Fictional Carbon Market Plunging To True Valuation, Which is Nothing At All

These people in the previous post are getting so desperate they are pushing for Soviet-style psychiatry to silence their opponents. Their fictitious market is worth nothing at all and investors can't help but figure it out. Should all investors in the world also be subjected to electroshock?

What amuses me about this is how modern sophisticates make fun of the madness of past generations and their crazed delusions, always assuming the current era is composed of soberminded pragmatists. Nothing could be farther from the truth. I see your tarantella or tulipomania and I raise you global warming. This planet has not seen crazy of this magnitude since the Salem Witch Trials or the Spanish Inquisition. Globalwarmthinkery is bug-eyed, frothing-at-the-mouth socially transmitted rabid insanity.

Tex, what exactly was so crazy about the spanish inquisition? Forget the fantasies and black legends about it, it was an extreme effort to rid spain of crypto-jews and fifth columnists. It was extreme, but it worked to some extent. It didn't came to be because of superstition and ignorance like the salem witch trials. It was *frightenly* pragmatical.

I never praised it in my life and never will(I see it as a a sad necessity of a past era), but I thought you would. You know, with your frequent talks of "all night firing squads" for traitors and your anguish at seeing your former country become an exploitation colony ruled by an alien minority that has no empathy towards the native population. I thought you would sympathize with the spaniards from the post-reconquista period. Spaniards wanted Spain to be both spanish and catholic after they regained their lands... they gave jews, gypsies and muslins two options: convert and love our country or leave. The so called "victims" of the inquisition were mostly people who abused that kindness and assumed they could keep Spain as an exploitation colony(only this time from within shadows). When I read up on it I was actually frightened by how powerful and highly placed some of the persecuted fake catholic jews were and how the inquisition had to abuse power to get to them. No wonder Torquemada went insane. He was something of a 15th century born Jack Bauer.

Anyone educated enough and with access to information knows that the inquisition was no more violent or unjust than any court or tribunal of pre-enlightenment europe. Torture was commonplace everywehere, including protestant Britain, were catholics were persecuted even more brutally by an even more ruthless "inquisition"(i.e: read up on the fate Guy Fawkes narrowly avoided). They say history is written by the winners, and it is truth. The inquisition was far from rosey, but it isn't even 1/100th of what fiction and biased historical interpretation paints it to be.
