Well, which is it? Man’s stewardship of the environment or collectivism in disguise? Can’t we have some plain talk? What is ‘it’? ‘It’ was once called “global cooling”, followed by “global warming” and now widely known as “climate change”. Well, which is it? Do you truly want to know?
Obviously, you can’t have it both ways, that is you can’t have it as “global cooling” and “global warming”. “Climate change” is such a neutral term. It’s like my favorite word: “interesting”. When angry or ignorant people approach me intending to engage me in a fruitless debate, I simply reply to their claims as “interesting”. What does “interesting” mean? Absolutely nothing. Nothing at all. What does “climate change” mean? Absolutely nothing. Nothing at all.
In the name of all three claims by so called environmentalists, global cooling, global warming & climate change, we see the disintegration of heavy industries, smaller automobiles, higher fuel prices, declining electrical power reliability and so on.
Finally. Finally the number one environmentalist comes forward to disclose the truth behind their movement: the destruction of capitalism.
I quote from Investors Business Daily, 02/10/2015, an article titled: U.N. Official Reveals Real Reason Behind Warming Scare
At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.
“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,” she said.
Referring to a new international treaty environmentalists hope will be adopted at the Paris climate change conference later this year, she added: “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”
The only economic model in the last 150 years that has ever worked at all is capitalism. The evidence is prima facie: From a feudal order that lasted a thousand years, produced zero growth and kept workdays long and lifespans short, the countries that have embraced free-market capitalism have enjoyed a system in which output has increased 70-fold, work days have been halved and lifespans doubled.”
What is capitalism?
- Wordreference.com: “an economic system in which investment in and ownership of the means of production and distribution are privately or corporately owned“
- Merriam-Webster.com: “a way of organizing an economy so that the things that are used to make and transport products (such as land, oil, factories, ships, etc.) are owned by individual people and companies rather than by the government“
- My definition: “capitalism is a system for the exchange of goods and services among a free people“
In all three of the above definitions, do you see the word “system”? Let’s compare socialism with capitalism: the latter is a ‘system’; the former a ‘theory’. Why is socialism a theory? It’s never been proven to work. But, free market forces have been the staple economic system since the founding of our wonderful country and we call those free market forces ‘capitalism’.
What’s your plan? Are you going to sit out the fight and assure enslavement of your children and grandchildren? Not I, my friends.
Collectivism is another word for fascism. Am I getting through to you? Quite simply, the difference between capitalism and collectivism is ownership of property. Living in a capitalist society, we the people own property as opposed to collectivism where the government owns all the property. Fascists manage a collectivist society. Ruling elite own it all – lock, stock and barrel. How well does collectivism work? Look no farther than 90 miles off the shores of Florida. Cuba has been a fascist, socialist, collectivist ‘laboratory’ since 1959. 55 years of misery. 55 years of poverty. 55 years of slavery.
Can’t happen here, you say. Yes it can, my friends. In fact, it’s happening right before your eyes.
- The Affordable Care Act aka ObamaCare
- Nationalization of the Internet
- Destruction of our free-market economy
- Ever enlarging federal government
- Destruction of the family
What’s the cure? At this point in time, only the Living God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob can save us. Talk all we wish. Elect all the Republicans and Libertarians as we will, they can’t stop this slow march toward national dissolution.
Here and there pockets of spiritual revival, spiritual awakenings, are appearing. Are they enough? No. Only national repentance, believing in and confessing the Lord Jesus Christ can save us. Question is will we repent or continue down this path of self-destruction?
