Definition, Imperial Presidency / Imperial Academia: contemptuous of the constitution and science, condescending to the people, anti-energy, PRO-BIG GOVERNMENT and PRO-GLOBAL WARMING ANTI-BUSINSS POLICIES.
Sure, sure as a researcher it is easier dealing with government and not the public because the government has the money researchers want and all they have to do is tell the government what it wants to hear. The public does not want to pay for being lied to and that is why the public must change the government; but, that will be a big battle because academia and the media are aligned with the government and against the people who are working to pay all of the bills.
Patrick Buchanan (Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?) says the counterculture of the 60s, “is dominant in the culture, the arts, the academy, and the media. The Fifth column of the cultural revolution is entrenched in the courts where judges and justices…”
Those who voluntarily provide all of the goods and services and profits in the capitalist economy that provide all of the taxes that operate government are now the counterculture. In other words, society is not so free anymore. The blood, sweat and investment of the productive in the free enterprise system are being usurped against their will by government and transferred to those who vote to keep government in power.
The pretense to knowledge is all that keeps the government-sponsored Ponzi scheme afloat. Voters are not as smart as they used to be. They believe those who work for the government when they say, “we have modeled your future” (Any model, including those predicting climate doom, can be tweaked to yield a desired result. I should know. ~Robert J. Caprara, WSJ: Confessions of a Computer Modeler). Finally, when reality can no longer be ignored, people are confused upon learning that, Global warming computer models are confounded as Antarctic… (It’s unprecedented: across the globe, there are about one million square kilometers more sea ice than 35 years ago, which is when satellite measurements began).
The world is not has hot as it is supposed to be, according to the government’s models. Moreover, it may not be as cold as it is going to get, as history tells us is clearly possible. Hot or cold, the government has nothing to do with it, not now – this time – nor, ever in the past. “Antarctic sea ice hits new record high with 2.1 million square miles more than is usual for time of year,” cries the news headline above (see link).
To be the friend of global warming alarmist Western government, however, demands that truth be hidden. Even so, it is a lack of energy that is the real problem in the world –e.g., Poor Sanitation Linked to Malnutrition in India… (New research on malnutrition, which leads to childhood stunting, suggests that a root cause may be an abundance of human waste polluting soil and water, rather than a scarcity of food).
The modern world uses energy to treat sewage and for clean water. The people of countries that do not have affordable energy suffer the ravages of privation, disease and death –e.g., India’s oldest and holiest city, is so awash in human waste that its decrepit condition became a national issue… [waste] flows directly into the river just above the bathing ghats… Many people wash or brush their teeth beside smaller sewage outlets… Much of the city’s drinking water comes from the river (see link above).
In modern business (in the real not phony world of Western politics), sometimes the best decision is to discontinue a bad project. Otherwise, the continued spending of good money after bad is unending. That is where we’re at when it comes to global warming: continued spending on the government-funded climate change policy-making business is simply good money after bad.
