Let’s unpack this slowly. A stated goal of the U.N Framework Convention on Climate Change is to replace capitalism with something else. The quotes below are accurate. Conservatives howl this means the U.N. favors socialism. If only. Socialists should not start doing the happy dance quite yet, if at all.
The real goal is more like a technological elite monitoring us 24/7 (elections will of course no longer be needed), mandating what we can and cannot do. “Oh, I’m sorry Mr. Morris, but our analysis of your social media accounts by Google shows you to be hostile to our new Green Operatives. Some retraining will be needed. Your banking accounts have temporarily been deactivated until retraining is completed.” Yeah, I know, how paranoid is that, seeing conspiracies based on what highly-placed people actually say. I’m crazy like that. And only the most cynical would opine the technological elite would exploit their positions for money and power. Oh heaven forfend, we’re all squeaky green and renewable here. No time for that old school corruption. Right.
It looks like they want to replace capitalism, not with socialism, but with something like feudalism with a green exterior. We should be deeply suspicious of massive changes like this being mandated with no input from member nations or public discussions within countries about it.
The U.N.’s climate chief, Christiana Figueres, says openly that the aim of the talks is “to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the industrial revolution.” That outlook will be welcome among attendees like the delegation from Bolivia. That country’s official material submitted for the talks proposes a “lasting solution” for climate change: “We must destroy capitalism.”
What Bolivia wants as the replacement is probably not at all what the U.N. wants.
“This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history, since the Industrial Revolution.”
