Not the Serenity Prayer

About Rick Altman

Possibly just another 'Climate Cassandra' crying 'Wolf' in cyberspace. However, the moral of the old children's story is that the Wolf eventually turned up!

    Excellent quote. Tolerance of the unacceptable is unacceptable. It is criminal when too much is at stake. And what could be more than Earth?

      Thanks Patrice. Maybe if more countries had governments that were so clearly ideologically-blinded to the consequences of the policies they pursue – as is that ‘in power’ in Canada – we would have greater levels of popular activism in the World as a whole?

        Well, I used to think the same, long ago. For example that the coming of Reagan would make the USA revolt. Instead, it’s the opposite that happened; democrats, led by BO, now adulate Reagan. Hitler (I know you consider pathological to use Nazism as a paradigm) laughed about this sort of things. He said:”Our opponents believe that the youth will rise against us. But we own the youth.” Namely, propaganda works, and the bigger, the better. Sad to admit, but the truth. In any case the USA is much more right wing now than when Reagan appeared.

        Au contraire! On this occasion at least, your reference to Hitler’s manipulation of people and facts seems legitimate (as opposed to contrived). However, one can very easily overdo it; and so devalue its currency!

      Tolerance of the unacceptable is unacceptable. Agreed. If there’s one thing I really cannot stand, it’s intolerance! 🙂
