democracy has had some notable champions in the english speaking world, starting with the likes of john locke, and progressing to the great compiler of the english common law, sir william blackstone. the colonies have contributed their share with jefferson, jay, madison and hamilton who were the great exponents of how best to fashion the edifice and institution of government to foster its aims, and preserve its heritage.
and, today, i wish to pay sincere homage to a latter day champion of democracy, and truth in public discourse, that being owed to lord christopher monckton, an englishman of incredible stature, and champion of democracy.
he reminds us that the spoken word can move men, and that careful exposition and explanation can expose the most devious schemes and carefully laid artifice, and that logic can divest the cloak of respectability hiding deliberately pursued scientific falsehood.
monckton almost single handily exposed the climate treaty for what it was in fact, that being a leftist plan to redistribute western wealth to the united nations bureaucracies, and to inhibit and control the industrial power of the western world.
he did it with courage. resolve. and, a steadfast adherence to the actual facts of the matter.
bravo, lord monckton!! http://wintersoldier2008.typepad.com/summer_patriot_winter_sol/2012/09/a-little-reminder-on-who-derailed-the-obama-express-.html .
what brings this all on?
ice. lots of ice. building over the arctic ocean, at prodigious rates. and, oddly enough, proliferating at marvelous rates in the face of a pronouncement from al gore (that fucking fat phony, not to forward too loose a description of the ignorant prig) that it would be all gone by the year 2015.
that's next year, btw. doesn't look like it is gonna happen.
