Democracy: Boo

Those global warming people sure don’t like democracy much. First Tom Friedman says that China with its communist system is the way to go, then we hear they would prefer something else took over and forced us all to install curly bulbs.

One of the main obstructions to meaningful action is “modern democracy”, he added. “Even the best democracies agree that when a major war approaches, democracy must be put on hold for the time being. I have a feeling that climate change may be an issue as severe as a war. It may be necessary to put democracy on hold for a while.”

Not to put too fine a point on it, but neither the United States, nor Britain, nor any other democracy I can think of “put democracy on hold” as war approached. They all continued to have vibrant democracies.

These people are mental.
