    At least we aren’t being forced to eat post-meat like we’re being forced to pay for subsidies to wind and solar companies and tidal R&D. Entrepreneurs make money and the more ignorant and foolish the customer, the more money they can make. In the case of our climate legislation, however, it was passed over our heads and we have an increasingly fascist and neo-malthusian energy policy – and culture.

      Don’t count your free range chickens just yet. A red meat tax is already being pushed for and considered by western governments.

      “At least we aren’t being forced to eat post-meat like we’re being forced to pay for subsidies to wind and solar companies and tidal R&D.”

      Yet.

      “Entrepreneurs make money and the more ignorant and foolish the customer, the more money they can make.”

      That’s rarely true. Entrepreneurs are acutely aware that if the deal between them and their customer isn’t good for both sides they will quickly go out of business.

      Gore is the problem. He’s using his questionable political and media contacts to manipulate both the market and the customer whilst doing considerable damage to public confidence.

        “Gore is the problem. He’s using his questionable political and media contacts to manipulate both the market and the customer whilst doing considerable damage to public confidence.” You need to add, “and lining his considerable pockets.”

        We don’t hear much about him lately on this side of the pond. He might be in a little upcoming hot water.

        Gore is just a very clever and well-connected business man. He has invested in something and then created a market for it and invested in the markets for which he makes the products. Either way, whether you call that being problematic or very clever, the consumer still has a choice, whereas consumers of energy in the UK have hardly any choice because of our Climate Change Acts, UK 2008 and Scotland 2009.

    I don’t know about the US but in the UK we have unelected bodies that have a great power over our lives at the micro level and this includes meat suppressing. They are called quangos and i guess Al Gore falls in to that category.

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/08/18/quangos-will-always-grip-left-no-choice-scrap/

    Its a pay article so here’s a section which gives a flavour of the article.

    “The Advertising Standards Authority announced the first two “sexist” adverts banned under its new gender stereotyping rules. The Institute of Economic Affairs, meanwhile, released a paper finding that targets drawn up by Public Health England to cut sugar from the national diet will make it all but impossible to manufacture parma violets, Liquorice Allsorts and (my favourite) sherbet lemons.

    Steam train operators may need to spend millions in order to comply with health and safety rules ordered by the Office of Rail and Road after a passenger was killed on the (non-steam) Gatwick Express. Not to be outdone, the head of Natural England suggested that grouse moor owners should be prosecuted for the deaths of hen harriers on their land, even if they were not responsible.

    I don’t remember voting for any of this, and the successive governments that have farmed out responsibility for such frustrating meanness have assumed that most people don’t care one way or another. But that is untrue. So widespread have the quangos become that it is impossible not to be annoyed by their inevitably statist and invariably patronising output.”

    So much of lives is being taken over by these bodies and they are increasingly centred on CC philosophy so they go unchallenged. We had the taboo of not discussing anything to do with immigration and race and we got Rotherham and now we have this inability to challenge anything that goes against the acceptance of the CC. The coming of banning meat products is just around the corner but it won’t end there until we are all vegans. Personal freedom is being eroded at an alarming rate and is being unchallenged.

      Not forgetting the charities. Following Cameron’s ‘bonfire of the QUANGO’s’ which was more like a campfire, funding was provided to charities to become the de facto lobbyists and pressure groups the government needed to swing public opinion.

      They now infest everything from government policy to media talking heads. They are perceived as ‘independent’ and objective but are anything but as they only represent one side of an argument and must deliver the messages the government wants or risk losing their funding.

        Indeed HotScot. What is more lamentable is that every single quango you can think of in the U.K. is stuffed full of lib/green snowflake placemen/women/lbtqqi (add your extra human definition here……..?). The majority in place since being appointed by a, so called, conservative majority government. Boris could abolish the lot tomorrow and the general public would barely notice except for the freedom to live their lives without obtrusive quasi-government interference and the lowering of their bills. Obviously, Guardinastas would be up in arms but, then again, most of them will be out of a job anyway. So sad. Unfortunately, Boris does have a bit of form at bottling it when it comes to the crunch. He has about a month to prove himself it seems.

      The US Constitution is pretty clear about not having un-elected, and thus unaccountable, bureaucracies in charge of people. Of course that has been somewhat ignored. However, the new sheriff is gradually draining those swamps. You have heard the shrieks and howls coming from those who depended upon the EPA to shut down business. The very doing away with mountains of regulations across the agencies has lifted the boot of the necks greatly.

        The “new sheriff” may be a bit of a “nyaff” sometimes but he clearly gets a lot right, so were my wife or I in the US, he would get our votes.
        Jealousy must mainly explain his critics’ wrath.

        A good model for our new PM, we hope!

      • August 21, 2019 11:22 am

        Don’t think I would even entertain that he is “nyaff.” I think it is abject fear which governs the critics. His years as an international businessman (degree in Finance from Wharton School of Business of The University of Pennsylvania) he has learned the characters well and knows how they deal and thus how to deal with them.

        The critics tell themselves lies about him and then believe them. So while they are looking at the pretty ball that is the MSM, he is on the other side of the room doing them in. Watch his tweets. They are never without purpose. It is a bonus that they drive the left nuts, but that is a relatively short trip.

      The train thing is utterly ridiculous. Because there weren’t enough signs warning about not putting your head out of the window, Govia were fined £1m when some moron stuck his head out and had it hit by a signal gantry. So now if you ever get stuck on a train with no a/c running you will just boil as there are no windows or they are so tiny.

    And to quote Tacitus (Died c120AD):
    “The more corrupt the State, the more numerous the laws”.

    Mebbe I’m wrong about this but whenever I’ve seen Trump conducting a press conference HE DOES IT RATHER WELL! Which is why we never see it on the BBC who always quote him in the electioneering rant mode. See Al Jazeera and elsewhere.
