Progressive Professor Demands Death Penalty for Global Warming Skeptics and the Pope
Front Page Magazine ^ | December 25, 2012 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 12/25/2012 6:47:31 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

It’s almost 2013 and that apocalyptic future seems to be getting closer and closer. Sure we have no flying cars, but we do have a creepy dystopian dictatorship sneaking up on us. Except it isn’t sneaking up anymore, it’s jack-booting its way around the halls.

Richard Parncutt is an Austrian professor of Music, which makes him an expert on global warming, who originally hails from Australia, but in true progressive style is ashamed of Australia. According to Dick, he is waiting for reconciliation with the aborigines to really happen “so that I can be proud of where I come from.”

Parncutt also hates Israel and Mormons, and wants a global wealth tax. And even though he is opposed to the death penalty in the case of mass murderers, he’s willing to consider an exception for people he really disagrees with.

Onward Discordia!

In this article I am going to suggest that the death penalty is an appropriate punishment for influential GW deniers. But before coming to this surprising conclusion, please allow me to explain where I am coming from.

I have always been opposed to the death penalty in all cases, and I have always supported the clear and consistent stand of Amnesty International on this issue. The death penalty is barbaric, racist, expensive, and is often applied by mistake. Apparently, it does not even act as a deterrent to would-be murderers. Hopefully, the USA and China will come to their senses soon…

GW deniers fall into a completely different category from Behring Breivik. They are already causing the deaths of hundreds of millions of future people. We could be speaking of billions, but I am making a conservative estimate...

I invite the good professor to go three rounds (or less) with me to settle the matter. I promise I won’t hurt him unduly but I will give him a good idea who he’s insulting.

"We are talking about millions of deaths, so according to the principle I have proposed, the Pope and perhaps some of his closest advisers should be sentenced to death."


And any Catholics who resist. You’re going to eventually have to kill them too. And their continued opposition to birth control as part of a dissenting movement will maintain the Catholic Church and lead to the death of millions in Africa. So you’re going to have to kill them too. Perhaps in some sort of streamlined and efficient way with minimal carbon footprints.

Tax-exempt status is for non-profit organisations, not religions. Religious tolerance is important but that does not translate to financial support. If we were to financially support religions we would support minority religions in order to improve integration and equality. Subsidising a majority religion has the opposite effect.

Petitioning UN, IMF, World Bank, G20
We need a Global Wealth Tax

Petition by
Richard Parncutt
Graz, Austria

National governments cannot pay their debts, a billion people are living in poverty worldwide, and urgent warnings about climate change are being ignored. In all three cases, the main problem is money. But the money is available - in abundance. Economic globalization and technological developments are making the rich megarich. Worldwide, there are now over a thousand US$-billionaires. As concerned citizens across the world, we call on relevant global organizations such as the UN, IMF, World Bank, and G20 to negotiate a global agreement to tax all wealth - including all companies, funds, and wealthy individuals - at a single rate of about 1% per year, in addition to existing non-wealth taxes. Exceptions should be limited to genuine non-profit organizations and individuals whose assets are less than about US$ 1 million.

In this article I am going to suggest that the death penalty is an appropriate punishment for influential GW deniers.

Death penalty just for an opposing philosophy? Wow, if that's not straight from Satan, then nothing evil is from Satan and all good is evil. What if a conservative were to say that the death penalty was appropriate for someone opposing a conservative point of view? I believe an immediate arrest would be made for making terrorist threats.

How in the world are these people allowed to publish statements like this and no arrests are made? All of this is rushing the world toward complete, total and full violence about has fast as we can possibly go.

An open letter to all politicians
from Richard Parncutt

Politicians can promote social responsibility like this:

First admit that within most countries, the gap between rich and poor is widening, e.g. Austria, UK, USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Nigeria, China, India. Between countries, the gap is narrowing - but many countries are stilll outrageously poor and people are dying of hunger and preventable diseases every second of every day. Poverty also leads to migration, insecurity and dictatorship. Poverty is the single main issue! 

Then DO something about it!

Promote tax justice and reduce the rich-poor gap and address the global financial crisis by 
increasing progressive taxes (wealth, transaction, luxury consumption, inheritance, environment)

phasing out  regressive taxes (e.g. consumption taxes on basic needs) 
increasing income/wealth/taxation transparency 
pushing forward international agreements to prevent multinationals and the rich from shifting their capital to low-tax countries

Free enterprise is the foundation of prosperity and democracy. Promote small businesses by minimizing associated costs and bureacracy. Promote free competition by minimizing subsidies, tax deductions and other perks, and combatting monopolies.

Expose the amorality of otherwise respectable centre-right parties that consistently block wealth taxes. Lack of funding is the main cause of the world’s main problems - bankrupt national governments, a billion poor, unchecked global warming. But the money is available in abundance: Globalisation is making the rich steadily richer. At the same time, centre-right parties are distorting the truth about taxation, and they are working together with the rich to spread anti-tax propoganda. As the wealth gap grows, this process is increasingly threatening democracy. Centre-right voters are usually well educated, so they cannot pretend not to know these things.

Combat global poverty and involuntary migration by improving international aid - financed primarily by new wealth, transaction and environment taxes (where else should the money come from?). Explain (especially to far-right voters) that this is the only reliable, long-term solution to the “migration problem”, because it is the only solution that addresses the problem’s main cause, the rising wealth gap. And by the way - the main reason for the rising wealth gap is new economic opportunities due to globalisation, combined with the failure of governments to globalise taxation and force the rich to pay reasonable amounts of it.

The human race is facing existential problems in many areas: poverty, war, resources, pollution, biodiversity and climate. Research will play a key role in solving them - the more so if it is freely available. From a general legal or moral viewpoint, a piece of writing can be owned by its original author/s, but it is problematic to buy or sell it, or to profit from restricting access to it. More generally: to plausibly maintain democracy, we must avoid extreme concentrations of capital by private companies and individuals. Free enterprise is fine and good provided human rights and basic needs are respected. Human rights include freedom from poverty, hunger, and curable disease. Basic needs include clear air, water, food, health, sanitation, mobility and education. Basic needs can only be owned if ownership is public and subject to democratic control. If publicly relevant information is a basic need, free access is a human right.

It gets “better”...

National debt, income inequality, and taxation

First of all we have a contradiction that is plain for anyone to see. National governments are struggling to pay their debts, while at the same time multinational corporations are making gigantic profits. In most countries, the wealth gap (the gap between rich and poor) has been steadily rising for decades (income inequality). Now in 2012, ordinary people in the middle and working classes are being asked to accept “austerity measures”.

This is distortion of the truth (aka bullshit) and it should be identified as such. If money is needed, the people who should pay first are those who have money. Where else is the money going to come from? Clearly, the rich are not being taxed enough. Governments should be taxing wealth more directly, in addition to income, and separately from it. We also urgently need transaction taxes (e.g. Tobin tax) to generate urgently needed taxation income and at the same time curb financial speculation, and we urgently need environmental taxes (e.g. carbon taxes) to combat global warming and other environmental problems. Regarding wealth tax, we need more transparency about the total wealth of individuals. Everyone with any net wealth (or at least those whose wealth exceeds a given threshold) should pay about one percent of that wealth to at least one national government every year.

Taxation and redistribution of wealth are the main problems that we are facing. Of course there are other problems, but these are the main ones, because when they are solved the others will disappear or be easier to solve. Those who put other issues at the top of the list are in denial about the main problem. Those who hide the taxation issue by pretending that other, more complicated, less transparent problems are the primary cause of the crisis, and those who are constantly diverting attention toward those complex issues, are distorting the truth and ultimately preventing a resolution of the problem.

“...Richard Parncutt is an Austrian professor of Music, which makes him an expert on global warming,...”

He’s probably as much an expert on global warming as are most of those who have PhDs in the subject. It appears that advanced statistics and analysis is not in their curriculum - or if it is, they are treated like athletes and given the standard passing grade for caveman ability. I am surprised that any proper department of physics would even admit that these math clowns were trained by them.
