In Defense of Annihilation

It’s clear that as a species, we need the ideas of climate crisis, and global economic and political collapse.

We live in an incredibly polarized, emotionally and psychologically awkward moment in our history. We must consciously transcend this folly to propel ourselves — our remarkable human species — onward and upward.
