Gavin Newsom wastes not the crisis


Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as "bad luck."     -- Heinlein

Thoughout history, being at the mercy of unmerciful Nature is the normal condition of man. Advances -- flood control projects, air conditioning, weather forecasting, etc. -- which permit man's victimhood to be lessened now and then, are the work of a minority.  When this minority is kept from building dams, building nuclear electric generators, executing brush-clearing plans, installing underground utilities -- people slip more deeply into being victimized by Nature's whims.  This is known as "bad luck."  

And now it is known as "climate change." 

Newsom is adhering to his Alinsky-ite religion:  Never Let a Crisis Go to Waste.  

Anarchotyranny first creates the situation then exploits it.  Or when, say, a combination of bad policy and Nature creates the situation, all you have to do is exploit it!  Win-Win, on the cheap!  If the little people suffer, that's just bad luck.

  1. Does anyone in their right mind believe that "fighting climate change" by mandating all-electric vehicles and enacting a byzantine method of wealth transfer called "climate credits" (I wonder who gets the money?-not really) will do a damn thing to stop wildfires? First we need to want to not burn the state to the ground every year. Then we will find a way. Our Democrat overlords want to burn the state to the ground every year. So I do agree with Newsome on one thing, voting is important...
