Last week, at the London Literary Festival, climate change activist, Greta Thunberg blamed the West’s free-market capitalist system for “imperialism, oppression, genocide… racist, oppressive extractionism.” She called for a “system-wide transformation” of our economic system. The left always exposes themselves. They are so enamored with their self-righteousness and virtue that they cannot help exposing their hidden agendas because they believe their agendas are morally superior. So, all of Greta Thunberg’s ranting and raving about climate change, over the years, was never truly about climate. Climate was the Trojan horse in which the totalitarians are using to implement their anti-free market capitalist authoritarianism.
Marxists believe that the government must control the “means of production”. They can’t stand the idea that private citizens or the private sector have that level of control in our country. Whoever controls the means of production controls the country, controls the world. Because the modern-day means of production is dependent upon machinery and automation which need energy to operate, the authoritarians are attempting to control the energy supply under the guise of climate change. If the government can control the energy supply, they can control the means of production even if the means of production are “owned” by private citizens or the private sector. When the government controls the energy supply, they can dictate to every company what to do, what to say, what to think. If a big manufacturing company does not have access to energy to power their machinery, then it has to shutter its doors. If the government can dictate which people receive energy and under what conditions, then in essence, they control that company, they control the means of production, and they have completely destroyed the capitalist system.
That is what this is all about. They want to control the country and they can dictate to every individual how to live their lives, through controlling the energy supply. That is why they are so hell-bent on everybody driving electric cars. When every car must be plugged into the grid, then the government can track everywhere that car goes, the government can tax us on every mile that we drive, and if the government doesn’t like our politics, they can shut down the grid to us. If we don’t support the regime, then the regime can deny us the electricity we need to live and survive.
Right now, we have less than a month supply of diesel fuel left in this country. Who is going to have the power over all those companies that rely on diesel fuel to operate when the government is the only entity that can bring more diesel fuel into this country? Will the government distribute the diesel fuel to the companies based on their political beliefs? Woke companies get diesel fuel to operate, and non-woke companies will get no diesel fuel so their trucks cannot move their products.
We see glimpses of this all the time. A person uses the wrong pronoun or posts a conservative belief on the Internet, and he is fired from his job, he is cancelled from society, his life is destroyed. Over the last two years, the FBI has targeted people who have questioned the results of the 2020 election, and parents who spoke out against far-left ideologies being taught to their children at public school.
This has bled over into corporate America with ESG which stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance. The biggest financial and investment firms, like Black Rock, are all in on ESG. They factor in how woke a company is before deciding whether or not to invest in it. They only invest in companies that promote the far-left ideologies such as climate change, even if those investments will not produce the greatest returns for their clients.
Brian T. Moynihan, CEO of Bank of America was open about his committed to ESG through their pursuit of net zero, and decarbonizing companies. He said, “If they’re going to be able to do this [combat climate change], there’s got to be technologies and scale - and who’s going to create that scale? It’s the purchase power of the big firms.” The big firms are going to use its purchase power to implement the climate change agenda. At the Council for Foreign Relations in October, John Kerry echoed those sentiments when he said, “in Glasgow we were encouraged that over 450 private sector financial firms, responsible for $130 trillion in assets, committed to net zero… And we need the financial institutions of our country to be at the table and help do that, because no government has enough public money to make this happen.”
Regardless of the fact that ESG investing is a violation of these firms’ fiduciary responsibility to their clients, they are also destroying the country through ESG investing because the best companies will not always get the investment dollars they need to expand and grow because they don’t toe the far-left ideological line. But ESG is merely a snapshot of what we will be getting when the government controls the energy supply. Not only won’t non-woke companies get the investment dollars they need to grow, they won’t get the energy they need to actually operate.
Klaus Schwab, the head of the far-left World Economic Forum, in a recent article on WEF’s website, revealed the left's ultimate goal when he wrote, “Every country, from the United States to China, must participate [in the ‘Great Reset’], and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed.” He went to conclude, “In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.” At the World Economic Forum this year, our climate czar John Kerry exposed his hidden agenda when he explained how climate change can create "a brand new, unbelievable economy, globally, in the world, the greatest transformation ever.”
To set the record straight, capitalist system that they want to destroy is the least oppressive economic system in human history. Capitalism is the freest, the fairest, the most democratic and open system humans have ever devised. Capitalism has lifted more people out of poverty than every other economic system in the history of the world combined. It is not even close. Socialism and Communism, on the other hand, are the most oppressive systems there is. Socialism and communism have driven more people into poverty and have caused the deaths of more innocent people than any other economic system in human history. Dismantling capitalism opens the door to ushering in the types of authoritarian systems that Greta Thunberg is falsely blaming on capitalism. But that is exactly what the left wants to do, and that is the endgame for the climate change activists.
Their hidden agenda is to get everybody thinking and behaving exactly the same way. The left who constantly berates the rest of the country about diversity, diversity, diversity, really does not believe in diversity. The only diversity they see is the color of someone’s skin which should be irrelevant. The diversity that makes America great, the diversity that is our strength, is not the diversity of skin color, the diversity which is our strength, is the diversity of thought, but that is the exact diversity that the totalitarians oppose. They want everybody thinking exactly the same way. But when everybody’s thinking exactly the same way there is no expansion of thought, there is no creativity, there is no new innovation, we become stagnant and stunted. And that is what these people are driving us to – 330 million people with many different skin colors but all walking in lock step, thinking, acting, speaking the exact same way.
