Globowarmthinkists are what is left when all the better puppies have retired to tend their own private gardens. It is the absence of the good. It is what remains when all the really bright people have abandoned the public commons and surrendered it to the sociopaths and psychopaths to demolish. Globowarmthinkery is what rushes in to fill the vacuum left behind when nobody decent is interested in a career in science.
We don't live in a meritocracy. Evolution does not favor the smartest or most virtuous. Natural selection works against quality. Progressivism is a faith that makes druidism look positively rational.
Homo Sapiens - a breed of man designed to exterminate another race of men, which in turn itself is designed to be a victim to another race of men, all of whom collectively achieve a sum total progress of zero when measured over time. This planet is designed to see to it that nobody gets out of here alive. This is what the Epic of Gilgamesh and the Curse of Humbaba were all about - demonstrating a mythological cycle that points to the futility of seeking a way out. Enkidu and his race were the biggest scapegoats in the history of this planet and an example was made of them to demoralize the whole human race. I feel the Epic of Gilgamesh complements the New Testament when it is recognized for what it is, a book of mythology that preceded the Gospel. It shows mankind tried and failed to challenge the ruling classes many times before Christ succeeded where many mere humans failed. These ruling classes have always been the children of Lucifer and like their master they have always described themselves as "gods," seeking to usurp the divine.
Nevertheless, despite the hand wringing of the Sumerian priests, the whole of Mesopotamia was filled with statues of Enkidu riding on the back of the Bull of Heaven, his hands lifted up in joy towards the stars. The priests reminded the peasants they were to derive no courage from Enkidu's story but the common people ignored them. Something in humans still remains that wants to break out of these cycles of ascent and decline.
The real question is not why the majority of people are like that. You would expect by now that every good thing would have been hammered out of them. The real enigma is why any human being remains who yearns for something other than this drab madness. I am happy to say it took me fifty years to figure out why this is. It's because those special people still retain some of the genes of Enkidu, the rodeo clown who challenged the "gods." The rest of them are simply Globowarmthinkists.
