This is from James Delingpole's article on the great AGW scaremongering and it applies right here..
Coming soon - indeed it has already started - is the mother of all backlashes against the AGW alarmism industry. It will happen on lines predicted over a century ago by Gustave Le Bon in his seminal 1895 work, The Crowd.
Le Bon (whose analysis of crowd mentality influenced Freud, Hitler and Mussolini) argued that the secret of demagoguery was to repeat an idea over and over again in order to create a "contagion" which would infect the popular mind and hold the culture in its grip. This is what, until very recently, happened with the global warming religion.
But this contagion can only keep going, Le Bon argues, so long as those spreading it possess "prestige" in the eyes of the mob. Once that "prestige" is lost, the crowd turns brutally against those seers and experts and leaders in whom it once had such faith. Suddenly it sees them for the liars and cheats and manipulators they really are.All we need to do is exchange the AGW for Feminism, as we have the exact same situation that feminists have been working on for all those years. That methodology was there for all to see and fortunately a few noticed it for what it really was originally and where it was all heading. The need to spread that information became too prominent to subdue. As usual, there are always others who have to clean up the mess it leaves and the stench that permeates from it, hoping that a lesson may have been learnt. But it will have to be replaced with something a lot fairer and less destructive and in the long run make peoples lives better rather than worse..
