The Neo-Feudalists are weaponizing mental illness in the name of “Climate Change”.

Excerpt:
The fanatical elites who are weaponizing mental illness are also waging class war. They are against cheap energy & industrial capitalism because they lift up ordinary people and close the gap with the elites, who want distance & inequality.

Naturally the elites need to claim the opposite, that they want an end to inequality and poverty, because everybody knows the quickest way to increase inequality and poverty is by making energy and food more expensive. Watch what they do, and demand.

“Part and parcel of our narcissistic culture is black-and-white dichotomous thinking” known as “splitting.”

Wrote Thunberg, “Everyone says that there is no black-and-white issue, but I think this is. Either we go on as a civilization or we don’t.”

Adds @GingerCoy , “If a person laments that they are a victim, in this narcissistic age, it should be a red flag that they are likely a perpetrator.”

Such is the case with climate activists.

They are some of the richest and most privileged people in the world, thanks to cheap and abundant fossil fuels. Some of them, like the heirs and heiresses to the Getty Oil and Rockefeller Oil fortunes, are more directly beneficiaries than others.

And yet they are actively seeking to deprive others, both their fellow citizens and Africans, of those very fuels, as well as non-fossil sources of productive energy, like hydroelectric dams and nuclear power.

The heirs to the Getty and Rockefeller say they are financing anti-fracking advocacy because fracking is bad for the climate, but it was always obvious that fracking, by creating cheap and abundant natural gas to replace coal, would reduce emissions and be great for the climate.

The real and often unconscious reason that the heirs to the Getty and Rockefeller fortunes finance anti-fracking is the same reason that Putin consciously did: fracking threatens their economic wealth, social status, and political power.

More oil and gas from fracking reduced the price, and thus the value, of existing oil and gas assets. It meant the old rich had to make way for the new rich in social circles. Think of how the country club snobs looked down on the Rodney Dangerfield character in “Caddyshack.”

Anti-capitalism thus became the ideology of the old rich, or what sociologist Thorstein Veblen called “the leisure class.”

    I am guilty of the same to a lesser extent. When gas goes above $5.00 that seems to be a tipping point and I have less “people of limited means” in my way when I am out and about. Why wouldn’t the global elites want to shove everyone who isn’t their progeny in a pod, feed them bugs and tell them to “Be Happy”?
