Flying Peasants

This morning I was reading this article in The Daily Sceptic about “Net Zero” and possibly no more flying for peasants by 2050, and it occurred to me yet again that this wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing.
I’m not at all sure that endless credit and foreign travel has really improved our peasant lives at all, probably the opposite, and it’s likely inevitable that it will have to end when the sham financial system that supports such a lifestyle ends, and that’s looking like soon.
The problem is that at the same time, the same people are (and have been for more than half a century) merrily destroying our native environments and social bonds, which at least would give us some roots to return to.

Fuchs-Eier und Schaumwein“, Marwitz hatte Recht.
