The nice thing about belonging to a cult, is that the cult's ideology explains everything. No thinking is involved. If one looks to explain why cultured people would support ideologies as evil, ridiculous, and fascistically intolerant as Nazism, Communism or Islam the answer is simple. Belonging to the cult removes thinking, marks the follower as superior, and replaces science, thought and energy, with lazy subservience. Why bother to think and act when the leadership will do it for me? So it goes with the Eco-Marxist cult.
Educated Germans supported Hitlerism for many reasons but one appeal was its inevitable superiority – based in large part on Evolutionary ideals. The great Nazi, dialectical race-based program was unstoppable, as long as the aryan race supported it, and the Nazi cult would expunge the 'bad genes' from the human race, carrying Evolutionary 'law' forward. Considering that Aryans were a race historically located in central Asia reveals the bathos of ignorance that most cults revel in. The German people ignored Nazism's raging evil and twisted cultish nonsense in a bid for world superiority. There is little evidence that Hitlerism did not have the full support after 1936, of the German people.
With Communism and Islam the same can be said. Russian Communist imperialist ambition was part of a dialectical or inevitable process, where Communism would be the final stage of human organisation. This very weird idea had the full throated backing of literally hundreds of millions of people.
Islam is another bizarre cult, which like Nazism and Communism is drenched in lies, blood and hate. The pagan moon cult demands that the whole world submit to ritualised pre-7th century ideology, premised in part on rock worship. That any educated, sophisticated or mildly rational person would put up with such nonsense is rather depressing. Calling it a religion is an insult.
The Mother Earth Cult is little different in style, substance and threats, from other univeral cults. The only obvious difference is military power. Fascist paganisms such as Islam or Nazism or Communism, delight in murder, rape, war, and coercion. There is thankfully no military array [yet], behind the Eco-Marxist cult of Globaloney Warming. But state coericion is of course a very real, and quite destructive phenomenon.
State power is used in all sorts of ways to foster the Earth Mother cult onto unsuspecting populations. The Eco-cult follows a similar plan which can be found in Islam, Communism or Hitlerism. The only thing missing is a capital city, but surely at some point that too will arise. There will be in the near term, a city or an area set up as the pilgrimmage point for the Globaloney Warming fanatics. Perhaps it will be the UN building; maybe an Arctic ice floe [full of cuddly polar bears]; or maybe a large dump [reflecting more accurately the mental capacity of its membership]; but nonetheless the day will come when the UN, the EU and the US State Department ' the three glorious horsemen of the apocolypse ' announce a Global Warming capital.
Outside of the lack of a capital the rest of the cult's program is there.
Like all other cults the Eco-Earth mother cult, demands subservience to a bizarre idea and the prostration of its followers to that ideal, and most importantly to the cult's leadership. The Earth mother cult has its leadership in the form of politicians, eco-alarmist groups, government alarmist departments and the UN. Thankfully as of yet, the Eco-Earth cult does not yet have a Mecca, a new Berlin, or a Moscow from which to emanate their anti-modern drivel and spool. But surely that day will come.
We know we have a cult on our hands with the Mother Earth club, because this cult demands three things that any rational person should oppose. First, it uses government power and coercion to put forward ONE point of view on what MIGHT be happening inside a very complicated set of natural climate phenomena. No debate please.
Second, it uses government funded propaganda to brainwash the young and ceaselessly broadcast some sort of inevitability ['if we don't act now..!?'] and through the tax and subsidy system, to punish wrong doers [those outside the cult] and reward supporters [grants, loans, professorships, subsidies etc.].
Third, it is a program of universal 'spirituality', one described in terms of a religious duty. The pagan irrational nature of such a claim is obvious. Mother Earth and her cares, including her raging fever, must replace the modern world. Out with Francis Bacon and the scientific method. In with pagan shamanism and a stone age mentality.
Is the earth warming? No. In actual fact since 1998 the earth has gotten cooler. 2003 saw the worst winter on record for Russia and Eastern Europe. As Bjorn Lomberg in his book 'Cool It' states, about 150.000 people die of cold each year in Europe ' a rate which seems to increase, not decrease. 2007 saw some of the coldest and longest winters in recent memory in parts of North America and Eur-Asia. Antarctica is magically growing and is at its greatest girth in history. Greenland's warmest day was in 1941. The warmest summer on record in Britain was actually 1783. And so on.
Does Co2 cause temperature changes. No. There is no direct correlation between Co2 and anything. From 1945 to 1975 Co2 emissions went up and mean temperatures went down. Since 1900 satellite readings reveal that the average surface temperature has gone up by 1 C ' hardly alarming and certainly not outside of historical experiences. 12000 years ago the earth was in the deep freeze of an ice age. Magically it receded and the earth grew warmer. How did that happen? Human activity? Come on.
It is sheer madness that anyone believes that human activity which has activated a mild increase of a natural gas comprising maybe 4% of the total in the atmosphere, has somehow given Mother Earth a raging fever. Natural biomass emissions constitute 96% of total Co2 emissions. The blast of a volcano will spew more Co2 into the biosphere than human activity will emit in 1000 years.
Yet the cult persists. Destroying the modern world to feel good about yourself, or boost your ego, because you have no road map, spiritual program, or a low feeling of self worth is not very intelligent. Allowing companies, politicians, and lobby groups to make excessive profits feeding off of ignorance and fear is not moral. Lying about dying polar bears, hurricanes, ice sheets, weather patterns is criminal. Supporting such a cult of disinformers is, in the main, an abdication of reason.
Wise up. Cults should be fought and destroyed wherever they appear. If you want to help Mother Earth, then clean up your local rivers and land, and stop projecting inane and irrational abstractions onto the rest of society. If you are too lazy to actually do something to help the environment, then at least have the good sense to shut up and stay silent on something as irrational as the idea that Co2 is causing the end of the world. Being a cult member is not a badge of honour.
