Rousseau staggers on

Posted by Richard on UTC 2015-10-11 14:15.

There has been a flurry of shocked reports in the last few days about a secret meeting of lawyers held to work out what to do with global warming intransigents.

The executive summary: suppress every public utterance and pursue them legally for... er, whatever comes to mind.

Although the full list of participants at this meeting is secret, at least for the moment, this blog knows the name of one key participant: pauvre Jean-Jacques Rousseau (decd.). Whenever the common good and the general will are required to cope with troublemakers (a.k.a democrats) he is the most reliable helper.
