Climate Alarmists Pose Real Threat To Freedom By Vaclav Klaus

Climate Alarmists Pose Real Threat To Freedom
By Vaclav Klaus

A week ago, I gave a speech at an official gathering at Prague Castle commemorating the 60th anniversary of the 1948 communist putsch in the former Czechoslovakia. One of the arguments of my speech, quoted in all the leading newspapers in the country the next morning, went as follows:


Future dangers will not come from the same source. The ideology will be different. Its essence will nevertheless be identical: the attractive, pathetic, at first sight noble idea that transcends the individual in the name of the common good, and the enormous self-confidence on the side of its proponents about their right to sacrifice the man and his freedom in order to make this idea reality. What I had in mind was, of course, environmentalism and its present strongest version, climate alarmism.

He is correct, utopianism takes varied forms, and they all sound so plausable and right(especially to true believers)but they ALL end up with the fist around the throat and the boot on the head!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

This comes from beleiving that this life is all there is! Have to replace G*D and Eternity with something!

Hi Morgan--you've been missed 'round these parts; I'll try and get over to your house--my time is kinda limited on the computer these days...

Yes, he sure makes me proud to be half-Czech!
