The Laziest Generations

At the turn of the last century workers and students around the world were willing to take to the streets, launch revolutions, and battle the agents of the wealthy elite to death, if need be, in order to advance basic human rights of justice and equality for all, fair and living wages, and tolerable living conditions.

In the United States, the monopolies of the Rockefeller, Carnegie, and Vanderbilt were broken up and in Europe lethargic and impassionate monarchies were overthrown by popular worker-led revolutions.

Fast forward the calendar to the present and the world is witnessing the same ingredients that forced change in the early 1900s.

However, unlike the progressive popular movements of the early 20th century, workers and students in Greece and other nations afflicted by the global banking-imposed austerity programs, lose their steam after holding a few general strikes, marches on parliament, and the occasional overturning of a police car.

Some have even proposed abolishing the controversial global institution altogether.

While the international press has largely ignored the stinging criticism so far, the small cadre of liberty-minded environmental experts, activists, and lawmakers seemed optimistic. The climate alarmism of a few years ago, for example, is virtually “dead” despite overwhelming media support.

On Thursday, following the stunning implosion of the science behind global-warming theories, the whole topic has largely taken a back seat to new UN allegations — overpopulation, decreasing biodiversity, and a lack of “sustainability.” But those overhyped fears may well collapse soon as well.
