All my readers and most other people know that communism failed in the 20th Century. What happens when a movement fails?
The Seventh-day Adventists began with a prediction of the ‘Second Coming’ in 1844 in Michigan. It didn’t happen as many people know. The doctrine was slightly modified and the religion that replaced it began to grow. Today the church has 20 million members scattered over the surface of the earth in every country.
The Jehovah’s Witnesses also had a leader who projected the start of Christ’s Kingdom in 1925. That failure has generated another great global religion with 20 million followers, worldwide.
The third movement began as a prediction in the early 1980’s of the end of the world due to human CO2 behavior by the end of the 21st Century. The movement organized its first global conference in Kyoto in 1997. By that time satellite data had been available for 20 years and showed no harmful effects from CO2. Another predictive failure.
The movement, now called Global Warming Apocalypse has several billion believers in every nation on the planet.
The evidence suggests that nothing can create a great global religious movement as effectively as a disastrous failure.
Communism failed in its two largest nations, in the USSR and China, by 1991 about the time the new Global Warming Apocalypse began its rapid growth.
It is my contention that the failed communism of the 20th Century is the new Global Warming Apocalypse religion of the 21st Century. The strongest proof of my thesis is that Global Warming adherents are all Lefties, people who formerly found communism attractive.
Lefties today are yesterday’s communists. Yes?
