The funniest thing about this whole global warming moralistic hysteria is that the Liberals don't actually take it seriously themselves. When they brought in mask mandates, they didn't hesitate for one second to consider the environmental impact of mass mask consumption. Its the same for all the other Covid measures. If Green house gas production was really a serious problem wouldn't you consider the environmental impact of the health care of very sick people. If you really believe that Covid had nothing to do with the biological warfare department of China's National Socialist government. If you really believe that its unthinkable that Covid could have come out of a lab, then isn't Covid, Gaia, "Mother Earth's" way of "fighting back and of restoring balance?
Whether its the massive expansion of the pharmaceutical - sickness industrial complex, the massive expansion of the Cultural Marxist - Education industrial complex, the health and safety industry or the burden of the diversity commissars and their demands for the employment of the inexperienced, the unskilled and the incompetent to fulflll their identity quotas, the Liberals never give a hoot about AGW or the environment when its something they want.
Now the good @Potemkin has complained that so many of my posts have a carping moralising quality these days. I can't remember his exact words. Now I won't say his criticism of me is totally without merit. What I would say in my defence though, is that what I write here is not just a response to the other forum members but also the numerous Guardian, independent and BBC articles and programmes I passively consume. The whole political culture these days is one of Manichean moralising. To some extent Manichean moralising has to be fought with Manichean moralising, in the same way that you can't fight a nuclear attack with conventional weapons. I don't see the highly respected Greta Thunberg engaging in unilateral moralistic disarmament anytime soon.
While I support the impeachment of Salvador Allende, no executive Presidencies, proportional representation and short fixed term parliaments would have been preferable.
