First Gay Marriage, Now Global Warming?

The loony elites have had enough with this whole "democracy" thing. Like their soulmates (pardon the pun) in Al Qaeda, the lefties know they are right and are happy to force their beliefs on the rest of us.

The most blatant example here in Massachusetts is, of course, re-defining the legal definition of marriage over the will of the people, then denying the people the right to vote on it. No matter how you feel about the marriage issue, this is a clear rejection of the notion of "consent of the governed," which was the fundamental principle behind the founding of America.

Now comes this observation regarding global warming and those silly little people (like me) who think our governments should answer to the people:

Transport policy-makers should start preparing now for a dramatic reduction in motorised travel that will be brought about by carbon rationing, one of the country's leading environmental thinkers told LTT this week.

Just start reading the runes because what's going to happen is the demand for road, rail and air travel is going to start falling away just as soon as we have rationing," says Mayer Hillman in an interview with the magazine.

Hillman, senior fellow emeritus at the Policy Studies Institute, says carbon rationing is the only way to ensure that the world avoids the worst effects of climate change. And he says that the problems caused by burning fossil fuels are so serious that governments might have to implement rationing against the will of the people.

When the chips are down I think democracy is a less important goal than is the protection of the planet from the death of life, the end of life on it," he says. "This has got to be imposed on people whether they like it or not."

Democracy, schemocracy--you peons are just wrong! Do what you're told, put out your cigarettes, buckle your seat belts and pay your taxes! We super-smart people will run the world.

Why look at what a terrific job we've done with the public, United ... never mind! We're right and you're wrong!
