…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
The world media, well trained seals, performed another fraud on benighted public. This time it was the plastic bag, killing the planet. Not just any bags, but only those used in the developed world. Next it could be plastic straws. Idiocy of globalists is limitless. http://quadrant.org.au/opinion/doomed-planet/2018/10/bag-snatchers/The medial push happened at the same time all over first world, though the only evidence of any problems comes from Asia and Africa.
Only currently tertiary educated snowflakes believe the socialists propaganda, and, while professing being au fait with computers and internet, it is simply because are young and therefore ignorant of anything else in real world.
Our politicians jumped on the bandwagon, as it would cost them nothing in real terms, would enhance their “environmental” image and could increase contributions from big business, retailers in particular. In Australia, Coles / Woolworths duopoly is so blatant that one wonders about the size donations to Australian Securities Commission; it cannot be so incompetent just on its own. Not wishing to have my legs broken, I state I have no evidence of anything.
Our pretend, Clayton competitors are saving planet profitably by forcing citizens to buy their own plastic bag and compensating plastic manufacturers by smaller and smaller packaging, relying on misguided and ambivalent public. https://wattsupwiththat.com/2019/01/16/dont-ban-plastic-bags/
The real point of this nonsense is that socialists are training us for the new world, their world. In the memorable words of one of their leaders, comrade Conroy (while ALP was in power):
“I have unfettered legal power… If I say to you, everyone in this room, if you want to bid next week in our spectrum auction you’d better wear red underpants on your head, I’ve got some news for you. You’ll be wearing them on your head.”
Perhaps he thought he is addressing all Australians, though by silently accepting plastic bags nonsense, we are almost there. For example, Australians are mostly quiet about obscene cost of gas and electricity. We failed IQ test and showed next step to global socialism would be even easier. We have nobody to blame but ourselves.
