This purely an opinion piece, no news or happenings from around the world to share -
You know, there was once a time when even the nasties on the left, let alone the loopies, sought to justify their lust for control by claiming they wanted to improve the lot of the poorer and generally make humankind better off, but these days?
The green left doesn’t even pretend any more. They just want the levers of control and repression in their hands and have dropped any pretence of giving a fuck about mass poverty. Just so long as they can wibble on about Saving The Planet they feel justified in pushing any ratbag Stalinist hell they think they can get away with.
That myth, ‘The Welfare of The People’, no longer rates a mention, even in passing, and forget about any expressions of true concern for the welfare of people. When true human suffering is raised it is just an inconvenience, something to be airbrushed out of the narrative of Caring for The Environment.
You know, I applaud people who get rich, who work for it, creating wealth for all and making millions while doing it. I will admit to a little envy, a smidgeon of jealousy even, but I really begrudge them not a dollar of it. Al Gore though? With him I make an exception; I loath that arsehole with all my heart, and all my soul. Drivelling and drooling on about how we all need to cut back, all the time getting fabulously wealthy from scaremongering and encouraging pointless policies which have the sole effect of making a nightmare of already poverty stricken lives.
I so look forward to seeing him sued.
