Distraction Tactics
by Steve Bolter

14 Mar 2020

While counter terrorism police waste their time investigating known Extinction Rebellion supporters and school strikers reported by their teachers, the real terrorists travel into the heart of London, mingling unnoticed with ordinary commuters on buses trains and tubes. They wear no badges and carry no placards. They do not have suicide belts spoiling the shape of their smart jackets. These hidden terrorists spend their days working for the breakdown of society, by investing people's savings into the fossil fuel industry. The "terror" of the risk of one's bus being diverted because of a crowd of school strikers demonstrating for action to slow climate change, or a few extremists padlocking themselves together or gluing themselves to things; is a minor and short lived "terror". The terror of advancing climate disruption bringing drought, fire, flood and crop failure, with the resultant starvation, mass-migration, and wars over water and food; is a real, intense and ever-pervasive terror.
