Free Markets, Free People

The real and dangerous 1%

Malthusian extremism is alive and well:

Extremist green campaigning group WWF – endorsed by no less a body than the European Space Agency – has stated that economic growth should be abandoned, that citizens of the world’s wealthy nations should prepare for poverty and that all the human race’s energy should be produced as renewable electricity within 38 years from now. Most astonishingly of all, the green hardliners demand that the enormous numbers of wind farms, tidal barriers and solar power plants required under their plans should somehow be built while at the same time severely rationing supplies of concrete, steel, copper and glass.

That was written by The Register’s Lewis Page, who continues:

It’s not just resources that are limited, in the WWF’s view: human potential itself is up against a hard limit beyond which the race cannot ever advance. Even progress thus far, as seen in the wealthy nations, has been achieved only by an unfair and wasteful over-use of precious resources: we rich Westerners are already beyond the practical limits that humans should ever aspire to achieve in terms of health, wealth – and even of education. That’s not economics – that’s religion. And not very nice religion either.

He’s dead on, of course.  Humans, per groups like the WWF, are undesirable parasites.  In effect, the WWF would prefer the scourge of humanity to be wiped clean from the plant.  And yes, Page is correct – we are talking about a form of religion and “not a very nice” one either.

But, you say, that’s an extremist group, who would ever take seriously the nonsense they’re pushing?  Ben Pile fills us in:

At Rio+20 next month, the world’s elites will meet in Brazil with the aim of holding back human progress. Forty years ago, two ideas about humanity’s relationship with the natural world caught the imagination of the richest and most influential people. The first was that the demands of a growing population were taking more from the planet than could be replaced by natural processes. The second, related idea was that there exist natural ‘limits to growth’. These two reinventions of Malthusianism became the basis of a new form of global politics, which has sought to contain human industrial and economic development ever since.

On whole, it isn’t a “new form of global politics”, it is instead the oldest form of politics with a goal just as old – rule of the elites. 

Moving on, the Rio+20 is sponsored by what organization?

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today asked young people from all over the world to “make some noise” to help accelerate progress on the negotiations of the United Nations Sustainable Development Conference (Rio+20) which will take place in Brazil next month. “The truth is I am disappointed with the negotiations. They are not moving fast enough. That is why I need you,” Mr. Ban told students attending the 13th Annual Global Classrooms International High School Model UN Conference, taking place at in the General Assembly Hall at UN Headquarters in New York, on Thursday evening. “When I say make some noise, I mean raise your voices. Demand real action. Shame those governments into doing more.”

If you’ve ever wondered at the propaganda effort accompanied by the junk science used to propagate the “Global Warming” scam and tried to puzzle out the intent of all of that, well there it is.  Imagine a program to hold back human progress and limit growth.  Imagine the effect of such horrific ideas on real people.  Think of a “great leap backward” and all that that loaded phrase may conjure in your mind.

The “world’s elite” comprise the real 1% and they’re extraordinarily dangerous.  They would change life as we know it based on their religion – because their attempt at using “objective science” to support the institution of the grand design has been shredded.  And don’t be fooled by the veneer of officialdom.  The UN’s agenda is every bit as radical as the WWFs.

That’s what you have to realize.   There is nothing benign in their intent.  The only thing different about the UN and the WWF is how they’ll try to present their plan.  The WWF will be blunt.  The UN will flower it up.  But in the end, they both want the same thing.  And that would mean millions and millions of the 99%’s lives.

  • Boggles the mind.  Yet, this is a realization I came to years ago.  They want us to return to a Middle-Ages standard of living.  Not for them, of course.  Just for the rest of us.
     
    This could mean war.  And I’m not kidding in the least.

    • Yeah.  I’ve noticed that whenever the Middle Ages is mentioned, nobody ever wants to be a serf.
      The WWF has a massive 250,000 sq ft headquarters .. no problem with the carbon footprint .. Huh ?

      • “nobody ever wants to be a serf.”
        Bingo – no one shovels out the shit in Elrond’s stables or hauls off the night soil as the start of their happy day.  It’s all making merry and romantic.  There will be destriers for all worthy men, clad in hauberk and helm, and only the obligatory comic relief will be dressed in lowly fashion and mounted upon asses (and THEY will revel in their lives!), the ladies shall wear silk gowns and stroll the lofty parapets each day, awaiting their love (whatever sex they may be).
         
        Yes, it’s all Ren faire, we’ll dress in silly costumes, men in doublets, women in low cut gowns and chain mail bikinis and we’ll quaff ale and mead in a bucolic life that isn’t short, brutal, cold, dark or barbaric.

        • awaiting their love (whatever sex they may be).

          Speciesist pig…!!!

        • Magic…..these a–hats think energy, lights, food and a decent standard of living are produced by magic. You know when I’ll pay attention to these people? SPEND AN EFFING YEAR LIVING LIKE A PEASENT IN NOKO, AND THEN HONESTLY TELL ME THIS IS WHAT HUMANITY SHOULD ASPIRE TO. AND THEN SPEND THE REST OF YOUR LIFE LIVING LIKE A GRASS-EATING PEON, COLD DARK AND HUNGRY.
          Cretins

  • I think this should cover their response if they bother to respond; “All you narrow minded, right wing, libertarian, tea party extremists are the real danger to Mother Earth!”
     
    When their utopia arrives, where will they buy their Birkenstock’s?

  • “..and “not a very nice” one either.”
     
    Yep. Human sacrifice by proxy is still human sacrifice.
     
    “At Rio+20 next month, the world’s elites will meet in Brazil”
    And I know the first item on the agenda will be promoting the invention of some futuristic way of projecting sounds and images to distant places so that pollution producing and resource wasting travel can be eliminated.

    • What!!!!!!  and miss out on the experiences that IS Rio?  I think not!  Our master’s must be let to travel and see, experience and learn, that they may better rule us on their return home!

    • Thomas Jefferson conveyed exquisite thoughts on paper…carried by horse-back over hardly existent roads hacked out of the wilderness…and sometimes put on sailing ships that took days or weeks to reach Europe.
      But, hell, you don’t get put up in a posh hotel and fed haute cuisine that way…

      • You don’t know that, maybe Elizabeth Warren’s great great great grandma was cooking the treasured Cherokee recipe of Crab with tomato mayonnaise dressing for Jefferson while he was penning the historical words.  Mayonnaise is a Cherokee word meaning “Add the oil slowly while whisking”.

        • “whisking”: Cherokee for “briskly agitating with birch twig”.
          (The crab were delivered by eagles from the Atlantic tribes…along with their gifts of lobster.)  The tomatoes remain a mystery of the noble pre-Columbians.

          • Well played!

          • ROFL literally

          • This made laugh until it hurt

          • Sounds instead like Elizabeth Warren’s great great great grandma was cooking for Le Pavilion, a fabulously expensive French restaurant in Manhattan.

            The two recipes, “Cold Omelets with Crab Meat” and “Crab with Tomato Mayonnaise Dressing,” appear in an article titled “Cold Omelets with Crab Meat,” written by Pierre Franey of the New York Times News Service that was published in the August 22, 1979 edition of the Virgin Islands Daily News, a copy of which can be seen here.
            Ms. Warren’s 1984 recipe for Crab with Tomato Mayonnaise Dressing is a word-for-word copy of Mr. Franey’s 1979 recipe.
            Mrs. Warren’s 1984 recipe for Cold Omelets with Crab Meat contains all four of the ingredients listed in Mr. Franey’s 1979 recipe in the exact same portion but lists five additional ingredients. More significantly, her instructions are virtually a word for word copy of Mr. Franey’s instructions from this 1979 article.

  • I blame … Organic Food
    As it turns out, new research has determined that a judgmental attitude may just go hand in hand with exposure to organic foods. In fact, a new study published this week in the journal of Social Psychological and Personality Science, has found that organic food may just make people act a bit like jerks.

  • Aim low, underachiever.

  • Nature evolved humans.
    To be anti-human is to be anti-nature.
    To deny this causality is evidence of an Ivy League education.
