Break Their Will!

Last Updated on February 9, 2021 by John Galt

Here’s what unelected bureaucrats in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts say:

“60% of our emissions that need to be reduced come from you, the person up the street, the senior on a fixed income, right? There is no bad guy left. At least in Massachusetts to point the finger at or turn the screws on and break their will so they stop emitting. That’s you. We have to break your will.”

And it’s coming soon to a country near you:

Can Ismay and his team of merry climate cops accomplish that mission? Breaking the will of people who live in Massachusetts to drive them to use less energy? Of course, they can. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has already said a mileage-based tax could be on the table. And Commerce Secretary nominee Gina Raimondo said the government might need to levy taxes on those making far less than the $400,000 a year Joe Biden promised to fund infrastructure projects. Imposing costs that deter use is one method.
