What makes Tim Jonze’s The Guardian and his peers rise up from their couch?

Is it to fight injustice and poverty?
Is it to march in protest against nuclear weapons?
Is it to demonstrate against the war in Syria?
Is it to give help to those starving in South Sudan?
What is it that upsets them?

Is it politicians who do not take the climate crisis seriously?
Is it the plastic pollution of the oceans?
Is it that many multinational companies barely pay taxes?
Is it child labor and slavery?
Where does this engagement come from?

Is it to speak for the animals in the abattoir?
Is it to boycott products from totalitarian states?
Is it to send contributions to MSF?
Is it to show support for rape victims?
What is worrying them so much?

Is it temporary employment?
Is it young people who drop out of school?
Is it health services for drug addicts?
Is it living conditions for the homeless?
Why do they suddenly participate on the political arena?

Is it the treatment of women and gay people in muslim countries?
Is it to do something about the smog that sometimes hangs over the city?
Is it for helping the pedestrians?
Is it to protect the Working Environment Act?
Is it to applaud the welfare state?
Is it to defend free speech?

What is so intolerable? What has made dozens of people stand on the barricades and shout that enough is enough?

The OP doesn’t make much sense to me.

Is it a criticism of just The Guardian, on the assumption they’re a lot worse than, say, all the journalists and arts reviewers and video games designers and art students who live and work in Mexico or Africa?

What does the designer of Morrissey’s albums do apart from contribute to more plastic waste in return for some money?

People at The Guardian write about a mixed bag of stuff and much of it is much more in-depth and informative than anything Morrissey has written, to be very honest.

How Soon is Now is great but it’s certainly not a 30, o00 word essay on climate change, plastics, toxic waste or ivory poaching.

Pointing to a worse example does not exonerate a bad example.

That's a non-sequitur within the context of the discussion.

Apples and oranges. Art and journalism serve two different purposes. So that's essentially another non-sequitur.
 

Oh my

Enough! or Too much
Morrissey may or may not be heterosexual however without a doubt, this style of writing definitely comes from a sodomite
Morrissey is not heterosexual... You are cute... the cute homophobic Morrissey fan who tries very hard to imagine that he is straight. Good luck with that!

Last of the famous international screw ups.
This paints the identity crisis perfectly. As amusing as it is horrifying

John Cleese is right in the sense that London is no longer English. These days it is more like some type of international space station. Now I'm not saying whether that is good or bad, but certainly London in 2019 resembles some type of cosmopolitan human soup. I'm not sure why such an observation would even be deemed controversial.
