Global Warming Shamanism <— P.J. O’Rourke


Global Warming Shaman — Fear Equals Funding

“Oh no, the Night Wolf is eating the Moon Virgin. Give me some silver and I’ll make him spit her out.”

The bullying of fellow citizens by means of dreads and frights has been going on since paleolithic times. Greenpeace fund-raisers on the subject of global warming are not much different than tribal wizards on the subject of lunar eclipses.

“Oh no, the Night Wolf is eating the Moon Virgin.
Give me some silver and I’ll make him spit her out.”

Majority Rule <- P.J. O'Rourke


1sausage_pepperoni_med_cczoomImagine if all of life were determined by majority rule.

  • Every meal would be a pizza.
  • Every pair of pants, even those in a Brooks Brothers suit, would be stone-washed denim.
  • Celebrity diet and exercise books would be the only thing on the shelves at the library.
  • And – since women are a majority of the population- we’d all be married to Mel Gibson.

P.J.O’Rourke, Parliament of Whores (1991)
