IBD EDITORIAL: Copenhagen: Environmental Munich
Climate: Czech President Vaclav Klaus once called global warming a new religion, a Trojan horse for imposing a global tyranny worse than communism. Details about the Copenhagen Conference prove how right he was.THE POSTMODERN LEFT WOULD HAVE YOU BELIEVE THAT INDUSTRIALIZATION IS BAD - AND AGW IS JUST THEIR LATEST REASON WHY.
The first of three marathon negotiating sessions designed to hammer out the details of the Copenhagen Accord on climate change to be signed in December began on Sunday, March 29, in Bonn, Germany. From what we know, it will be a surrender to tyranny as significant as another negotiated 71 years ago.
A 16-page informational note obtained by Fox News outlines the goals and agenda of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), a body paving the way to Copenhagen with good intentions. Behind this alphabet soup is a list of ideas and talking points for what the U.N. calls an "ambitious and effective international response to climate change."
We're not sure how effective it will be, but it's certainly ambitious as it seeks to reorder the world economy in a de facto repeal of the Industrial Revolution. Under the supervision of the U.N., free trade would die, industries that survived could be relocated across borders, and we would have mandatory carbon offsets and cap-and-trade imposed on a global scale.
... Writing in the Financial Times recently, Czech President Vaclav Klaus said: "As someone who lived under communism for most of his life, I feel obliged to say that I see the biggest threat to freedom, democracy, the market economy and prosperity now in ambitious environmentalism, not communism."
Klaus told the Cato Institute recently that "environmentalism is a religion" that accepts global warming on faith and seeks to exploit it to reshape the world and economic social order.
Its commandments are now being written. The U.N. will be its temple and U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon its high priest.
BUT BOTH PROPOSITIONS - THAT INDUSTRIALIZATION IS BAD FOR HUMANITY AND THAT HUMANS ARE CAUSING GLOBAL WARMING - ARE DEMONSTRABLY FALSE.
- SINCE THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION, HUMAN POPULATION HAS GONE UP ONE-HUNDREDFOLD - AND SO HAVE LIVING STANDARDS AND LIFE-SPANS FOR PEOPLE IN THE INDUSTRIAL WORLD.
- THE PEOPLE WITH THE SHORTEST LIFE-SPANS AND LOWEST LIVING STANDARDS ARE PEOPLE IN THE LEAST INDUSTRIALIZED NATIONS - OR ONES WITH A LEGACY OF COMMUNISM.
- THE ANTIDOTE FOR THEIR POVERTY ISN'T MAKING THE INDUSTRIALIZED WORLD LESS INDUSTRIALIZED OR MORE "SUSTAINABLE", BUT MAKING THE THIRD WORLD MORE INDUSTRIALIZED - AND EXPANDING FREE ENTERPRISE AND FREE TRADE.
- AFRICA NEEDS NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS, SWEAT SHOPS AND HIGHWAYS AND CARS & TRUCKS AND REFRIGERATORS AND ELECTRIC STOVES, NOT CARBON CREDITS.
THEY ARE NOTHING MORE THAN INDUSTIOPHOBIC, SELF-HATING MODERNITES.
TO IMPROVE THEIR LIVES, POOR PEOPLE WITH SHORT LIFE-SPANS NEEDS TO BECOME GREATER CONSUMERS - OF ENERGY AND EVERYTHING ELSE.
LOOK AT THESE MAPS (RIGHT):
THE LESS CARBON PEOPLE PRODUCE THE POORER THEY ARE.
SHEESH: AFRICA DOESN'T EVEN SHOW UP ON THE CARBON MAP!
AND IT'S THE POOREST POPULATED PLACE ON EARTH.
THERE IS A CONNECTION THERE...
AND THE LEFT IS THE "CONNECTOR".
THIS IS WHY - TO LIFT THE REST OF HUMANITY OUT OF POVERTY - WE NEED TO DESTROY LEFTISM.
This has been going on for years. Check out people like Maurice Strong. He set up the IPCC,Kyoto etc.
He,Gore and Soros are all behind this scam.
Add Obama also.
Add this piece to the 'must read" list.
Quote: "This is why - to lift the rest of humanity out of peverty we must destroy leftism . . ."
or as defined by Mark Levin - a more accurate identity is "statist" or "statism" as opposed to leftist or liberal.
Quoting Levin: the modern liberal believes in the supremacy of the state. . . .
"They're not liberals, they're not progressives. I understand the history of the progressive movement. They represent government, and they represent government against the people. They're constantly trashing groups of people in this country, the individual.
They want to create a dispirited population, they want the population to surrender their liberties to the government, they want the government — the population to rely on the government for all their needs and so what they want to create drones. . .Well, to put a fine point on it, freedom is freedom from coercion, and what the statist says is you should have freedom from one, and we will deliver it. We will make possible — the impossible possible, we will make that which is unequal equal, and they create devils, they create — they turn citizen on citizen, and yet their agitation and agitating is never done, is it?
There's no limit to the power they want to take. How can you confine what the leftist wants to do, what the statist wants to do once you've abandoned the constitution. You have to rely on their judgment? They have no judgment. This is why they talk about a living and breathing constitution. They want to get away from the limits on government, and you see it right now in spades."
Levin's characterization: They have no judgement is confirmed by Evan Sayet, as he discusses with great humor and eloquence the "cult of nondiscriminitness" in his lecture titled: “Regurgitating the Apple: How Modern Liberals "Think"
Here is a brief snippet from the lecture which discusses the issue:
What happens is, they are indoctrinated into what I call a "cult of indiscriminateness." The way the elite does this is by teaching our children, starting with the very young, that rational and moral thought is an act of bigotry; that no matter how sincerely you may seek to gather the facts, no matter how earnestly you may look at the evidence, no matter how disciplined you may try to be in your reasoning, your conclusion is going to be so tainted by your personal bigotries, by your upbringing, by your religion, by the color of your skin, by the nation of your great-great-great-great-great grandfather's birth; that no matter what your conclusion, it is useless. It is nothing other than the reflection of your bigotries, and the only way to eliminate bigotry is to eliminate rational thought. There's a brilliant book out there called The Closing of the American Mind by Professor Allan Bloom. Professor Bloom was trying to figure out in the 1980s why his students were suddenly so stupid, and what he came to was the realization, the recognition, that they'd been raised to believe that indiscriminateness is a moral imperative because its opposite is the evil of having discriminated. I paraphrase this in my own works: "In order to eliminate discrimination, the Modern Liberal has opted to become utterly indiscriminate."
Statism = modern liberalism = extreme leftism = Cult of Indescriminatness
