Aasof on Global Government


Writing The Thunberg Effect prompted next week’s post on Global Government, something that I fear Greta Thunberg and her fanatical supporters would advocate to save the world. Being a fan of sic-fi films, which are mostly dystopian, like Greta Thunberg I hold a pessimistic view on the future of humankind. However, I’m sure that I hold different views on global government than Thunberg.

The reason: Global warming is not about science, but about politics — that is, about expanding the power of elites using the coercive instruments of government to control the lives of people everywhere.  Just as the governing class embraces ineffective Keynesian stimulus spending to justify expansion of government, they now extol AGW as the basis for increasing their power to rule over the rest of us. The Goal Is Power: The Global Warming Conspiracy

Perhaps most people missed the inference regarding global governance (or perhaps I misinterpreted it). The bicentennial man’s second claim to humanity took place before a kind and considerate group of politicians, unlike the first  which I interpreted as requiring him to face death.

Andrew (The Bicentennial Man) was the robot of a very middle-class family in this future AI world. Perhaps not only leading to its success as  a film but also its appeal to an aspiring proletariate, for whom the realities of social progress depends on the economic growth of the State in which they live.

I now wonder what Sol made of the world he lived in the film Soylent Green. I doubt very much that the proletariat could afford Sol’s euthanasia and wondered why they ran out of Soylent Green with so many people. I doubt that that politicians and politically connected people ate Soylent Green, yet a further example of a society that depends on a class based system for its survival.

My pessimistic view of humanity’s future for the proletariate under a global government, comes from Metropolis:
