Rapture in Blue

Published: September 18, 2014, Author: JayTaber

Witnessing the radical blue rants, escalating in anticipation of this weekend’s revival in Manhattan, one is reminded of charismatic church gatherings that in 1999 preceded the millenium celebrations. Lots of hysteria, little reason.

Using the three strikes analogy, so popular in the US, Naomi Klein — the charismatic leader seemingly destined to soon rival Oprah — struck out with her climate week plan to flood Manhattan with a People’s Climate March. As with her two previous strikes — the KXL hoax, and the divestment diversion — the Charms of Naomi only benefit Wall Street, not democracy or the environment. Klein’s new economy campaign, so seductive to A Culture of Imbeciles, likewise, will in time prove to be nothing but bubbles–or as Klein put it in her vapid new book, an “effervescent moment.”

Our only hope is informational public health. The delusions of grandeur in the Klein cult house of cards will eventually collapse. At that point, the present hysteria might look tame by comparison.
