Concerted effort by a statistically significant portion of people in of all classes in all facets of life that people inhibit.

I'm talking politics, music, building trades, academics, churches, sports, agriculture, advertisements, tech in general, etc.

All that being said, shit ain't gonna happen till it's too late. Best-case scenario, we have some economic realignment towards regenerative industry/lifestyles on a scale greater than the the WWII "wartime" economy come into effect in the 11th hour only to keep full extermination of most creatures we need doing their thing to survive (like bees). But at that point, life will still be uninhabitable for millions, maybe billions of people more than currently. That's best case to me.

What would an unironic yes they're all terrible and heads of a state we want abolished caveat included list even look like? Would it be in order of president number as the state has grown larger and hence more oppressive over time? Or are some unequivocally worse than others?

For instance, recency bias and personal effects on my family would lead me to say Reagan was the worst. But Andrew Jackson existed too, but not recently.

There's also an inverse effect I think that is rarely explored. When you live in a rural area and the only physical ads you see are on country roads or just off the highway, they are rage-inducing because they take you out of the feeling of nature you otherwise feel just seeing the greenery.
