Today is Lenin’s birthday aka Earth Day. This is not a coincidence. Vaclav Klaus, former president of the Czech Republic, states it very clearly: “I see the current danger in environmentalism and especially in its strongest version, climate alarmism. My deep frustration has been exponentially growing in recent years by witnessing the fact that almost everything has already been said, that all rational arguments have been used, and that global-warming alarmism is still marching on…The largest threat to freedom, democracy, the market economy, and prosperity at the end of the 20th and at the beginning of the 21st century is no longer socialism…It is, instead, the ambitious, arrogant, unscrupulous ideology of environmentalism.”
“In the past 150 years(at least since Marx), the socialists have been very effectively destroying human freedom under humane and compassionate slogans, such as caring for man, ensuring social equity, and fostering social welfare. The environmentalists are doing the same under equally noble-minded slogans, expressing concern about nature more than people. In both cases, the slogans have been (and still are) just a smokescreen. In both cases, the movements were (and are) completely about power, about the hegemony of the ‘chosen ones’ (as they see themselves) over the rest of us, about the imposition of the only correct worldview (their own), about the remodeling of the world.”
You need to understand your enemy to defeat them. Happy Lenin’s birthday!
