The view from the shop floor.

Global warming and climate change,  from our point of view.

If you have a problem, you can either find a solution or adjust to it.   Global warming is being bandied about as  a potential problem.  What or whom is causing it, is it actually occurring, are we headed into an ice age, etcetera.  We seem to be arguing amongst ourselves with particular rancor.  The reason the Democrat an Republican leadership differ with the rank and file democrats and republicans on this subject boils down to money.  Who is going to gain power and money based upon global warming?

Red China, the model upon which our leadership bases their aspirations for ultimate power over us, had a problem with too many flies.  As most people know, flies live about 3 days, during which they must find a mate and bury their eggs in a nutritive substance for their larvae to consume.  Some high ranking party member, possibly even Mao himself, decided that there were too many flies, and directed everyone in the country to participate in a national day of swatting flies.  This illustrates the difference between the rank and file workers and the supporters of a ruling class.  The ruling class, not bothering to learn the cause of the problem, directs the working class to address the symptom regardless of the effectiveness or costs that the working class must incur to do so.  Nobody was asked if they could take time off from producing income for their family to live on and swat flies, they were directed to do so by some member of the ruling class, and they complied or were punished.  America does not have a fly problem.  We know to bury the shit that flies lay their eggs in, and that prevents the flies from being born.

So do we have a global warming problem, and are we going to address it in the manner that some high ranking member of the ruling class directs?  Al Gore says that we should pay him and his backers to regulate all of our behavior that may be related to the production of gasses that may or may not be contributing to possible global warming.  The alternative is to let  the market address global climate change.

The market response to any predicted problem is for an entrepreneur to develop a solution, and when the solution is needed, the entrepreneur sells the solution and becomes rich.  Anyone who thinks ahead and works hard can become rich, they donít have to be born into money to make money.  Solutions that are relevant and effective are adopted rapidly, while most dumb ideas fade quickly into oblivion.  

The Capitalistís response to global climate change would be for interested individuals to predict the change, predict the effects it will have, and position themselves to profit from the change.  Once positioned to profit from the change, the normal behavior of  an entrepreneur would to promote the problem from which they will profit.  This tendency is usually counterbalanced by people who are profiting from current conditions who work to prevent change that will decrease their income.  The net result has been, that when a problem has occurred in America, somebody has foreseen it and developed a solution, which when we have that problem, we then buy, apply and go on with our lives.

The ruling classís promotion of climate change illustrates that they are capitalists.  They positioned themselves to profit from global warming by setting up a complex carbon accounting and transfer scheme which they would regulate and profit from, which would increase their control over the economy while making them even richer.  Now they are promoting the problem and preventing alternative solutions.  

Cap and trade is the scheme that Al Gore and his backers have designed.  The ruling class wants to use the police to enforce caps upon the amount of carbon dioxide that we exhale, and if we need to breath more than someone else, then we need to go to them and buy a carbon credit from someone else who isnít working as hard, and Al Gore gets a commission on the transaction.  They want to force everyone in the world into their artificial marketplace for carbon use permission and profit every time someone needs to breathe.  

The people who are breathing donít want to either stop, or have to pay Al Goreís backers ever time they breathe.  They point out that climate change is natural occurrence, and that humanity has adapted to it in the past by moving, as different areas became fertile, and other areas became deserts.  The existing ruling class is hampered by the lack of dictatorial control over Americans, and would lose money if a large number of people moved in response to climate change.  So the solution that Al Gore is championing is to stop all climate change and get richer in the process.  

The proponents of regulating climate change by regulating the working people of the world, are addressing the symptoms for their own benefit at the expense of the working class, as Mao did by having a national day of swatting flies.   The working class just wants to get rid of the shit and go on with their lives.

Early Voting

We shouldnít accept a bad deal, just because we are afraid of getting a worse deal.

I used to think that people who voted should be rewarded.  Now that I have grown up, I believe people should have to struggle to vote.  For it would be the most appropriate time to give homage to all those who paid the real price of freedom by paying a small price to vote.  For just as our freedom has been bought, and must be protected, with blood, sweat and toil, so too must all of our rights.  The sacrifice our freedom and other rights require must be ours or at least freely given, else we buy it with the toil of others; and what after all is slavery?

On the question of liberty, as a principle, we are not what we have been. When we were the political slaves of King George, and wanted to be free, we called the maxim that "all men are created equal" a self-evident truth, but now when we have grown fat, and have lost all dread of being slaves ourselves, we have become so greedy to be masters that we call the same maxim "a self-evident lie." The Fourth of July has not quite dwindled away; it is still a great day--for burning fire-crackers!
