This started out as a response to a comment by Smoking Lamp:
The activists present these as local grass roots initiatives, but the global timing of multiple, simultaneous initiatives speaks otherwise.
Tobacco Control is global in nature, and highly centrally organised. They are engaged in a deliberate, organised, systematic cultural war, while always pretending themselves to be driven by local grass root initiatives and motivated by health concerns.
I don’t think there’s any genuine grass root antismoking movement. I think I would have met a few members of it by now, if there had been. The antismoking activists are all employess. They are being paid to do a job.
I also don’t think it’s got anything at all to do with health. I think the war on smoking is a cultural war, and it’s part of a wider cultural war on everything traditional.
Global warming alarmism is another wing of this wider war. That also is a cultural war on a settled way of life. It’s a war on fossil fuels and cars and central heating. It’s an economic and political war.
LGBTQ is another cultural assault, this time on sexual identity. It’s an attack on normal, standard heterosexuality.
The war on Christianity is another cultural attack. It’s an attack on the religious foundations of society.
Where’s the attack coming from? From global institutions of one kind or other. The UN. The WHO. Greenpeace. The EU. And most of the governments of the world. And most politicians. And the mainstream media everywhere.
Consider the last two (or three or four) British Prime Ministers. Was Theresa May actually any kind of real Conservative at all? And was David Cameron either? They were all snakes.
Is there any difference between any of the political parties? In recent years Labour, Conservative, and Lib Dem have all been the same. They all had the same progressive values. They were all Green. They were all politically correct. And all antismoking.
Anyone who is a cultural traditionalist comes in for continuous venomous attack. Examples: Donald Trump and Nigel Farage. Or Roger Scruton.
In the past, revolutions were conducted from bottom to top. The revolutionaries overthrew governments. But this time it goes from top to bottom. This time the revolutionaries are already in government, and they have set out to overthrow the people. And in this they set out to attack every single one of the people’s beliefs and customs. The people are to be remade in the image of their governments.
But the people are beginning to revolt. Brexit was a sort of Peasants’ Revolt. And so also was the election of Donald Trump.
And this revolt really ought to be a revolt against everything “progressive” and globalist. It should be a revolt against the UN, and against the EU, and against the WHO, and against Greenpeace, and against LGBTQ, and against Global Warming Alarmism, and against all corrupt political parties and politicians. It should be a re-establishment of traditional, conservative beliefs. It should be a restatement of Christianity. It should be an end to “progress” and instead be a return, a reversal, a volte face, an about-turn, a U-turn.
We need to stop going forward, and start going backwards. Because, from time to time, there are occasions when you need to stop the car, and put it into reverse, and reverse back as far as necessary. Such occasions arise when one has reached a dead end, or a cliff edge, or a broken bridge.
And it has to be an old-fashioned, grass roots, bottom-up revolution, a counter-revolution against the top-down, progressive, globalist revolution.
We need to reverse things like this:
As predicted, Theresa May’s lame-duck government has gone ahead and signed the £1 trillion suicide note committing the UK to ‘Net Zero’ decarbonisation by 2050.
As I was saying, Theresa May isn’t a conservative: she’s a revolutionary. For the decarbonisation of the UK over the next 30 years, if it could be done, would be a revolution.
And Boris looks set to be no different:
