I do care though and, as a species in the process of killing itself, it seems epically stupid to take actions like this. The upside is that maybe if NATO is serious about sanctions this will rapidly move Europe away from gas powered vehicles.
We come here in search of a place to express our thoughts outside of the direct control and surveillance of unaccountable, mega-corporations. There is no common theme that binds us other than these being the bonds we've chosen rather than those that have been chosen for us.
