The chapter in Samantha Power’s recent book “The Education of an Idealist” (William Collins, 2019) on the impressive response to the 2015 Ebola outbreak by the Obama administration – with so many lessons not taken to tackle the present Covid crisis under a maniacs regime….. Power finishes her writing with the following lines: “Looking back, I now see all that the scoreboard could not capture: The relief of a father who has been reunited with his son, newly free of a deadly disease. The look on a government minister’s face as he traverses a rainbow crosswalk. The insistence of diplomats Read More

has triggered a storm of consternation and condemnation from the Green Establishment – which is telling. While the critics are right in pointing out that the film’s footage is old and partly even outdated they fail to address it’s overarching message: the New Green Deal is based on a fatal alliance and, worse, dependency on Old Capital and thus about to perpetuate the propagation of unlimited – but fatal – growth paradigms…….
