The Literal Insanity of AOC’s Green New Deal

If Bernie Sanders is America’s Hugo Chavez, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is our Pol Pot. Her demented Green New Deal would require totalitarian social engineering on a scale not seen since the Khmer Rouge killed off a quarter of the population of Cambodia. The more we learn about it, the more loudly sane people laugh — unless they have read up on their 20th century history and realize that people like her sometimes end up in power.

Yesterday AOC et al released an overview. It is staggering.

Stalin only had 5-year plans. AOC doubles that with a 10-year plan that eliminates all greenhouse gas emissions. This alone is impossible; merely breathing creates greenhouse gas emissions. But this isn’t really about global warming malarkey. It is about leaving “liberalism” behind and going whole hog for communism.

Per OAC’s website (although it looks like they just now took this down), the Green New Deal explicitly guarantees everyone the following at everyone else’s expense:

• A job with family-sustaining wages, family and medical leave, vacations, and retirement security
• High-quality education, including higher education and trade schools
• High-quality health care
• Clean air and water
• Healthy food
• Safe, affordable, adequate housing
• An economic environment free of monopolies [except for Big Government, which would have an absolute monopoly on everything]
• Economic security to all who are unable or unwilling to work

You read that correctly: unwilling to work. Here we see why the dregs of humanity will actually vote for socialists like Bernie and AOC. The plan is for us to work as slaves to finance their workfree lifestyle as they lay around puffing on legalized dope. Because “social justice.”

AOC’s wish list would come at an incomprehensible cost, which she resolutely refuses to address. Even at a 100% taxation rate, there is no chance we could afford any of it after the economy has been reduced to absolute ruin by a ban on the fossil fuels and nuclear energy that make it go. Presumably, the plan is to just print the money, like they do in other socialist utopias like Zimbabwe and Venezuela.

The Federalist lists the 10 most insane requirements of the Green New Deal plus bonus insanity (click through for annotation):

1. Ban affordable energy.
2. Eliminate nuclear energy.
3. Eliminate 99 percent of cars.
4. Gut and rebuild every building in America.
5. Eliminate air travel.
6. A government-guaranteed job.
7. Free education for life.
8. A salubrious diet.
9. A house.
10. Free money.
11. Bonus insanity: Ban meat.

Even a half-serious attempt to bring this to fruition would mean the collapse of the economy, totalitarianism, and the effective end of property rights. In short, this is a call for the end civilization in America.

That’s okay, people chuckle. Everyone knows that AOC is a screwball and far dumber than most of her fellow bartenders. No one takes this stuff seriously.

No one? From Fox News:

The plan, which calls for a massive package of big-government proposals including health care for all, quickly picked up the backing of major 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls including Sens. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Cory Booker, D-N.J. — who all co-sponsored the resolution.

Other presidential hopefuls Kirsten Gillibrand, Julián Castro, and Beto O’Rourke have expressed their support.

Even a token attempt to implement this agenda would be devastating to the economy. The government is already about $22 trillion in debt and counting quickly. Merely to elect someone who would not react to the Green New Deal with horror would be to move the Overton window so far to the left as to exclude wealth and freedom from our socialist future.
