“Fear” at work again?

October 17, 2015 (Riyadh) –
In the October 11th WSJ, page A10 there is a review entitled: “Shut up – Or we will shut you down” http://www.wsj.com/articles/shut-upor-well-shut-you-down-1444429915 A small group of “green” influencers sent President Obama a letter requesting those who do not share their view, those “climate dissenters”, to be punished.
If they have irrefutable science supporting their position and there is no credible science supporting “climate dissenters” why do they want the dissenters punished? Actually the “punishment” they want is to “forcibly silence their opponents.”
I wonder what they think will happen if they do not forcibly silence their opponents. Ask an actuary and he/she will understanding 2tell you that it will show up soon enough. Just like the paradox involved with car accidents, is all “FEAR” driven behavior. My post of 19 September.
There is another phenomenon on top of fear driven behavior afoot here. The ascribing of negative attributes towards others tells us a sad tale of the attributor but scant little about the accused. The homily about when one points their figure at another is followed by the question, “How many fingers are pointing at you the accuser?” The answer is 3. “Let him who is without sin caste the first stone.” Oops, they all left.
The group of environmentalists wants the “climate dissenters” punished because their words are damaging to others. The dissenters are bad, bad people who need to be silenced. Humm…….pause Shouldn’t we just pause for a minute and think about what we are up to here? I guess science and logic are not enough, we need to force people to do the right thing. Must be a different America than the one I grew up in. Hail Cesar!
