It's All About System Change (to Socialism), Not Climate Change

It is finally out in the open.  Environmentalism in America has been completely co-opted by the International Socialist Organization (ISO) and the Communist Party USA.  Climate alarmism is all about killing capitalism and replacing it with a left-wing dictatorship.  “Climate change” is the vehicle to rally useful climate idiots.  “System Change Not Climate Change” is the new rallying cry for a socialist revolution.

Has socialism/communism proven to be a better steward of the environment than capitalism?  NRO’s Kevin Williamson sheds some light on the topic:

Under a system that imposed heavy government regimentation upon the economy, direct government ownership of the “commanding heights” of the economy (and the commanded heights, too), a socialist vision of property, etc., the environmental results were nothing short of catastrophic. Setting aside the direct human costs of socialist environmental policy in the twentieth century — the famines, the deformations, the horrific birth defects — socialism was a disaster from the purely environmental point of view, too.

Mr. Williamson goes on to describe some horrific examples of environmental disasters wrought by the leaders of socialist governments during the twentieth century.  His article is worth a read.

Since capitalism is an economic system separate from government, as opposed to socialism, there are    checks and balances in place.  Some of these come from government regulation (which ideally should be minimal), but are primarily derived from the forces of competition within the market.

The primary problem with socialism is that once you have the regulators and the regulated working for the same people, mismanagement and corruption inevitably occur and become pervasive.   Environmental nightmares naturally ensue.

The last photo is one I took from my hotel window a few years ago in Shenzhen, China.  Communism is the steward of this environment, of course.  The air was headache-inducing and nearly unbreathable.  The river running through the city was black as tar and almost as viscous.   Knowing that the results of leftist efforts are almost always 180 degrees opposite of their stated intensions, this could be a glimpse into America’s future if they are successful.

Thomas Lifson adds: It isn't just demonstrator rabble unmasking themselves. To much fanfare from the left media, Naomi Klein, who passes for a leading intellectual on the left, last week published a book that openly states that capitalism must be destroyed in order to save the planet.  This desription comes from the author's own website, naomiklein.org (the.org is nice nonprofit touch from somebody about to collect royalties):

Forget everything you think you know about global warming. The really inconvenient truth is that it’s not about carbon—it’s about capitalism. The convenient truth is that we can seize this existential crisis to transform our failed economic system and build something radically better. 

In her most provocative book yet, Naomi Klein tackles the most profound threat humanity has ever faced: the war our economic model is waging against life on earth.

Wait — did I say communists? Isn’t that a bit of an exaggeration?

Well…no.

At the New York event, many people noticed that gee, there sure are a lot of communists at this march. But in Oakland — always on the cutting edge — the entire “climate change” movement at last fully, irrevocably and overtly embraced communism as its stated goal. Any concerns about “optics” or operating in “stealth mode” were abandoned.

The “climate change” “crisis” is now nothing but the latest justification for “total revolution” and getting rid of capitalism forever.
