You had an interview just after 3 pm Thursday 14/8 with that arch - antediluvian socialist Dick Smith giving his spiel on his favourite proletarian theme; population growth.My person was clearly going to have a ‘go’ at DS and the amazing Melange of acolytes of Dick.All elderly like your writer but manifest twirps
You were in earlier days a respected financial reporter. As such you should never have vouchsafed all the arrant nonsence from Dick and his appendages.
Your programme was a Malthusian mess, a demographic disaster, filled with environmentalist alarmism, replete with Hawksian silly old buggers.
LOTS OF THEM. NON STOP.
Why one old codger had the gall to declare that rationalist contrarian views were promoting .... guilty of a ponzi scheme!
I guess I understand enough about demograhics to appreciate that, that old twirp ( hey Seidner you are 66 years old!) should know – and by now should have been told that he is a moron!! Come to think of it, Tom, how many know and accept that they are not all that bright? I hold his friends to an ethereal standard.But YOU, Tom? How is it possible that you were so intensely determined to be everyone’s friend that you became wilfully blind: see my recent essay on another subject on my bloglate July. See link here.http://socialistdystopia.blogspot.com.au/2014/07/a-modern-trichotomy-stupidity-willful.html
However he surely the old fellow had enough ‘marbles’ in kinder.......yet sadly todayhe understands not that his comments were stupid. An incorrigible fool of the meta - socialist type: simply he has come across information yet not understood it.
I mean there was no rational appendant / caller till well after 4 pm to profer a barely correct view; how did you get so many of dickian supporters to phone your programme?
YET YOUR PANEL OPERATOR LEFT ME HANGING FOR ALMOST AN HOUR...THIS WAY REFUSING TO PUT ME TO AIR ...KNOWING I WAS GOING TO ATTACK HIS DICKNESS SMITH!!
THEN THE DEAR LADY FAILED TO PHONE ME BACK AFTER AGREEING IT WAS NOT FAIR THE WAY I WAS TREATED!! Ie she treated me.
And you, Tom vigorously agreed with all these imbeciles.Indeed you have often been shown up as agreeing with everyone.. especially whoever happens to be your current interlocutor! Great for ratings because few people listen in critical analysis.LO! I recall you refused to allow criticism of Danny boy Andrew .....his new nomenclature.And Latham remains a protected species as well.I CLARIFY: EACH TIME YOU LEFT ME DANGLING LIKE A PARTICIPLE YOU THE PEDANT MAY HAVE SAID RE CORRECT SPELLING.Sadly clear thinking is of greater import than anything else.So I continue.
First...why not take a lesson about how China is feeding herself and there are no yellow hordes invading our foodstores?
- Second the world food production continues to soar exponentially!!
- Third ...why not contemplate the cheaper cost if there was no urban sprawl...
This is the way local councils think these days. You did not know? Such a shame...basivc really.
You kept asking peoplehow pleased they would be if enough people procreated productively, often enough to ensure a population of 100 million within 100 years!?????
As if anyting they said now ...did now ..or tomorrow or next year...oh I give up. Do you not see that before 50 or more years passed 'they' will surely invent a way which will enable even silly people to understand that there are billions .. nay trillions of variables in demographics. ALL MAKING YOUR OPENING QUESTION TO THE TWIRPS RISIBLE AN INEPT.
In the utopia of 2114, surely no one will fail to understand these variables are beyond anyone with the vaguest imagination and intellect.
- Why not get that mega twit Paul Erlich and raise that defunct, demised discredited Malthus as guests on your show to discuss Erlich's current discreditum.... climate lunacy?? Why even a stopped watch can be right twice in 24 hrs!
- Why not get the global warming fanatics to project to my 100th birthday food production via their usual extravagant extrapolated - style?
- But the worst were a couple of kindergarten failures who seriously suggested that those who would be part of any new population growth would be takers not givers. This wss a real 'lulu'
- Their frustrated kinder teacher could have told them that no such characteristics can be hypothecacated basis even a deranged aged mind which yearns for the halcyon days whan life was simply miserable and pathetically keeps getting better.
- I suppose we can post facto call them generation selfish takers?
You insist on nomenclatures of gen. Y and more.. it is more than silly...
LO...I HAVE RAISED eclectic?? ISSUES WHICH PERHAPS YOU UNDERSTAND??
- Let us go on. The Vietnam demonstrators generation...are they any different from the lunatics at universities today? Is Nimbin much different today?
Why not create the nomenclatures re generations... a b c .???
I did not join the marchers.
- ALL THIS contradicts another of dikkies theories about the good old days of his creation. His parents are responsible for his dickness' socialist dogma.
- One more thing – mainstream rational economists agree with me to your inverse cost. I spy many worthy articles in the Wall Street Journal https://www.google.com.au/#q=Malthusian+nonsense+ehrlich+wsjIn spite of all, I enjoy our semi regular on air conversations.Even if most of the time you cut me off after a mere few seconds – I guess you fear being upstaged?I dunno – or what other reason is there?Maybe you think I will get you into trouble and even take your job?Ho Hum.You amaze me in that you respond to my emails within short minutes even as you run your successful programme.it is not only the girl – people who can multi – task.I spent too much time on this. My wife and I recently returned from Israel and Europe: I will send you an email I sent the Hungarian PM.I plainly wanted an eclectic friendly ‘war’ with someone: I chose YOU, poor fellow.Do not come with the rejoinder about too much time on my hands: this is brilliant material – you should be flattered...RegardsGeoff SeidnerEast St Kilda
