My self-image illustrates what it feels like to live in an era where small people are being blamed for buying plastic bags and using avocados. At the same time, the political and economic game to maintain consumption prevents real decisions to halt climate change.

Stitch up = A set up, a trick. If someone stitches you up, then they’re playing you for a fool. It’s often used when framing someone for a crime.
