A reason why global socialism is to be desired...

... in fact, it's the only reason why global socialism might be desired. [Emphasis mine.]
Eco-terrorists like Al Gore and Greenpeace claim the argument is won and there is no room for debate. In November, Margaret Beckett said that climate change deniers were like Islamic terrorists and shouldn’t have access to the media.

Well the argument hasn’t been won and when the global economy is fucked, people like Gore and Beckett will be the ones responsible. But that’s what the eco-terrorists want - sandal wearing, bearded, left wing hippies want the world's capitalist economies to collapse to pave the way for a global socialist state. They don’t learn from history, you see. They don’t look at every communist government the world has seen and realise that it just doesn’t work, that there will always be a ruling class and that they—the ones who have shown themselves to be rebellious—will be the first ones against the wall when the inevitable purge happens.

That's right, a pogrom against eco-loons is the one reason for desiring a global socialist state.

If, by the way, you should be desirous of reading my opinion of Margaret Beckett's call for "climate-change deniers" to be denied access to the media, you can find it here.
I have not, up till this point, doled out one of my unpleasant and sexually graphic kickings to Margaret Beckett, the woman so ugly that only the most desperate Catholic priest would wish to abuse her. This is because I try not to think about ugly people too much and, frankly, when they come in the form of Margaret Beckett, even my brain can hardly handle the screaming horror of her hideous physiognomy.

In order to look at a picture of her, I normally take the precaution of polishing up my shield to a high shine and regarding the awful thing in the mirror-like surface, lest I be turned to stone on the spot. Oh, Perseus! If only you had killed all of the Gorgons and we would not now be so afflicted.

But, alas, we are; but luckily, Margaret has at least had the decency to keep relatively quiet. Having totally bollocksed up the Farm Payments at Defra, she was reshuffled to an area where it was thought that she couldn't do any harm, i.e. Foreign Office. The thinking obviously was that, since Toni handles all of our foreign policy anyway, Margaret could sit back and not fuck anything up for a while. Well, she certainly has sat back and, when she is not lecturing American college students on subjects of astonishing fatuity instead of attending important NATO meetings, she has generally kept her fucking visage away from my sight.

Unfortunately, my generosity of spirit in rapprochement for her sparing my poor retinas the trauma of seeing what—for want of a better word—we shall call her "face", has come to an end; this is because she has not only shown her face, but also opened her mouth and words have dropped out of it like Gordo's turds dropping into Polly's gaping maw. Only, instead of having a resident scat-muncher to hoover up the excreta, Beckett has splashed it across a national newspaper.

That sets the general tone, although it was something of a warm-up before your humble Devil really got started...

Well yes but seriously does it seem likely that the population of the world could expand tenfold ( and more) and its activity more again and this have no effect. I mean , commonsensically , does that sound likely .I think not, although population panic spreaders vastly overestimated this threat as well with the same cast iron "scientific" bon fides when it was fashionable in the 70s.
Climatologists are hardly likely to conclude that their profession is lying waste of time so we can ignore them but we can also use our own minds and mine tells me there is a core truth.
I am well aware of the warped agenda behind most of the enviro-loons but that does not mean you have to go into an equally psuedo religious denial.It would be more productive to accept a measure of the problem and the issue away from the socialists and EUers . Technology, nuclear power, and the evolution of low birth rates will help but a measure of single issue international cooperation is also going to be required.
A willingness to do this would undermine the case for establishing world government that is quietly proceeding and on which I listened to Norman Tebbit give a masterful lecture.

Of course there will always be leaders, but that doesn't mean it has to be a tiny number of empire-building industrialists, forging a world of sameness, polluting the planet, dictating to governments and turning us all into serfs.
To me that isn't capitalism. What we should be doing is reinstating proper capitalism by grasping the environmental reigns away from the loons and advocating new tech by a new generation of smaller companies.
Then countries could get back their sovereignty, remember who they are, and then forge ahead towards a world of co-operation and diversity.
After all, isn't diversity the key to evolutionary success?

When poor countries become richer their population growth rates will fall and in time the world population will be more or less stable, who cares at what level.

As to MB's proposed ban on climate change sceptics in the media, she has missed the boat, may the current trickle of sceptical articles in the MSM become a flood. In a couple of years' time we'll all be panicking (rightly or wrongly) about Global Cooling!

Socialism/Communism doesn't work. Humans just don't work in that way - a small group will always rise to the top. A communist "government" goes against the ideology of communsm - that everyone is equal. How can you have one group ruling the masses and everyone still be equal?

Again?

Heh.
A post that makes me remember why the Devil is the first blogger on my list that I click.

Remember it's not just Eurocrats and American liberals that have a hard-on for a global socialist state. The Islamists do too, and they think they can subvert it in the service of their goal of a global caliphate. Given how both European governments and the UN itself are currently acting as Islam's lapdogs I have little doubt they'd succeed.

Newmania said: "It would be more productive to accept a measure of the problem.." What problem?

And went on "..but a measure of single issue international cooperation is also going to be required." For what?

We have international co-operation, it's called trade.
