Telling commentary on green-smoke-and-mirrors, enviro-flimm-flamm, and bullshit


David Davis

From here, but here’s the crux-or-nub:-

Benjamin Williamson, economist at the think tank Centre for Economics and Business Research, said: “It’s hard to think that people are eating less, but it is possible. We know for a fact that people are trading down from organic, premium and fair trade products, to more normal lines.

More about “Fairtrade” and fraud-scams.

The Torygraph has this today.

John Say, of our gentleman-type-writer team, said this a few months ago too – 18th March 2008.

“Fair Trade” kit does not solve any problems – a typical erroneous fascist left “solution” for the wrong problem. Sadly, and expensively, the right solution is to abolish (it may have to be colonially, but I’d hope not) the socialist dictocracies set up in the wake of “decolonisation” by the denizens of the Bandung Generation – egged on as they were by well-meaning but cretinous Western governments.

We’ll also have to clear out most of the current crop of teachocrats in Britain’s state schools and (most of) its Universities too. I’ve no idea what they will do to earn a crust, so therefore I am so very very sorry for them and their families in this eventuality: it’s their problem for they brought us to it – but they won’t be allowed near a school, a university, or a computer, or a telephone, for a very very very long time, if at all. I guess that they will just have to learn to be sensible plasterers or brickies’-mates, or just drive tractors…no, that’s too responsible a job, they might run over a Libertarian non-politician accidentlaly-on-purpose.

This is a very un-Libertarian solution to a problem not of our making. All we were was asleep. (I suppose that’s bad, yes.)

I’m beginning to think that pure, passive Libertarianism, unleavened by some revolutionary activity, is not going to be enough any more.

Sometimes I get very angry. Sorry.
