In today’s ‘Post’ Peter Foster identifies the soft fascism underlying the Earth Hour idea:
The cause, masterminded by the World Wildlife Fund, WWF, is allegedly to raise awareness of climate change. But what needs raising is not so much awareness as knowledge. .... WWF has no interest in discussing or debating the issue. According to them, we should "stop talking and start acting." Check your brains at the door.I’m on board, Peter. To celebrate I’ll be turning on ALL my lights and cranking up the furnace.
If you love civilization, freedom and the use of reason, keep on all the lights you need on Saturday. Take Back the Night.
Update: Lorrie Goldstein makes some good points vis a vis the new Ontario budget. [via Blue Like You]
