Bat Soup Virus Shows We Need A Modern Socialist Economy For Well-being Or Something

Nope, the Cult of Climastrology won’t give up on their push to make Coronavirus all about ‘climate change’ fixes, forgetting that things are already starting to recover and Warmists do not practice what they preach

Coronavirus shows why we need an economy designed for wellbeing

We have been starkly reminded of the importance of our health – both physical and mental. During lockdown, we have missed giving and receiving affection with friends and family who don’t live with us. We worry about the gap in our childrens’ schooling.

We might miss going to work, feeling like we have a purpose, and having the time or space to do the things we enjoy. We dislike our freedoms being constrained and feeling unable to influence the decision making of local and national governments.

Which is interesting, since these same Warmists were also part of the group telling people to STAY HOME OR YOU’LL KILL GRANDMA, effectively wanting the economy destroyed. They couldn’t have possibly have had an ulterior motive, right?

As we move forwards, we should consider maintaining some of these new approaches to satisfying our needs, and we will certainly want to change others. But crucially, we now know we have the capacity to change the way we satisfy our needs – so that every individual has a decent standard of living, and we live safely within the environmental limits of our planet.

Just say it already, you want a hardcore leftist government run economic system. Stop beating around the bush.

Before the pandemic we had become too focused on the means by which we satisfy our needs, rather than on our needs themselves. At a personal level, we focused on increasing our income and wealth, whilst ignoring some of our core needs by working too much so we could consume things that don’t make us happy. At a societal level, we focused on increasing GDP, without realising that it is not possible to separate increased economic activity from increased environmental pressures.

Of course, stark reductions in income make the situation all the more dire. But it is not the lack of money in itself that is a problem, it is the fact that a lack of money can prevent us from satisfying our needs in our current economy. Lack of money can prevent us from buying food, paying rent or utilities, socialising with friends – the things we need to live well. (snip)

If we want to build back better after the pandemic, to tackle the climate crisis alongside inequality and deprivation, it is clear that we must not go back to relying on our past methods of satisfying needs. They were leading us to stark social and environmental issues, with not enough progress being made in terms of emissions reductions or poverty reduction, for example.

They just can’t help themselves. It is also interesting they Warmists always want to tell Other People how to lead their lives, and are willing to get Government to force those lifestyle changes.

A majority of people want us to prioritise wellbeing over GDP, according to a recent YouGov poll. The time is ripe for decision-makers to start involving their citizens more meaningfully and start listening. A focus on wellbeing will ensure we do not lose sight of what is truly important, while finding out the best ways to get there, together.

That poll is for the U.K. Perhaps they should give it a whirl, serving as the experimental group to show us that this doesn’t work. Did we all enjoy the test drive of a climate cultist enacted policy world?

    Teach: you want a hardcore leftist government run economic system.

    Can you define what you think “a hardcore leftist government run economic system” entails?

    Didn’t think so.

    Is Switzerland and example? Denmark? Finland? Israel? New Zealand?

    Don’t you believe that the American workers who have built this nation should share in the riches?

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    The greatest threat to hardcore unfettered capitalism is that millions of Americans will realize that they can live more simply. Much work can be done remotely. Much business travel is unnecessary. Necessities can be bought online and delivered. Fewer trips, fewer meals out, fewer “work” clothes, fewer shopping trips, fewer department stores and fewer malls.

      First of all you ignorant fool there is no such thing as “hardcore unfettered capitalism” anywhere on earth and never has been. Even the floor of the NY stock exchange has rules, so it’s “fettered”. Secondly, what makes you thing that work being done remotely, much business travel unnecessary and buying online is bad for capitalism and is in any way living more simply? It’s a change in the paradigm, not a surrender to communism. Now fewer trips,meals out, work clothes, shopping trips,dept. stores and malls will cripple and eliminate jobs and businessmen galore. Is it better? I guess if you like Big Online Monopolies like Amazon it’s great. Not so great if you on a Hallmark store.

      But as we all know, things change and shit happens. We don’t need a million buggy whips anymore either. Every advance has it’s winners and losers. But if you believe the concentration of wealth and economic power in a few online MegaGiants is good, I suggest you think again.

      Trump 2020 Or you’ll be electing Amazon to rule you.

    50 center defending his CCP CHINA COMMUNIST GOVERNMENT.

    A FAR LEFTIST EXAMPLE WOULD BE CHINA, CUBA, VENEZUELA, IRAN, PAKISTAN, IRAQ before HUSSEIN WAS DEFEATED.

    These countries you list are countries that have liberal policies that are indeed leftist but use capitalism as their model in order to fund their wish lists.

    Hardcore leftist society would entail.

    NO COPS
    NO GUNS
    NO UPPER CLASS
    WELFARE FOR ALL
    FREE COLLEGE
    FREE HOUSING
    GUARANTEED INCOME
    SINGLE PARTY SYSTEM
    AUTHORITARIAN GOVERNMENT
    EXTREMELY HIGH TAXES.
    ELIMINATION OF 1ST AMENDMENT
    ELIMINATION of the ELECTORAL COLLEGE
    ELIMINATION of the SECOND AMENDMENT
    STATES RIGHTS ELIMINATED

    Want me to go on? One only has to look at the wish list being put forth by the current protestors the progressive left and the DNC to understand what true far leftism means in this country.

    What is funny about progressives is that they are almost ALL WHITE UPPER CLASS COLLEGE GRADUATES WITH A TRUST FUND and the people on the left are supposed to IDENTIFY with these people.

    The white people who are kneeling with blacks don’t really give a shit about blacks, they have an agenda that does not include blacks. It includes paying off their 250,000 dollar school loans and getting a guaranteed job because they followed the DNC’s advice and went to school when Obama had no fuking clue how to add jobs to America.

    And don’t get me started on his putting people on 100 percent VA disability and SSDI disability to get them off the rolls to bring down unemployment. OR TELLING THEM TO GO TO COLLEGE where communist professors paid by CHINA can fuking BRAIN WASH them with commies BS to get them off the rolls.

    And don’t get me started on reducing full time from 40-30 hours per week to bring the unemployment rate down even further.

    ANYONE WITH HALF A BRAIN UNDERSTANDS OBAMA’s RECOVERY WAS A SHAM and MAGIC SHOW!!!!! Leftism at its finest.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Klem,

      That’s what I thought you guys believed, or at least campaign for trump on.

      No one is suggesting communism for America. Even the most extreme proposals align with social and economic policies of Western Europe. NuCons love them some “competition” as long as the system is rigged in their favor.

      By all means “go on” with your list, most of which are false claims intended on frightening Americans into voting for the most authoritarian president in US history. Why? Because nuCons do not support democracy but want want THEIR autocrat in power.

      Why do nuCons always reach back in history to misinform about President Obama? That’s rhetorical.

        Once again your graphs are bullshit.

        OBAMA put 5 million unemployed ON SSDI and VA DISABILITY.

        NINE MILLION WENT TO COLLEGE AND WERE TAKEN OFF THE ROLLS.

        FULL TIME WAS REDUCED FROM 40 HOURS TO 30 HOURS.

        Oct 22, 2012 · In other words, an employer calculates the hours an employee works during at least a three-month period, determining if they employee has worked 30 hours or more per week on average. If the employee meets the 30-hour threshold, they are counted as full-time for at least six months.

        5.4 Million Join Disability Rolls Under Obama. A record 5.4 million workers and their dependents have signed up to collect federal disability checks since President Obama took office, according to.

        LET US NOT FORGET::

        Credits his administration for what he said are “record … college enrollment rates.”
        Fundraiser for the DNC – Monday, August 15, 2016

        You can put up any magic shit show graph you want. The economy was in taters after Obama left. Because he hid everyone under the couch until Trump arrived and he sure as hell didnt help a single black man or woman as he kissed corporate ass and paid back mega donors.

    Interesting graph. It shows that in EIGHT YEARS IN OFFICE hussein could not get the jobs level back to where it was when HE ENTERED OFFICE. Good work, Magic Negro.

    It took ONLY FOUR YEARS for The Great Trump to fially get us back to where hussein started. And now the leftists in blue states and cities have ruined the economy again and once again blame The Great Trump for them closing down their small businesses. LIARS! All of you.

    It’s funny, no matter where the Democrat is even in cities run by Democrats for 50,60,70 years they ALWAYS blame the nearest Republican when the SHTF.

    You are weaklings, cowards, lousy leaders and most of al big fat LIARS!

    All you clowns have are lies and hate. It must suck to be you.

    Trump 2020 Or we’ll all me as miserable as the leftists are.
