Yesterday the European Commission unveiled a plan to ban automobiles from all major European cities over the next 40 years. In its draconian masterplan to cut CO2 emissions by 60 per cent, the commission also proposes to end short flights from Britain to southern Europe to ensure that more than half of all trips over 186 miles are by rail.

The commission would use Brussels directives and new fuel taxes to force people to park their cars and use alternative transportation.

“That means no more conventionally fuelled cars in our city centres. Action will follow, legislation, real action to change behaviour.”—Siim Kallas, EU transport commission

Kallas said that the plan would reduce the number of cars in use by half over the next 20 years, before all cars are banned in 2050. He called the plan a “win-win” because it would “break the transport system’s dependence on oil without sacrificing its efficiency and compromising mobility.”

But not all Europeans think Kallas’ grandiose greening of Europe in a jolly good idea.

“If he [Kallas] wants to bring everywhere to a grinding halt and to plunge us into a new dark age, he is on the right track. … The man is off his rocker. I suggest that he … finds himself a space in the local mental asylum.”—Hugh Bladon, Association of British Drivers spokesman

Ayn Rand said that the real guilt lies with those “who accept collectivism by moral default” and bring the world to “bloody ruins and concentration camps,” believing that their wailing, “But I didn’t mean this!” will somehow absolve them of moral responsibility.

National Education Association (NEA) representative Diane Schneider told those attending this year’s UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSM) that oral sex, masturbation, and orgasms need to be included in education curriculums.

The NEA spokeswoman said that “inclusive” sex education is “the only way to combat heterosexism and gender conformity.” According to Schneider, sex education will remain an oxymoron as long as it is abstinence-based and voluntary. 

[W]e must make … [heterosexism and gender conformity] issues a part of every middle and high-school student’s agenda.”— Diane Schneider

Schneider argued that “gender identity expression and sexual orientation are a spectrum,” and that those opposed to homosexuality “are stuck in a binary box that religion and family create.”

A Belgium panelist at the event promoted his country’s “gender in the blender” program as a model for teachers who want to discuss gender and transgender issues in the classroom.

Sexualization of youth was also advocated at CSW. The UN Population Fund (UNFPA) presented UNESCO guidelines on sex education and the IPPF Framework for Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) curriculums.

Both curriculums promote masturbation and advocate exposing young children to graphic sexual images. UNFPA panelists said that young children should be taught the socially radical curriculums because too many girls in developing countries leave school before they are sixteen.

To make people comfortable with their lack of freedom, the ruling elite in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World uses consumerism, sports, drugs, and promiscuous sex to keep the masses mindlessly happy and receptive to government propaganda. In much the same way, progressives are using promiscuous sex and psychotropic drugs in public education to keep students distracted and sedated.

O brave new world,

That has such people in’t!”
