Honestly whenever I see the expression, the 'rich West', I see mountains of bodies on every continent, whose life and labour were stolen to enrich the poverty-stricken, disease-laden British and their European cousins, as they ransacked their way around the globe. Which they are still doing. And why we are facing this climate catastrophe. It is the era of the Eurokleptocene. The species extinction began with the spread of Europeans across the face of the earth. All this is covered up when their scientists call it the 'Anthropocene'. No, you lying shits, the majority of humanity are not responsible.
