Yes I can rethink my position but the result comes out the same. I think that over the past thirty years there has been a change in the psychological atmosphere in western societies. There has been a rise of absolutism and market thinking. Market truths were offered and they were touted as economic laws. Nuance was replaced with certainty and discourse was subjected to the toxic effects of market money and dark money at that. We have seen the rise of industry funded manipulations that frame issues, torque truth and move opinions into positions that are counter to the real interests even to those that espouse them, for example the voting result in Florida this past week, a state that, within a lifetime, will be inundated with seawater.I couldn't agree more. It's a shame to destroy something priceless and irreplaceable. Didn't I see something about a willing buyer who'll keep it as it is? And haven't I seen offers from forum menbers who'll donate money to keep it as it is? I'll join this group. Isn't this the same to you as parting out ALL of the parts, except you don't have to do any work? This is just wrong. Please re-think your position.
We have slouched our way into this mess. We are on the brink of the extinction of "priceless and irreplaceable" species, massive refugee movements, war, killing weather, coastal flooding and cascading effects caused by melting permafrost and ocean acidification. I like to live by the idea that we should think globally but act locally. We should all try to do the small things that will help and brave the criticism for doing so. I am suggesting a compromise on the fate of this little car. May its heart and kidneys go to a worthy recipient.
