The ACT ON CO2 campaign launches its Bedtime Stories TV advert on 9 October 2009 at 20.45 on ITV1.
Running on television, press, outdoor posters, cinema and online the campaign is designed to raise awareness of climate change, convey the imminence and the need for urgent action.
The British government is using the NLP directed on children in order to persuade their parents to accept the Goreism and the believe that we dangerously influence the global climate through CO2 and that we can do something about it by saving energy. They intend to persuade children to label their parents as irresponsible and bad, if they don't adhere to the will of the UK government.
It is not the first time in resent history, we have seen governments using children as a means to achieve their political goals. My parents told me about how the ruling party in Germany used teenagers, Hitlerjugend, to change the mind of their parents. Like today's UK, they back then misused the unconditional love of the parents to force an agenda.
By misusing the children in this way, you reverse the normal system in which the parents provide guiding examples, moral support and wisdom for the children, and where the parents view is guided by independent critical diagnostics of the society they live in. In this UK Hitlerjugend style, the guiding role is taken away from the parents and transferred to the government and their propaganda departments.
This is the most powerful propaganda method imaginable, but also a very inhumane form. It is inhumane for several reasons. Unless you, as a parent, are extremely well informed, you have no way of promoting your own interest to the child, as you will find it difficult to protect your child from the massive, intrusive media called TV and Internet.
This one-sided immoral propaganda through children was in principle banned by the High Court in UK.
The judge ruled that you are not supposed to provide disputed one-sided information, without also providing adequate information about the other side of the coin.
The issue of the one-sidedness, is what makes this children-propaganda so immoral. It's like having the ruling party in the government making gigantic propaganda with the taxpayer's money, directed towards the children, in order to force the parents to vote for them by the next general election.
I feel privileged that my parents had a mind of their own and it was I, who tried to hammer, my often misguided ideas, into their heads. It was the right way around, because my parents had lifelong experience in how to tell fact from fiction, a skill I had to learn through my many mistakes during childhood.
After the war Germany introduced laws prohibiting Nazi like organisations. Contemporary court cases reveal that the government still adhere to these rules. However, what is the difference between Hitlerjugend and the way the children are used in climate propaganda in today's UK?
Update October 25th 2009 By ICECAP.
Please take a minute to complain to the UK Advertising Standards Authority here. Over 400 have complained so far. See in this story how the government under Gordon Brown refused to pull it as it regards the UK public as ignorant for not accepting their dire projections and prescriptions. A British member of the European Parliament, Roger Helmer, has condemned the UK government’s new climate-change commercial as “one-sided, biased and partisan”. Helmer has
written to the Advertising Standards Authority asking them to review the government’s commercial to see if it meets their criteria for honesty and fairness. British voters take note.
Two new videos have appeared that parody the “Act On CO2” commercial scaring children into believing that they are killing the planet. This one is my favorite. Spread it far and wide.
