The Illusion of Control

I’ve been thinking about this for days. Maybe it’ll grow into a Newswithviews column. Maybe your comments will inspire me. Pitch in, everybody.

When Jeff Goldblum as Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park says “Boy, do I hate being right all the time,” he’s talking about his repeated warnings that the dinosaur park is going to fail spectacularly–and of course he’s right. Everything goes wrong.

And of course the park’s creators are totally flabbergasted because they were 100% sure they had everything, and I do mean everything, totally under control. In fact they had nothing under control.

As Christians we’re expected to know that God is in control of His creation. We’re lucky if we can control ourselves for five minutes, never mind managing the world.

But the delusion of this age is the illusion of control, the old con game Satan ran on Eve, “Ye shall be as gods.” In fact, think the fat-heads who believe this, they’d better be as gods because the real God does not exist, it’s all up to them to keep the planet spinning, etc. All up to them! And these are people who’d be hard-put to organize a game of hopscotch.

Rather than suffer the shock of coming to grips with their limitations, control freaks just think bigger and bigger. A lousy dinosaur park? Peanuts! They’re after global government. They aspire to micro-manage the climate. They’ll do all those things God should’ve done, but couldn’t–end war, end poverty, no more disease, everybody equal, free college education, blah-blah.

If that doesn’t scare you, what will?


Toldja! ‘97% Consensus’ on Climate Change is a Crock

See the source image

“Only global government can save us!”

Not that we should be at all surprised by this, but a libertarian group, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, has filed a formal complain against NASA for the space agency’s 2013 claim, endlessly repeated since then, that “97% of scientists” believe human activity is the chief cause of “climate change” (http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3763274/posts).

NASA arrived at that figure, CEI charges, by simply ignoring some 8,000 published scientific papers whose authors were “undecided” about the issue.

The Obama administration corrupted everything it touched, including NASA. Like all the rest of the Climbit Change Alarmist Marching & Chowder Society, NASA fudged the figures to come up with the political statement that they wanted. Science and politics is always such a bad mix.

Don’t expect NASA to recant until all the Obama appointees are weeded out. Then maybe the space agency can get back to exploring space.

Until then, they’re just another bunch of left-wing liars making a play for global government.


We’re Doomed! (again)

(“We are so ****ed…”)

I hope you’re sitting down for this.

According to research by the University of Alaska, “If the current rates of greenhouse gas emissions remain unchanged,” the vast isle of Greenland may be ice-free–

–By the year 3000! (https://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-blogs/climatechange/greenland-ice-sheet-could-completely-melt-out-by-the-year-3000/70008659)

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.


‘A Degrading Form of Government’ (2013)

Image result for images of men prostrating themselves to kings

It was not God’s will for us to be under kings, emperors, dictators, or tyrants. That was fallen man’s idea.

https://leeduigon.com/2013/08/21/a-degrading-form-of-government/

Freedom is God’s idea–and how the fallen world resists it! To this day, and in all the days leading up to it, there are and have been puffed-up fools who want their foot on everybody’s neck. But the armed dictators of that unhappy 20th century have given way to the grinning globalists of the 21st.

They’re all the same, under the skin. You always wind up with piles of dead bodies, and the landscape full of barbed wire.

God defend us.


Brexit Do-Over Coming?

See the source image

I think she heard that.

It’s hard for an American to make much sense of British politics; but for what it’s worth, Prime Minister Theresa May has resigned, effective June 7, they’re gonna need a new one, they still haven’t figured out exactly how they’re supposed to secede from the European Union–and assorted UK politicians are clamoring for a “second referendum” on leaving the E.U. (https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/05/28/labour-diane-abbott-calls-second-referendum/)

They didn’t like the way the first one turned out.

Meanwhile, in the E.U. elections just concluded, the “Brexit Party” won big in Britain. Any  indication that the government is serious about a do-over is sure to raise hell. The Labour Party of course wants one, but we are told that there’s a major conflict over that within Labour’s ranks.

You think we have trouble with just two political parties. The Brits have a whole raft of them.

The problem is that when they held the first referendum, “Remain” was supposed to win–sort of like Hillary Clinton was supposed to win here, in 2016–so the globalists never bothered to draw up a workable plan to carry out the people’s wishes if they voted to leave the E.U. But they did. And one wonders whether the government ever had any intention of abiding by the result of the referendum. Globalists don’t much care for referendums that don’t go their way.

In fact, throughout Europe, the globalists fared very badly in the elections, with patriotic national parties regaining lost ground–enough so that the Red Pope is calling everybody racists and biggits for wanting to preserve their own countries. How would he fare, do you think, if they held a referendum on his papacy?

There is only one Person who has the right to govern the world, and that is Jesus Christ. Until He sets His throne upon the earth, God has given us nations as a protection against any power-mad cabal that seeks to dominate the whole shebang. A world government would be a global tyranny.


What a Load of Crap

Image result for images of orban with hungary flag

What? No more funds for Gender Studies? You’ve got to be kidding!

You’ve got to give the Far Left Crazy credit: owning the media, they don’t let it sit unused. They use it each and every day, to try to lure normal people into folly.

Today I couldn’t run a search without getting, on the Bing search page, a come-on for an article with the bloviating title, Viktor Orban’s War on the Intellect, from the Far Left Crazy rag, The Atlantic.

https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2019/06/george-soros-viktor-orban-ceu/588070/?utm_source=feed

The author’s hysteria was showing: “Like Pol Pot or Josef Stalin–” oh, please–“Orban dreams of liquidating the intelligentsia…”

How, just how, was Orban, the president of Hungry, going to do that?

Why, by withdrawing public funds from universities! By refusing to pay for any more Gender Studies degree programs! That’s how he’s gonna be “liquidating the intelligentsia.” Not a dry eye in the house…

Where is it written that any country has to lavish public funding upon a whole class of academic nonentities whose only function is to serve as a Greek chorus of yes-men to the Far Left Crazy? In our country, that would be the Democrat Party. In Europe, assorted globalists. Same thing. And putting a stop to the gravy train is the same as “liquidating” them?

But see, Orban is the bad guy and his efforts to stop wasting money on the universities is only the latest manifestation of the world-wide struggle between “human rights” and “nationalism.” What bunk. This is a fine example of a false dichotomy. Dude, you has to choose! You can have either human rights, or your own country–not both. Only a bunch of college professors would think we couldn’t see through that. But sane people know that having their own countries is protection against the kind of incredible tyranny that would accompany any global government. The dichotomy is not only false, but has an evil intent.

The author laments President Orban’s effort to “chase” Central European University out of Hungary. It’s a private university owned and operated by rent-a-riot king George Soros–the Jabba the Hutt of globalism. The villain who wants to “remake” nations according to his own authoritarian dreams. Our nation, too–big-time. But we are here asked to believe that President Orban is the bad guy and Soros, that spider, the good guy. It is profoundly insulting, to be asked such a thing.

What Orban is doing in Hungary would be a very, very good thing to be doing here! He is pulling public money out of universities. We ought to do the same!

Do these self-anointed fat-heads honestly think we can’t do without them? Let them put whatever they think they have to offer on the open market, and see who buys it.

I’m betting hardly anyone.


Patriots vs. Oligarchs: We’re Not Alone

Marine Le Pen (2017-03-24) 01 cropped.jpg

Globalists want to shut down nation-states and have a global government. But there’s still resistance, even in Europe, and it’s not going away.

European patriots gathered in Prague this weekend to proclaim their dedication to preserving their own nations and resisting the European Union’s drive to dominance. Among the highlighted speakers was Marie Le Pen, former candidate for president of France (https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/04/29/le-pen-says-eu-same-goal-ussr-reduce-political-legal-capacities-resistance/).

Le Pen laid it on the line. The EU, she said, has “the same goal” as the Soviet Union: to weaken the nation-states, and to “reduce political and legal capacities of resistance… We are the resistance!” The EU, she said, is “for the benefit of an oligarchy of civil servants and experts.”

It’s not just President Trump standing between us and an all-devouring global state. Europe is full of leaders–and voters–who understand their peril and are laboring to save us from it.

But the oligarchy has had several decades in which to solidify its power, and it won’t go gently into that good night–as we see in our own country, in the efforts of the Deep State to stage a coup against our lawfully elected president. In France we saw the French nooze media successfully push the candidacy of statist throne-squatter Emmanuel Macron, by painting him out to be a nice safe “centrist” and branding Le Pen a “far right” extremist. Because she still believes in France, and wants to save it.

The last serious effort to create a global state was confounded by God, when He thwarted the building of the Tower of Babel.

God knew what He was doing when He divided our language and created nations. For all their faults, our nation-states protect us from the greater tyrannies that strive to rule the world. Alexander, Napoleon, and Hitler, and so many others, tried to do it by force. They failed. So their spiritual successors do it through secrecy, mischievous laws, and, in the language of Daniel, “by flattery.”

Anyway, it’s good to know we’re not alone.


The Arrogance of Ignorance

See the source image

Hey, boys ‘n’ girls! Oops, sorry–shoulda said “purple penguins,” ’cause there’s like 50 different genders. Anyway–wanna *Save The Planet*? Of course you do!

The perky publicist has invited me to review a book by a sage, all of 17 years old, on how to  “stop catastrophic damages to the place we all call home.” How to “stop” it, eh? Ya mean, like hitting the “off” switch?

I wonder if we can guess where this precious little tyke is coming from. Hmm… Here’s a chapter called “Bye, Bye Big Business.” It’s about how “major corporations” stop Climbit Change legislation and “how young people can prevent this from happening.” Doubtless by electing Far Left Crazy Democrats and enacting the Green New Deal… just as soon as the Constitution is repealed.

I hope it goes without saying that I don’t mean for this to be insulting to teenagers in general. I really like their company, they’re good for me. I love it that a few teens have joined this blog, and I hope more will follow.

But having been a 17-year-old myself, I think I can state with perfect confidence that it would have been the height of folly to take me, at that age, for any kind of public policy adviser. So easy to be taken for a ride by one’s college professors, et al. And when adults praise you, it goes right to your head. Just tell us we’re really smart, and we’ll eat out of your hand. Been there, done that.

I’m not going to give this kid’s name, in hopes that he’ll grow out of this, nor the title of the book, because I don’t want anyone to blame me if they buy it.

All you need to know about “Climate Science” is that Far Left Crazy sees it as their ticket to a global government.


‘Help Wanted: International Monetary Fund Honcho’ (2014)

You’d smile, too, if you got off without jail time

Two years after this piece was posted, a French court found Christine Lagarde guilty of negligence, but didn’t bother to impose a penalty. After all, anyone could lost half a billion euros.

https://leeduigon.com/2014/08/28/help-wanted-international-monetary-fund-honcho/

As president of the International Monetary Fund, as the world’s highest-profile banker, Lagarde succeeded some guy who was a sexual predator: used to chase chamber maids all around his hotel room. All Chrissie did was let a crooked business magnate walk off with half a billion euros.

Ms. Lagarde and her predecessor are living proof that global government is a very bad idea. A sinner can do damage as the mayor of a small town. As head honcho of a world bank, she can do a lot more damage. We put limitations on government because if we don’t, the government winds up killing us.

The Horror of Sheer Godlessness

See the source image

I wish I could remember which of you recommended this movie to us. Feel free to remind me.

The Circle is a 2017 techno-thriller starring Emma Watson (Harry Potter) and Tom Hanks (Far Left Crazy). It received an awful lot of bad reviews (somebody called it “the reason people hate Hollywood”), but I would call it a timely, worthwhile horror movie. One might even say an appalling horror movie.

Watson plays a young woman, nobody special, who lands a job with The Circle, the world’s biggest media corporation, a social media colossus reminiscent of Google, not to mention Scientology meets Amway–with the Tower of Babel and Revelation thrown in. Hanks, playing the lord high CEO of The Circle, sums up its philosophy succinctly: “Knowing things is good. But knowing everything is better!”

And so you have this hi-tech amoeba spreading out to engulf everybody, and we’re all cool with that because once the sum total of human knowledge and experience is gathered into one place and digitized, etc., “We will reach our full potential” (God forbid!) and be able to do everything and solve every single problem in the world. Indeed, there will be nothing too trivial for The Circle to sink its fangs into. There will be no more privacy: because having a personal experience not shared by everybody in the world is “selfish.”

But this is where Satan takes us, with his promise that “ye shall be as gods.” He always takes us there! A less deserving object of worship than ourselves should be, for anyone not totally off his chump, impossible to imagine.

It’s almost as hard to imagine how horrible it would be to live in a world from which privacy has literally been eradicated. The Circle has even succeeded in making membership mandatory and getting the government to require everyone to vote–a little fantasy which President *Batteries Not Included used to kick around.

The Circle abounds with babble about “democracy,” abundantly demonstrating why our country’s founders had a horror of it, and did everything in their power to give us a republic instead. Or you could read The Peloponnesian War, Thucydides’ eyewitness account of the political hysteria that led to the civic suicide of Athens.

Maybe we don’t want to be “connected” with everyone else in the world. Maybe we don’t want to know what Joe Blow in Brazzaville had for supper that night. Maybe we absolutely no way want a global government, or a global anything for that matter.

The last time we tried this, building the Tower of Babel, God came down and confounded our language. It was an act of mercy. He was protecting us from those who would devour us alive.

If He has to do it again, it won’t be pretty.
