Are You Afraid of Change or Afraid of Stupidity?

April 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 136

Are you a change agent? Many young people say they are, but do they really have any clue as to what that means? Doubtful, however that doesn't stop them from signing up, adding friends, and marching in step for the cause, the cause they really don't understand, and perhaps if they did fully comprehend it all, wouldn't have touched it with a ten-foot pole. Such is the challenge of youth, some things I guess you just have to learn the hard way. Okay so, let's talk shall we?

There seems to be a re-occurring theme happening as socialist thinking and left-leaning academia promote their alternative energy dreams and global warming alarmism. In fact, it's a little unnerving as now they are using social pressure to turn the tide and prop up their failing policies and push, almost as a last stand. When anyone points out their failures in the alternative energy sector or their false and misleading evidence of global warming bathed and cloaked into pretend-empirical evidence, they retort;

"Oh, you are just afraid of change," as if they can now play psychologist and help us over this behavioral issue?

What on Earth are they thinking, do they really believe they can call us "afraid" to try their new scheme? As if it is a personal behavioral disorder that we don't approve of their nonsensical and economically unsustainable plan - yes, somehow they believe that those who supposedly cannot see their vision - are actually "afraid of change" which I must say I find completely laughable.

Oh sure, clean water and clean air are a concern to all, but their schemes are not actually better for the environment and these new alternative energy concepts aren't even viable. Worse, they've created yet another "bubble" and joined in this common theory that this will usher in a new age of energy, jobs, and a robust growing economy. What a bunch of nonsense.

Look, I am perfectly okay with a new innovation that works, one which is cost effective, efficient, reliable, and also helps the environment - but that's not what is being produced, funded, or coming forth via tax payer guaranteed loans to (let me use an old Beltway technical term here) "the pigs feeding at the trough" and yes, folks, we've been had.

Okay so, are you a "change agent" and hoping for utopia? Well then, it's time to use your mind and come up with viable solutions, not march in step to the beat of those who wish to hijack the energy sector for their own personal gain, at all of our expense. It makes no sense whatsoever to destroy the reliable energy we are using today, unless we have a viable replacement - we don't - and even if we did, we should not prop up such a vital sector of our economy making it weak.

Rather the new alternative energy sector must compete on price, efficiency, pollution output, reliability, and abundance. Right now it can't, it doesn't. If those who want to be "Change Agents" really want to impress everyone, come up with a viable alternative, clue; Solar and Wind are more costly than what we have now, require CO2 to create, put out more toxic types green house gases during manufacturing and installation.

If you want change, bring real change, change for the better, don't become another "bubble builder" as our economy has been through enough of that already. Use your mind to come up with something that works. Do not to follow in lock-step of those who use every single psychological trick in the book to turn your life mission into their financial and pet project gain, at everyone else's expense. Think on it.
