Oh this is beautiful. I hope it opens up a hornets nest. Here is someone (the President of the Czech Republic) equating envrironmentalism with communism. I would agree that only someone who has lived under the tyranny of communism can fully appreciate how valuable "freedom, democracy, the market economy, and prosperity" is.
Now I'm not calling Al Gore a communist, heaven forbid. He is just "a green capitalist" cashing in on this hysteria over global warming. After all, what is more "American" than scamming people and getting rich off it? The real danger to the world goes way beyond sad-sack Al Gore. Read this and think about it and let's talk about it.
Czech prez: Environmentalism is new communism.... (the) Biggest threat to freedom, democracy, the market economy and prosperity'.... the Czech leader said: "It becomes evident that while discussing climate we are not witnessing a clash of views about the environment, but a clash of views about human freedom." "As someone who lived under communism for most of my life I feel obliged to say that the biggest threat to freedom, democracy, the market economy and prosperity at the beginning of the 21st century is not communism or its various softer variants," said Klaus,responding to questions posed by the two lawmakers."Communism was replaced by the threat of ambitious environmentalism." http://globalwarminghoax.wordpress.com/2007/03/20/czech-prez-environmentalism-is-new-communism/ ____________________________________________________________________________________Never
