Another German “Will Soon Unveil A Master Plan For A Transformation Of Society”

We’ve seen that kind of thinking before. Authoritarianism.

Forget democracy, human freedom and free markets. These concepts, which have made today’s human prosperity and long lifespans a reality for humans, wherever and whenever they have been given the chance to work, are upsetting a small but very elitist group of individuals who view these concepts as a threat to their world view.

The English edition of Der Spiegel has a recent interview with Prof Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. In this interview Schellnhuber announced that he would unveil his “Master Plan” for transforming society – one no doubt that suits his world view. In Schellhuber’s view, human society needs to be scaled back and managed by an elite group of “wise men” who know what is best for the rest.

Schellnhuber’s contempt for today’s organisation of western soctety is illustrated by his statements. For example Der Spiegel stumps Schellnhuber with a simple question:  “Why is it that your messages haven’t been all that well received until now?” Schellnhuber responds:

I’m neither a psychologist nor a sociologist. But my life experiences have shown that the love of convenience and ignorance are man’s biggest character flaws. It’s a potentially deadly mixture.”

Oh the contempt. So we are all too comfortable and ignorant. It’s time for “wiser men” to think for the rest of us.  Your message, Mr Schellnhuber, has not been well received because it is anti-democratic and authoritarian. Your kind of thinking is a threat to the principles of Germany’s Constitution and so belongs under government observation.

Schellnhuber indeed has a very poor understanding of history. History teaches us a different lesson – that it is not the combination of love for convenience and ignorance that is man’s greatest flaw, rather it is the combination of towering arrogance and ignorance that is man’s greatest flaw. That is the real threat to society. Schellnhuber also denies climate history and concocts his own fraudulent version to warrant an authoritative intervention.

The belief that the planet needs to be dictated by a higher authority is what makes people like Schellnhuber so dangerous to democracy. Their impatience and frustration with democracy, and their claim to have superior knowledge, remind us of others who have led us down very dark paths back in the 20th century.

These people are convinced they are all-knowing. Der Spiegel asks:Do you feel that the government’s abrupt change of course in relation to its energy policy is adequate?” Schellnhuber replies:

No. It can only be the beginning of a deep-seated shift. The German Advisory Council on Global Change, which I chair, will soon unveil a master plan for a transformation of society. Precisely because of Fukushima, we believe that a new basis of our coexistence is needed.”

A master plan for transforming society drafted by a climate scientist, a person who admits having no background in sociology. This plan no doubt will be asserted by authority, and not democracy. Schellnhuber and others have indicated many times that democracy is flawed and is a nuisance. It’s getting in the way of solving the “world’s crises” (like zero temperature growth over the last 15 years).

Well, here is a little history lesson for the all-knowing Herr Schellnhuber and his bunch, who are frustrated with democratic principles and individual freedom, on where this type of contempt can take us if left unchecked:

This is where people were turned into numbers. Into this pond were flushed the ashes of 4 million people. And that was not done by gas. It was done by arrogance. It was done by dogma. It was done by ignorance. When people believe they have absolute knowledge with no test in reality, this is how they behave. This is what men do when they aspire to the knowledge of gods…Every judgement in science stands on the edge of error, and is personal.”

    Good thing this piece of trash lives in Germany. Here in the US, we have guns. Come over and try to make us you pond scum Nazi. Too bad, Europe has not learned their lessons from the past, they have no guns, so sad, so sad.

    1. Rhoda Ramirez

      Phillip – don’t crow too loudly. Our own fearless leader is known to legislate by Executive Order and he hasn’t shown too much respect for judicial rulings. The SCOTUS is not, and has not been, unduley influenced by the Constitution any more. I would also remind y’all that Fearless Leader is also very charismatic and surrounded by academics who have little real-world experience.

    Don’t forget WHO is pushing to make people ignorant and WHO is pushing to give us convenience. The very same people that want to extinguish us. Now that they have milked us dry to the point where their generations will survive into perpetuity, we will be tossed.

    God is the I am and is the only One with the true answers for man’s problems. We have detached ourselves from our Creator and now believe through man’s scientific approach we can find our answers. Absurd, yet this is the same lie that Satan told Eve in the Garden. You can became a god with a small g. He didn’t tell her the rest of the story of his plan like this nutty German Professor Schellenhuber. That is many of the humans would have to be eliminated to arrive at his final destination. Satan is the original murderer, thief, and liar to gain his own ends; the original sociopath and his plan is to wipe out the entire human population in order to win his useless battle against his own creator. What a pity.

    You people crack me up. Professor Hans Schellnhuber is Jewish.

    1. DirkH

      Unlikely. Huber is a typical Bavarian surname or part of a surname; the Bavarian form of Hufner, meaning a farmer who owns a Hufe, a certain amount of land. I find no evidence that Schellnhuber is of Jewish origin, and have never heard of a German Jew called …-huber…

      If you can prove me wrong, name your source.

    I studied Bronosky & “The Ascent of Man” in college 35 yrs ago. I found him very inspiring. He talks about human spirit and it’s ability to create, invent, persevere & transend past any obstacle before it. My hope is that we continue to find the grace, strength & courage to push our spirits and our humanity to the heights of our potential and possiblities.
    Remember this- that any one person or group who claim to have a master plan for all humanity only wants to be the master of all inhumanity.
