From the Copenhagen “climate” conference, Hugo Chavez was applauded for bad-mouthing the only moral and peaceful economic system that mankind has ever known. From this article:
Then President Chavez brought the house down.
When he said the process in Copenhagen was “not democratic, it is not inclusive, but isn’t that the reality of our world, the world is really and imperial dictatorship…down with imperial dictatorships” he got a rousing round of applause.
When he said there was a “silent and terrible ghost in the room” and that ghost was called capitalism, the applause was deafening.
But then he wound up to his grand conclusion – 20 minutes after his 5 minute speaking time was supposed to have ended and after quoting everyone from Karl Marx to Jesus Christ - “our revolution seeks to help all people…socialism, the other ghost that is probably wandering around this room, that’s the way to save the planet, capitalism is the road to hell....let’s fight against capitalism and make it obey us.” He won a standing ovation.
What more proof do some people need to see that these world leaders, these self-proclaimed "imperialist dictators" are not operating in your best interest?! Isn't it obvious that the freer a society and the smaller the government, the more prosperous *everyone* in that society is? Just look at America's poor compared to Chavez's poor. Do you not see that we are headed in the same direction as Chavez's poor?
The article ends with:
And the Ethiopian President Meles Zenawi – who made a sensible and considered and detailed proposal about how to get financing to help climate change adaptation and mitigation in poor countries? He was far less enthusiastically received.
That’s because no world leaders care about his people. It’s obvious they don’t even care about their own.
This conference is not about climate change or the poor. It's about anyone that has money and how governments can steal more of it from us. It’s about money, power and control. The real greedy, fat cats ain't on Wall Street people, they're in Washington D.C.
