Learning To Think Like A Progressive

Progressive newspapers like The Guardian publish pictures like this almost every week, purporting to show life-threatening pollution from electricity generation stations.

Then in the same issue, they promote electric cars (powered by the station above) as clean, green saviors of the environment.

And in the same issue, they promote this as being “green energy”

And in order to try to force their stupidity on other people, The Guardian is willing to publish blatantly fraudulent global warming articles from people like Dana Nuttercelli nearly every day.

It takes generations of hard work to create people this messed up.

    It gets worse, the printing presses used to print that stuff once caught fire too.
    All machines sometimes fail.

    That’s exactly what the Guardian does. They don’t do fair, balanced or impartial.
    It’s called propaganda.

      Unfortunately we somehow went from the Greatest Generation to the Stateist generation in three generations. The Greatest Generation was forged in the great depression and tempered by WW II and went on to make the most powerful and prosperous nation in human history. The Stateist generation was born into plenty and an age great promise because of the sacrifices and toil of the Greatest generation and like the spoiled children they were/are simply took and then demanded more and allowed the great promise and wealth to be squandered. There are only three reasons I hold out hope for this nation. Witnessing the great young men and women flock to the flag after 9/11 and then continue to do so after years of war and how they served with so much honor a bravery. And seeing the entrepreneurial spirit I do in so many places and so many faces of different heritage and backgrounds in my travels as a truck driver. And finally seeing so many fine qualities in my own Grandaughter. May she live well and prosper in a land of liberty.

        The common thread is the role of government. It changed during the greatest generation, but they were raised not to rely on it. However, each success generation has come to rely on it more and more. the extent of the damage that FDR did is just now coming to fruition.

        “The Greatest Generation was forged in the great depression and tempered by WW II and went on to make the most powerful and prosperous nation in human history.”

        Sadly, many of the same things that made the USA so successful during WWII and so powerful in the immediate aftermath, are the same things that later led to our national death as a Constitutional Republic. No need to go into details. Anyone who remembers Eisenhower’s farewell speech can follow the sequence.

    “It takes generations of hard work to create people this messed up.”

    I disagree. It takes hard work and exposure to proper philosophy to save men from believing the most ridiculous of falsehoods. “The most costly of all follies is to believe passionately in the palpably not true. It is the chief occupation of mankind.” ~ H.L. Mencken

    For example, these idiots think that they are “liberals” and yet the classical liberals believed the exact opposite of what these self-proclaimed “liberals” believe today.

    See what the classical liberals believed here: http://mises.org/library/what-classical-liberalism

    “Classical liberalism” is the term used to designate the ideology advocating private property, an unhampered market economy, the rule of law, constitutional guarantees of freedom of religion and of the press, and international peace based on free trade. Up until around 1900, this ideology was generally known simply as liberalism. The qualifying “classical” is now usually necessary, in English-speaking countries at least (but not, for instance, in France), because liberalism has come to be associated with wide-ranging interferences with private property and the market on behalf of egalitarian goals. This version of liberalism — if such it can still be called — is sometimes designated as “social,” or (erroneously) “modern” or the “new,” liberalism. Here we shall use liberalism to signify the classical variety.

    Those fools are better named “progressives” but even that is a problem since they are dead set against progress. They attack the western economies and technology at every opportunity: and they seemingly would like to see us all living a stone-age lifestyle. Can they be called “progressives”? They are collectivists who would like to see all of mankind (but not themselves) living in egalitarian misery.

    As an aside, I posted on the Classical Liberal’s biggest mistake here: http://markstoval.wordpress.com/2015/01/04/the-classic-liberals-and-their-mistake/

      The term ‘progressive’, is not about actual progress, but about progressing towards communism.

      • Gail Combs says:

        And here I thought it was about Progressing toward the New Serfdom or Neo-feudalism where the middle class has been made extinct much to the relief of the ruling elite who fear them.

        ‘The bourgeoisie, [middleclass] wherever it has got the upper hand, has put an end to all feudal, patriarchal, idyllic relations. It has pitilessly torn asunder the motley feudal ties that bound man to his ‘natural superiors,’ and has left remaining no other nexus between man and man than naked self-interest, callous ‘cash payment.’ It has drowned the most heavenly ecstasies of religious fervor, of chivalrous enthusiasm, of philistine sentimentalism, in the icy water of egotistical calculation. It has resolved personal worth into exchange value, and in place of the numberless indefeasible chartered freedoms, has set up that single, unconscionable freedom—Free Trade. In one word, for exploitation, veiled by religious and political illusions, it has substituted naked, shameless, direct, brutal exploitation.

        The bourgeoisie has stripped of its halo every occupation hitherto honored and looked up to with reverent awe. It has converted the physician, the lawyer, the priest, the poet, the man of science, into its paid wage laborers. [No wonder the ClimAstroligist fall for the ‘Cause’]

        The bourgeoisie has torn away from the family its sentimental veil, and has reduced the family relation to a mere money relation.” ― Karl Marx, The Communist Manifesto

        Rosa Koire a lesbian left wing Liberal Democrat and a Californian bureaucrat ‘gets it’ She describes the new Transit villages of Agenda 21.

        She also gave this excellent speech to a TEA Party group.

        At least some liberals have figured out it is not about treating people fairly but about enslaving them with their blind consent.

      However there has been a multi-generational effort as I have learned by reading about the system of government schooling that has spread around the world since the Prussians first created a system that produces fungible human resources. (see John Taylor Gatto’s work as well as “The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America”)

    My personal favorite is when the local paper shows “black” clouds of pollution rising when in fact, it is just a photo of condensation taken with the sun behind the cloud.

    “It takes generations of hard work to create people this messed up.” Yes, the process of “demoralization” as outlined by Yuri Bezmenov (ex-KGB) many years ago.

      Kent Clizbe also covered it in his book Willing Accomplices: How KGB Covert Influence Agents Created Political Correctness and Destroyed America from the point of view of a CIA operative.

    That same Guardian article gives the number of electric vehicles sold last year was 1200 out of 2.45m. Almost .05% of the market. That is ahead of Rolls-Royce in volume (from $310,000) but behind Bentley (from $210,000).
    In the UK buyers get a £5000 ($7800) subsidy on purchase, but still on the most popular model a purchaser would be about £5000 worse off over three years than buying a similar-sized Ford. What is more, an electric car has limited range, so for most families would only be a second car. With costs similar to a baby Merc, BMW or Audi, most people are being sensible and avoiding the things.
