with his 157 Billion
feels free to
Destroy the Earth
BEZOS admits that limitless growth—the growth that made him the richest man in the world—is incompatible with a habitable earth.
But instead of announcing investments in renewable energy or public infrastructure, Bezos pitches an escape from earth.
HE WANTS TO THROW YOU OFF THE EARTH – HE AND HIS MONEY GETS TO STAY.
His whole focus towards the reality of capitalism, climate change, and the intractable connections between those two things is to make more money by planning the great escape from earth !!!!!
Bezos admits that the limitless growth that made him the world’s richest man is incompatible with a habitable Earth.
Bezos argues that a capitalist logic of endless growth is the way to save the Earth from poverty, homelessness, and environmental catastrophe. (Bezos does not say “climate change” or “global warming” but “pollution.”) However, capitalism is an economic system that is inextricably tied with colonial history, enslaving people and exploiting laborers, and extracting and stripping as much away from the Earth as possible in order to fuel growth. Capitalism is not the solution to the problems that Bezos describes. It’s the root of the problem.
