Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Wahnsinn*

From an article by Fritz Vahrenholt, Die Welt. Translation by Philipp Mueller. For brevity I’ll concentrate on some of the “highlights” of what passes for scientific integrity and critical thought in Germany.

Germany’s green government advisors admit frankly that decarbonization can only be achieved by the limitation of democracy – both nationally and internationally.

My emphasis. Limitation of democracy – the rally cry of fascist cunts everywhere. And like every other brand of fascist cunticulation, this one doesn’t intend to respect borders.

When it comes to environmental and climate policy, Germany’s Scientific Advisory Council on Global Environmental Change (WBGU) is an influential advisory committee for the German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The chairman of the council is Professor Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research.

Know your enemy…

In April 2011, the WBGU presented a report entitled World in Transition – Social Contract for a Great Transformation.

Alternatively known as: The World in Chains – Socialist Contract for Global Oligarchy.

The main theses of the WBGU are as follows: The current economic model (“fossil industrial metabolism”) is normatively untenable.

The days of industrialisation, energy security and western civilisation, if these misanthropic lunatics get their way, are numbered.

“The transformation to a climate friendly economy… is morally as necessary as the abolition of slavery and the outlawing of child labor.” The reorganization of the world economy has to happen quickly; nuclear energy and coal have to be given up at the same time and very soon.

About child labour; it is rife in societies that have limited or no access to electricity. Coincidence? And please, let’s quickly and simultaneously jettison two of the three main energy resources that underpin all western economies so everyone who isn’t a member of the elite can have parity with hut dwelling dung burners and live in green bondage harmony with Gaia.

The decarbonization of the global economy is, according to these experts, comparable with the Neolithic Revolution and the Industrial Revolution.

I’m beginning to loathe the word expert. The notion that climate alarmists believe their dangerously regressive agenda is comparable with two huge leaps in human ingenuity is a sick joke. These bastards are at war with us. They want to see us grubbing in the dirt where they think we all belong. Well fuck that!

All nations would have to relinquish their national interests and find a new form of collective responsibility for the sake of the climate:

Exchange national interest for collective responsibility, eh? Collectivism is political science not physical science. Sounds like the ghost of Erich Honecker is stalking the halls of the Potsdam Institute. If so it explains ecofascist bullshit like the Stockholm Syndrome Memorandum.

The world citizenry agree to innovation policy that is tied to the normative postulate of sustainability and in return surrender spontaneous and persistence desires.

These morons really are away with the fairies, aren’t they. They’ve obviously given their adult minders the slip.

This strong state provides, therefore, for the “social problematization” of unsustainable lifestyles. It overcomes “stakeholders” and “veto players” who “impede the transition to a sustainable society.” In Germany, climate protection should therefore become a fundamental goal of the state for which the legal actions of the legislative, executive and judicial branches will be aligned.

To anyone who still thinks this insanity is about science, I have a genuine Wellsian time machine you might be interested in.

The Vahrenholt/Mueller article continues to explore the psycho-delusional, zero-science ravings of Schellnhuber and the council of the Pottydim Institute in greater depth here.

    There’s a lot of truth in the old saying that a Leopard can never change its spots.

    It is also being dissected over at Bishop Hill

  3. Nelsontouch says:

    And everyone will shrug and assume, “Can’t possibly happen, they’re completely bonkers.”
    History doesn’t repeat itself, but it rhymes.

  4. Sam Duncan says:

    “The world citizenry agree”

    Jesus W. Christ on a Segway. I don’t even agree with myself sometimes, and they think they can get the whole 6-odd billion of us to concur?

    Except, of course, they don’t. What they mean is, “You’ll do what you’re fucking told, you miserable shower, and we’ll all pretend that you’ve agreed to it voluntarily because otherwise that would make us a crowd of authoritarian bastards, and that’s not something we like to think about”, same as always.

  5. RAB says:

    That is very very scarey, but also quite heartening. Let me explain…

    That is completely upfront. The science doesn’t matter anymore, it’s just the excuse, the concentration is now all on building a New World Order and Global Govt, and it doesn’t include any imput or complaint from us mere Plebs. Such bold and stark statements of intent can, and will be resisted, the cause of freedom and Democracy is not dead yet.

    And the heartening thing is, you can rely on all the crypto Eco Fascists not to be able to agree or co-operate with each other. China and India will want to run the show, Russia will not agree, and nobody is going to let the Germans have another go again.

    Nope, they will pull themselves apart. Despite their pipe dreams of Global Government, Nationalism is still incredibly strong.

  6. Sam Duncan says:

    You’re probably right, RAB. I hope you are, at least. I’m no great fan of nationalism – national sentiment and patriotism, yes, but not the conflation of state with nation; all that “running the country” and “Britain says X, Y and Z” nonsense – but, as with so much in politics, it’s by far the lesser of the two most likely evils.

  7. Breeze says:

    “so everyone who isn’t a member of the elite can have parity with hut dwelling dung burners and live in green bondage harmony with Gaia.”

    Except these elites will starve and suffer like the rest of us. They don’t seem to understand just how complex our modern society is. Its not like you suddenly turn off the electricity and we return to the 19th century. Modern civilisation has been built on technological innovations driven by electricity for a hundred years. That can’t be undone without creating a catastrophe. And I doubt these idiots realise that they’ll be just as far up shit creek as the rest of us.

    “collective responsibility ”

    Damn. At least they are no longer hiding their socialist agenda. This sounds like something straight out of a Lenin propaganda speech.

  8. Lynne says:

    Breeze – the elites won’t starve in the same way that tyrants don’t starve.

  9. Roue le Jour says:

    I suppose I’d better get used to being called a fascist cunt then (as IanB has already done), as I’m all in favour of the limitation of democracy, to people with a functioning brain. The ability to support oneself through one’s own efforts in a commercial environment is a good definition to start with, and would certainly weed out ‘green government advisers’ what ever the fuck they are.

    Lynne, I agree that the elite won’t starve, but I think Breeze has a point, I don’t believe these idiots realise the complexity of the system they are trying to pull down. Granted tyrants don’t starve, but they have to import all the things that make their comfort possible, generators, air conditioners, water purifiers, motor cars, because the economy they have fucked doesn’t produce these things. So, if everybody is living in Zimbabwe, where do you import this stuff from?

    “The world citizenry agree to innovation policy that is tied to the normative postulate of sustainability and in return surrender spontaneous and persistence desires.”

    Gil the ARM?

  11. Paul Marks says:

    This is a confession – and a voluntary confession is worth a thousand charges by “paranoid” people (errr people like us).

    Tyranny at home – and internationally.

    World tyranny.,

    This is nothing to do with whether man made globel warming is real or not (although, by the way, if the Germans really believed in it they would not be getting rid of nuclear power).

    This is a power grab – the old dream of the “great and the good” ruling everyone else “for their own good”.

    Roue le Jour.

    Of course there is such a thing as good “limits on democracy” (the Bill of Rights springs to mind).

    But, as you know, this is not about limiting the amount of statism people can demand.

    On the contray – it is about removing the right of people to say “no” to statism.
