To understand events in this fallen world, in this haunted age, keep in mind this simple formula.
Science + Politics = Trouble
Trouble for who? Why, for you and me, of course. But also for those suckers who think they’re gonna be on top, but will surely wind up on the bottom with the rest of us.
Folks, this has roots running deep into the 19th century–this depraved dream that, if we harness the limitless and infallible powers of science to a political agenda, we’ll have paradise on earth. It rests on an elitist conviction, or rather a pagan religious conviction, that most people are hopeless idiots and they need a ruling class of scientific experts and political administrators to run their lives for them. Sort of like the way the Morlocks run the lives of the Eloi.
This is what Global Warming’s all about. This is why I spend so much time on it.
But it’s also what a great many people simply will not understand.
Please, people, please–open your eyes. Look at the world around us. To what country has more government ever brought more happiness?
As John Adams observed, if we were angels, we wouldn’t need any government at all. But there aren’t any angels in the government: and who is to govern those sinners who’ve been given so much power over others?
Be assured that they mean to cut down the tree of liberty and burn it to ashes. We can see them already floating their little trial balloons for communism. “Oh, well, sure–it didn’t work when Stalin did it: or Mao or Castro or any of those others. But now we are gonna run the show, and it’s gonna be great!”:
Please pay attention.
These people are more evil than you think.
