Global Warming:

What You DO Need to Know

I postponed a deadly entry about the Brits for a day or two because of this.

ADDING IT ALL UP. If you're an InstaPunk fan, you probably already think Global Warming is an absurd act of denial by the lefties. They're not afraid of Islamic barbarians who want to kill them by the millions right now, but they are afraid of a few degrees of warming in the next century. This may be irritating, you think, but it's not actually important -- just one more symptom of the unreality in which lefties live all the time, whether the ambient temperature is hot or cold. That's the only explanation for the reaction of otherwise intelligent conservatives -- like Glenn Reynolds -- who don't really believe the scare rhetoric about Global Warming but don't mind it because it would be a good thing for us all to conserve energy. He's not buying the Big Lie, but he is buying hybrids and calmly assessing the economic merits of a carbon-use market. He's found a way to straddle the fence. No harm, no foul.

I wish it were so. But the truth is that the Global Warming scare is a political strategy. Never let it be said that the morons who believed in Marxism and defended the slaughters of Stalin are stupid. Well, they are, but they're not. They're stupid about everything that matters in life, but they're exceptionally shrewd when it comes to politics. In seizing on human-generated Global Warming as a cause, they've once again demonstrated their genius for propaganda.

They want to use it to create a world government that subjugates individual nations and people to the irrefutable ideal of preserving the planet. In other, simpler words, their objective is communism -- the replacement of individual free choice and free markets with a collective that has the power to exterminate anyone and anything on behalf of a rational government model that justifies all actions without resort to bourgeois notions of morality.

Once the precedent has been set that there is a planetary cause which trumps human-centric morality, they will be free to rule everyone as they -- and their chosen experts -- see fit. It's important to recognize that modern liberalism has nothing whatever to do with traditional liberalism, which values the individual above all other principles. The real desire of contemporary "liberals" is to establish a ruling class with absolute power over all us ordinary slobs who don't share their peculiar perspectives on social justice.

A scientific cause is the perfect instrument for achieving this objective. The definition of science is that it consists of what has been proven factually true. It cannot therefore be rebutted by faith, values, esthetics, or aspiration. Its status as irrevocable truth empowers the enlightened (i.e., those in power) to censor, punish, obliterate, and overturn pre-existing values without any philosophical backchat. Science allows the substitution of facts for truth, however conceived. If he were alive today, the amoral keepers of the Global Warming faith could wring obedience from Jesus Christ on the subject of recycling and secondhand smoke -- without uttering a single word about divinity, faith, or sin. In the preferred "liberal" model, power belongs not to the good but to the smart. You will learn, despite three centuries of disrespect and rebellion, to genuflect to Yale.

That's why ducking the questions about Global Warming -- "I don't know," "I'm not sure," "I don't disagree in principle," "I don't see the harm in going along," -- is a suicide pact with totalitarianism.

These people are nuts. And they're also winning the battle over what the politics of the future will look like. Global Warming is not a sideshow. It's the incredibly ponderous first step of an assault that intends to remove all individual free will from life. That's why it's imperative that all of us quit making jokes about Global Warming and go to war for the purpose of debunking it.

Here are the remaining segments of the documentary whose beginning you saw above. (Parts 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.) Study. And then spread the word. Not laughingly, but as seriously as if your life depended on it. Because it does. Or at least your children's lives depend on it.
