T.G.Masaryk :-

Revoluce je sázka do loterie. Nevěřím však v náhodu a v zázraky. Jsem rozhodný determinista. Ale nejsem fatalista. Cítím svou spoluodpovědnost a povinnost ke spolupráci. Revolucionář je rousseauovský divoch, který nedovede pracovat a leká se proto rostoucí společenské složitosti. Revolucionář odporuje vývoji a pokroku, odporuje pravé osvětě. Chce žít divošsky, jednoduše. Chce nemyslet, nepracovat, ale chce se rozčilovat. Revolucionář je utopista.

 Otázka sociální, 1898

[Jako kdyby popisoval zelené revolucionáře…]

About Paul Jacko

Jacko was born in Czechoslovakia not long before the communist putsch in February 1948. He studied industrial chemistry there and left in 1969 for Australia, where he became a lawyer and established his own practice. He has now retired and beside hunting, fishing, camping, prospecting and playing golf he amuses himself by writing.

    Zdá se, že Masaryk tomu rozuměl mnohem líp, než tzv filosofové dnešní. Jako kdyby to vše předvídal. Nebo nic nového pod sluncem?

    Dear Mr Radim,your strange comment may result from your ignorance about the word “skeptic”.A “climate skeptic” is someone who realizes that the problems posed by the changing climate are essentially zero, regardless of their origin, so if someone pays CZK 650 million for the research of these problems, from any perspective, he is simply throwing CZK 650 million into the toilet – in the best case.I can’t believe you really believe that this has nothing to do with the “skeptic vs alarmist” issue. There will clearly be 150 people who can only be adopted to this corrupt team if they agree that there is a problem of global warming, and after they get their money, they will become vocal advocates of the idea that there is a problem of global warming. You know, CZK 650 million is a lot of money to buy someone.Your claim that this has nothing to do with the skeptic-alarmist divide will only make sense once you show me that something like 1/2 of the participants of the project openly realize that there is nothing such as a climate change “problem”.Best wishesLubos
