Extinction Rebellion: We Should All Take Psychedelics To Stop ‘Climate Change’

Very few in the British media are publishing this, because it would show that their support of the Extinction Rebellion nutters is nuts

Why this activist is calling for the mass ingestion of psychedelics

Gail Bradbrook, co-founder of the Extinction Rebellion political movement, has called for the mass ingestion of psychedelics to protest the criminalization of drugs.

“I would support a mass civil disobedience where we take medicine to tell the state that they have absolutely no right to control our consciousness and to define our spiritual practice,” said Bradbrook during Breaking Convention, a psychedelics conference that was recently held in London.

Named after the Anthropocene extinction — the current and on-going mass extinction event caused by human activity — Extinction Rebellion uses civil disobedience to draw attention to climate change and the loss of biodiversity. (snip)

Bradbrook emphasized that Extinction Rebellion isn’t in the business of promoting psychedelic drug use, but she has previously expressed that psychedelics were a powerful motivator for her to form the social movement. In an article she wrote for the journal Emerge, Bradbrook said “people on psychedelics report a deeply felt sense of peace, oneness and unity with the planet which has been shown to have a profound and enduring effect on the way they live their lives.”

The transformative power of psychedelics could be a way to encourage people to become more active in finding solutions to the climate crisis. “The causes of the crisis are political, economic, legal, and cultural systemic issues but underneath that are issues of human trauma, powerlessness, scarcity, and separation,” said Bradbrook at the convention. “The system resides within us and the psychedelic medicines are opportunities to help us shift our consciousness.”

Oh, you thought the nuttbaggery would end there? Uh uh. Because Matt Davis, writing this piece for Big Think, wonders if this would really work

There’s no denying that psychedelics have the potential to completely change people’s perspectives and behavior. In an interview with Big Think, author Michael Pollan explained psychedelics’ primary action in the brain, where they suppress the default mode network. “The brain is a hierarchical system and the default mode network appears to be at the top; it’s kind of the orchestra conductor or corporate executive,” explains Pollan. However, sometimes the default mode network can be excessively controlling and trap us in mental and behavioral habits. Pollen explains how:

“Many of the disorders that psychedelics appear to treat well are manifestations of a stuck brain, a brain that is locked in loops, a mind that’s telling itself destructive stories, like ‘I can’t get through the day without a cigarette. I’m unworthy of love. My work is shit.’ … And that relief from that dictator is exactly what some people need to free themselves from habits — mental habits and behavioral habits.”

This kind of reboot could, for example, be used to convince people that something can be done about climate change. Research has shown that psychedelics can reset the brain, snapping people out of depression, so maybe it can snap people out of hopelessness about the future. “If we have a tool for behavior change, that’s a huge deal,” said Pollan. “I mean, I know, having worked on food for many years, that changing people’s food habits as adults is almost impossible. We are creatures of habit in many, many ways.”

    The video, posted the same day the Democratic National Committee voted against letting the party’s 2020 presidential candidates debate climate change — a supposedly signature issue for the party — received more than 200,000 likes as of early Sunday.

    The DNC won’t let their candidate DEBATE CLIMATE CHANGE. I think we all know why that is. Because it will make the party look even more batshit crazy than it is. By the time the night is over the seas will be flooding the rocky mountains and lead will be boiling on the great plains.

    Meanwhile, Bernie will be scream cuss words and demanding THIS GOVERNMENT CAN PAY 18 TRILLION DOLLARS BACK……..lololol….like our government can pay anything back. We haven’t had but like 3 balanced budgets in 50 years.

    All you independents, dont be fooled. The left is insane. They will then lie their way to the middle and sound reasonable for the general election and then GO RIGHT BACK TO IMPEACHING TRUMP and declaring were all gonna die in 3 years if we don’t eliminate ALL YOUR JOBS and TAX the RIC and CORPORATIONS MINDLESSLY.

    NOTICE not a thing is being said about the Amazon rainforest burning out of control in Brazil by the MSM? Why is that do you suppose? I would reckon that bringing attention to the Rainforest and its destruction would get people to realizing that the main reason we have had a rapid rise in Co2 directly correlates to the destruction of the Rainforest around the globe. The MSM cant have that. The AGW crowd can’t have that. It would destroy their narrative that only the USA with its billions of dollars in grant money can save the world.

    Only the USA can save the world by destroying half of the businesses in America and eliminating Guns and letting the country be over run by Illegals.

    Can’t have the truth being reported. It is after all the CORPORATE OWNED GLOBAL MEDIA with an agenda. What is that Agenda? Population control. They are jacking off right now as the Amazon burns knowing CO2 is gonna go thru the roof and end the USA. Right now their is a worldwide plot to destroy America and most of the west. That is why all around the globe the people are waking up and throwing out this liberal crazies and voting in Nationalist/Populist right leaning governments to combat this insanity.
