From where I sit, we appear to live in a world of illusion – smoke and mirrors. One where the planet is burning up, there is a climate emergency, a pandemic that is killing people in droves globally, where masks are essential, and on and on and on. A world in which freedom of speech is somehow now an undesirable right wing trait along with common sense and constructive thinking. Where the media has everything dumbed down to crisp fear mongering soundbites and where my PhD in Geology is now actually a PhD in denial. In short, it is as if the world has gone mad. Up is down and down is up and if I don’t agree I am a denier. Well, sorry, I don’t and I am not alone.
I see a descent into totalitarian hell going on honestly and it isn’t a slow one either. Big Tech and the media are pushing this agenda as hard as they possibly can and it amounts to a whole bunch of lies. In areas where I have some expertise and read the actual science, there is no evidence of a climate emergency, the planet is NOT burning up, forest fires are down, significant weather events are down, CO2 is plant food and a little bit more of it has greened the planet (says NASA). But I’m a denier. Soon, I have no doubt I will be shunned by some of you and I suspect that some of you will cheer on as people like me are denied basic rights and finally put in internment camps. OK thats a bit strong but that is where it is headed….
First, people like me are called deniers, then we are de-platformed so we cannot speak freely anymore – muzzled. Next, we are besmirched, called names, we have our reputations questioned along with our motives. And then imagine when the media starts calling for us not just to be cancelled but seen as a threat. It’s already started people. In the US, the left is already demanding it. Then all those others who want to be seen to be onside – they start reporting their friends and neighbors, relatives and rivals…. the media whips up the anti-denier mob and pretty soon…… It can happen and we are already just a short step or two away.
I didn’t vote in the US election (again). I could not vote for Trump and I seriously have nothing but bile for the Biden/Harris agenda. Yet 70+ million did vote for Trump and there are calls for this half of the US population to be blacklisted, called out. We are at the beginning of a witch hunt in which people with a conservative bend or just who value freedom of speech will be persecuted. Think I am joking? Well, just pay attention to the narrative – Listen and watch.
Politics bores me. The same issues and the same arguments ad infinitum. But I now frame things like this. There are two types of people – those who look at how Government is protecting personal freedoms and freedom of speech and those who appear to want more and greater centralization of power and say and are willing to give up these basic human rights – whether they know that or not). I belong in the former camp and I am alarmed at how most Governments and politicians are in the latter camp.
Wake up …. before it is too late. And don’t tell me I am wrong… I am not. The suppression of criticism of the narrative is happening daily and getting worse.
