Despite its relatively poor showing in elections the Green Party in Britain is highly influential, compared to UKIP, which in the last general election gained significantly more electoral support. The reason why the Green Party has more influence than UKIP is that it is a politically correct party that sings from the same hymn sheet as those who currently wield political power. UKIP, on the other hand, is regarded as right wing and is thus ignored, if not despised, by those now holding the levers of power.
Although care for the environment must be a high priority it should be based on facts and evidence. Measures to protect the environment should not be at the expense of destroying the economy and people’s livelihoods, or in needlessly increasing state control over the lives of citizens, or based on scare tactics and exaggeration. Many people in the green movement are motivated by a concern for the environment, but for others with a leftist fanaticism it provides a platform, and a front, to achieve their political ends. Entryism of this kind has been accurately identified as 'Green Marxism'.
The greatest political scam of our age is the global warming hoax. On the political spectrum the further people are to the left the more they promote the hoax, whereas the further they are to the right the more they try to expose this delusion for what it is. The reason for this is that the climate change agenda has been hijacked by those using it as a front for achieving Marxism through the back door. With its massive state interventionism it provides an ideal mechanism for political apparatchiks to control the lives of ordinary people, who are thus reduced to pliant clients of the state. Political correctness is another way of achieving this objective, this time through controlling people’s thoughts and behaviour through the perversion of language.
Green campaigners are seen by many as well intentioned, harmless do-gooders, whereas in reality some can be opportunist, malignant anarchists. Time, once more, for the lemmings to wake up before it is too late.
