These people - let's just be generous and call them that - thought they could get a utopia - by which they mean, absolute control of the earth for eternity - with three simple stories, carbon dioxide, racism and coronavirus. The system doesn't permit opposition that is not controlled, so they thought they had it in the bag, failing to form a proper estimation of the scale of their undertaking. Now everything's falling apart, and they just look like assholes.
It's becoming impossible to deny that we're entering a solar minimum, and that narrative is out. It will take some time, and Greta is still here, of course, but would they need to train a child actor, from a theatrical (and connected) family, to hector us with "How dare you!" if the facts were on their side? Does anyone still say "how dare you"? Is this kid the reincarnation of Bette Davis or Katherine Hepburn or something?
Wokeness and critical race theory is on its way out too. Again, it will take some time, but here's an interview worth hearing.
And the idiots in charge of the vaccines in the UK didn't take the precaution of making damn sure every prominent person got a placebo, and a BBC presenter has now died from the thing.
So the narratives are crumbling fast, maybe that's why we're hearing about aliens all of a sudden. They probably (surely) are going to pull desperation moves at this point. All they need to do is admit they were wrong, if only to themselves, and change course. But I'm not counting on their common sense.
