That Figueres

Posted in Politics, The Environment on February 8th, 2015

UNFCCC executive Secretary, Christiana FigueresBoth the Warmists and those who profiteer off their credulity and hatred for Western capitalism and global power aren’t going to go quietly into that cold, dark night of irrelevance that assuredly awaits them. As long as there’s money to be made or wealth to steal they’ll just keep hammering away it, irrespective of whatever actual climate data shows or how flawed their models are shown to be.

One thing that is changing, however, is that their masks are slipping and their true agenda is being spoken of openly at last.

This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the industrial revolution.

– UNFCCC executive Secretary, Christiana Figueres

It’s interesting that the head of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has publicly admitted that their goal is the restructuring and reshaping of the global economy and global industrial base. I just don’t know if it’s good or bad that she was so willing to admit that the UN’s goals have more to do with modifying the economic climate through redistributive “justice” than the weather.

Such brazen honestly after over a decade of lies and misdirections is either a sign of desperation and folly, growing confidence, or yet another attempt to re-brand Global Warming, this time as a “Social Justice” issue.

How They Misthink

Posted in Society on September 27th, 2014

In the Civilized World, especially Britain and America, the “poor,” most especially the “working poor” misthink a lot. They truly mistake their place in the scheme of society and economics and, because of this, have replaced pride with hubris.

I wonder about people who think that those who are poor shouldn’t demand reciprocity from their employers. We should devote ourselves to something that doesn’t benefit us more than it absolutely has to? We’re meant to care about their best interests, but they don’t have to care about ours? If you’re going to put as little as possible into my training and wages, if you’re going to make sure that I can’t get enough hours to survive in order to avoid giving me healthcare, and generally make sure that I’m as uncomfortable as possible at any given time just to make sure I know my place, then how can you expect me to care about your profit margin?

This is an all too common failing though more detrimental to both individuals and nations when coming from the “poor.” They conflate their worth as people with their worth to their employer and almost always over-inflate and overstate that importance.

Hubris Is A Self-Punishing Sin

What these people fail to realize or, at least, fail to accept and internalize is that the only reason that they have one or more jobs is that, at the current time, it’s more feasible and/or cost effective for employers to employ them than it is to either outsource the work or replace the bulk of the labor process with automation. They can’t or won’t grasp the simple concept that they’re by and large disposable and interchangeable parts insofar as the context of their work is concerned and that this is the basic, incontrovertible nature of very low-level, largely unskilled labor.

The Unhealthy Truth

Posted in Politics on February 5th, 2014

Obama and the Liberals in Congress said a lot things about ObamaCare. They made a lot of promises about how it would be good for both people and the nation’s economy.

The Truth is that ObamaCare is unhealthy for the economy
ObamaCare’s Unhealthy Truth

It’s really shame that all that jabbering was nothing but lies. The truth is that ObamaCare is not only unhealthy for people, it’s unhealthy for the economy as well.
