There is a type, a breed, a sort of person who exists in Britain, their parents were most probably quite (even very) religious but religion wasn't for them, too many drugs to try and sex! - people to f£*8 and money to be made in the sixties and seventies, "dahling, I've just no time for religion!"
These people, confess to be Christians but never profess this 'faith' in a church. Years of hedonism and excess has left a big gap in their lives and as they turned towards their thirties, having been brought up in a school system and thus, steeped in Socialist contradictions and dogmas, say to themselves (sometimes subconsciously), "what is missing?"
A revelation doth occur, the light shineth down and God calls them!
Now you might think, this is a funny-peculiar God, he calls them but they don't start filling the pews at their local church?
Yeah! but this is a new religion, going to church is still for mugs! The new religion manifested itself in so many new forms, a concern for prisoners in Northern Ireland and South America, anti war, ban the bomb, the list is long. But, of course the greatest of these new faux religions, was worship of mother Gaia.
The tree hugger generation was 'born', these 'types' signed on the dotted line, to FOE, WWF, Amnesty and many others, "save the earth!", they collectively cried.
This 'Jesus' sandal wearing generation see no hypocrisy in having a mercedes outside their pad, whilst they read their morning grauniad, eating tofu and sitting on their futons. AGW, was manna from heaven! Now those b88888ds (capitalists) were really going to suffer!
So without the realisation that they were part of the problem, embarked on a campaign to not only save the world but to trash the scientific method at the same time.
This generation of people have had children (God help us) and these children are even more nihilistic and Godless than their parents and they have had more crap crammed into their heads at school (thanks to the re-education programmes of the EU -than even their parents had).
This new tree hugger generation had the 'benefit' of a "post normal" education. Many of them (like their parents) had a burning ambition to not only save the world but save the people as well. So they became climatologists or studied environmental science (because they weren't good enough for the pure science faculties) and or Politicians - they studied, PPE at Orrxford and of course! They were all socialistas to a man and girlie.
Post normal science and thinking, teaches: that if the cause is right then you are right (even if the cause is crap and you're 100% wrong) - how socialist is that?
Thus, we have reports, written by FOE like the above, simple innit? It ain't logical, it ain't reasonable, it's post normal, it's Socialism, it's Bu88sh9t.
