lefty reader at Andrew Bolt’s spells things out:

You people don’t seem to understand. I’ll spell it out slowly for you.

The war is over. The sceptics are vanquished except for a few die-hards fighting on like those Japanese soldiers on remote islands after WW2. As I wrote yesterday, it doesn’t matter if AGW is real or not now because the world is going green, the dogs may bark but the caravan moves on. Get with the program and help advance your country! …

I want to live in a creative, brave, generous, warm and intelligent society and nation. I don’t want to be surrounded by greedy, snivelling wretched cowards …

I get the feeling China would be more suited to the vision I have for the type of society I want to live.

It sure would be warmer; China is allegedly opening a new coal-fired power plant every ten days or so (warning: source not known for accuracy). As for “generous” and “creative”, how could our young visionary resist the lure of a nation that sends a bill for the bullet to families of executed criminals?

    1. Yep, when I think of “generous, warm, intelligent” society, China is the first one that comes to mind. Really, what is in the water at the universities these days?

    1. Hope that commenter has an adventurous palate.

    1. China is so kind and caring. It mows down thousands of naive university students with tanks and makes Bob Hawke cry. I so want my kids to live in that society, where they can use bear paws to treat their health problems, and tiger stuff and bits of poisonous mushrooms, and, and…

    1. #2 paco, have I got a 1000yo stinky egg curry recipe for you. I’ve just put it on to cook, I have you down for delivery June 3, 3007. Should be good.

    1. “The sceptics are vanquished…”

      Does he mean like Albert Einstein is vanquished, and Galileo is vanquished, and Darwin is vanquished, and every other scientist who was right on the facts whether those facts were popular or not is vanquished?  In the end, truth wins out.  However, if the esteemed commentator is saying that in this case it won’t, then the world will be worse off for it, not better.

    1. It doesn’t matter if science has been irretrievably corrupted by the watermelon brigade? Interesting. I’m not sure how this wanker’s utopia can include an ‘intelligent’ component if it’s fundamentally based on deliberate misrepresentation and willful ignorance.

    1. #4 Maree: Er, yes. Heh. Give me a call when it’s ready. And if I’m not at home, just leave a message on the answering machine.

    1. it doesn’t matter if AGW is real or not now because the world is going green,

      Yes, people, it IS a religion. Another made-up-on-the-fly crackpot religion at that.

    1. That “bill the family for the bullet” thing seemed so barbaric until Terry Hicks came along.

    1. #8:

      Maybe we should push for enviromentalism to be accepted as a real religion. Given that most of its adherents fancy themselves enlightened secularists, it might lead to an entertaining series of cranial explosions.

    1. Maybe he can get a job as the president of a pet food company? I understand there’s just been a recent opening there for such a position.

    1. And their food exports make excellent population control devices to protect Mother Gaia.

    1. Actually, he is correct that in the political environment, it does not matter if AGW is correct or not.  That battle is well and truly lost because fear mongering works. Cheer up, vengeance might be achieved in ten years time, if not sooner as modeling improves, time passes by.  Ever heard of Chicken Little?
      In the meantime, the key response is to make sure the cure is not worse than the disease.  There is no doubt that if the likes of Flannery and co were in charge this would be so.  Check out the grief that occurs whenever solutions that do not include dwelling in caves are mentioned.

      Interesting, isn’t it, that what is important is that we go green, not whether AGW is real or not.

      Sooo… leaving for China, when?

      And what’s with the Chinese needing all their food to be some sort of aphrodisiac?  I’d think they, of all people, wouldn’t need anything like that.

    1. What he means by China isn’t so much how China actually is: it’s the political system which makes it possible to regulate every aspect of the lives of others he finds so attractive (with like minded chaps in charge, of course).  He obviously hasn’t read animal farm.

    1. Tianenmen Square, Once Child Policy complete with forced abortions and sterilisations, involuntary collectivism and shipping peasants from one part of the country to the other because of some policy.

      Yeah, that does it for me.

      Oh, and how about their record on looking after the wildlife?

      Where’s PETA when you need rabid animal activists? Why aren’t they over there shutting down the restaurants and markets where you can help yourself to endangered species?

    1. Ah! Yes! A far-off enchanted world where rivers run with all colours of the rainbow, but lighting of fireworks near them is not recommended.

    1. It never ceases to amaze me how leftists will denounce “greed” and then, without batting an eye, declare their support for political systems that give the state absolute power over people. It’s as if they consider the acquisition of wealth, freely given by others and freely given away to acquire goods and services from others, to be evil, but the acquisition of the power to dictate to others to be good.

      And, of course, their definition of “greed” usually means objecting to paying 50% of your income in various taxes.

    1. Is this guy occupied sufficiently to help clear his mind of cant. Don’t think so.

      Maybe he could bolster the crowd at Alice Springs in preparation for Bryli’s post sentencing charade.

      Or he could go to China and stand outside a court house and protest something. No that wouldn’t work.

      Maybe if he was off the drugs and changed his peer group. Unlikely.

      Oh dear there are so many of them.

    1. Again with the vision thing.  Why is it that lefties always expect governments to not only provide for their every material need, they also see it as the government’s job to give them a reason for living – a ‘vision’? I suspect that Mark of Moorabbin, like all the others who love to string together words like creative, brave, generous, warm and intelligent, is probably a short-tempered, self-obsessed, timid, carping, close-fisted pain in the arse, like every other moonbat it has been my misfortune to meet.

    1. greedy, snivelling wretched cowards …

      It’s fascinating how eager “progressive” types are to abuse their fellow citizens.

      When they naturally think in such terms, how easily they swallow the ravings of a Vyshinsky or Goebbels!

    1. I agree that China would be the best place for this person to live – he may even get to meet the ‘greedy, snivelling wretched cowards …’ who ruled China as their very own feudal estate for decades and whose idiot and ignorant policies were responsible for the death of millions.

      Somehow I don’t think this is what the gushing fool had in mind. No doubt he visualises China as a replica of those painful posters in the 1960s of heroic Communist Chinese ‘workers’ and ‘students’ -I’ll bet he wears a Che t-shirt too.

    1. Poor old Mark.  He really wanted to let fly with some old-time petit-bourgeoisie-counter- revolutionary-deviationist-lickspittle-running- dog gear, didn’t he.
      And what’s with the Chinese needing all their food to be some sort of aphrodisiac?
      Or looking like it died screaming.

    1. China is a wonderfully creative society.
      It’s first two aiports were called “Terminal 1” and “Terminal 2”. It’s newest airport is called “Terminal 3”.
      That may explain why all its children are called “Number 1”
