What is Extreme?

We call people who march in the street to call attention to the destruction of rainforests, or global warming, extremists. We treat the corporate types in suits as if they were moderates. Yet they have done some very radical and violent changes to our earth — cutting down 95% of the old growth forests and released enough CO₂ to trigger a mass extinction event and wiped out food fish fast enough so all of them will be extinct by 2042 and poisoned most of the world’s rivers. Imagine some terrorist organisation did what industry has. We would be beside ourselves with rage.
