The World Is Taking Crazy Pills... Because It Can

Somebody needs to stop it.

Leftists wouldn't be leftists if they didn't bite off more than they can chew:

Climate activist Naomi Klein has launched a star-studded and sweeping “manifesto for the planet” that calls for an end to fossil fuel dependence and new economic order for Canada.

The “Leap Manifesto” debuted with support from a predictable cast of climate and social justice activists, including David Suzuki, Greenpeace, Oxfam, The Council of Canadians and social justice activist Stephen Lewis. ...

The manifesto itself is an ambitious plan that includes… everything. It calls for, among other things: the recognition of First Nations rights and title; an end to fossil fuel subsidies; collective control of new energy systems instead of private ownership; a non-polluting economy; a national child-care program; immigration status and full protection for all workers; and a debate about a universal basic annual income.

As these people have no viable (read: realistic) alternatives or lack of government resources, I'm going to dismiss their ideas as folly.

Dangerous folly.

No one is going to walk to a job where they are paid far less than what they are worth, heat their homes with twigs or hand their kids over to nutcases like Naomi Klein.

God help us if that should happen.

Sweden has laid out the welcome mat for so-called refugees:

Sweden’s government leaders are running extra trains and handing out free tickets to get more poorly-educated Syrian men into the country and onto the nation’s expanding welfare-rolls.

“We will not force any refugees to get off a train,” said an email to employees at the government-run train company. “If in doubt, let them stay on… In the current circumstances, where many people are in difficulties, it is better if we show our humanitarian side,” said the email, which was sent by communications director Monica Berglund.

The railway service has even added trains to carry the foreign migrants from the Baltic port city of Malmo to the capital city, Stockholm.

Shocked Cat can't warn the Swedes enough.

At least twenty-five percent of so-called refugees flooding into Germany aren't even Syrian refugees at all:

In a press conference Tuesday afternoon, Minister of the Interior of the German state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Lorenz Caffier, confirmed suspicions about the origin of many supposed Syrian refugees. “At least a quarter of those refugees allegedly coming from Syria are not from Syria, but from other Arab or African countries,” said Caffier.

That must puncture the narrative.
