Whenever you are told to believe something because everyone believes it, you are being asked to stop thinking and join the mob. This is stupid, to say the least.
The nonsense about human caused global warming meets this test explicitly. But the claim that all scientists believe this “inconvenient truth” is a lie and a distortion. So why the fuss and cry? Why are government leaders going to Bali to prostrate themselves before this false idol? To answer this just ask yourselves “now that communism is no longer in fashion, where have the communists and their sympathizers gone?” They’ve become environmentalists, of course.
Like communists, environmentalists are convinced that free human activity is inherently destructive and must be controlled by any means possible. Successful people owe their success to the exploitation of someone or something else. So to protect those less fortunate, the enlightened government (vanguard of the proletariat) must step in to squash the efforts of the successful among us. What a completely pessimistic and hopeless outlook this is!
Are we really running out of resources? Or will we simply become convinced that the can-do spirit that has made us successful will no longer work? We’ve run out of other resources in the past. Whale oil for lamps, for example, but some enterprising spirit refined kerosene and another guy invented electricity.
Let’s face the truth. Bali is Baloney. Don’t believe the pessimistic neuvo-communists. They’re as wrong now as they were during the whole 20th century. We are a can-do, creative, optimistic people. If we need oil, we go out and find more. If we can’t find more oil, invent something else as a substitute. All this can be accomplished by free people. None of it can be accomplished by governments or pessimistic activists, and especially not by international conventions.
