A good read from James Delingpole. Here’s the wrap up
All those environmentalists, for example, telling us that they’re acting in the interests of future generations. No they’re not – and it’s time we stopped letting them get away with pretending otherwise. Every new economy-sapping tax or regulation they introduce, every acre of rainforest or farmland they divert to biofuels, every percentage point of extra cost they add needlessly to the price of energy in their pointless quest for renewables, is like a boot in the face of our children and grandchildren. “No you can’t have a job. No you can’t have as high a standard of living as recent generations. Yes you will have to endure an era of low growth, increased government meddling in your life, and – quite likely – a period of riots, hyperinflation, possibly even war.”
The same applies to all the usual anti-freedom, anti-growth, anti-Western-civilisation suspects – the Occupy crowd who seem to think the solution is more of the government intervention that got us into this mess in the first place; the students whining for more free money to fund their mostly worthless degrees; the safety Nazis clamouring for the government to blow more of our tax dollars trying to abolish the natural frailty of the human form. And yes, it applies very much to those vicious, embittered, self-righteous disability rights activists who hounded Philip Hensher for speaking no more than truth.
It’s time we lovers of liberty stood up to the fascist bullies who would steal our livelihoods, our freedoms and our right to self determination and self expression. You with me, people? You too, Philip?
I’m with you. Unfortunately, these same fascists, er, Progressives, control the majority of the media, government bureaucracies, and educational institutions. They control the unions. They’re shrill and screeching, loud and obnoxious. It’s hard to fight all that without become just as loud.
