During his diatribe entitled “How green is the internet?” at last week’s Google summit, global warming shakedown artist Al Gore summed up his opinion of American Democracy in one word: “Pitiful.”
This, from a very wealthy guy who made hundreds of millions of dollars investing in “green” companies selling “carbon offsets” for example – based in large part on the hysteria that Gore and other climate change (they no longer call it global warming – so as to be able to blame all weather phenomenon on human beings) fanatics have made careers out of foisting on an uninformed public.
“American democracy has been hacked; it no longer operates in the public interest. I’m sorry to tell you that if you didn’t already know it. But just as – uh - I mean seriously, it’s pitiful. Not a single meaningful reform can be passed in the U.S. today unless they first get permission from the special interests that are most affected by it.
As an aside, just as the Internet culture and the digital revolution can be used to solve the climate crisis, it can be used to heal the operations of democracy and capitalism – which both need to be made sustainable.”
“As an aside,” Al, the “operations” of democracy and capitalism have been “sustainable” in America for nearly 250 years. If history serves me right, since long before you invented the Internet.
