OPINION: BY JEFFREY A. FRIEDBERG
Does anybody remember Mikhail Gorbachev? If you were born after 1990, maybe you don’t. And you’d be a Millennial—all, like, 29, and stuff.
Briefly, here’s who Mikhail Gorbachev is:
Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev[a] (born 2 March 1931) is a Russian and formerly Soviet politician. The eighth and last leader of the Soviet Union, he was General Secretary of its governing Communist Party from 1985 until 1991.
He was the country’s head of state from 1988 until 1991, serving as Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet from 1988 to 1989, Chairman of the Supreme Soviet from 1989 to 1990, and President of the Soviet Union from 1990 to 1991. Ideologically, he…adhered to Marxism-Leninism….
Following the Boris Yeltsin coup and collapse of the Communist Soviet Union around 1991, Gorbachev found himself out of power and living the low life.
Soooo…in 1993–in my opinion—he moved Communism to a new home: the “environmentalist movement.”
The “movement” was all but un heard of in 1993. Yet, now it seems to be a new world religion combining religionist enforcement and world communism. It strives for One World, under One Communist Rule, and provides its own Heaven, and Hell.
To go to Global Warming Heaven, all you have to do is Believe.
To go to (what do they call it now?) Climate Change Hell, all you have to do is not Believe.
Because if you do not Believe—the (liberal) Environmentalist Inquisition will find you, ruin your reputation, and get you fired or maybe even jailed.
So, you see, communism never “fell.” It just moved to a new home. And now—if Democrats have their way—it may run the entire Planet. (Earth.)
Do you find that Coincidental?
Do you Believe?
You’d better—if the Democrats (communists) ever take power.
Green Cross International (GCI) is a Geneva-based non-governmental organisation founded by President Mikhail Gorbachev in 1993. The idea, to apply the medical emergency response model of the Red Cross to ecological threats that transcend national boundaries, was first mooted by President Gorbachev during an address to the Global Forum on Environment and Development for Survival in 1990. At the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in June 1992, delegates gave whole-hearted support to the creation of such an organisation.
In the last 17 years, GCI has developed its network across 31 countries. It has plans to expand this network. GCI seeks to promote a just, sustainable and secure future for all. Guiding its work are fundamental human values that transcend cultural differences: respect, care, solidarity, integrity, equality and non-violence.
