Hopefully the November elections will make a big difference. But long term, the problem is much larger. Religions exist because people need something to believe in.
“When people stop believing in God, they don’t believe in nothing — they believe in anything.“ – GK Chesterton
Global climate disruption has taken on the status of a full religion. Every weather event is now interpreted as a sign that the gods are displeased with mankind’s behaviour. 10/10 is now making human sacrifices. The entire movement wants to pay tax penance for their sins.
Superstitious religions survive for thousands of years, without any basis in fact. Believers will grasp at anything which fulfills their immediate psychological needs.
You can’t win this battle intellectually. You just need to make sure that the people running governments are not mentally ill.
