The Ecology of Peace culture advocates on behalf of EoP Truth and Reconciliation to End the Abel and Kane Cold War [eoptrc-akcoldwar.tygae.org.za] negotiations to implement [eop-nwo-sco.tygae.org.za] EoP Scientific and Cultural Law [eop-scicultlaw.tygae.org.za] as international law; to enable (i) the Genghis Khan reforestation effect to mitigate climate change; (ii) and orderly and humane deindustrialization and depopulation [eop-v-wip-deindpopn.tygae.org.za]; return to living in harmony with ecologicaly carrying capacity limits.
Under EoP Scientific law unlawful violence shall be procreation and/or consumption above carrying capacity limits. Under EoP Cultural law unlawful violence is violation of fully informed consent. Penalties for conviction of negligent and/or intentional engagement in unlawful procreation and/or consumption above ecological carrying capacity limits [eop-footprint.tygae.org.za]; and/or deception in terms of relating; are documented at Crimes of Aggression [crimes-of-aggression.tygae.org.za].
Eco-socialists often point out that countering climate change will require a social revolution. But Andreas Malm is the the first to my knowledge who has tried to portray how such a revolution might be triggered and what it might look like. To do so, he draws on two past upheavals: in Syria (2011) and Russia (1917).
The discussion of Russia draws on a little known and absolutely outstanding work by Lars Lih, Bread and Authority, published more than 20 years ago. In my opinion, Lars’s concept of how the Russian people rallied in support of the Soviet government’s “food supply dictatorship” is quite convincing.
Lars Lih has recently published a great deal on how the Soviet government was established, deepening the points made by Malm. (See http://www.johnriddell.wordpress.com).
Malm sees the “food supply dictatorship” as an evil seed that grew into Stalinism. Isaac Deutscher, arguing that there was no such inevitability, said that although a seed of Stalinism was there, so were the seeds of many other great historical developments. The Russian revolution stands as the most creative event of the last century.
I suspect that if the ghost of Marx were able to comment on the climate crisis, after pointing out that “I told you so”, he might add that the climate crisis, so avoidable and so immesurably tragic, may yet be the Feuerbach (river of fire) of our liberation.
“The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point is to change it.” (Theses on Feuerbach)

According to EoP interpretation of Alliance for World Scientists [MG Copy] and Near Term Extinction abrupt climate change scientists warnings [SQ Copy]; there is a very small window of opportunity – 2018, latest 2020 – to implement Ecology of Peace Scientific and Cultural law as international law, to enable orderly and humane deindustrialization and depopulation, and enable the Genghis Khan reforestation effect to mitigate [PNG] climate change and ecological collapse. Put simply: if EoP Scientific and Cultural law [eop-scicultlaw.tygae.org.za] is not implemented by latest 2020, we are all – black, white, brown, yellow, rich, poor, old, young, male, female – locking ourselves into our ‘Je Suis Nazi Juden’ WiP ‘right to breed/consume’ international law Thelma and Louise planetary Auschwitz climate change oven runaway train heading for the NTE cliff without any brakes.
