If that long run-on sentence made little sense, you are not the Extinction Rebellion target audience - which seems to be stoners. Co-founder Gail Bradbrook said in a press briefing as part of Breaking Convention, a conference on psychedelics in London that while it was not Extinction Rebellion’s policy (wink wink) to promote the use of drugs, they had played a role in her personal journey towards founding a movement designed to piss off commuters and people with actual jobs so unemployed people and students could feel important.
“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. The system resides within us and the psychedelic medicines are opportunities to help us shift our consciousness,” she told the conference.
If you feel like global warming caused your psychological problems, you are not alone.
