Salt of the Earth

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

Ever wondered who believes the Anthropogenic Global Warming propaganda? I do not think that spruikers like Flannery, Koroly or Garnaut believe it, nor do the politicians, socialists, fascists and other world government admirers, nor the charlatans masquerading as scientists in the former institutions of higher learning and the least of all the captains of the finance and industry. But somebody, somewhere presumably must believe the dogma; somebody with no understanding of basic science, in other words somebody to whom the following statement is addressed:

An ancient form of natural salt, Himalayan Salt Dreams Crystal Salt is hand-mined in the foothills of the Himalayas. Ranging in colour from crystal-clear white, to dusty pinks and rich reds, the salt is free from pollutants. Sourced sustainably, the fairtrade salt is slightly milder than common salt.

No, it is not a joke, as far as I know. It may be a private joke of the merchants, who sell the salt. It did appear in one of those taxpayer subsidised throwaway publications printed on faux recycled paper for the people to whom an appearance is the substance because they can’t discern the difference.

I could dissect and demolish that statement, but so could any sixth-grader, at least in my time. The Australian of the Year 2007 is probably buying the salt. Or more likely selling it to Labor voters. No, wrong, he wouldn’t. Selling hot air is easier.

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

    Surely you would not expect the Green/Labor voters to think? NaCl is beyond their comprehension.

    No, at least not logically. But they vote, propagandise and smear the opponents.

    “Just like a communist is a person who is ready to sacrifice your life for his ideals, a global warming alarmist is a person who is ready to sacrifice your wealth for his delusions.” Lubos Motl – 13-01-12 http://motls.blogspot.com/2012/01/james-annan-lost-his-bet-against.html#more

    Now we have the frightening combination of the two in the Federal parliament.

  3. In competition to the Himalayan Red Salt. I have produced my own Authentic Aussie Blue mountain Salt. The salt containing trace amounts of CuSO4, is milder than regular salt and can also be used for fungicide.

    Sounds good, but is it organic? I know it is recyclable, urea be dammed. And what about some FeSO4 to make it even more attractive to us greenies?
