I enjoy watching TV shows chronicling natural disasters. I’m fascinated by them as apparently a lot of us are. These programs are very popular. Hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis, volcanoes and earthquakes.
Yes, the results of these disasters can be tragic and the suffering caused by them can be unimaginable, but these phenomena are still fascinating to a lot of us.
A recent example of these programs was rebroadcast just the other day on the History Channel. It was entitled Megaquake 10.0. The premise of the show was to examine and compare past powerful earthquakes and the destruction they cause, to a magnitude 10.0 Megaquake, with as much as 30 times more devastating force then most recent major earthquakes.
During one segment, a seismologist was discussing the devastation recent earthquakes had caused. He claimed that loss of life and property were potentially much greater today, not because of more powerful earthquakes, but due to increases in urban population – population centers where there are simply many more people per square mile than in the past.
Always thinking politically – it hit me – like a Megaquake. Yes, I know, I’m a total geek.
It’s liberal policies that will unintentionally, but likely kill millions of people. How do I get from Megaquake 10.0 to liberal political policy? That’s easy.
It’s the restrictions on drilling, increased gas taxes, high-speed rail projects and the federal government’s ownership of most of our land. It’s community planning, withholding of federal tax dollars, carbon taxes, bus lanes, bicycle lanes, etc.
When you begin to look at the policies, not as individual entities, but in concert with one another, you’ll see what these regional planners/community planners, wizards of smart are attempting to do.
