The Morning Report — 12/26/22


Good morning, kids. Hope you all had a blessed Christmas holiday. On a personal note, I want to thank all of you who hit the tip jar for your incredible generosity, especially in light of the current situation. A couple of our thank you notes bounced back, so if you didn't get one, I just wanted to make sure you all know how much we appreciate the support. Thank you!

And now we begin the final week of our third accursed year in a row. About the eye-rolling-est (if that is a word) headline I saw last week was on AOL, something to the effect of the literal Arctic weather that swept as far down as the deep south was still evidence of catastrophic climate change, FKA "global warming."

It'd be funny were it not for the fact that along with laws and edicts being passed in this country and in the world FKA "the free world" which will dismantle our economy and way of life by intentionally halting and reversing thousands of years of progress and send us back into Dark Ages 2: Eat Bugs Boogaloo, some sick bastards got a jump on the fun and games and vandalized power stations up in Washington State. 15,000 Washingtonians were without power in the middle of sub-freezing temperatures. Add this to the rash of "Jewish lightning" hitting food processing plants all over the place. That, my friends, constitutes an act of terrorism and in a sane world would result in the death penalty for the perpetrators. Meh, there's very little difference to what they did than what president Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants and his Kalorama Komintern Kontrollers are doing to the fossil fuel industry. The end result is the same.

"Climate change" is just the incestuous cousin of "structural racism" and "white supremacy," and every other "crisis" the Democrat-Left have railed against since time immemorial. If they can't find any, they'll just create it. Fake, but accurate, nein? And for sure, if it's not a myth it is they themselves that created the problems in the first place. As I and others have quipped, "Munchausen's by Progressivism."

Readers who might be worrying about what could go wrong with dimming the sun or mimicking a cataclysmic volcanic eruption should recall that Schwab and Malleret wrote their Great Reset book months before Joe Biden publicly acknowledged that the coronavirus epidemic might have originated in a Chinese lab. When one recalls that the 1977 H1N1 pandemic that killed seven hundred thousand people in Central Asia probably resulted from another Chinese lab accident, there exists the possibility that science itself might be a source of a catastrophe.

If scientists who meant well accidentally killed seven hundred thousand people, then our confidence in science cannot be absolute because when it comes to complex systems—as Schwab and Malleret themselves have noted—minor errors can have huge consequences. Our ability to predict what viruses and dimming the sun will do is limited. . .

. . . Most people are familiar with the philosophical distinction between ends and means. Because extreme ends impel extreme means, communities are usually careful about declaring the equivalent of war. War justifies actions that would never be countenanced in peace. If you are really out to save the planet, then dimming the sun is a reasonable risk.

Can we get such imperative ends from science? It may come as a shock to a generation taught to equate science with progress that it is silent on intrinsic values. Science will equally make an electric toaster or an electric chair. Science itself doesn’t care whether humanity survives or not. It concerns itself with anticipating the outcomes consequent to certain physical arrangements. The moral values of those outcomes must be supplied from elsewhere.

Do the leaders of the Global Reset Axis of Evil actually believe their own press releases or is it just the greatest swindle of all time? Does it really matter? In the end, it's the nearly eight billion of us who will be forced to endure brutish existences only to wind up in an early grave. If we're lucky. Yet, for every Al Gore rubbing his hands in glee as he anticipates potential billions in carbon offsets, there is some Earth Liberation Front psycho drooling at the prospect of crashing birth rates and the starvation of billions of people, dreaming of a humanity-free planet. Some just can't wait; ergo the vandalized power stations and quite possibly the food processing plants.

On a not necessarily unrelated note, there is pushback. Whatever rigged outcomes happened with the elections, people are voting with their feet. A "reset" of sorts, if you will. The destruction and uncertainty we are enduring now, and will likely have to endure for some time into the future may very well have unintended consequences that redound on our oppressors and tormenters in ways that they had not fully anticipated. As Steve Miller once sang, "You've got to go through Hell before you get to Heaven." Of course, as Winston Churchill is thought to have stated, "If you're going through Hell, keep going."
