What happened to Patrick Moore?

Communists are notorious for fiddling with the history to make it fit the present. One particularly hilarious example is the doctoring of old photos to “disappear” the people who fell out of favour.

First a simple “spot the difference” exercise I am sure you will breeze through:


On the left is the original version of the photo, which required a correction after the guy standing next to Stalin was executed. He was simply edited out of the photo as if he had never existed. This illustrates the way a totalitarian system works – the past can be changed as required to engineer a desirable future. This strange mindset is best described in the memorable quote from the book “1984” by George Orwell, which still sends the chills down my spine:

Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.

The idea of changing the past has recently been enacted in North Korea after Kim Jong Un had his close collaborator Jang Song Thaek executed. What followed was a bizarre spectacle of purging the archives of the  North Korean news agency of any references to Jang Song Thaek. His photos and any items mentioning him were simply deleted. In Orwellian terms he became a “non-person” – someone who is deemed to have never existed.

Less publicised in the media was the recent attempt to fiddle with the past by a Western outfit pushing the modern version of communism – Greenpeace. Their organisation was set up in 1970 by five urban rebels, as evidenced in this screenshot taken in 2002:


However, if you went to the Greenpeace website today you would be presented with a different version of the historic events:


As you can read above the photo the Greenpeace has now been started by only four people, not five (it is also quite telling that two of them sport Fidel Castro beards). A Greenpeace “non-person”, dropped from the frame, is Patrick Moore. What was his crime, you may ask? Well, he became disillusioned with the Greenpeace-style environmental activism and denounced it. After Wiki:

In 2005, Moore criticized what he saw as scare tactics and disinformation employed by some within the environmental movement, saying that the environmental movement “abandoned science and logic in favor of emotion and sensationalism”. Moore contends that for the environmental movement “most of the really serious problems have been dealt with”, seeking now to “invent doom and gloom scenarios”. He suggests they romanticise peasant life as part of an anti-industrial campaign to prevent development in less-developed countries, which he describes as “anti-human”.

So, like the guy in the Stalin photo at the top of the post, Moore was “disappeared” from the official Greenpeace history and relegated to non-existence. In their zeal to pursue those who break the ranks environmentalists are similar to another totalitarian ideology, Islam. While people born as non-believers will be subjugated and allowed to live as dhimmis (lower-class citizens), apostates are punished by death. As they teach is Totalitarianism 101 dissent from within is even more dangerous than getting challenged by the outsiders. At present Greenpeace do not advocate culling their opponents but check out the following quotes from a prominent figure within the movement, Paul Watson:

It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.

I got the impression that instead of going out to shoot birds, I should go out and shoot the kids who shoot birds.

There’s nothing wrong with being a terrorist, as long as you win. Then you write the history.

or the blog posting by an insider Gene Hasmi:

Let’s talk about what that mass civil disobedience is going to look like. If you’re one of those who have spent their lives undermining progressive climate legislation, bankrolling junk science, fuelling spurious debates around false solutions, and cattle-prodding democratically-elected governments into submission, then hear this: We know who you are. We know where you live. We know where you work. And we be many, but you be few.

Getting a bit uneasy about the environmental movement? You should be.
