Agitprop: The rich destroy the planet

28

An authoritative publication Nature has published material that examines the situation with the influence on the planet from humanity. The authors of the study come to a very obvious conclusion: the wealthiest sections of the population have the greatest impact on the planet, on the surrounding world. The magazine indicates that it is consumption, wealth that is the very driver of environmental impact.


In Konstantin Semin’s Agitprop program, thought develops to the categorical statement that “the rich destroy the planet.”

Semin:

This is not just another abstruse statement by environmentalists concerned about global warming or the deforestation. An attempt is made to indicate the root of the problem.

The fact that it is the well-to-do strata of the population that have a greater influence on what is happening on the planet, including the environmental situation, is quite obvious. Operating plants, mining, technological disasters, emissions.

But only the problem is too deep to be reduced to the indicated plane. The work of the same factories means jobs for ordinary, ordinary citizens; mining is also means to the budgets, from which then social benefits are paid.

Another question is that big business most often responsibly approaches only its own profit and is completely irresponsible before it exploits the environment. One example is the famous episode in Norilsk, when thousands of tons of fuel flooded the vast territories of the Russian North.

      Impunity and corruption, plus a thirst for unlimited enrichment .. These are the reasons why this happens .. The environment is terrible, hence all the troubles, including oncology ..

        Well, let’s say the river in my small Motherland was first completely destroyed by the Soviet timber industry enterprises with a mole alloy of the forest. Then they finished off the runoff from the pig farm.

    The fact that the bourgeoisie devour this planet is no news for a long time .. Capitalism has repeatedly proved its bestial nature, including in our country. And only a return to socialism will give us a chance for survival and a better future ..

    Everything is interconnected in this world!
    We are all still responsible for everything that happens to the planet !!!
    Nobody could harm our ecosystem in such a way if everyone else were sharply against it, not in words but in deeds. Alas, alas, we, the majority, are each for themselves, i.e., for nothing, in the end !!!

    It was as if there were no oil spills in the USSR, nor any contamination of the area where this oil was produced. There were no harmful emissions at industrial enterprises, there were no toxic effluents into water bodies (one Baikal PPM was worth what). There were no flooding of thousands of square kilometers of the area with a change in ecology during the construction of hydroelectric power stations. There were neither Chernobyl nor Kyshtym disasters. Thank God they did not manage to turn the Siberian rivers to the south.

      Apparently the properties of human memory - socialist reality with all both positive and negative properties is gradually being replaced by "invented socialism" (well, it is clear, in youth and the sun shone brighter))) in which there were no negative qualities at all. In which there was no Arctic area littered with barrels and scrap metal, clear felling of timber, molten alloy, "dead earth" in Karabash and around the mass of other oil, chemical, metallurgical enterprises. Mehdvors flooded with oil and cluttered with abandoned equipment in villages, etc. etc.

        It was alas, the person is indifferent to indifference and shortsightedness. In any socio-political formation. In general, the technogenic path of development of extreme civilization is erroneous.

    Even I don’t understand what the rich have to do with it? Or does someone want to say that one Rolls-Royce consumes more fuel than thousands of Solaris or endless lines of public transport?
    Or is one big bourgeois eating up thousands of herds of pigs and chickens?

    The most interesting thing is that in reality the biggest environmental pollution comes from India, China, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Egypt, Congo ... That is, countries that you can’t name rich at all.

      You can’t call the countries rich, here you have to ask another question - who do people in these countries work for and who bring profit? And the products that are produced there are mostly consumed in the West, i.e. production waste remains in poor countries and finished products go west, to rich countries. Yes, and obsolete household appliances and garbage are also largely transported to the countries you have listed for recycling. You somehow superficially approach a question ...

        Yes, actually not. Poor countries produce cheap low-quality goods that diverge in the same poor countries with low living standards, where most of the world's population lives. The same goods that reach rich countries go for processing at these enterprises, and the more developed the country, the more waste it will recycle. Some European countries do IMPORT garbage for recycling. And about the predatory deforestation, the destruction of wild animals and killer agriculture for the soil, I generally am silent. The best example is Korea and the DPRK. In the South, the number of forests is growing, but the country also produces food for export (I periodically buy Korean rice noodles), and the impoverished North of the forest has much less, but there is not enough food there.

    “Capital avoids noise and abuse and has a fearful nature.” This is true, but it is not the whole truth. Capital fears a lack of profit or too little profit, as nature fears emptiness. But once there is sufficient profit, capital becomes bold. 10 percent, and capital agrees to any application, at 20 percent it becomes animated, at 50 percent it is positively ready to break its head, at 100 percent it violates all human laws, at 300 percent there is no crime that it would not risk, although would be on pain of the gallows. Proof: smuggling and slave trade. "

    Konstantin constantly and consistently points to one and the same idea, to one and the same indispensable sign of capitalism: the privatization of profit with the nationalization of losses.
    Nature, concern for its conservation in this case is the nationalization of losses.
    As long as nature belongs to everyone, it is the rich who will exploit it as mercilessly as those who are forced to earn their daily bread by selling their ability to work.

    Not only Norilsk ...

    Look at what is happening with Baikal now, soon there’s no need to drink water from there ....
    Moscow is trying to push its waste to its neighbors ...
    Taiga near China is balding right before our eyes ...

    But we have the "great Putin" and his loyal and unsinkable "accomplices"! No. recourse sad
    Here we have a fortune ... negative

    It seems that soon the word "rich" will be synonymous with "enemy of the people."
