You remember all that trouble Obama got himself into when he talked of his wish “to spread the wealth around” during the election campaign? It alarmed many Americans because it sounded like overt Socialism. But things have moved on apace since then. Consider this; Listen to Cass Sunstein, Obama’s new regulatory czar and perhaps the most powerful bureaucrat the USA.
“It is even possible that desirable redistribution is more likely to occur through climate change policy than otherwise, or to be accomplished more effectively through climate policy than through direct foreign aid.”
Sunstein ALSO thinks that, “If we care about social welfare, we should approve of a situation in which a wealthy nation is willing to engage in a degree of self-sacrifice when the world benefits more than that nation loses.”
Copenhagen is a power grab by hard left socialists and the media adulation that is accompanying it is repellent.
