Best post I’ve read all week

Found via Sissy Willis, back in 2004, Thomas Sowell was interviewed by the American Enterprise Institute:

There’s something Eric Hoffer said: “Intellectuals cannot operate at room temperature.” There always has to be a crisis–some terrible reason why their superior wisdom and virtue must be imposed on the unthinking masses. It doesn’t matter what the crisis is. A hundred years ago it was eugenics. At the time of the first Earth Day a generation ago, the big scare was global cooling, a big ice age. They go from one to the other. It meets their psychological needs and gives them a reason for exercising their power.

This quote is just the start of an article by Ed Driscoll that rips open a liberal’s brain and displays the disgusting contents. I’m reading Thomas Sowell’s “Conquest and Cultures” now. It’s very good.

    Interestingly we are actually in the six cycle of a climate crisis. We started with the coming ice age in the early 1900’s and we’ve just swung between an new ice age or we’re gonna fry ever since.

    One of the many reasons to hold AGW worsipers in contempt, they can’t even get hysterical about a new scam. Same shit, different decade.
