MAD LEADERS, MAD POLICIES

Those whom God would destroy, He first makes mad.
Do you ever get the feeling that the leaders of the Western world are idiots? No one can blame you for thinking so.
But what if they were worse than numbskulls? What if the bosses and the experts, in addition to being blockheads, were actually stark, staring mad—and by God’s will?
We have the press in America shocked and disappointed that the Navy SEAL team that bagged Bin Laden didn’t include any women, and Navy bureaucrats intimating that someday, for sure, they’ll get around to such barbaric silliness.
In British Columbia the teachers’ union is telling its members not to call kids “boys and girls” anymore because “gender is a spectrum” and “you can be whatever you want to be.” They’ve put it in a teachers’ handbook.
But the winner in this week’s Wacko Derby is Germany. The information comes from an actual news report. This deserves to be looked at in some detail.
A pseudo pod of the German government called the Scientific Advisory Council on Global Environmental Change has advised that the government will have to “limit democracy” in the near future. A nodding acquaintance with history will reveal that Germany has done that before, with unhappy results. But this time it’s to save the planet! No more of that “master race” stuff—this time they’re gonna take away people’s freedom for their own good.
