Observations From the Back Row

By Rich Kozlovich

We have the tendency to think that our views are the views shared by everyone else, so when we read some accounts that should normally outrage our sense of justice we have the tendency to pass these outrages off and think; “Come on; who would do such things?” I truly think that is the problem with a society that doesn’t teach history….and what we are doing in our schools isn’t history. At one time you could at least get the correct understanding in the universities ---at one time--- but that time isn’t now!

I started this as an anti-green blog; and I intend that it should be a “green issues only” blog. I started it because I had become 'outraged' when I realized that everything the greenies were spouting about pesticides was a lie, and I wanted to set the record straight for our industry. I wanted to make sure there was at least one place where all pest controllers could go to gather information to defend us against these scurrilous attacks against pesticides and pesticide users.

It soon became obvious that it was impossible to maintain a “green issues only” blog because green isn’t about the environment, no matter what they claim. It is about world domination and green was the tip of the spear point for that movement! That made me realize that in order to properly address the green issues I would have to take on all issues promoted by the leftists of this world. I really hate that because there is no end to it, and I have a real job that really interferes with my life. Whoda thunk it?

What really convinced me that I had to expand my coverage into “all things” was the fact that so many in the pesticide manufacturing, distribution and applications industries had started drinking the Kool-Aid. This was not the industry that I started in thirty years ago. It had become infested with pseudo-greenies from the universities that demonstrated all the symptoms of the Stockholm Syndrome. They were now finding common ground with enemies whose goal was our destruction and the destruction of humanity. The last part was the defining realization for me.

At any rate I needed some sort of emotional, psychological and logical foundation to justify all of the work this was going to take. I did struggle with that for a nano-second and then I had another one of those SHAZAM moments. I do so love SHAZAM moments!

Did you ever have a SHAZAM moment? All of a sudden you get this flash of insight -- SHAZAM -- and all of a sudden we understand something that we have been working on mentally for some time, maybe even years. As I grow older I find that this happens much more often than in years gone by. How does that happen? I can tell you that age makes up a part of it, because clearly the brain’s abilities change as we grow older. I read James A. Michener’s book “The Source” when I was 19 and enjoyed it. I read it again when I was 30 and understood it.

The brain is designed to find patterns. The ability to draw correct conclusions from incomplete data is a work of the brain that is a wonderful gift, but there still has to be a foundation for it. Everyone has this ability in varying degrees, but are we capable of training our minds to do it better? I believe so! I believe that this is done by absorbing a great deal of information and thinking a great deal about a great many small things. All of this is being filed and correlated by the brain without any conscious effort on our part. Eventually we will have a brain full of seemingly disparate and useless information that will come together into some cohesive form. A bit here, a bit there and all of a sudden –SHAZAM-- you have the whole story with the informational gaps filled in automatically.

I realized that Paradigms and Demographics isn’t an anti-green blog and it isn’t an anti-leftist blog. Paradigms and Demographics is a pro-humanity blog! In order to be pro-humanity you must be against environmentalism and leftism; both being irrational and misanthropic secular religions.

Everything that I post will attempt to dig deeper into the issues than what is shown on the news or appears in the newspapers….both of which are lies of omission. Because everything is “the basics”! What is "the basics"? It is the embrace of traditional wisdom versus the latest philosophical flavor of the day; commonly known as conventional wisdom!

Traditional wisdom appeals to the intellect and conventional wisdom appeals to the emotions. Traditional wisdom has faced the test of time, and that time is called history. History leaves a trail that can be followed and used to develop factual logical foundations that will naturally create the intellectual responses to the emotional speculative ravings of the left. Conventional wisdom often leaves dystopia behind.

My hope is to clarify …………. everything!

Lord Monckton to pursue fraud charges against Climategate scientists:
Will present to police the case for 'numerous specific instances of scientific or economic fraud' Visit Site - 'I have begun drafting a memorandum for prosecuting authorities...to establish...the existence of numerous specific instances of scientific or economic fraud in relation to the official 'global warming' storyline...they will act, for that is what the law requires them to do'………In the United Kingdom, the Fraud Act 2006 has given fraud a very detailed, statutory definition, which may be summarized as the obtaining of a temporary or permanent gain (whether by keeping what one has or by getting what one does not have) or the infliction upon another of a temporary or permanent loss (whether by not getting what one might get or by parting with what one has), the gain or loss being in money or other real or personal property (including things in action or other intangible property), with the intent either of obtaining a gain for the offender or for another or of causing loss to another or of exposing another to a risk of loss, whether by dishonestly making an untrue or misleading express or implied representation that the offender knows is or may be untrue or misleading; or by dishonestly failing to disclose to another person information which the offender is under a legal duty to disclose; or by dishonestly (by act or omission) abusing a position in which he is expected to safeguard, or not to act against, the financial interest of another person.

In some jurisdictions, “serious fraud” is defined as a fraud that either involves offenders in a position of public trust or very substantial sums of money or both. The connected frauds revealed in the Climategate emails involve both.

My Take - The people who perpetrated this fraud; the people who supported this fraud; and the people who have profited from this fraud have a lot more to answer for than mere fraud. They are guilty of crimes against humanity! Here are two articles from earlier in the year

Armed Troops Burn Down Homes, Kill Children To Evict Ugandans In Name Of Global Warming
Neo-colonial land grabs carried out on behalf of World Bank-backed British company - Armed troops acting on behalf of a British carbon trading company backed by the World Bank burned houses to the ground and killed children to evict Ugandans from their homes in the name of seizing land to protect against “global warming,” a shocking illustration of how the climate change con is a barbarian form of neo-colonialism.

Kenya's Samburu people 'violently evicted' after US charities buy land
Around 2,000 Samburu families have stayed squatting on edge of disputed territory, says NGO Survival International - Members of the Samburu people in Kenya have been abused, beaten and raped by police after the land they lived on for two decades was sold to two US-based…. charities, the Nature Conservancyand the African Wildlife Foundation.….. At least three people are said to have died during the row, including a child who was eaten….The groups subsequently gifted the land to Kenya for a national park, to be called Laikipia National Park….the pastoralist Samburu had reported constant harassment from police with women allegedly raped, animals seized and an elder shot as recently as last month. "There has been an ongoing, constant level of fear, intimidation and violence towards the community, which has been devastating," …."The situation has been really bad for a long time," he said. "[The Samburu] have nothing. Things like bedding and utensils were burned."…"In one incident, a Samburu elder was shot dead by paramilitaries," the group said in its letter to the UN committee on the elimination of racial discrimination, dated 7 December….."The displaced community has nothing but their livestock, thousands of which were impounded – with no reason given – on 25 November 2011. This is an urgent and serious violation of the rights of this community, which has been left squatting beside its land with no amenities," Survival's letter said.

IPCC Scientist Responsible For Bogus Antarctica Warming Study Suppresses His Critics' Research
IPCC 'lead author' Josefino Comiso suppresses peer-reviewed research that completely discredited his previous "Antarctica is warming" study. The IPCC is continuing its tradition of fraudulent climate science for the 2013 climate report by utilizing Climategate-style scientists that excel in global warming fabrication and suppressing research that challenges the blatant fabrication.

The wind turbine syndrome has become pandemic
Yesterday, the European Platform Against Windfarms (EPAW) and the North American Platform against Windpower (NA-PAW) served notice to the government of Denmark. They warned of the consequences of their health-threatening manipulations of measurements of sounds and infrasounds emitted by wind turbines. The government of Australia was also warned about the health hazards associated with their windfarm policy. More governments will be served notice in the coming weeks, as well as the wind industry. We reproduce below the letter that was sent to the Danish government.

Ministers won't back cross-ban Christians: Ex-archbishop condemns 'illiberal' assault on faith
The [British] Government was slammed last night for refusing to support a group of Christians fighting for their rights in the European courts. Four individuals who have been disciplined at work or lost their jobs after refusing to remove crosses or to conform to gay rights laws are attempting to overturn the decisions of British courts and tribunal.  They had hoped for support from Ministers after a former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey, appealed to Prime Minister David Cameron on their behalf.  But the Government told the European Court of Human Rights that it backed the British judges and does not accept that the Christians have suffered discrimination.

Muslim Cleric Allegedly Bans Women From Touching Bananas & Cucumbers…Because They’re Too Sexual
An Islamic cleric in Europe has reportedly ruled women should be forbidden from touching — or even being near — bananas and cucumbers because their oblong shapes can make women think of sex……The report comes just days after Saudi Arabian academics claimed there would be no more virgins if women in the country were allowed to drive.

Soft sentencing makes Victoria's law an ass
EVEN a convicted drug dealer thinks our justice system is too soft.....Victorian Supreme Court Justice Lex Lasry ordered the sentence be served concurrently with the 13-year sentence Johnson is already serving for armed robbery. In other words, you can subtract 13 years from 32 years, which amounts to a sort of discount for bad behaviour. It is just another perplexing anomaly from our courts......judges are out of touch and too soft on violent crime. This indicates a crisis of public confidence in our judiciary.

Take, for example, a recent case in the NSW District Court in which Justice Leonie Flannery acquitted a terror suspect who shot a police officer while being arrested. The man, who was under ASIO surveillance, was carrying two loaded guns, had acquired chemicals in preparation for a terrorist act, and had possession of jihadi extremist material and 11 mobile phones he had purchased on eBay. But Judge Flannery claimed an environment of anti-Muslim feeling, which engendered in the Muslim community a high sense of paranoia, had made the man panic when police came to arrest him near a western Sydney mosque in 2005. "He was concerned for his safety, and (in) the climate of anti-Muslim feeling in the community at the time, he believed that he might be harmed by the police."

She concluded the suspect had not intended to shoot the policeman and therefore found him not guilty.
