From the Pen of David Horowitz: November 17, 2009

November 17, 2009


The inability to remake humanity has now caused Marxism to founder in terminal crisis; the very victims in whose name its assault was carried out have now rejected it, so that Marxism can no longer speak in their name or invoke their suffering to justify its destructive agendas. This is the real crisis of the radical left—and environmentalism is its solution.

In the environment, the left has found a victim to champion that cannot reject it, a victim that will provide endless justification for its destructive agendas. This is the truly new element in the Green revolution: a constituency – nature — that cannot speak for itself. The conflict between vanguard and victim that has plagued generations of the left has been thus eliminated. What remains is the hubris of the radical remnant, the self-chosen saviors for whom the human condition is not a reality we must come to terms with, but material that we must approach as gods and redeemers to subdue and transform.

    We have become flooded with Godlike beings searching to latch on to conflicts and thereby, become experts on the subject that has no reasonable solution, but they cling to the noteriety it gives them. Humans, by nature are curious and this very trait is exploited by nefarious individuals who continually pop up in society intent on confusing issues for personal glory. The sooner these fools are exposed, the sooner society can move forward.

    It’s easy to create smoke and mirrors about the environment to control everyone. No one cares about “the worker class” so that excuse can’t be invoked.

    It’s like the Left is pushing pills on the street.
    The red pills (class warfare) and white pills (peace movement)
    aren’t selling that good right now. But the green ones are.

    David’s insight into the Left is remarkable. But it is to be expected of a radical son. The environment cannot complain of being made a victim can it? However, as under Marxism, the people must be forced against their nature into obedience. Therefore, in time the latest Progressive Left strategem shall fail.

    We the People are begining to push back.

    We are not left with no defence. Regarding the UN Climate Change treaty, we can have an “agreement in principle’ that we must stop the pollution; but we do not need to sign any “legally binding agreement.” Those are only so we can be threatened and taken to court.

    God is against nations gathering for leadership, wisdom, protection and provision. Each nation has God for all things if they use the wisdom He sent to them.
    Psalm 2: 4, 5 “He that sits in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. :5 Then shall He speak to them in His wrath, and vex them in His sore displeasure.”

    We can see that the United Nations has no power over nations that do not choose to follow their ways and very little power even over those who do want to. They end up stirring up violence and have not achieved the peace they were created to achieve. More UN power will bring more confusions and more traveling and costs to talk about what is wrong..

    Going against God’s ways bring deception and a lack of freedom and independence.
    There is no need for the UN Climate Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in December. The solution is clear; turn from the destructive employment lifestyle to a regenerating garden paradise lifestyle. It will solve all the problems the UN has been trying to solve. It will succeed where the United Nations has failed. No nation needs an agreement; they can lift up the garden paradise lifestyle to their people. Every one who adopts it will be blessed and it will be a blessing to the nation and the world.

    God has solutions to world problems we created by ignoring His wisdom.

    The horror of what the far left now champions in it’s hegelain dialctic is much more dangerous than the old Marxists of the distant past. It’s very much anti-human. That is different than history having an agenda and the proletariat being the ultimate champion. Whereas the New Class of the old Soviet system was content to be the pusher and mover of the apocalypse- we now have a new class of messiahs who generally hate humanity for its very existence and looks upon mankind itself as the enemy. Its still all about control from above but I have to believe its now much more dangerous to be below than it used to be. Now you must not consume or procreate or drill or breathe for that matter- not to mention flatulence for goodness sakes. Alice in Wonderland has now joined hands with Marx and we are headed who knows where if this continues unabated.

      Your point is absolutely correct and one of the reasons I believe there is an abundance of hatred on both the left and the right.

      For the first time in human history, humanity itself is the enemy.

      Maybe with that understanding we can come to gripes with the reasons those on the left refuse to acknowledge the threat of terrorism. Is it really much of a difference between a suicide bomber who kills himself and a few dozen to a few thousand people and women who kiss their own children when the hatred of humanity is ones guiding principle?

    Thank you David for expressing what seemed obvious but could not have been exposed as clearly except from a former radical.

    What is fairly obvious is how many of the capitalist/corporate haters stand to financially benefit from this latest myth, creating hysteria and unwarranted destruction.

    It is a more perfect cover to redistribute the wealth than any of the other schemes the left has invented.

    You omitted from the end: “…to the personal benefit of memebers of our cadre.”

    The manmade Global Warming/Climate Change hoax has been massively exposed, with the hacking and publication of embarrassing documents and 1,000+ email communications between “respected” scientists. The first BBC coverage was far more concerned about the security breach and catching the hacker, rather than the outrageously misleading, manipulated, and fradulent content. Unfortunately for the Global Warming co-religionists, the genie is out of the bottle! It’s about time! American press has lagged in it’s coverage, but will not be able to ignore it! Thank God for the Internet, and the utter inability of government OR press to control the dissemination of information! Guess Al Gore will have to reconsider his investment portfolio and career options. One wonders if the Whitehouse will cancel the junket to Copenhagen, or pretend everyone the seas will soon be boiling? The Environmental fascists are not finished, but this should deal them one heckuva setback!
