    Trains. Socialists LOVE trains. It's like the perfect central-planning fantasy where you can pick up human cargo at a point of your choosing and deliver it to a point of your choosing without all that mess of individual decision-making. The ultimate goal is to push the entire public into what they call "autonomous" or "self-driving" electric vehicles. It's like a central planner's wet dream because it's like trains, but without the limitations of tracks. You won't "own" a car - you'll request one to pick you up and take you where you want to go. You won't pay for fuel, maintenance, or insurance directly... that'll be wrapped up in the price of the mobility "service". And if you happen to cross the line in your political beliefs or activities and wind up on the wrong side of "the law", you will be picked up and routed to the nearest detention facility.

    Here's the thing, it's not 100% "government" fatwas. In fact, more importantly, these are fatwas from the institutional investment community. The Bernstein Strategic Decisions Conference is where CEO's get up in front of investors to tell them how they're bending the knee and then beg them for money. That's right - global conglomerates in banking and finance. They've been captured by this so-called "green" movement. World governments (including ours) have given guidance to the banking industry to stop providing loans to anything related to fossil fuels. But this guidance wasn't needed for the BIG institutions - only for the small ones who weren't following the plans. The big institutions are leading this. (*note that they had to rescind some of that guidance recently because it drove up the price of energy too fast) In a capital intensive industry like energy, if you don't maintain access to capital, you are dead. And these central planners know that. Unfortunately, a change in government will do little to stop this momentum. We really need to peel away the socialists from these global financial institutions. They control the entire game right now.

    Just finished reading Alex's new book and I highly recommend it. (his previous work, The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels, is also a good read, but this one is more clear.) https://www.amazon.com/Fossil-Future-Flourishing-Requires-Gas-Not My review: The central premise of this book is that our "knowledge system" surrounding fossil fuels and its environmental impacts suffers from an "anti-impact" framework instead of a "human flourishing" framework. In general, what he's getting at is that most environmentalists and the general zeitgeist of our time are not really opposed to fossil fuels as much as they are opposed to anything that may impact the environment - positively or negatively. Which means they are really opposed to human development. Because human development necessarily involves making our environment a better place to live. Because of this, he refers to this framework as "anti-human", which I think is a proper way to frame the discussion. As a contrast, he lays out a "human flourishing" framework to view the same science based on not only negative side effects of energy sources, but the immense positive benefits of these sources. Low cost energy in the "empowered world" has led to a 98% reduction in climate-related deaths over the last 100 years. Besides that, the time we have saved from fossil-fueled machine power has benefited us in a myriad of scientific advancements that would have otherwise been impossible. Air is cleaner, water is cleaner, less of our time is used in finding food, and our standard of living is higher than kings just a few hundred years ago. Meanwhile, those in the "unempowered world" are still suffering from a lack of low-cost energy. He acknowledges the side-effects of burning fossil fuels and using nuclear energy, but demonstrates that even in those cases, these energy sources provide a great deal of "climate mastery" that allows us to overcome those side-effects for the benefit of human flourishing.

    While I agree with you in theory, you only have to look at the disaster of the last 2 years to realize that a divided government is the best we can hope for in the short term.

    Kentucky Republican Rep. Thomas Massie says 'Trump is at fault' for deadly riot at Capitol“People did mislead the folks that came here, and Trump was among them,” Massie said. “He insinuated that states wanted their electors thrown out, which was not true. I kept a spreadsheet of every document every state produced, and in no case did a majority of any legislature even put their name on the letter.” https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2021/01/09/rep-thomas-massie-says-trump-is-at-fault-for-deadly-riot/6611721002/

    And while I do believe the BIble requires civil authorities to punish homosexuality, and with death as the maximum penalty, I don't think it would be legitimate even for the government to just round up people in a gay bar.

  8. Sorry, but you have failed. That verse does not contain the words "Grace is irresistible." You can interpret it that way, but that's not what the verse says. You had to admit there was "relational language" in the Bible. Yet you have stuck to your guns that there isn't a verse that says "Have a relationship with Jesus." Likewise there is no verse that says "Grace is irresistible." If you were honest you would simply admit that. But you aren't honest.

In the twilight of the Cold War, the United States spent millions of dollars to supply Afghan schoolchildren with textbooks filled with violent images and militant Islamic teachings, part of covert attempts to spur resistance to the Soviet occupation.
