Ignorance Is Strength And Warmth Is Cold

I see the Orwellian agenda is fully in place – War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength and Warmth is Cold. And evidently the old adage from 1984 which states that "Thoughtcrime does not entail death: thoughtcrime is death" may be an upcoming reality in the climate debate. Bill Nye the science guy insisted on MSNBC, "If you want to get serious about it, these guys claiming that the snow in Washington disproves climate change are almost unpatriotic -- it's as if they're denying science.”

Now I have little doubt the climate is changing, but I don’t believe it’s due to man. I believe the change we are seeing is due to nature and the fact that the climate has always changed and will always change and there is little man, with all his technology and arrogance, can do to alter that fact. But it seems that the dumbing down of society is apparently reaching its apex when we just automatically accept that the fact that the colder it gets only proves how hot is really is.

Of course the simple fact that the mean temperature has not increased since 1998 is not mentioned as the warming advocates keep banging their drums waiting for the money to fall from the government’s hands into their own. And to those beating the warming drum, the idea that warmth may go hand in hand with the sun is a ridiculous concept. In the mind and money filled pockets of the warming advocates, if the planet is warming is it only due to the parasitic disease called man and can only be fixed by the same parasite and of course, by cash.

The phrase, “If it doesn’t make sense, it’s not true,” comes to mind as I read the debates. Although I know how much we love our idols and Mr. Gore has a huge following that hang on his every word and believe he is a hero with vast knowledge, there comes a time when we must step back and realize he is fallible. We should also realize he is looking out for number one which can be easily proven by investigating the size of his carbon footprint. He is a “do as I say, not as I do” false prophet and his goal is to profit off of our ignorance.

This global warming debacle has far more to do with warming the pockets of the few with cash, while the rest of us will suffer the cold of carbon taxes and loss of freedom. The idea that just because it’s said on the television doesn’t make it the truth is a concept that we have forgotten. The dumbing down is nearly complete and we must remember that ignorance is strength and warmth is cold.
