In the Tom Woods Letter, author Tom Woods calls out Democrats for their “bizarre, anti-human, anti-science, pro-impoverishment platform” and their desire to apply that platform globally and to use American taxpayers’ dollars to do it. Woods writes:
The results of the midterms were rather a surprise to many people.
The Democrats ran on a bizarre, anti-human, anti-science, pro-impoverishment platform, in the wake of two years of useless voodoo against COVID. Any sensible country would have beaten them back brutally, such that they would never be heard from again.
That isn’t what happened.
In the old days, progressives claimed to be trying to improve the standard of living of the ordinary person. Everything they advocated would have had the opposite effect, but at least they claimed to be making his life better.
Now they’re not even claiming that.
You will be poorer, they’re telling you. Your electricity bills will be higher. The price of your car will be higher. And according to them, higher prices are in fact a good thing, because they’re supposedly a sign of a strong economy.
At one of Gene Epstein’s Soho Forum debates, someone asked a “climate change” hysteric what his prescriptions would mean for a country like Bangladesh, where the per capita income is between $2000 and $3000 per year. Do they all need to buy electric cars that cost 20 to 30 times what they earn in a year?
Well, yes, came the reply. Perhaps international aid can help.
Yes, I’m sure the international community will fork over $4 trillion to subsidize electric-car purchases in Bangladesh.
Bangladesh simply will not be able to develop, period.
Back to U.S. politics:
Imagine having more than two years of your life taken from you, for what you now have to know was no good reason and which accomplished nothing, and not even caring. Imagine not wanting to repudiate the people who did this to you and your children as vigorously as possible.
That’s evidently half of America.
