Most revolutions have eaten their children. Just think of the archetype of all revolutions – the big french revolution of 1789. It toppled the monarchy, instituted a radical regime that became famous for chopping heads off, killed most of the most famous revolutionaries, and went back to monarchy in its most exuberant form – the empire which laid waste to Europe. This revolution also eats its children. Radicals will oppose anything that allows humans to survive. There is no middle ground for them.
The comedic spectacle of activist politicians choking off the supply of raw materials required for their precious green revolution, then wondering at the lack of progress.
