'Spot on'-kommentar fra ringrev i britisk presse; Charles Moore i en ytring i 'The Telegraph' nå fredag som var:

Quote
"... the coming Covid recession is caused 'by a suppression of supply, not by a failure of demand'. In other words, it is not what people wanted. It has been imposed upon them. In a democracy, people rarely vote for what they do not want. After the Covid lockdown, voters will want to get back to work unimpeded and take the full benefits of the collapse of the oil price in falling costs for transport and heating. They will not, you would think, be in the mood to go on paying ever-higher electricity prices for renewables.

(...)

"It is an insoluble problem for green politics that they succeed only among voters who feel guilty for being rich. Greenery depends on the consumerism it hates for its very existence. Most voters will now be angry about getting poorer, not guilty about being rich. [Min utheving.]

"How can green policies survive, then? The clue is in that phrase 'unless government intervenes' [hentet fra en blodfersk rapport, forfattet av famøse britiske klimahysterikere (som f.eks. Lord Stern), om gjenåpningen av samfunnet etter Covid-19-nedstengningen, sett fra et klassisk klimakrisebekjempelsesperspektiv: klimautslippene vil (tragisk nok!) ta seg opp igjen, med mindre myndighetene griper inn]. Only governments can suppress the economic spirits of their people. And the only way they can do so is by exploiting the language of emergency.

"That is why the Covid-19 experience appeals to the Net Zero mind-set. Even before the disease came along, the phrase 'climate emergency' had been deliberately deployed by activists and accepted by MPs. It was invented to persuade government to coerce public opinion. The remedy, you see, is 'led by the science', which is allegedly 'settled'. The message to the people is: lose your rights or lose the planet."

Det er nettopp dette vi ser, som vi må være uhyre vaktsomme overfor framover, som vi må påpeke og (helst) slå ned - vi kan simpelthen ikke tillate disse menneskene å styre den politiske agendaen lenger ...

Og optimisten i meg ser - faktisk - et lite håp i folks post-corona-syn på og -tilnærming til livet og samfunnet, at de vil ha endret seg, om så bare ørlite grann, i en mer fornuftig (les: pragmatisk, kritisk) og følgelig mer normalisert retning; i det minste mot totalt oppkonstruerte (og ideologisk funderte) "kriser" som klimahypen er og har vært.

Hyggelig å se deg tilbake her, Okular!
La oss håpe du får rett i at folk ikke sluker selvskadings- og selvforaktpropagandaen like lett etter corona.

Det kan jo komme til et punkt der man rett og slett ikke kan ta seg råd til denne form for dysfunksjonell godhetsposering?
