It’s not oft that I drag things out of the archives, but this is an important theme – critical not only to the future of our nation, but also our world. It bears repeating every now and again, and remember in those town hall meetings to ask candidates what their energy policy is. Don’t let them get away with buzz-words like “energy independence” or “alternative fuels research” either. That’s not enough, the stops have to be pulled out and the nation needs to go full-bore towards implementing all energy sources and improvements.
Without further ado I present:
Children of Lightning or Children of Terror?
Mankind is ingenious at tapping the energy bounty provided by nature. From the first fire, to windmills, to water wheels, to today’s electric generating plants we have progressed from superstitious awe and deification of nature to harnessing it to our every need.
Today however we have several movements that question and deny the need for more energy, and we have dangerous tyrants who oppose our advance at every opportunity. These forces all sprang from the romantic era, two driven by an idealized view of nature, and one from a religio-racist view and they all ally when it’s convenient.
There are really only three roadblocks to a great future for us and future generations:
The first consists of nihilistic neo-romantics who would prefer that the rest of humanity didn’t exist at all. Earth-firsters, Greenpeace, Greens, the radical environmentalists, the zero-population groups, all have the same wellspring: that idealized, romantic view of nature and the noble savage.
The other two roadblocks are the groups of Marxist and Islamo-fascist states who hold most of the world’s petrochemical energy resources and their peoples in thrall.
These movements, environmental, Marxist, and tyrannical racism, would prefer that mankind did not advance at all. They look upon you and me as part of a plague of humanity on this planet for either racist, geo-political, or environmental reasons, and they look on America’s dream of a better future for all as the only real opposition to their power and dreams.
