The Just Stop Oil and related green "Apocalypse" movements are poster children for modern Cultural Marxists - sharing similarities with the Chinese communist mobs behind the Cultural Revolution of 1966. The general goal of every Marxist movement is to undermine or sabotage any opposing culture using whatever means necessary so that it can be scrapped and replaced with a new progressive/collectivist system.  In particular, such activists have long targeted western civilization for demolition with the intention of bringing about a woke revolution.

This is why we often see the same people (or types of people) involved in seemingly separate causes.  It might be protests and riots in favor of BLM, it might be Antifa efforts to disrupt conservative and moderate speakers, it might be protests to control college campuses in the name of Gaza or it may even be anti-carbon protests to derail energy security in the name of "saving the planet" from a global warming threat that doesn't actually exist.

Most interesting is the habit of Just Stop Oil activists to target famous symbols of western history for defacement or destruction.  One might ask what does the Mona Lisa or the Magna Carta have to do with oil production or climate change, and the answer is absolutely nothing.  Protesters would claim that trying to destroy these antiquities is a way to get media attention for their cause, but the only attention they ever get is negative - These actions make people want to hate protesters rather than help them. 

The real message is one of aggression, not attention.  Marxist activists are saying that western culture, not oil, is their enemy. And, if they don't get what they want they will continue to try to smash our greatest works of art and historic documents as a means to tear the west down piece by piece.  When protesters declare the Magna Carta fair game it's not a random decision; they know exactly what they are doing.  In this situation, two gullible elderly women were obviously given a task they were not able to complete:

Rev. Sue Parfitt, 82, and Judy Bruce, 85, a retired biology teacher, were both arrested after they tried to smash a glass case containing the historical document at the British Library in London on Friday, London's Metropolitan Police said.  The Magna Carta is a revered 13th Century treaty that held English royalty to the same legal standards as the citizenry.  It is often cited as a precursor to later freedom-based documents like the US Constitution and a source for western democracy. 

The incompetence of Just Stop Oil protestors is the one saving grace in this scenario, and it is likely a natural consequence of the kinds of people that are attracted to the idea (high IQs apparently don't jump at the chance to join the ranks).  The group is, however, suspiciously coordinated and tends to receive favor from progressive political leaders.  It is a sad reflection of the ideological hysteria holding the world hostage today. With so many different movements chipping away at the foundations of the west, eventually something will break.
