    Slavery and Fossil Fuels

    The Founders inherited slavery, thought it was evil but would eventually wither away, and accommodated to it in order to break away from England. They “accepted” its benefits and its evil for what they considered a more pressing good.

    We the woke have inherited fossil fuels, cell phones, T-shirts made in foreign sweat shops and the like. We think fossil fuel is evil and will eventually wither away. We accommodate to it and enjoy its benefits while knowing that we are destroying the earth and ending humanity.

    Who gets to cast the first stone?

    The factories aren’t sweatshops anymore because they can afford air conditioning. Probably it’s the equivalent of being in a factory in the 1920s in America or maybe even later. Were factories considered abominations against mankind then?Additionally, I would argue that factories encourage free labor.

    (I know that this is a diversion but I feel that sweatshops are serially misunderstood.)

    My folks live in a rural area of Texas, a little more than an hour away from one of the big cities. For the last decade land values have been driven up by people buying acreage for retirement or for weekend getaways. The activity around that has jumped dramatically in the last 2 months. It’s people wanting to get out of the cities, mostly Texas cities and not the coasts. It’s probably still mostly retirees and weekenders, but maybe there will be some young middle class families.
