Global Warming: Common Sense vs Progressive Educated Elites

See also

This writer is going to try to write this article in a manner to unify rank and file America around a consensus rather than to divide the masses along faux party lines. (A strategy our government, the tyrant class and Main Stream Media use for the purpose of dividing and conquering WE THE PEOPLE to prevent us from uniting against them)

Let us begin from the position that if Global Warming is real, this writer would be on board with implementing effective solutions to the problem. For that matter, this writer finds it somewhat humorous that persons aligned with the left half of the one and only 1 tyrant class pretending to be two major parties would believe mothers aligned with the right half of the tyrant class would not be equally concerned for their children's futures if Global Warming is established as true. (This writer previously used the term “Ruling Class”. Upon reflection, using the term “Ruling Class” implies “legitimate” aristocracy so going forward this writer will use the term “Tyrant Class”.)

This article is inspired by the UN’s recent warnings that global warming is accelerating that have again brought the issue to the fore front.

And for the past few Sundays, our Governments Main Stream Media have beat the propaganda drums via Sunday Morning Talk Shows such as Meet the Press and Face the Nation.

As always, pursuant to Natural Law, this writer leaves it to his reader to use their own observations and establish truth for themselves. In this article, this writer will first use Common Sense and his own observations to provide evidence which the writer believes refutes Global Warming, now known as Climate Change. Next, this writer will discuss some issues he has with the pontifications of the Educated Elites. And thirdly, this writer will provide evidence & inference which the writer believes exposes global warming as a trick and artifice to promote agenda of Progressivism. An agenda aimed at compromising WE THE PEOPLE’s unalienable Natural Law Property Rights through UN Agenda 21 and the proposed Carbon Tax Exchange.

In the course of doing so, this writer will assert that the Progressive “Common Core” Education Agenda is part of Progressive strategy of mental "conditioning" of the masses to accept Progressive policies that they would not otherwise accept. In short, this author believes the evidence and logic herein produced will call into question the legitimacy and integrity of the proponents of the existence of "Global Warming". (This writer respectfully submits to the reader that if you do not force yourself to understand the foundation and agenda of Progressivism, you will be unable to understand how you are being managed and manipulated into accepting your own enslavement.)

Because Progressives know Americans would reject their agenda if it were plainly laid out, Progressives are trying to pass it piecemeal.

COMMON SENSE AND PERSONAL OBSERVATIONS

You know those neat tricks and observations they use to catch the bad guys in Main Stream Media TV shows? You need to start using them on your government @AmericanSpring #teaparty #occupy

Don Mashak on Twitter @DMashak(truncations expanded)

Let us first point out that normal weather is just the average of extremes. Scary as it may be to consider, our planet is just a chunk of rock circling a molten nuclear reaction. There is no guarantee that all the variables that coincided a day ago, a year ago, 10 years or an Eon ago to produce a certain weather conditions will again happen to produce the same result on earth. Ergo, normal weather is just the average of extremes. The best that can be said that for some regions of the earth, the temperature tends to be higher in the summer than it is in the winter. Further, each of our lives is so short; none of us are qualified to assert what normal Earth weather is based on our own experiences.

That having been said, this writer believes that it is settled science that at more than 1 point in the Earth’s history, there have been periods of time we refer to as “Ice Ages” http://bit.ly/1lqDWMw. And a “Mini Ice Age” http://bit.ly/1jWzxNB from 1300AD to 1870AD. Now, for the first 5 Ice Ages, this writer asserts there were no man made by-products that either caused the cooling or the warming. Therefore, at least five extreme “warmings” and “coolings” of the earth have occurred with no possible human causation.

Three points of Common Sense flow from this premise. 1) Our sun, by far and away the greatest source of input of energy to our earth ecosystem, is the most likely caused of these previous temperature fluctuations. 2) Regardless of what the cause(s) of the aforementioned “warmings and coolings”, this same cause(s) is likely responsible for any current fluctuations on earth. 3) Had our current Proponents of human caused “Global Warming” lived they very short lives during the warm ups after any of the first 5 Ice Ages, would they not also have also ran around screaming, “the sky is falling”?

And further, it occurs to this writer that the Educated Elites should have first established if there is some regularity to this warming and cooling cycle, to eliminate the cycle itself as the likely suspect for our current weather patterns.

Let us next point out that what was once called “Global Warming” is now called “Climate change”. And this name change was made necessary because Mother Nature just would not cooperate. Instead of an admission Global Warming proponents were wrong they put forward a downplayed name change. From this, it occurs to this writer that this is indicative of an ulterior Agenda in search of a pretext, rather than an actual problem necessitating proposed solutions.

This brings us back to our Sun as the most likely cause of any temperature fluctuations on earth. To determine if this position is correct, the most Common Sense course of logic to this writer would seem to be, “What are the temperatures on other planets in our Solar System doing?” And the findings seem to corroborate this writer’s contention that the amount of energy reaching the planets from the Sun is the most likely source of the temperature fluctuation on Earth.

To the best of this writer’s knowledge, there is no significant human existence on the other plants and moons in the solar system. Ergo, the single commonality among them is the sun. And this writer would posit that any alleged weather changes emanate from that commonality because the rise in temperatures on other planets is beyond explanation as coincidence.

EDUCATED ELITES

And so the Educated Elites have been sent in to tell us that their data supports their Climate Change theory formerly known as Global Warming. And with little more explanation than that, WE THE PEOPLE are supposed to trust the conclusions they have presented.

CLIMATE CHANGE AS PROGRESSIVE TRICK AND ARTIFICE

Unfortunately, this is where this writer has to become more verbose because most of you do not share the same perception of reality that this writer does. And the reason for this is that your public schools, Main Stream Media (MSM), Hollywood, your government and the two major political parties fail to inform and instruct you upon the Natural Law upon which this country was founded. Yet to limit the length of this article, this writer will only address specific points relevant to this alleged Climate Change issue. However, this writer submits to all of you, that if you want to better understand how you fit into this world and prevent betrayal by your government and the further enslavement of future generations, you should learn about Natural Law.

And if you want better understand the elements of Progressivism I will bring up in discussing Climate Change and, even more importantly, to better understand the forces aligned against your freedom, may I suggest the following:

  • The Cloward-Piven Tipping Point Strategy – The Progressive Left’s Long Term Plan is Now Collapsing Our Economy http://t.co/4GHoJxOvag

And with those underlying sources provided we begin with a one paragraph summary of changing Governance Doctrines since 476 AD. After the fall of Rome, Europe developed a Governance Doctrine known as the Divine Right of Kings and an economic system known as Feudalism. During the Enlightenment (aka Age of Reason) 1650AD-1800AD, the Men of Letters came to question the authority of Kings/Queens. During said Enlightenment, the Men of Letters thoughts coalesced around a body of thought now known as Natural Law with the related Governance Doctrine of “Consent of the Governed”. America was founded on Natural Law and Consent of the Governed. This writer asserts that the American Revolution was more a revolt from the Governance Doctrine of the Divine Right of Kings than it was a revolt from Great Britain and its people. The Governance Doctrine of Marxism, the root of Socialism and Communism, emerged about 1855. Circa 1900, a Governance Doctrine emerged in America called Progressivism. Some assert that Progressivism is actually Marxism 2.0 but with a different name as Marxism was so unpalatable to America’s fierce embrace of Individualism, etc.

With that brief history out of the way, we will confine this portion of our Climate Change analysis to these three principles relevant to the Governance Doctrines of Divine Right of Kings, Consent of the Governed (Natural Law) and Progressivism. These three points are:

  • Nature of Man in the Natural State
  • Who Establishes Truth?
  • Property Rights

NATURE OF MAN IN THE NATURAL STATE

The nature of man in the natural state refers to the behavior of people before there was government. This is important as most people agree that governments should be constructed with the nature of man in mind.

Under Divine Right of Kings, perhaps paraphrasing Thomas Hobbes best examples the Nature of Man Kings believed in “Man is not a social animal, is selfish and brutish, and in a constant state of war” Therefore, per Hobbes, a strong government is necessary to create social order.

America’s Founders subscribed to Natural Law and Consent of the Governed. Under Natural Law, John Locke ascribed the nature of man in the natural state to be as a “Social Animal, with tendency to reason and logic, but who could be selfish. Our Founders showed some preference for the description of man in the Cato Letters, “All men have free will and are not virtuous by nature” It is this belief in the nature of man that led the Founders to create a government structure requiring transparency and accountability and Checks and Balances. The purpose of Government under Natural Law and Consent of the Governed is to provide people with more freedom than they would have in the Natural state by protecting the individual’s unalienable rights and property.

Progressivism asserts that the nature of man in the natural state is “as a Social Animal who is altruistic”. Therefore the government should be trusted by masses to make decisions in the best interests of the community, with the individuals rights subordinate to the best interests of the community as determined by the educated elites in government.

ESTABLISHMENT OF TRUTH

Divine Right of Kings Governance Doctrine is perhaps most efficiently explained with this statement: The King/Queen is a God or representative of God here on earth and, therefore, no earthly being may question the King/Queen’s decisions”. In effect the Church and the Aristocracies became the determiners of truth and maintained their Established truths by such means as “burning at the stake”, “drawing & quartering”, etc.

Natural Law and Consent of the Governed provide for the “Individual to determine truth for themselves using their own observations and reasoning”.

Progressivism holds that “Truth should be established by the Educated Elites; these educated elites to be selected from the wealthy, leisure class as they have the time to study the matters of governance.” The masses, for many reasons, but primarily that the masses don’t have the time to study governance should rely upon the decisions of the allegedly altruistic Educated Elites allegedly in the best interests of the community. Again, the individual’s unalienable rights are subordinate to the best interests of the community as determined by the allegedly altruistic Educated Elites.

PROPERTY RIGHTS

Under Divine Right of Kings, the King owned all property. All persons had no rights, only permissions and privileges. (Magna Carta only applied to Aristocrats and Freemen; vast majority of masses were serfs.) Thus any individual was only on any land by the permission of the King/Queen or the King/Queen’s representatives.

Under Natural Law and Consent of the Governed, upon which the United State of America were founded, private property ownership was an unalienable right, excepted as provided in Bill of Rights, Amendment 5. (This writer acknowledge the US Supreme Court has made certain unconstitutional divisions essentially restoring to the government power over land similar to that of governments operating under the Governance Doctrine of Divine Right of Kings)

A free people [claim] their rights as derived from the laws of nature (Natural Law), and not as the gift of their chief magistrate.

Thomas Jefferson

Progressivism, as we have already indicated, makes every individual's unalienable rights subordinate to the best interests of the community. Ergo, if Progressive Government wants your private property, or wants to control what you do on your private property, your resistance is futile. You can find more on this concept here:

The elements of the UN Agenda 21 forebode the absolute control Progressive government wants over you and your private property.

FINAL ANALYSIS – PULLING IT ALL TOGETHER

This writer asserts that there are many facts and aspects of this Climate Change issue that calls into question the credibility of the Government Educated Elite Scientists and reveal Climate Change as just a means to achieve certain goals of the Progressive Agenda.

Before we go farther, this writer reasserts the fact that Global Warming, rather than being abandoned, was renamed Climate Change because the data would not support the original assertion.

As we have said:

  • Progressivism asserts Truth is to be Established by Educated Elites;
  • Progressivism asserts that the masses must accept the findings and decisions of Educated Elites.
  • Progressivism posits that the nature of man is to be an altruistic social animal and therefore the Educated Elites can be trusted to only make decisions in the best interests of the community rather for their own selfish gains. (Progressivism further posits that these Educated Elites should be selected from among the wealthy leisure class, as only they have the time to study governance.)
  • Progressivism commands that the unalienable rights of the individual are subordinate to the best interests of the community as determined by the allegedly altruistic Educate Elites.

Let us begin with this writer simply dismissing the Progressive Foundational Premise that ascribes the nature of man as altruistic as hokum. Everything we observe in DC and our state and local governments evidences the nature of man to not be virtuous. This writer submits that the Founder’s belief that “All men have free will and are not virtuous by nature” is a far more accurate description of the nature of man.

Now, anticipating this will not be sufficient evidence for some to use for dismissing the data collected by these “Educated Elites” regarding Climate Change, this writer will assert a sage observation. Time and time again, we have seen scientific research compromised because of financial considerations. Whether it be related to the approval of new drugs, or the failure to exclude lead contaminated toys and food from China, data and research is skewed by financial considerations.

In the present case of Climate Change, there are multiple sources of financial pressure for the Educated Elite Scientists. Continued financing from government and individuals with vested interests. Government funding dries up if the Educated Elites don’t give the answer our Progressive Government wants. And, over and under the table contributions from persons with a vested interest in Al Gore’s already established “Carbon Exchange” stop sending money to Educated Elite Scientists that don’t come up with the “correct” answer.

So do you think it better that Americans establish truth for themselves per Natural Law, or do you think you should just be forced to accept the truth as established by the Progressive Educated Elites in Government? Does any of what this writer has written cause you to question the credibility of Proponents of the alleged Climate Change theory/ruse?

And now we shall discuss Agenda 21. Agenda 21 is a UN resolution. Agenda 21 also sometimes travels under the guise of “Sustainable living” Some choice bits to get your attention include whether or not you can dream your dream home, requiring an inspection and requirement that your house/property meets Agenda 21 standards before you sell your property; much greater ability of the government to tell you what you can and cannot do with your private property and how many children you can have.

Doesn’t all of this sound like a government having the same powers Kings had under the Governance Doctrine of the Divine Right of Kings? Doesn’t this sound like a system of Government whereby Government controls individuals by granting and/or taking away permissions and privileges? Do you really want a form of government whereby your government can punish you for protesting your government for such things as high taxes, corruption, too many wars, and “insert your favorite complaint here”?

Children should be taught HOW to think; NOT WHAT to think! Say No to Common Core & Progressive Education http://twitpic.com/deiexd

Don Mashak on Twitter @DMashak

This writer asserts that Climate Change is a false premise to get you to accept Agenda 21 and other policies that adversely affect your freedom and unalienable Natural Law Rights. Are you really willing to trade your unalienable Natural Law Rights, including private property rights, on the false premise of this alleged Climate Change?

Next, let us address this proposed “Carbon Tax Exchange”. What sense does it make that we have to pay cash to less developed countries to address environmental issues here? If there is some Climate Change going on, does it not make more sense that the money we raise to address the issue, be spent here to correct whatever causes of our activity contribute to Climate Change? Does this writer really have to explain how this will lower the Standard of Living for all Americans? And finally, perhaps this quote best sums up another aspect of this writer’s opinion on the Carbon Tax Exchange:

Foreign aid might be defined as a transfer from poor people in rich countries to rich people in poor countries.

Douglas Casey (1992)

In short, this writer asserts that there is a Quid Pro Quo arrangement between American Government officials and the Government Officials of Foreign Countries receiving aid. Essentially it is money laundering arrangement whereby US Officials can fleece American taxpayers with low probability of getting caught. The Foreign Aid in the form of food, etc is largely “hijacked” by corrupt officials in the foreign government, and our politicians look the other way in exchange for a Quid Pro Quo kick back. Imagine the inconvenience to these corrupt folks of actually having to convert money to food, etc and then have to ship it and convert it back to money. So much easier to defraud the American taxpayer with Carbon Exchange Credits that don’t actually physically exist. (Or do you buy the Progressive Foundational Premise that folks are honest and altruistic by nature?)

This writer ends this article by asserting that Progressivism is an attempt by the “powers that be” to reassert the power and wealth they had under the Governance Doctrine of the Divine Right of Kings. The powers that be calculate that if masses can no longer be punished for not believing the Truth as establishment by the government, that by controlling our observations, they can cause us to reach their conclusions (established truth). While at the same time, WE THE PEOPLE, unaware of our government’s lies, believe we have exercised free will in using our reasoning to establish truth for ourselves; again a truth which the Government Educated Elites actually had predetermined. (Your Main Stream Media has abanded WE THE PEOPLE)

And thus deceived, WE THE PEOPLE will willingly give up our freedoms as the only logical and prudent way to save our planet.

To this writer’s mind, the Carbon Tax Exchange is pure evil. It stealthily steals value created only by the labor of the masses and diverts it as unearned income to our politicians and their buddies.

The sad and scary thing is that there are Progressives in both the Republican and Democrat Parties who are going along with this Climate Change Conspiracy.

Those were my thoughts.

In Closing:

Thank you, my fellow citizens, for taking your valuable time to read and reflect upon what is written here.

If what is written here rings true to you, perhaps you should contact your local elected officials and let them know. If you are afraid of repercussions, snail mail it anonymously and ask them to respond in the local paper or their own monthly/quarterly internet newsletter. Even if this article refers to something outside you geographic area, it still likely applies to your location. Remember all those taxpayer training junkets we taxpayers send the bureaucrats on? They all learn the same “livestock management” techniques to use on WE THE PEOPLE.

And that leaves WE THE PEOPLE with this conundrum: While our #Government works full time with compensation and funded with our money for the cause of #Tyranny; WE THE PEOPLE are forced to work part time without compensation for the cause of #liberty with what is left over of our time, money and energy.

Finally, this article is written with the same intentions as Thomas Paine http://ushistory.org/paine. I seek no leadership role. I seek only to help the American People find their own way using their own “Common Sense” http://amzn.to/kbRuar

Keep Fighting the Good Fight!
