NY Times Opinion: Capitalism Is A Threat To The World And Must Be Replaced

The NY Times published an opinion piece yesterday titled “The Climate Crisis? It’s Capitalism, Stupid” which argues that capitalism is the real threat to the environment, a threat which must be eradicated if we are to survive. There’s nothing subtle about this piece. The author, who is a professor at Arizona State University, says capitalism is the problem and environmentalism is the movement that can supersede it.

NYT Columnist Calls Capitalism The ‘Real Culprit Of The Climate Crisis’

A New York Times opinion article recycles the old argument that capitalism is the root cause of global warming, and that turning to socialism would give humanity a better chance of survival.

Capitalism is often invoked as a global warming boogeyman that will inevitably lead to another mass extinction if more restrictive policies aren’t put in place. However, this NYT column goes on to claim that a “democratic socialist society” is the answer.

After that I identified as a Democrat but I wasn’t really happy with their policies either,” said Katbi, now 25.

Ethics Professor On Charlie Gard: ‘Children Do Not Belong To Their Parents’

Authoritarianism, the repercussions of socialized medicine, and the culture of death are all fully on display in the tragic case of little Charlie.

But Ian Kennedy, a professor of health, law, and ethics at University College London, writing at The Guardian has a different take, one consistent with the pure leftist ideology: infant Charlie Gard “does not belong to his parents,” he belongs to Big Brother, and he should be sentenced to death.

College students support socialism even though they can’t explain what it is

Campus Reform published a video yesterday showing college students in Washington, D.C. responding to two simple questions. The first question was: Do you think socialism is good or bad? As you’ll see, there was enthusiastic agreement from the students that socialism was a good idea, once which is about “helping people” and spreading the wealth. Some of the students even seem defensive, noting that socialism, inexplicably, has a bad reputation.
