By 2020 this vision of doom had pretty much passed its shelf life, at least in America. But for a while there it was giving children nightmares.
Humanism always needs a boogieman to scare people into compliance with its diktats. And along came COVID-19 to fill that role. Thanks to the panic raised up by the virus, the world has frittered away six out of this year’s nine months so far–shutting down nations’ economies, quarantining all the healthy people along with the sick, destroying small businesses, freaking people out with fear, and generating a malaise that has deadened everything.
There’s always going to be a doomsday myth. In the 1970s it was The Coming Ice Age. We get Doomsday du Jour. All marine life wiped out! White supremacists take over!
The humanists’ god is the State–that is to say, themselves–and denying the real God, they promise to do everything they say God should have done but didn’t, because there is no God. So the State will create paradise on earth–blah-blah-blah, you know the drill. And if they have to break a few eggs to make the omelet… We’ve seen that one, too.
“Yea, let God be true, but every man a liar,” wrote St. Paul (Romans 3:4).
Is this the year the locust has eaten down to the ground, or what?
We’ve got the panic pandemic Chicom-Wereallgonnadie! virus, Climbit Change (“51 days left to save the planet!”), and Democrats and social media barons bragging about how they’re gonna addle and confuse the national election so Hidin’ with Biden can move into the White House–
And now… no Peeps! No marshmallow peeps.
This is the most unkindest cut of all. This is too much. The Just Born Co. is not going to re-start production until sometime next year: everybody’s gotta stay home on account of The Virus. King Virus. Long live the king. So we can’t have any Peeps.
Are we going to do this every time there’s a disease on the loose, from now on?
Are we going to remember that Communist China unleashed this on the world? And that Democrats are trying every dirty trick they can think of to exploit it?
Oh Lord our God! Deliver us out of the claws of the ungodly and the wicked, who seek to profit from this wasted year. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
We are raising up a generation afraid of its own shadow.
Across the street from us, the kids came out of St. Francis’ School–not talking, laughing, or joking, but in complete silence; all of them in face masks; walking with their arms stretched out in front of them, like an old cartoon of someone in a trance, to maintain Social Distancing as Mandated by officials who have learned not to bother with actual laws anymore.
But we gotta do this, see! Because if we don’t, The Virus gonna getcha! Kill ya dead!
And this comes right on the heels of “Only 11 more years before The End O’ The World!” Only government can save us! And only if we give them absolute power!
Meanwhile, they’ve made school worse! Who would’ve ever thought they could do that? No recess. No gabbing with your friends. No smiling.
How long will this crazy schiff last before it blows up in our faces?
Climate Change is gonna kill us! Coronavirus gonna kill us! White supremacists hidin’ under every bed! Extreme risk aversion is the order of the day.
We are freaking our kids out–not that Democrats care, if that’s what it takes to get them back in power–and there will be a price to pay for it.
This behavior by the orcas has never been reported before, it’s really quite scary, and nobody knows why the orcas are doing it. One yacht reported being rammed by a single orca “at least 15 times,” disabling the engine and the steering gear. The yacht had to be towed into port.
“Several boats sustained serious damage,” including injuries to their crews, ran another report.
Scientists may be baffled, but the sages at the left-wing British noozepaper, The Guardian, are not. Only “51 days to save the Earth!” ‘Cause of Man-Made Climate Change, see. ‘Cause every year is, like, the hottest year ever. And if those Paris Climate Accords don’t go through, we’re all, like, doomed.
If they stopped short of calling for the Green New Deal, it’s only because the UK doesn’t have one yet.
Meanwhile, we don’t know why the orcas are banging into yachts. And there’s something else we don’t know, a bigger something:
Just how hard are the orcas trying?
(Actually it sounds like something in a “Bell Mountain” book…)
Here we had a couple of credentialed scientists, in an official scientific publication, with a peer-reviewed paper that said it’s okay to lie about Climate Change if that’s how you get people to do what you want them to do.
Hint: if your town has a “climate action plan,” you need to live somewhere else.
Furthermore, the council has promised to convert its “fleet” of vehicles to 100% electric by 2030. Where do these nitwits think electricity comes from? Shut down all fossil fuel production and see what happens to your electric power.
Yeahbut, yeahbut! Cambridge University has banned meat, too! And they’re a university, chock-full of Real Smart People!
We’d make out better by banning universities.
A personal note: We went to Whole Foods today to buy filet mignon for our anniversary dinner tomorrow, and guess what? The place was closed due to a power outage.
You can’t have modern civilization without electricity; and you can’t have electricity without fossil fuels.
Let’s face it–the classic hoaxes of the 19th century–like the Cardiff Giant–look like absolutely nothing, compared to the hoaxes of the 21st. “Systemic Racism” is catching up fast, but “Man-Made Climate Change” is still in the lead.
Those bleak days of the Obama presidency were the longest eight years I ever saw. And it’ll take a whole generation or more to repair the damage done–if we can ever repair it. The poisons that man injected into America are hatching out today.
Of course, in 2020 you’re lucky if you can see a doctor at all. Maybe if you claimed COVID-19 broke your finger, you might get some attention. My wife needs to see a doctor and her doctor seems to have taken the noon balloon.
Right now Racism is the Democrats’ poker hand; but they’ve still got Global Warming/Climate Change on the table, ready to use against us at a moment’s notice.
Remember! National perfection can only be achieved by giving unheard-of powers to the most flagrantly imperfect people in the country.
It’s full of nerve-racking language. “The Doomsday Glacier… crumbling ice and rapidly rising seas could spell disaster for a warming planet… a future global disaster… an ice chunk the size of Pennsylvania… Ice Apocalypse…Just one degree of change is a big deal to a glacier…” And so on. How are we supposed to sleep at night?
And it’s all Donald Trump’s fault (of course!), for not accepting as gospel the various pronouncements of the International Panel on Climate Change–and gee wiz, they’ve got computer models and everything!
Only “deep and rapid cuts in carbon pollution, to slow the warming” can save us. And if you think that means no more private jets, no more stretch limos, no more Martha’s Vineyard mansions, no more pricey pow-wows at Davos for the globalist fat cats–man, you need to think again! You, not they, will be called upon to give up your cars, your air conditioning, and lots and lots of things that separate modern life from the Middle Ages.
