Throughout my time in the public school system, I was constantly reminded of the Catholic Church’s responsibility for the dark ages. The most repeated example being their treatment of Galileo and his discoveries, which have since been proven indisputable. My liberal instructors would usually use this example to support their claim that religion was a suppressor of science and a controller of minds. However the ideology subscribed to by my teachers has been responsible for the exact same transgressions, and on subjects arguably more important than the Solar System or Terminal Velocity.
The Climate-gate scandal has finally proven the extent of suppression used by global warming advocates. Email data reveals the most reputable proponents of climate change doctored data, destroyed documents and lied about findings to support their theory. All while intimidating, ridiculing and shunning their opponents. This theory is also the catalyst for a cap and trade bill that will cost our economy millions of jobs and our GDP a cumulative $9.4 trillion. Therefore, it is fair to say supporters of this theory are attempting to suppress more than just the scientific method.
Through the perversion and/or disregard of the theories of economics, the left has suppressed growth of knowledge in and understanding of business across the World. In a situation that is strikingly similar to the recession of the early 80's, the left has chosen to ignore the solutions proven by Ronald Reagan. Our leadership has instead chosen to pursue policies similar to Roosevelt’s in the 1930's and the more recently failed economy of Japan. The suppression of the lesson our nation learned just 25 years ago has already caused over 10% unemployment and could possibly lead to a second great depression.
Easily accessible statistics clearly show that fewer people die of curable diseases in the United States than anywhere else in the World. The top five American hospitals conduct more clinical trials than all the hospitals in any other single developed country. However, the left only refers to our healthcare system as unfair and evil. Harry Reid went so far as to compare opponents of healthcare reform to opponents of abolition and women’s suffrage.
It is absurd to refer to a system where fewer people die as less fair than another. It is ridiculous to claim that a system that performs more trials to cure illnesses and improve care than any other is evil. The left’s healthcare agenda will not just give more control to the government. It will suppress the system that is the premier driver of medical advances and improvement of the human condition.
The Catholic Church has been embarrassed by history as Galileo’s claims were eventually found to be correct. In contrast, the left’s claims can already be proven incorrect by a brief study of history and/or facts. Anyone who analyzes the economic situation of the 1980's, the mortality rates for curable illnesses or the sources of the World’s CO2 can easily refute leftist claims. For that reason, and that their suppression affects the livelihoods and health of the entire human race, the left is far more evil than the Church they constantly condemn.
