Climate Change – LewRockwell

1. Absolute authoritarianism without meaningful accountability.

The leading advocates of the Climate Change movement are politicians, entertainers, and even children. Climate preachers such as Al Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio lack any formal scientific training whatsoever, and live personal lives of unparalleled luxury while prescribing carbon austerity for the masses. Yet no one is permitted to point out their scientific ignorance or call attention to their hypocritical lifestyles.

Spare me the modern day equivalent of the “Court Jester” instructing “We, The Sheeple” how the world should work.

These “watermelons” (i.e.: Green outside; Red <communist> inside) don’t have the experience of one small business owner or the credentials of a wise academic like a Rothfarb.

Sorry, but — to misapply “A Few Good Men” — “I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don’t give a damn what you think you are entitled to.” Colonel Jessep in A Few Good Men played by Jack Nicholson

I don’t care what these truly “dumb” people pontificate about.  Let them live their beliefs like a Mother Theresa, Gandhi, MLK, or Ron Paul, and then and only then should anyone listen to them.

Argh!

INSPIRATIONAL: Race, an obsolete paradigm and an erroneous meme?

A Co-worker sent this to me. 

My thoughts went like this:

*** begin quote ***

Would you consider that “race”, whatever that is, is an obsolete paradigm and an erroneous meme?

Changing paradigms is easy; memes are painful.

What did MLK say? “Content of their character” …

and Gandhi “be the change you want to see in the world” …

and the old Catholic hymn “let their be peace on earth and let it begin with me”.

Sigh, I’m just a fat old white guy injineer …

and I “Dona Nobis Pacem”.

After looking at another one of these, I think where we differ is that you tend to look only at the victim, rather than the circumstances surrounding? Have I summed it up correctly?

No, I am “shocked” — as in “I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!” Captain Renault in Casablanca — at the result. And, the pattern that keeps repeating over and over and over. The “King” and the “Sheriff’s men” keep abusing the poor Saxon serfs. Where’s our “Robin Hood”? Where is our “George Washington”? Where is our “Zorro”? Unfortunately, we each have to become our own.

I think Martin Luther King, Gandhi, and others have demonstrated the path. Peaceful non-cooperation.

Take a small example, “speed limits”! On every road every day in the USA, the drivers demonstrate a complete disregard for the diktats of the “King”. Tax law is another; the underground economy is huge. Drugs is another.

Us old stuffed shirts have to join “The Resistance”. Maybe we don’t have to blow up bridges and trains like the French did to the Nazis.

Maybe we just refuse to cooperate?

Peacefully, firmly, and, of course, picking our battles.

But all the while, burning with a “revolutionary” fire.

Remember Churchill and Solzhenitsyn

“…if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” -Churchill, The Second World War, vol. 1, The Gathering Storm (London: Cassell, 1948, 272, on the British guarantee to Poland in Spring 1939.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .” — Alexander Solzhenitsyn
