The Greens want to return us to the pre-industrial age, and we’re all supposed to accept it. Ayn Rand had these people pegged over 50 years ago. From Paul Rosenberg at freemansperspective.com:
Those of us who aren’t mainlining TV and Facebook have a fairly clear understanding that the rulership of the West is in trouble: their debts are far beyond payable, while the global East and South are starting to pull away. Having only two primary options – system collapse or reduced standards of living – they are opting for the second.
The great challenge facing rulership, then, is to make their flocks accept being poorer… to get used to being poor. And to make that happen, they’re promoting a new religion, which we can simply call Green.
The real purpose of the Green faith is for you to welcome lower standards of living.
For example, “sustainable agriculture,” no matter how reverently it’s name is intoned, actually means “lower crop yields and fewer animals per acre.” All the rest is misdirection… “Boob bait for the Bubbas,” as an old senator used to say.
