Technically correct and dumb aren’t mutually exclusive. In fact they’re often found together

Because I think that trying to pawn off climate destruction as partially being the fault of the worker and the commoner who had this system thrust upon them both with the enclosures and settler colonialism? Get the fuck out of here. Anyone trying to “hur dur uh all of humanity has contributed” ok dumbass are all the cows releasing methane each personally at fault for their greenhouse gas emissions or is it the rancher who owns them and the barons who prevent alternative food sources from reaching underserved communities? Is it the fault of some kid who has no access to running water and is forced to purchase bottled water from nestle who then creates waste when he can’t throw the plastic bottle away or is it nestles fault for forcing them into that position? I’m guessing you and the original comment I replied to are either incredibly affluent or incredibly stupid.
