ArchDruidReport John Michael Greer's Hypocrisy and Paranoid Silencing of Critics
Most activists dilute their message to get a big fan club, so they focus on recruiting Milgram's 92%, game theory's conditional co-operators and free riders. I an an issue specific unconditional co-operator, and I search for other eight percenter: issue specific unconditional co-operators. I don't care if your name is Anders Breivik, or Tom Laaman, if you ideologically are left wing, right wing, nazi wing, commie wing, if you are capable of making an issue specific unconditional co-ooperator agreement, you are worth talking to, and worth negotiating with. In the absence of sincere and active listening and brutal honesty discussion, any beliefs about agreement or disagreement are self-delusional bullshit.

John Michael Greer blogs at The Archdruid Report. where he blogs about "Druid perspectives on nature, culture, and the future of industrial society." He is also the Grand Archdruid of the Ancient Order of Druids in America and the author of more than twenty books on a wide range of subjects, including The Long Descent: A User's Guide to the End of the Industrial Age, The Ecotechnic Future: Exploring a Post-Peak World, and The Wealth of Nature: Economics As If Survival Mattered.
A few days ago he wrote a post The Pleasures of Extinction; wherein he lambastes people who believe that climate change has embarked on such a runaway feedback loop, that it is going to result in the near term extinction (NTE) of human life on planet earth.
As far as I am aware the person who coined the term 'near term extinction' with the acronym of NTE is Dr. Guy McPherson. His first post about it, I can find was posted to Zero Hedge: Three paths to near term extinction. If you do a google search on the term "near term extinction, nte" the top hit is Dr. McPherson's blog: Nature Bats Last, where his detailed post explaining the evidence for his argument of near term extinction is: Climate Change Summary and Update.
