    Some people with personal anxiety issues really believe that it can be relieved by forcing someone else to do something they would not otherwise do.
    Then it can become a movement with a theory and banner.
    International Socialism, National Socialism, and more recently Liberalism.
    Banners have included the “Genius of the Emperor”.
    “Infallibility of the Pope”
    “The Divine Right of Kings”, of course advised by priests that dreamed up the concept.
    “Genius of the Federal Reserve System”
    “97 Percent”
    The problem is that anxious people can never be satisfied so, collectively, control freaks never cease in their ambition.

    • James D says:

      It’s important to note that Leftism in general must be authoritarian. While the problem might be classified as anxiety or being a “control freak”, I think that’s a bit too general, as plenty of anxious control freaks aren’t in favor of massive government control. Leftism is more specific: having identified a problem, their response is never to politically negotiate a solution that is amenable to all parties involved, but instead is to claim that the problem indicates that the entire system is broken and must be fixed. Because they believe the entire system is broken, all the concerns of people who have very good reasons for the system to be “broken” don’t matter to a Leftist.

      To a Leftist, there are no “trade-offs”, hence authoritarianism. This isn’t merely anxiety, but anxiety plus the understandable-but-naive philosophy that “all the things” have to be “fixed”, not just each iterative concern.

      • Caleb Shaw says:

        Capitalism is a two party system. Yes, it involves bickering and wheeling-and-dealing, and yes, both sides are selfish. But when it works both buyer and seller get what they want.

        Communism is a one party system. Despite a lot of talk about “abolishing greed”, a one party system always degenerates into the tyranny of a Hitler, Stalin or Mao, where one side gets what it wants and all others, who beg to differ, get purged or “reeducated” (which is mental murder.)

    • GW Smith says:

      Well, it’s because they’re always right. Just ask them.

    • Anziani says:

      I might remind you that “Fallibility of the Pope” applies ONLY to church religious matters, nothing beyond that.

  2. John F. Hultquist says:

    The new and improved picture dictionary will have this fool’s face beside the word stupid.

  3. Gator says:

    Well at least now they are now admitting that their agenda has nothing to do with CO2 or climate.

  4. prometheus says:

    They aren’t even pretending not to be communists anymore. Sigh.

    • rah says:

      I think that is a good thing for the US. As the democrats see who can go the furthest left I am enjoying the show. The wackier they get the better as far as I’m concerned. I am really looking forward to the 2020 elections. I am also enjoying the sheer panic the deep state and their press are displaying after AG Barr served notice that he will be investigating their attempted coup. I pray the guy is a real straight shooter who will follow through on this.

      • paul courtney says:

        rah: Agree on all points. Month ago or more (time flies…) several right leaning commenters were saying Ali Cortez was veeeery dangerous, but I still don’t see it. She is saying what the left has been saying, but in the past they would not say it outside the bubble of progs and their friends in the press (who could always be counted on not to report it). Now she’s just sayin’ it, and the press agrees so much, they think it’s ripe, the public is ready. Since all dissenting voices have been removed from the bubble, they (leftists and press) think this is how Trump will lose!! The delusion is strong with them, and I think the public will turn on ’em as she gets crazier.

        This article is another example of leftist talking to leftist, saying what he really thinks. Most folks hear “capitalism” and tune it out. Those who listen (and aren’t committed leftists) wonder what the problem is. If this guy wants to stop capitalism, he can simply stop buying stuff. They refuse to consider the “micro’ solution. Anyway, I’d rather have them say what they think, unlike Hillary (who would lie about anything she thought, just to keep in practice. Bill never had to practice.)

    From the Ace of Spades blog.

    • Gator says:

      They have been trying to capture new slaves ever since, but we refuse to be ensnared. This makes leftists very angry.

      • raygun says:

        Remember when old LBJ remarked while signing his Great Society welfare programs into law: “I’ll keep them n****s on the democrat plantation and voting democrat for the next 200 years” (1965). I do.

  6. Petit_Barde says:

    Do those leftists actually believe that Marxism will save the planet ?
    Don’t they understand that they are themselves the usefull idiots of way more dangerous Malthusian psychopaths (as Paul R. Ehrlich and his followers) who are pushing their own agenda ?

  7. Taphonomic says:

    I look forward to the day when Monbiot will renounce capitalism and redistribute all his monies.

    • Lance says:

      Don’t hold your breath.!(do as I say not as I do)

    • arn says:

      This won’t happen as
      the real ‘funny’ thing is.

      As soon as you randomly pick 10 democratic politicians
      you will find out that always 80-90% of them are millionaires.
      (and i wonder how many days it will take until AOC becomes one-if she already isn’t)
      How the hell can a hardcore communist politician who never had a real job in his life become so rich while most hardworking non-communists can’t.

      Just google “maxine waters district” and take a look at the photos.
      Then compare it to the photos you get when you google “maxine waters house”
      and you will see the trick they use.

    • John says:

      Global warming is about people who live large telling the rest of us how to live small.

  8. Nicholas McGinley says:

    Why do all these leftists psychopaths have that crazy-eye look?
    Oh, wait…

  9. Dale says:

    So the half-wit alarmists of the world have found a new name for normal climate, “climate breakdown”. Can someone explain to me how exactly a climate can break down?
    Then again, I’m still trying to figure out how apparently some fictitious people can deny climate, deny climate change, manage to get all that supposed money from oil and big business, and so for. I’m still unclear as to how taking money from any fuel company for climate research is bad unless it is from the Rockefellers which have been huge in the oil business, in which case is very good…

  10. MGJ says:

    I do wish that every time people make moronic statements such as this that someone would challenge them by asking the obvious question: tell me, George, what exactly IS capitalism?

    He wouldn’t have a clue – beyond describing it as the aggregate of all the things in the world he didn’t personally like.

  11. Brian D says:

    Just a reminder.

  12. Wan Wei Lin says:

    Almost exactly the words of Lenin. I came across the same thought in Lenin’s book The State and Revolution.

  13. Frank Snyder says:

    That person would send us all to “re-education” camps to be put down.

  14. Cosifantutti says:

    Ever wonder what a guy like George Moonbat does every day? I don’t.

  15. tom0mason says:

    Moonbat knows that the power of envy can move many people.
    That is the left’s method. Yes, the socialist precious lie —

    “Overthrow capitalism! Stop the rich getting richer. Stop the poor getting poorer!”
    As if such a thing could be true.
    Socialism the world over has failed. It certainly always failed to help the poor, it always assists to elevate the socialist elite to dictatorial success.

  16. Jamesxx says:

    But George, the climate is not breaking down

  17. Coeur de Lion says:

    The first thing that happens in a revolution is that the noisy leftists get swept up and are never seen again. I have the three ton truck ready.
