EU & Kohlendioxid: Lebenslüge, Sado-Maso oder “White Lie”?

Master_Veränderungen_CO2_2005_2020AWäre die Europäische Union ein Individuum, hätte dieses Ansätze zu Größenwahn und sexuellem Masochismus. Als Gruppe könnte sie sich mit ihrer Klima-Politik auch “nur” in einer immer größer werdenden Lebenslüge verheddert haben. Welche Metapher auch gewählt wird – “Wissenschaftler” und “Journalisten” haben wesentlich zum Wahngeschehen in der EU bei getragen – indem sie das Politico-Geplapper (vorgeblich) ernst genommen und darauf verzichtet haben, reale Größenverhältnisse zu thematisieren. Hätte es in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten eine echte “kritische Öffentlichkeit” gegeben, wäre es nie zur heutigen monströsen Selbsttäuschung gekommen. [Read more...]

Der nächste Krieg in Europa – Zitat

“That’s a problem because there are two very good ways to make war happen. The first is to be arrogant, blustering, and unwilling to compromise.  The second is to be militarily weak. The European Union is both (…But) I don’t think the next general European war is imminent, for what it’s worth. If things follow the usual pattern, there will be wars on the periphery first (…) My readers in the United States, to the extent that they can spare the time from the convulsions of an imperial state in extremis, might be equally well advised to keep a wary eye on the other side of the Atlantic, and resist the temptation to get drawn into European quarrels. We’ll have quite enough to deal with over here.” John Michael Greere (vormals  als “Erzdruide” bekannt), “The Next European War”, erschienen in seinem Ecosophia-Blog

Tyranneien, “Rechtsstaat” & die Auslieferung Julian Assanges – Zitat

Tyrannies invert the rule of law. They turn the law into an instrument of injustice. They cloak their crimes in a faux legality. They use the decorum of the courts and trials, to mask their criminality. Those, such as Assange, who expose that criminality to the public are dangerous, for without the pretext of legitimacy the tyranny loses credibility and has nothing left in its arsenal but fear, coercion and violence. The long campaign against Assange and WikiLeaks is a window into the collapse of the rule of law, the rise of what the political philosopher Sheldon Wolin calls our system of inverted totalitarianism, a form of totalitarianism that maintains the fictions of the old capitalist democracy, including its institutions, iconography, patriotic symbols and rhetoric, but internally has surrendered total control to the dictates of global corporations and the security and surveillance state.” Chris Hedges, The most important Battle for Press Freedom in Our Time
