It is indeed ironic that Big Socialism is manifesting at the forefront of the previously ethical movement over concerns about Anthropogenic Global Warming. Ironic since history is clearly linking Big Socialism explicitly as the major cause of the carbon contribution problem in the first place. Our ‘oh so smart’ academic scholars have fallen for this sleight-of-hand yet again; demonstrating for an eighth consecutive decade that they not only fail to grasp economic principles and elements of sound business, but moreover fail to perceive when they are being manipulated by powerful global social forces who could care less about the Earth – only employing it as a battering ram in the war to enslave mankind under their voracious form of tyranny.
The Economist exposes why the most recent flurry of Social Skeptic push campaigns have hit the press: Why Climate Change is Suddenly Back on the Agenda.
If you sound the alarm about Climate Change – yet do not seek action inside deforestation (which accounts for 80% of climate change) and physical goods trade imbalances (which accounts for the remainder) – you are a clueless socialist apparatchik.
This is not about Climate Change – This is about Political Change.
No solutions are ever proposed or discussed – only attacks on targeted people, and demands for lock step allegiance.
And the Earth is the innocent victim of Socialism in two ways: First at the hand of misleading and purposely polarizing politics, and second ironically through Big Socialism’s actual primary contribution as THE major cause of Anthropogenic Global Warming
They created the problem, and now purport to be its solution. Sound familiar?
Seven Ways in Which Global Socialism is THE Major Cause of AGW
1. Highly Remote Untouchable Socialist Work Camps Cause Overproduction and Waste
By enslaving the working class and selling their captured value as manufacturing slaves, we ensure that products can only be made in the most remote socialist slave labor countries. As a result, the products they produce must be shipped great distances in order to be consumed. These were products which formerly shipped an average distance of 200 miles in many cases within classic unit based capital business scenarios. Products were produced by ethical family driven businesses which either by ethic or market nature valued local community and local community labor. This new remote aggregation of manufacturing results in the creation of massive trade agencies and shipping consolidation groups which ensure that the average consumer good ships over 7500 miles before it is consumed – and that the retail and wholesale buyers and ‘sales plan modeling packages’ which write the purchase orders are instructed to only buy from authorized Big Socialism shipping conglomerates.
When you buy all your margin perishable product, 7500 miles and 18 months in advance, you must buy 40% more than you need, and a 25% wider assortment in order to accommodate the increased uncertainty on sell through. Yes you get it cheap – but you also way over-buy and over-produce, and then must dump the poorly performing excess (most of what you bought) onto your home economic turf – because socialist entities bear no risk/do not make mistakes, and do not take returned goods as a result. This equates to resource wasting and product dumping, both of which destroy a consuming nation and deplete capital resources which otherwise could have been used to establish competing green manufacturing.
I own and operate a retailer and a wholesale buyer. Because I am forced to buy from China, I must buy a full 60% more than what I want to buy, in order to keep my margin afloat. I have little input into the manufacturing process, nor can I work with them to correct their mistakes. They just keep on pumping out product which I am required to buy – in order for me to have privileged access to their channels of sourcing. This is what occurs today – and stands as the largest single contributor to global warming.
“A-Level Vendors” they are called in the big software packages that drive manufacturing, SAP, Oracle and JDA. What are B-Level Vendors? Smaller local capital driven businesses which cannot produce enough cheap volume for you to put your competitors out of business. Oligarchs need an alliance with Big Socialism in order to eliminate the ethical employment of capital which could be employed to compete with them. That Oligarch/Big Socialism alliance of manufacturing is what drives AGW. That includes every 24 cent trinket and every $9 t-shirt ever worn, and a 30% overbuy on top of that. In fact, if you examine the world list of socialist states (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_socialist_states), you will find that these states comprise in excess of 75% of the world’s consumer goods manufacturing.
2. Aggregation of Slave Labor into MegaCommunities with Poor Green Infrastructure
A natural outcome of aggregating work camps into highly remote slave labor centers, is that manufacturing centers are concentrated into regions of carbon unaccountability, where emissions are not only not monitored, but the remote aggregation of people employed in the workforce forces those in the community to resort to ancient methods of sheltering and food preparation. I have spent time in Islamo-socialist and Neo-socialist countries where around the cities, every tree is dead, bereft of leaves in the winter of human ignorance and desire for a reclaimed ancient empire or dynasty. Hundreds of millions of families employing the domestic burning of wood, cow dung and coal (highly toxic fumigant sources) in order to provide energy for their homes. Young people left without means of birth control, where schools cannot be powered by wood, with absent long shift dual-slave working parents. All this creating an unsustainable severe drain on our environment, even independent of Climate Change. In fact, dollar for dollar, Socialist manufacturing countries produce 20+ times the carbon soot emissions as compared to the same size exporting non-socialist country (http://www.wisegeek.org/what-are-the-top-manufacturing-countries.htm).
3. Aggregation of Carbon Intensive Business into the Most Unaccountable and Irresponsible Political Climates
Socialism takes advantage of political structures with low levels of accountability, and seeks to dominate people who have lost their ability to stand on their own and hold their government accountable. In this environment, Big Socialism is able to more effectively hide the always incumbent royalty and pseudo-egalitarian elite groups who siphon the wealth out of the Big Socialism system. But this same tendency to hide and retreat from global accountability bears manifest, problems with respect to accountability within the countries Big Socialism has seen fit to conquer and dominate. It is solidly and unequivocally no coincidence, that the countries in the chart to the right which contribute the greatest contribution of carbon into the planet’s environment, all are Big Socialist countries. As you may see in the graphic to the right, provided by the World Economic Forum, 10 of the top 15 carbon and soot emitting nations are members of Big Socialism. It is clear that Big Socialism only TALKS a lot about Climate Change. Sound a lot like Social Skepticism and the scientific method? Social Skeptics remain the hapless pawns of this movement and its desire to influx its philosophies into western economic practices. See India and China Ignore UN Climate Change Summit.
4. Conversion of Lean Competitive Capital Business into Bloated Bureaucratic Oligarch Big Box and Monopoly Socialist Elite Dominated Industry
AGW proponents have a nasty habit of trying to blame carbon contributions on the activity of capitalist and Western business. But the sad fact remains, that as our businesses get more dominant, and cut out smaller competitors, resources tend to aggregated into the hands of a few, production centers are reduced, local labor is put out of work, and product must be dedicated to massive oligarch driven empires which generate carbon as a predatory way of using efficiency to put capital competitive businesses out of business. Ethical business owners must die off and give way to the detached and procedurally obedient workslave executive inhabiting a suit. Execubots trained by universities who only understand efficiency as a means-to-MEGA, and no longer grasp the heart of what values bolster ethical business or healthy economies. If you examine the official list of sweatshop labor practice countries, those where the state allows manufacturing to abuse its labor, and provide a totalitarian environment in which labor has no other choice of work, you will find the majority of these countries to be Big Socialist (http://www.independent.org/publications/working_papers/article.asp?id=1369) in their government, business and economics.
5. An Ever Increasing Lust for Control Mandates that Each Year Must Surpass the Last (or Risk Collapse of the Empire)
Box business, means that each year, the domination must increase – and the increase in revenue must come at any cost; or the slave enterprise risks losing control. Think of what will happen when China hits its first real depression. How will it survive the 5 largest insurrection dangers within its new dynasty? Big Socialism knows that China cannot survive a depression. They will push for mega increases in revenue, even at the cost of ethical employment of resources, or in the face of over-production versus demand to mitigate the risk of long lead times between manufacturing and consumption. This is the sad current reality of the China to US/Europe supply cycle under which we now suffer. As well, we currently waste 40+% of the food we produce in socialist growing regions through post harvest perishment and non-consumption globally. But the over production is part of the Socialist manifesto of business. There is no LEAN process in Socialism. There is efficiency, save for when it is needed to kill all competitors. Then that efficiency ethic goes by the wayside as bureaucracy builds, and stands in lieu of efficiency in the need for mega revenues. If you think that Nestlé, Blue Cross and Walmart are capitalist enterprises, you need to go apply for a refund from your graduate business university. These companies are not capitalist winners, they are the last losers. They are Big Box Socialism with a market equity mask. Indeed, the two top Socialist labor employing nations, rely upon a track record of slave labor to produce a smooth curve of growth without major recession, for the past 55 years. This, rather than an effect of competent business practice, is indeed an outcome of being able to force more production/overproduction year after year and depend upon consuming countries to accept the incumbent product dumping, and not complain because they are getting ‘low cost manufacturing.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historical_GDP_of_the_People%27s_Republic_of_China#mediaviewer/File:China_india_gdp.jpg).
6. The Polarization of Politics into an Environmentally Impotent Artifice Effective only at Absolute Control of the Population
It is no secret that the majority of the Social Skepticism movement, the pawns who are cluelessly employed to further the goals of Big Socialism, possess a lock step disdain for certain politics and sectors of our society. Tweets from the SSkeptic community continue to be embarrassingly awash with latet misandry, hatred of Caucasians, hatred of stay at home mom’s, hatred of families and every disdained remnant of the America they were trained to defeat. I am a critic of both sides of the political aisle as it comes to the application of good science and good sound economic policy. But when I survey the landscape of political extremism and irrationality which inhabits the halls of US Academia and Big Socialism proponents in the Social Skepticism movement, it renders me, even as a moderate, a great dead repulsed.
When the government or monist oligarchy becomes the sole entity which provides for the people. Then that entity must be protected at all costs. Including violent oppression, class enslavement and nuclear war.
Climate change has become a useful political football – much like a bootlegging network which must switch to drug smuggling when alcohol is legalized – the value is in the mechanism and not its product. Proponents never gave a damn about climate change to begin with – as it was the advocacy network which held the value and power they sought. Therefore, climate change will never go away as an issue. Even after we stop deforestation and level the current extreme trade imbalances – even after we all are riding in electric vehicles supplied power by clean power sources – the global socialist forces will not allow climate change to drop. It is too power enabling and too politically and financially advantageous.
The net of this is polarization; a purposeful division which ensures that nothing will get done, except hate. The Earth will be the victim, as conservative and moderates grow increasingly skeptical of the political agendas, and our elected representatives are emasculated of any ability to accomplish policy in western governments. The Social Skepticism movement is led and chartered by Socialist and Big Party democrats who make it clear that they will gladly sell science based on politics. A great example can be found here (http://www.skepticblog.org/2014/09/06/false-equivalence/) and here (http://theness.com/neurologicablog/index.php/how-to-be-a-science-denier/). After all, power and political domination is the real goal. The Earth is simply a playing card in their game of political domination. You will notice that Steven Novella and Donald Prothero are exceedingly quiet about proposed solutions to AGW, and the need to divert carbon from our Value Chains. The solutions are there, solutions which do not entail the adoption of Socialism (not that Socialism will help in the least) but these guys just don’t seem to be able to talk about them much.
7. The Destruction of the Human Problem Solving Spirit
The final nail in the coffin of mankind (and the Earth), through the deleterious effect of Big Socialism, is its insistence that only the Elite and their obedient cronies are allowed to possess meaningful lives. Big Socialism has made it clear that it will gladly destroy the planet in its quest for domination. But moreover, Big Socialism has another effect, probably the most damaging of all. That of destroying our spirit, our ability to create, our ability to counter and strive for survival, our gumption to face a big problem and seek to win. Big Socialism kills all within man that is driven by a ‘more than just me’ ethical boldness. Big Socialism kills our spirit as creative problems solvers and dreamers – just the kind of ethical people who can cure cancer, go to the moon, and help solve issues like Climate Change. The decline in American optimism is rising commensurate with the tyrranical obsession our Social Skeptics have placed onto destroying certain strength sectors of our society. They continue to ignore the alarms, fail to be circumspect about who is formulating their propaganda, and run through a process of denial when faced with any argument which runs counter to their form of Big Socialism and its decaying effect on a free society (http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/dana-milbank-americans-optimism-is-dying/2014/08/12/f81808d8-224c-11e4-8593-da634b334390_story.html).
With Big Socialism, we lose our soul first, then we lose our lives.
