Going Green Is A Luxury Good For The Rich At The Expense Of The Poor – Investors.com

Saving The Planet: It used to be said that socialism was the opium of the liberal intelligentsia. But now the drug of choice for the elite is environmentalism.

The dirty little secret of the modern green movement is that it’s become a luxury good for the uber-rich who espouse policies — from carbon taxes to renewable energy standards to closing down coal plants — that impose high costs on poor people who can least afford to pay the green tab.

Well, of course.  It wouldn’t be half as much fun for the Progtard One Percent if they couldn’t stick it to the little guy, good and hard, while doing all that good.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. I don’t see that Liberal/Progressive elitists want to hurt the little guy. But, the little guy is merely an abstraction to them along with the environment. They want to help the LG and save the environment to lower their guilt at succeeding in a business or through crony connections with the government.

    They are making the LG pay more now to save the LG from paying for more air-conditioning later. They are bestowing a benefit.

    “I don’t see that Liberal/Progressive elitists want to hurt the little guy.”

    B.S., they don’t give a shit about the little guy. It is all about power, dogma, and control.

    A leftist’s goal is control; a leftist’s means to that end is money and power; and his best friend is his dogma.
