I refer you to this, a blog on the climate anxiety that is hitting young people:
It is becoming clear that the two chapters in my book warning of the Covid, Climate Linkage had merit. The total 4 Chapters below in the Book Set up the entire scenario that is playing out in front of your eyes.
Chapter 10: COVID-19/Climate-Change Alliance Weaponization
Chapter 11: The False Equivalency Between Climate Change & COVID-19
Chapter 12: Using Climate Weaponization Against Freedom
Chapter 13: Political Weaponization
The evolution of this was the alliance between Covid and climate emergency, the false equivalency is established, then climate is weaponized to destroy freedoms by way of politicization.
But the field is ripe for the picking. Think of this. Over 40% of millennials do not believe in or do not care about God.
Where does one go in times of weakness? If you are someone focused on our heavenly father, you reach for him. In fact you begin to view your trials as ways to actually find out where true strength comes from. You think, well maybe I am not a victim, but instead I am being trained to be stronger thru adversity. I even believe sometimes that the way people act in claiming they are victims is the by-product of an innate desire to be something bigger than what they are at that time. I believe all are created equal, but not the same, and one person’s talent is different from anothers. But envy greed deceit, lack of focused purpose destroys that desire to reach and be bigger. So you create problems to fill that void. If you play to an audience of sympathetic people, then you naturally look heroic in fighting these overwhelming odds standing against you. Only unlike what we saw in the past which served as lessons for this nation, most of the problems are being put upon by people wishing to create them. So no belief in God, there has to be something to overcome to make you better. So create a problem, then try to solve it, and become the hero doing so. It’s a modern day version of setting a fire than being the one to put it out.
So if no God, then its on you. But wait a minute. If you are a victim, if you have all the odds against you, if you are told constantly that this is going to kill you or someone next to you, or future generations will not survive (rich isn’t it, given the abortion question in this country.. a feigned worry about future generations) how can you as a “put upon, downtrodden, woe is me person possibly overcome that?” So who do you turn to. No God, you can not rely on self because you are too weak to face the world, then you have to turn to something. Bingo. Right out of Mencken.
“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary”.
(Mencken was a Democrat. How times have changed).
Another irony is that the people most victimized are generally from a generation of wealth and dare I say privilege. But the younger people still hustling are out there. When I was a kid I did anything I could for a dollar. Sold Christmas cards, chocolates, fished golf balls out of a pond and sold them for a dime. Anything. A buddy of mine that wrestled at PSU started picking tomatoes on the farms of Jersey when he was 8. I always had a pay check in some way shape and form from when I was a busboy at the age of 14 ( my first check was for $9.42, but I did get tips) I see it on the farms of the Amish out here with their children. I see it when I pull up to a light in Baltimore and young people are hustling in what a lot of people think is a scam, washing someone’s car window. I see it as opposite. But that is how overcoming is done. And I make darn sure I let someone know that and after I pay them, tell them to be in church Sunday and tithe it. But there is still a segment out there, and to an older guy, they are lights that say there is hope. But the problem is they are being overwhelmed by. A) No spiritual compass. 2) A constant drumbeat of divisiveness and fear. 3). An increasing presence of exactly what Marx wanted, the state to control the masses.
Enter Covid and Climate.
I am not a conspiracy person. But one has to admit that scaring people who had very little chance of succumbing to Covid worked. (less than succumbing to flu). In the 2018-2019 season about 3000 people under the age of 30 died from the flu. As of June 9,2021 the entire pandemic has taken the lives of a bit over 2800 people under 30. A longer period of time than one flu season, and less people dead. Yet that generation willingly gave in to whatever they were told. No raising questions as to why they were forced to stop their lives. Unquestioned obedience to authority, which was given a free pass from questioning.
They simply rolled over and gave in due to the fear that was whipped up. Again, we are talking people under 30. Oddly enough resistance increased to such things in age groups that were more at risk. Probably because people understand there is no free ride and no one said life would be easy. ( though it’s a heck of a lot easier than it used to be).
The anxiety is the result of a 2 fold attack by the left. One the constant drumbeat of fear whipped up and 2, younger people today are likely to have anxiety much more than previous generations. I shared my beliefs as to the why in a previous paragraph.
So Covid is weakening and now the pivot to climate is ramping up. It has been evolving for quite some time. And with no Trump to blame the evils of the world on, a real focus on climate and weather can now come front and center. But it’s a form of abuse to indoctrinate younger people so much, that they feel helpless and have anxiety because of climate change. The ultimate irony: Covid was a very real threat to parts of our population, the older part and people not healthy. BUT LIFE, LARGELY DUE TO FOSSIL FUELS HAS NEVER BEEN BETTER ON PLANET EARTH. IT HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER FOR YOUNG PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY. WHICH MAY BE PART OF THE PROBLEM. The toughness needed, forged from trials that become lessons, is not there. The spirituality needed is gone. As I said above, It is no coincidence that anxiety over climate would be up among millennial:
So again, the perfect set up for Marxism, which seeks to destroy God and replace it with the state. But unlike Marx, where Russia faced a fertile ground for revolution, or Germany with Hitler or Italy with Mussolini (conditions were actually horrible in all 3 places when these people came to power), the “horror” of today in the U.S had to be manufactured. The idea we are an illegitimate nation and we stole everything and by doing so kept everyone down is to create the sense that not only you are put upon and downtrodden, but you are destroying the rest of the world too. And Capitalism and Climate are at the core of it. So climate is NOT JUST ONE OF MANY OF THE ATTACKS BY THE AGENDA DRIVEN ZEALOTS, IT’S ONE OF THE MAIN THRUSTS! If the Constitution and Declaration of Independence were written by the “squad” would their words be of any less value?
Do they know Ho Chi Minh read the words of our declaration of Independence and turned to communism when the US did not help in his effort to be freed from the French?
His words in December, 1945 when declaring independence:
“All people are created equal; they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights; among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”
This immortal statement was made in the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America in 1776. In a broader sense, this means: All the peoples on the earth are equal from birth, all the peoples have a right to live, to be happy and free.
The Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen of the French Revolution made in 1791 also states: All men are born free and with equal rights, and must always remain free and have equal rights.
Those are undeniable truths.
So how is that foundation of our nation, which was even recited by Ho, somehow turns less valid. When you trash God, country and family, the inevitable result are generations that are leading to what you see now.
This links to the big key, be it thru Covid, Climate, or fill in your own idea, the destruction of the melting pot where all the colors bleed into one, into the exact opposite. That is driven by the same people that have instilled fear into the generation that is supposed to represent the future of this country. That is a form of abuse, scaring people so they live in fear. So who does a nation increasingly without God turn to? The people that seek to control them, saying they will lead to safety.
Again, Mencken’s quote rings true.
This is a line from John Mellencamp in his song Minutes to Memories:
“Suck it up and tough it out, be the best you can.”
I also believe he said in a different song. “You better stand for something or you’re gonna fall for anything”.
This was good advice to previous generations.
Such advice would just lead to more anxiety today.
