Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Gab@StFerdinandIII -

Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Corona, 'The Science' or Scientism, Islam, the State, the cult of Gender Fascism, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion...

by StFerdIII


O'Clowna and the Eco-Fascists using fraud er 'science' to promote a non-existent globaloneywarming, in order to expand government [more taxes, more regulations], buy votes [greenies]; and fund crony-capitalism in which friends and family of the plutocracy have their 'green tech' firms subsidized by government, as they go inevitably into bankruptcy.

The problem begins with the issue of government picking winners and losers in the first place. Venture capitalist firms exist for this very reason, and they choose what to invest in by looking at companies’ business models and deciding if they are worthy. When the government plays venture capitalist, it tends to reward companies that are connected to the policymakers themselves or because it sounds nice to “invest” in green energy.


Billions wasted each year on eco-nonsense which struts around as 'alternative energy'. Dumb.
