The Green Police State – A theocracy?

My reading of Ludwig von Mises’ Treatise on Human Action continues:

A system of theocratic government need not be founded on one of the great historical religions of the world. It may be the outcome of metaphysical tenets which reject all traditional churches and denominations and take pride in emphasizing their antitheistic and antimetaphysical character. In our time the most powerful theocratic parties are opposed to Christianity and to all other religions which evolved from Jewish monotheism.

What characterizes them as theocratic is their craving to organize the earthly affairs of mankind according to the contents of a complex of ideas whose validity cannot be demonstrated by reasoning. They pretend that their leaders are blessed by a knowledge inaccessible to the rest of mankind and contrary to the ideas maintained by those to whom the charisma is denied.

The charismatic leaders have been entrusted by a mystical higher power with the office of managing the affairs of erring mankind. They alone are enlightened; all other people are either blind and deaf or malefactors”.

Al Gore as a leader blessed with knowledge of certain and imminent doom…

The ridiculing of all their religions besides their own, and their inept attempts to latch onto “science”…

Their denial of raw data to “denier” scientists, the hijacking of the peer review process,  and the utterly vapid argument, “the science is settled”…
