The words of Voltaire helped inspire this author to persist through decades to understand the real problems we share and to develop strategies and tactics to address them. May they serve you as well.
"No problem can withstand the assult of sustained thinking"
The magnitude, complexity and horrific implications of our present crisis is part of the problem. If we find the courage and time to face the problems we have, we find that there are a variety of issues that we must simultaneously address because they are interconnected like a tangled knot. We won"t solve the climate/extinction crisis without political reforms. We won't get political reforms without an adequately informed public. We won't have an adequately informed public without media reforms. We won"t have media reforms without political reforms. We won't have political reforms without cultural reforms. We won't have cultural reforms without spiritual awakenings.....and on and on it goes.
This is why Integrative Activism is dedicated to creating and implementing a more comprehensive form of activism.

TheSixthExtinction which hosts a discussion board, The Center for Biodiversity is working to educate the people as well as action bioscience and there's a good YouTube video about it. Paul Ehrlich warns us and most of the corporate "news" sources have published something about it, but the sixth mass extinction remains the most important and under-reported story of our times. A collapse of the food chain will cause a collapse of civilization and human population which will likely happen within your grandchildren's lives as we pass tipping points in the climate crisis.

Climate Crisis - really? there's so much credible evidence that we have a climate crisis and are crossing tipping points creating positive feedback loops that it's a waste of time and energy to address it here. If you don't know about it please learn! If you are a science denier then get off the f*@king computer you damn hypocrite, stop using electricity and join the Amish who are among the few conservatives with any real integrity!
Political Corruption in the USA - is greatly contributing to the demise of the biosphere. The Presidential campaigns of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders attest to the public's distrust of establishment politics and big monied campaigns. There's voter suppression, hackable voting machines, revolving doors
