Happy Lenin’s Birthday, i.e. Earth Day

Happy Lenin's Birthday, i.e. Earth DayI know what you’re thinking, “As usual Munchausen, you’ve gone too far! The fact that Earth Day and Vladimir Lenin’s birthday are on the same day is only a coincidence. The two have no relationship one to another.”

Would you be just as willing to say that there is no connection between Communism and the environmental movement?

Even though the United States leads the world in environmental protection, the world clamors for draconian penalties on the US while giving free passes to China, India, and polluting third world countries. Of course that’s only fair you say, the US can afford to give its wealth to countries that really need it. “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.” Such a warm and cuddly statement from Karl Marx.

That brings to mind some of Lenin’s most popular quotes:

A lie told often enough becomes truth.

One man with a gun can control 100 without one.

The goal of socialism is communism.

Give us the child for 8 years and it will be a Bolshevik forever.

It is true that liberty is precious – so precious that it must be rationed.  Vladimir Lenin

I’m guessing you didn’t see the coverage below of the global warming conference in Copenhagen. Watch the video and then you can tell me that there is no connection between Communism and the environmental movement.
