations and just read out premade talking points.

bad journalism makes issue worse, but Arrow's theorem never went anywhere.

This isn't even new shit. Environmentalists of the last century loved doing shit like that. Edward Abbey, one of the most famous environmentalists, literally inspired the term "monkeywrenching" in 1975, which inspired groups like Earth First to start staking trees (which killed and maimed a bunch of people).

As always, their "radical solutions" are never clever or original. Its just angry idiots mirroring other angry idiots of the past who they didn't know about because those methods failed last time too.

Let me tell you about one ecoteorrist who went into the woods, made his own cabin, sent bombs to scientists and computer techs, and even forced the newspapers to publish his manifesto

I can respect Uncle Ted because he truly lived the life. Didn't half ass it or have incredible contradictions over dumb shit. Just straight up off the grid, in a cabin with little contact with the world until they fucked with his nature.

Unlike the hero Abbey up there who cries about how he could never kill a single animal ever, except for rabbits he sometimes shoots with rocks just to know what it feels like.

Remember that time when a psychotic jewish "environmentalist" launched five Soviet RPGs at a nuke plant in France, called it a "nonviolent protest" (I'm not joking), and proceeded to brag about it while the authorities didn't do anything about it? That was fun.

And that's how you get people who disagree with you to start setting forest fires to spite you.

They should start with the obscenely large server farms used by adtech / social media cartels.

These are non essential mega corporations with gigantic carbon footprints.
