Gang of Nine deluded dictators.
By David Flint
‘If you want a vision of the future,’ wrote Orwell, ‘imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.’
Let us hope that any vision of 21st century Australia is not one of the masked DANSTAPO storming the home of that terrified, young pregnant mother, Zoe Buhler. Pinning her arms back and handcuffing her, they took her away. Her crime? Daring to propose a Freedom Day for Ballarat.
Let us hope, too, that the vision is not one of the Gang of Nine (aka the National Cabinet) who have seized power, all so obviously deluded they believe they can change the climate.
Let us hope this is not as bad as Barack Obama’s when he won the Democrat presidential nomination, claiming this was ‘…the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.’
Given the Nobel Peace Prize for no more than winning office, it is not so surprising he judged it in the West’s interest to fund the Iranian mullahs’ nuclearisation programme and to transfer manufacturing and IP, including that purloined, to communist China.
Rather than requiring scientific proof, most of the Gang of Nine believe computer modelling to be scientific evidence of global warming, thus ignoring the great statistician George Box’s warning that modelling is ‘always wrong’.
What is even worse is that the Gang of Nine were not panicked by run-of-the-mill computer modelling, but instead by modelling notorious for having a long record of exaggeration, including that done by London’s Imperial College.
At the same time, they ignored easily accessible world’s best practice — Taiwan’s, a country the communists insist be treated as a leper.
What Taiwan’s experience demonstrates is that it was most important to control overseas entry and to protect the vulnerable but that it was extremely foolish to lockdown, even briefly, the productive economy.
