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...

Eco-Marxism wins in Canada

Euro-styled Marxist eco-activism takes over Canada's governing party.

by StFerdIII

It says a lot about the politics of a country when its major ruling party – one that has governed the land for most of the last 100 years – elects an eco-crusader as its new leader. Western Europe has many problems and one of the key elements of its moribund economy and fainéant military and foreign policy, is the consensus politics forced onto the body politic by radical ‘eco-greenism’. Nothing gets done in Europe due to an absurd system called ‘proportional representation’ and because in most of these coalitions the eco-Marxists hold a balance of power. In Europe it is a given that the ‘green’ party opposes everything. It appears that Canada, a follower of socialist Euro-nonsense, is deciding to go down the same sorry path of eco-irrelevancy.

Only two issues are of significance in Canada’s ruling Liberal party selection of Stephane Dion to lead it into the brave new eco-world of socialist meddling and envrio-compassion. The first and most obvious observation is that Mr. Dion is French-Canadian. The Canadian political-economy is dominated by the French, though they comprise only 15 % of the population. Electorally the Quebecois vote is mandatory to win national power and Dion’s selection reflects the reality that Canada’s unnatural empire, centered in Toronto, is run by the French.

A second more callous observation is that ‘eco-greenism’ which is what Stephane Dion represents, is a dangerous mix of Euro-Marxist nonsense and anti-reality rhetoric. Formerly an environmental minister there is nothing that Dion would not like to tax in order to save ‘green spaces’ and our ‘children’s, children’s’ future. Upon becoming leader of Canada’s natural authoritarian party, Dion immediately told a press conference that he, “wants to find a way to make Alberta's oil production more sustainable so it can continue to make "megatonnes of money" in the future.” For the eco-marxist warrior the word ‘sustainable’ means ‘subject to higher rates of taxation’. While emotionally satisfying, damaging the economy, reducing innovation and technology and imperiling jobs is actually unsustainable and does nothing to alleviate pressures on the environment.

Dion a former professor and longtime Cabinet minister and eco-warrior is an arrogant Euro-French styled ‘intellectual’. Like other so-called ‘thinkers’ Dion and his ilk are convinced that the mommy-state knows best. Europe has been beset with such ideologues as convinced of their own infallibility, as they are of the importance and relevance of state intervention and management to keep the world ‘green’. The impact on Europe has been profound: high taxes; sinking economies; a deadening state induced apathy and eco-policies that militate against any and all development that lies outside of the big business-big unions-big political machine axis that controls corrupt European governance.

Green politics is in essence very bad news for the economy, and for society.

Kyoto, the imposter of ‘global warming’ or ‘global cooling’ or ‘climate change’ or whatever the scare du jour is, emanates from Euro-green politics. Kyoto has no basis in scientific fact and is a European green political project designed to make the US economy uncompetitive by raising its energy costs and forcing the US to transfer billions of dollars to dirty third world nations. It is European green political hypocrisy at its worst.

Green taxes distort and mangle the European economy. Taxes on autos and trucks by weight, size of tire rubber, distance traveled, on gas consumed, along with various other taxes on all matter of items, energy usage, means that European products are far more expensive than in North America and European economies far less competitive. Greens are against nuclear power; clean burning coal plants; and garbage incineration to generate electricity. Greens do support of course ‘new’ methods of power generation that have no relevance to support a modern economy – wind, solar, and battery power. How quaint. Try powering your modern world on those ideas.

Stephane Dion as an intellectual should be immediately distrusted. The Canadian media would do its citizens a favor by investigating the distorting and malevolent forces of green politics in Europe and the negative impact that eco-Marxism has had on the European economy. It should also investigate and clearly lay out the costs to Dion’s eco-Marxist nightmare of a ‘green’ society, replete with high taxes; Kyoto regulations and sur-charges all married to a declining, job losing economy.

Eco-Marxism might find favor with the elite and the university crowd, but it is a dangerous anti-reality program designed to throttle a modern economy. While emotionally satisfying the European eco-Marxist experiment clearly indicates eco-politics is a failure. Dion’s green activism and eco-Marxist program is about as relevant to the real world as the claim that pagan stone-age Indian societies were the apotheosis of mankind’s development.

It is singularly perplexing that ‘educated’ populations buy into the eco-Marxist fantasy. Green Marxism is just another bastard step child of political Marxism - the sooner that countries reject the eco-Marxist agenda, the better off they will be.
