ADDED 3/24/2019. I MADE A BIG MISTAKE HERE. THIS IS THE DRAFT PROPOSAL BY ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ, NOT THE VERSION THAT WAS ACTUALLY INTRODUCED.
The Green New Deal resolution introduced by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Ed Markey proposes to address a climate change crisis and a social-economic crisis. Here’s a quick summary of what they specifically propose.
- Build infrastructure to create resiliency against climate change-related disasters
- Repair and upgrade U.S. infrastructure, including ensuring universal access to clean water.
- Meet 100% of power demand through clean and renewable energy sources
- Build energy-efficient, distributed smart grids and ensure affordable access to electricity
- Upgrade or replace every building in US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency
- Massively expand clean manufacturing (such as solar panel factories, wind turbine factories, battery and storage manufacturing, energy-efficient manufacturing components) and remove pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from manufacturing “as much as is technically feasible.”
- Work with farmers and ranchers…

“There is nothing more cowardly than a supposedly liberal, tolerant democracy sending in the military to shut down and order violence against is own people for taking to the streets. It is simply the order of tin-pot dictator with delusions of adequacy.”
There are few people in this world more odious than French President Emmanuel Macron after his behavior this week. I’m sure there are child molesters who are worse. But as a man who is pivotal in the future of hundreds of millions of people, his decision to order the French military to quell the Yellow Vests protests with live ammunition is simply vile.
Macron outed himself as the very symbol of what animates the globalist elite he represents.
The disdain he holds for the people he leads is palpable. It’s as palpable for his disdain for the British who voted…

Pathological lying is a particular kind of lying. Many would argue that lying is simply part of being human. We all do it at one time or another. Sometimes our lies are relatively benign and inconsequential. (That’s the character of “little white lies.”) But lying can be really problematic at times. And it can cause much unnecessary pain and suffering. It can decimate relationships. Moreover, some disturbed characters lie habitually. And they seem to lie for no apparent rational reason. They lie about little things. And they lie even when the truth would appear to serve better. We’ve often called such liars “pathological” liars.
Pathological lying seems to make no sense. It’s hard to understand why someone would lie when the truth would suffice. And it’s especially hard to understand why someone would lie when the…

Oh what a tangled web we weave when we first practice to deceive (Sir Walter Scott)
but when we’ve practiced quite a while how vastly we improve our style! (Pope)
OK, take this simplistically. Say authority is exposed as corrupt = criminal, yet it remains authority. Now authority has legitimized criminality. Authority is now criminal. Law is now hi-jacked in service of criminals. Another cliché. Under corrupt governments honest men become criminals. (They are falsely identified as criminals to let the criminals off or are forced to become criminals to survive). Robin Hood. The legend of honest men becoming criminals to survive and resist a criminal state.
This inversion, perversion creates very tangled situations. Those who are practised to deceive are experts. Corrupt rulers adapt the expertise of the most talented con artists. They present a glorious exterior, expounding the highest humanitarian values. They hide their crimes behind banners of justice and moral action. But the sleight of hand going on is they murder and torture who they please and rob anyone of anything they want. Law is hi-jacked to justify their activities.
And the prime enemy of corrupt rulers are honest men. (A saying among spies is that the most dangerous man is an honest man with no agenda).
But there is no collective of honest men, so they are picked off as individuals. When you have the means to attack on all and every front simultaneously you can arrange a cascade of catastrophes to bring anyone down however honest and law-abiding they are. Everyone has relatives. Most good people have someone they love – mother or father, brother or sister, child or lover or friend. These are gifts to corrupt regimes. Any person you care about can be a hostage. Children – teens and young adults are especially vulnerable to being seduced into committing some minor crime (aren’t drug laws handy?) and found to be in bad company they were entirely unaware of. Or how about the growing trend in sexual blackmail. Protecting a child will buy most anybody’s silence and passivity. Under fascism, fascist/anarchy, have a child = grow your own hostage.
Relationships of the kind that everyone values and which are socially beneficial are prime targets for the criminal leeches. Like body parasites using any social or familial relationship enables the criminal agents of the state (or the agents of the criminal state) to get up close and personal. Like vampires invited in they are next to impossible to get out afterwards. Trust is destroyed in such a set up. Everyone who looks too good to be true probably is. Try telling your growing teen to be wary of attractive acquaintances and see how far you get.
But back to basics. When authority is criminal, is it still legitimate? We are conditioned to obey the laws and respect authority. The trouble is we are not equally conditioned to stop respecting the laws when the laws are clearly wrong, and withhold respect from authority when authority is clearly corrupt and on the side of criminals, when those in authority trash morality, trash law in any honest sense, and trash people by their actions. Those in power control everything. They control the media and control the definitions of what is going on. They are ready with plausible excuses for every act which causes damage always dressed up as being for the benefit of the common good. And they are fast to scapegoat all those people damaged by their actions, blaming the victims for the injuries caused to them.
Criminal governments are perennial. They are not confined to any national boundaries and plainly they are now seeking to be international, global in scope, parallel with international crime. It is hard enough trying to hold a government to account within national boundaries, without those boundaries being dissolved so that those who govern do so anonymously, in secret, their identities concealed, so that the people are blind-sided. They do not know who is ruling them only that they are ruled, bound by laws dictated and non-negotiable by rulers they cannot identify, hold to account or sack. Perhaps the EU is the perfect example. If the EU is the global model of the future, tell me – how is anyone going to defend themselves against a world-wide (criminal?) dictatorship possessing perfect knowledge about every citizen from childhood on?
