(Rallying Patriots) – The total mass hysteria over the coronavirus is slowly, but surely beginning to subside, which might be why radical left-wing globalists are now switching up their fear mongering to focus on climate change, once again utilizing the lockdown strategy as a means of annihilating the economic prosperity of the West.
According to the folks over at Big League Politics, Mariana Mazzucato, a professor at the Economics of Innovation and Public Value Center located at the University College London is already hard at work to get things staged and ready for climate lockdowns in the event that extremely high rates of taxation and centralized power are not exercise over the economy.
“Under a ‘climate lockdown,’ governments would limit private-vehicle use, ban consumption of red meat, and impose extreme energy-saving measures, while fossil-fuel companies would have to stop drilling,” Mazzucato stated in her white paper entitled, “Avoiding a Climate Lockdown.”
She goes on to say that the only way we can stop what she calls the inevitability of climate lockdowns is to “overhaul our economic structures and do capitalism differently,” which essentially is another way of saying ditch the capitalism altogether and replace it with socialism.
“[G]overnment assistance to business must be less about subsidies, guarantees, and bailouts, and more about building partnerships. This means attaching strict conditions to any corporate bailouts to ensure that taxpayer money is put to productive use and generates long-term public value, not short-term private profits,” Mazzucato wrote in her paper.
“Because markets will not lead a green revolution on their own, government policy must steer them in that direction. This will require an entrepreneurial state that innovates, takes risks, and invests alongside the private sector,” Mazzucato went on to say.
Mazzucato’s writings are a big smash hit with many of our least favorite Democratic politicians who use her pieces to make the case for justified power grabs. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is apparently one of Mazzucato’s disciples, having incorporated many of her writings into her policy ideas, such as using “federal R & D to create domestic jobs and sustainable investments in the future.”
And of course, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a big fan, what with being socialist and all.
What’s most disturbing is the impact that Mazzucato seems to be having on the GOP. Rep. Marco Rubio actually cited Mazzucato in one of his proposals, “American Investment in the 21st Century,” which is nothing more than capitulation to the left.
“We need to build an economy that can see past the pressure to understand value-creation in narrow and short-run financial terms,” Rubio wrote in the opening parts of the proposal, “and instead envision a future worth investing in for the long-term.”
This should make it abundantly clear that the folks who are in charge of our country right now have no intention of ever allowing us to get back to the way life was before all of the COVID-19 lockdowns. When we allowed them all to get away with doing this once, they got greedy for the power and seized this opportunity to exert authority over the people of this country.
