Examples of duckspeak abound. "Global warming! Global warming! Quack-Quack- Quack! Global warming! Quack-Quack!" "Constitution outdated! Quack-Quack! Constitution outdated! Constitution outdated! Quack-Quack-Quack!"
Duckspeakers quack out the latest oral flatulence they've been taught to quack even in the face of massive contradictory evidence, such as the fact that winters are starting earlier, lasting later, and getting more severe – or that Article V of the Constitution makes it a living document that is continually being updated and is eternally updatable.
But duckspeakers never think about what they're quacking. In fact, the nature and the purpose of duckspeak is to keep them from thinking. Duckspeak is designed to discourage the would-be thinker by isolating him in a giant echo chamber where everyone is quacking the same thing.
The latest example of duckspeak is "Flag bad! Flag bad! Quack-Quack! Flag bad! Quack-Quack-Quack!" Even South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley and South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham are echoing the Flagbad duckspeak. Of course, there's nothing "bad" about a piece of cloth that symbolizes the independence and individualism that used to be admired and respected in Americans. But duckspeak is not intended to educate. It's intended to obfuscate.
Duckspeak started in earnest in 1960 when David Rockefeller's Club of Rome isolated a rapid recovery in birth rate from a previous drop in birth rate and used that selective statistic to re-ignite the Malthusian myth of overpopulation. The duckspeak at the time was that the human race would starve to death by 1975.
When it became obvious that that wasn't going to happen, a new "threat to life as we know it" was invented – Ozone depletion. Duckspeak followed in lockstep with "We're all going to die of ultraviolet induced skin cancer."
The Ozone depletion myth was followed by such duckspeak fodder as global cooling, ("We're entering a new ice age"), acid rain ("We're killing all the fish"), phosphate pollution ("We're clogging our rivers with algae"),and finally global warming ("the oceans [will] go up maybe two, maybe three, maybe four feet”).
All of this duckspeak dialogue is based on one thing – lies! And it is facilitated by one thing – ignorance. To believe the Ozone depletion duckspeak, you would have to be ignorant of the fact that ionospheric Ozone is manufactured by the sun and that if some of it actually were to be deionized by Freon, the sun would simply re-ionize it.
And you have to be ignorant of the natural warming and cooling cycles of the sun to believe duckspeak about global warming (or, in the 1970s, global cooling).
But why? Why is the federal government deliberately lying to us through duckspeak and other routes? It's what I call hysteriocracy – government by hysteria. As long as they can keep the people distracted with a crisis, they can do all sorts of things that they wouldn't be allowed to do under normal circumstances. It's Rahm Emanuel's famous dictum in operation: "Never let a crisis go to waste. And if you don't have a crisis, invent one!"
furthermore, the invention of crises and incitement of hysteria, followed by government "solving" of the non-existent crisis, cements the myth of government omnipotence in the minds of the electorate.
We think of a horse as a stupid animal, and domestic horses are indeed somewhat stupid. But that's because we have deliberately bred them to be stupid. A horse is a draft animal, and you don't want a draft animal to be thinking for itself. You want it to gee when you say "Gee," and haw when you say "Haw." So we have for centuries been breeding horses to augment their complacent obedience.
Duckspeak is one of the tools used to breed humans to that same level of indifferent stupidity.
