The Cruelest of all Tyrannies

Tormenting us for our own (supposed) good.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” – C.S. Lewis

Thanks to B Vogel for this quotation

Perhaps this could apply to some of the good people who sincerely believe the global warming propaganda. (I can’t believe they all fit into the “Basket of Deplorables.”)

  1. “some of the good people who sincerely believe the global warming propagand” ?

    No one with at least a 3rd Grade education could possibly believe the Global Warming crap !

    “They” know it’s a lie, but they also know how stupid the General Public is so getting paid just to lie is an easy job and it pays very well !

    But then being the Devils pawn doesn’t work out well, and then it becomes a really bad situation come last breath day !!!!!!!

    • “no one with at least a third grade education”? My two sisters–both of whom have PbDs–are among many with PhDs who beleve it. One of them may believe it because Obama appears to–she seems ro believe Obama is one of our greatest presidents. And she’s head of a department at a university!

      • In my books PhD is a title that makes the owner of it an total impractical dreamer. I did met during my career as MSc engineer a lot of PhD lunatics….

      • It is funny that the award of a PhD is supposed to rely on a person’s original research into the subject of their doctorate – or so I thought. Research should be fearless.

        And yet with climate science all we see is bullying which blatantly claims the “science is settled” and if you want to disagree get out of the course.

        Any original research which included any of a myriad of legitimate questions is obviously going to result in a fail – they explicitly say so.

        Academia has totally failed in allowing any this type of behaviour to exist without challenge.

        Many today see that the decades of encouraging University participation now results in degrees etc. that are now basically worthless – except lawyers, as always.

        Academia’s reputation is being trashed daily by its silence.

      • WhiCh only proves having a title is wothless without critical thinking skills and understanding rhetoric vs. Reality.

  2. many a crime has been committed against others
    “for your own good” they cry
    and meanwhile feel very smug at their “goodness”
    catholic church was good at it,,so were others also
    and the Gor e -acles church of global warming is NO different
    a “faith” with little to NO evidence
    we must trust them/have faith

  3. Most of us have a desire to believe in something greater than themselves. It’s disappointing when otherwise intelligent people choose the fabricated falsehood of global warming.
