“The protest” has been designed to cause no harm – How dare the establishment parade their ignorance by way of attacking the life force that’s going to help save us.  Young people are desperate. They’re wearing a t-shirt that says: Just Stop Oil. They’re doing something.

I want to find a way to work with these people because I think they can help me in my plan to save the world.

There is a way out of all our troubles which is to change our economy to a land based economy.

It’s called .

No one has the right to own Land because Land is the source of all wealth.  Everything we make or do comes from the Earth’s biosphere, ocean, underground treasure, electromagnetic spectrum.  No country or individual should be allowed to own any of these things.  That is why capitalism is killing us.  Capitalism is about abuse of Land and exploitation of its people.  Start by taxing people for the use of Land, it will bring in massive revenue for the public purse and establish fair distribution of wealth.
All you people who wish to prop up the establishment, can you ever imagine sticking your hand to the wall for something you believe in? Media always seek to turn people against each other in order to make nothing happen, stalemate, divide and rule. King mob.

  1. Vivienne,

    I agree about the media turning people against each other and spreading propaganda, but I’m not sure that throwing tomato soup on a painting accomplishes anything! Young people need to think about the world they live in and focus their energy on making positive change in the world. I agree that no one person or government has the right to own land or natural resources. Thanks for your message Vivienne!

  2. There are so many logical fallacies in your argument and way you understand the world that I do not even know where to start disentangling all the mess, or even if it’s achievable to gain even a glimmer of reason behind all the assumptions you have got wrong. I just wanted to point out some of the greatest lacks of understanding in your letter: owning land is already taxable, it always has been. Saying that, I don’t think it’s necessary continuing to point out other you’re wrong since the basic premises of your arguments are faulty. Moreover, those spoiled little brats could have the universe printed on their shirts, but it wouldn’t make a difference for the deaths they’ve caused by blocking the way of ambulances going to hospitals. Grow up both you and those spoiled clueless brats

  3. The paintings are unharmed, a message is being misinterpreted and the planet continues to be harmed by only human hands. In turn, great paintings can always be made again, but not if the earth is uninhabitable.

  5. Completely disagree with Vivienne on this. Protest is important, but we shouldn’t be encouraging stunts like this in Art galleries. We’ve just had another one in Italy- two protesters actually glued themselves to a Botticelli, damaging it irrevocably in the process. That Botticelli is unique in the whole history of the human race, nobody alive could make another one, not in a million years. But they could have come up with a thousand other means of protesting successfully, that really did cause no harm. I’m sorry but however you want to put it, it’s a stupid thing to do, and absolutely the wrong way to make a political statement. Throwing a tin of tomato soup at a painting- it’s designed to cause outrage. That’s the point. You can’t then attack those who feel outraged, when that was the whole point in the first place. This is our cultural history and these silly little girls think that they can appropriate it and mistreat it for the sake of their causes, and I think that that is outrageous. There is a place for protest, and it is not within the National Gallery. Outrageous, misguided & criminal. I hope they go to jail!
