Global Warming, Your Freedoms – and the Man Behind the Curtain
In the last article, we examined what was behind the frantic global warming push on a philosophical, macro level. In short, global warming is a witch’s brew of Malthusian theory conjoined with Fabian socialism, Margaret Sanger and Edward Bernays (the originator of modern advertising and public manipulation). I have demonstrated how global warming is the vehicle whereby the left would like to create a “USSR of the world” – all for our own good, of course. Perhaps former Czech president Vaclav Klaus and leader of the Czech Velvet Revolution which overthrew the communists in his country summarized it best in Blue Planet in Green Shackles: “Today’s debate about global warming is essentially a debate about freedom. The environmentalists would like to mastermind each and every possible (and impossible) aspect of our lives.” Or, as Nancy Pelosi famously stated “Every aspect of our lives must be subjected to an inventory … of how we are taking responsibility.” No word, of course, to the age old question posed by the Roman satirist Juvenal, Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? (Who will watch the guards?), or the abuse and corruption that has characterized every socialist utopia from Robespierre to Eric Holder.
