Nobody likes to see his pet apocalypse shoved out of the limelight by someone else’s pet apocalypse. COVID-19 has upstaged the Climate Change doomsayers, and now they want back in.
Inspired by the recent practice of corrupting death certificates by listing the Chinese Wuhan Death Virus as the official cause of death for almost every death, Climate Change wackos now want “climate change” listed as the cause of death on death certificates (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/may/27/activists-call-for-climate-change-to-be-listed-as-/). In addition to panicking the public into thinking powerful elites should “Do Something About Climate Change,” the purpose of doing this with the death certificates is explained: “death data must be coupled with large-scale environmental datasets so that impact assessments can be done.”
And they’ll want to know where to put the camps for climate change deniers.
How many apocalypses can center state accommodate?
But they all have one thing in common. They are all for the purpose of giving left-wing loons power over other people’s lives.
I think we all know that the brass ring, for global elitists, is a world government. Absolute power. Because they’re The Smartest Persons In The World and we should consider it a privilege to be ruled by them.
How crazy are these kooks? How filled with hubris? Here’s how they put it back in the Seventies, in Humanist Manifesto 2:
“Using technology wisely, we can control our environment, conquer poverty, markedly reduce disease, extend our life-span, significantly modify our behavior, alter the course of human evolution and cultural development, unlock vast new powers, and provide humankind with unparalleled opportunity for achieving an abundant and meaningful life.”
If that doesn’t give you the willies, you’re probably dead.
Oh! And all you’ve got to do is give up all belief in God, all hope of eternal life and forgiveness of sins, and the last vestige of sane humility.
Now, who’s going to do all these wonderful things? Sinners and idiots, of course. Who else would want to sit where God sits and try to do His job? They’ve got the power of the state and the omniscience of Science–what could possibly go wrong?
But when anything does go wrong, whatever that might be–coronavirus, for example–then it can only be because someone has slipped up somewhere! Things are not supposed to go wrong–not with us geniuses running the show. Some Hater must’ve snuck some sand into the works. Or maybe the ungrateful deplorables out there didn’t do what we told them to. It can’t be that The Smartest Persons In The World aren’t fit to be gods!
The bigger the government, the bigger its crimes. If the 20th century ever taught us anything at all, it should have taught us that.
This creepy pagan pseudo-religion has oozed into our civilization year by year, mostly without Christians even noticing, let alone going out on a limb to proclaim the truth. There is only one person who has the right to set His throne upon the earth–Jesus Christ, and none other.
Meanwhile, the expectation that Everything Is Supposed To Go Right only makes us prone to panic–just as we are seeing in waves of dread and terror over imaginary Climate Change and not-imaginary coronavirus: real, but not The End O’ The World.
Do you really want these self-anointed nincompoops modifying your behavior?
As they confessed once before, and long ago, they have no king but Caesar.
Alas, alack, and welladay! Game over, man! Why, that’s only… only [breaks out calculator; hands trembling, drops it, picks it up, drops it again]… Good grief! That’s only 1,900 years from now! Everything’ll wind up underwater but the Himalayas!
Well, like, s***, that settles it–all power and all money to a global government, and maybe, just maybe, they can save us! Otherwise when the year 3000 comes around and you find yourself standing around without a lifeboat as the water level rises to your eyeballs–and that’s with you standing on the roof!–don’t blame the government. We told you we had to have absolute power over everything and everybody! We told you we had to have all your money! But you wouldn’t listen! You wouldn’t listen to Science! And now you see what happens to people who won’t listen to Science.
Pack your water wings, folks! It’s gonna get mighty wet in just another 19 hundred years.
