Part 1: The Mad Hatter
First I have to say this poor woman is not mentally acute. She is in over her head. Sadly, this is what you get when you double down on dumbed down education, letting it sink into a feel good gushy process. An Oafish Child does not understand basically anything, except how to make a drink, and I bet she wasn’t very good at that either. She is without one accomplishment. What would make the people of Queens believe that she could suddenly develop great insight into the functionality of society, science, finance, rhetoric, creative ideas, and the list goes on into every corner of human accomplishment, for she has done nothing in any of them. She is a child. This has been tried before in the early Soviet Union, also by Pol Pot, and during the Chinese in the Cultural Revolution. These devious tyrants of socialism use children as their henchmen in the hope that the brainwashed adolescents would destroy everything, particularly the older people, so that no one would remember the profoundly superior quality of life that existed before the communists, or the progressives as they have rebranded themselves.
The news media is no better. If anything shows the press for the fools they are, it is their silly adulation over this bleak intellectual equivalent to a twelve year old.
The key to rational decision making is the knowledge that resources are not infinite and that what is used to implement one project, is not available to implement another project, hence the ability to properly prioritize goals is an important skill of a true leader. Adults, both voters and congress persons understand this. Even in the Soviet Union, where the government was in charge of all the resources and commanded the labor of every citizen (is that a slave state?), the leaders knew that they could not do every project that they wanted or that they believed was needed, so they rationed the resources minimally to things like public housing, and built cheap and ugly (because art and esthetics have no value except to exalt the state) concrete block housing.
Diminutive aoc is a child. Diminutive aoc therefore has no comprehension of tradeoffs, or prioritization of goals and projects. Had she understood these things, she might have spent less time dancing on the roof and spent more time learning a useful skill that would have improved her life.
I generally have little respect for environmentalists because most are like aoc, totally lacking in scientific training or the requisite math required to understand science correctly. However there is an environmentalist who clearly has a science background, and he recently unloaded on aoc.
Patrick Moore, the co-founder of Greenpeace, slammed socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Saturday calling her a pompous twit, and then laying down several facts, trade off type dilemmas, which she was totally unprepared to respond to. I.e. she does not understand science, engineering, finance, economics, or probably not even one of the key areas one must be educated in to understand the complex issues involved in any attempt to remold our society. She, like the famous socialists who went before her, namely Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao, is a fanatic with zero understanding of efficient resource management, and as such is deadly to the future of anyone under her control.
Patrick’s examples of her lack of understanding are so in tune with my own thoughts that on reading them that I feel there is some hope of moving back to a rational discourse on these issues within this country and in the world. We really need people who are trained in the issues to start driving the narrative rather than journalists and science-free politicians.
You can read Fox News presentation of Moore’s attack on aoc by clicking the link below. If you do a Google search you can find other writeups on it. Below the link I have clipped out several key statements which demonstrate some of the important issues he referenced, and regarding which she has no understanding. I will write my breakdown of the Not Green & No Deal later.
Moore to diminutive aoc: “Pompous little twit. You don’t have a plan to grow food for 8 billion people without fossil fuels, or get the food into the cities. Horses? If fossil fuels were banned every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking and heating. You would bring about mass death.”
“’@AOC ‘s Green New Deal calls for: ‘(J) removing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere,'” Moore tweeted. “Technically (scientifically) this would mean removing all H2O vapor and all CO2 which would mean the eradication of all life on Earth. Brilliant.”
Regarding aoc’s use of planes, Moore fired back: “The “world as it is” has the option of taking the subway rather than a taxi. option of Amtrak rather than plane, option of opening windows rather than A/C. You’re just a garden-variety hypocrite like the others. And you have ZERO expertise at any of the things you pretend to know.”
I would say that she is not pretending, but just parroting catch phrases that she picked up on from her radical communist professors who have selectively examined the trees of history, government, sociology, and all aspects of human endeavor, and picked out and devoured the rottenest of the fruit.
Now we have aoc declaring that capitalism is a horrendous system, which can no longer be tolerated. Wow, how do you think we got here with modern medicine, mechanized agriculture, and we could go on for hours listing the accomplishments and human benefits of capitalistic society. Particularly, I have to ask her, how do you think we got out of medieval feudal society? She doesn’t know history. And lastly what do you think you would replace it with? Every one of your communist societies have either cratered, or converted, or is stumbling. By that, I mean that people are dying, or starving, or are suffering within
the few tiny communist regimes that remain on the plane. Furthermore, only agricultural, technologically backward societies have been successfully converted to communist regimes. Of those, the Russians have rejected communism; this is like a pie in the face of the progressives, and it is why they hate Russia so much these days, and loved it so much back in its communist days. And China has slid from communism to fascism without even a blink. The only places where communism hangs on is tiny agricultural economies.
At least aoc has thrown her veil completely off, letting us know who she is. She wants to burn the house down, and start over. She is indeed a spoiled child who stomps her feet and cries, because the world does not work the way she would like- nor will it ever.
You might not like everything in your house, but you need to slap yourself in the face and think it over. Is it really best to burn the house down? How many lives do you think should be sacrificed so that you can field test your utopian plan for society?
Elizabeth Pocahontas Warren wants to break up Amazon, Facebook, Google, etc. I’m not sure what good that would be. Facebook and Google don’t charge me anything. Amazon giver me really good service at a reasonable price. She thinks that they are too big and make too much money. Yeah, so? We use them because they are the best vehicles for those activities we use them for. To me the best thing to do would be to treat them as utilities and require that they serve everyone without any discrimination-end of story. But again, I guess that like aoc she doesn’t care how much she screws up others’ lives so long as she gets to poke a capitalist in the eye.
Seems to me like Warren and Cortez are just furiously jealous.
