JEMAIL: McFadden, Michael J. (MC1973) cites local HG2TG aka Google

2015-Jan-18

John, you wrote, “JR: Yes. There are so many regs and diktats, one is always a “law breaker”!”

Perhaps you or one of the other Jaspers out there can help me. There is a well-known quote (and perhaps more than one) that expresses the idea that the “State” can have ultimate power over everyone simply by setting up such a complex and un-meetable system of laws and regulations that *everyone* will always be in some degree of violation of something and thus subject to punishment unless they “cooperate” with whatever new demand is being levied.

I believe I’ve actually seen at least two different well-stated expressions of this concept. One, perhaps from “1984” (which I really *should* read for a fourth time probably….) and another from an actual dictatorial real-life politician — perhaps a Nazi or a Stalinist or an East Euro 1950s’ Soviet dictator. There’s no simple unique phrasing or set of keywords that I’ve found that will pop it up on my local Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy (aka, “Google”) but I’m sure someone out there will remember it and its source.

Best quote that expresses that sense imho is:

“If you give me six lines written by the hand of the most honest of men, I will find something in them which will hang him.” — Cardinal Richelieu

Laff!

Thanks for the comment.

Love the reference to the HG2TG!

JEMAIL: McFadden, Michael J. (MC1973) on encouraging the Stazi mentality

2015-Jan-12

From the Jottings on the Vigilante Handicap Enforcers:

“Who died and left these bozos the “parking lot police”?”

The same folks who’ve revived using the “Good Citizen (or Good Student) Snitch Mentality” to enforce smoking bans. It used to be that laws were passed that were so infrequently ignored that we could have enforcement only by designated and trained police. Today we have so many stifling regulations that are so widely resented by significant portions of the populace that we’ve encouraged the Stazi mentality: if you see someone violating a regulation either report it or “enforce” it in some way yourself.

The smashed side mirror is an example of that sort of enforcement. The pregnant smoker getting shot in a parking lot is another.

http://www.unep.org/experts/default.asp?Page=profiles&ExpertID=474&ShowList=%20no&eName=Joseph%20Alcamo

Prof. Joseph Alcamo is Chief Scientist of the United Nations Environment Programme and the first Chief Scientist appointed within the UN system. Since coming to UNEP in 2009, he has been working to strengthen the interface between global science and policy. He has convened groups of scientists to produce quick response reports for policy making on climate change, air pollution, ozone layer depletion, and food security issues.

While at UNEP he has helped found the Climate and Clean Air Coalition, an alliance of governments and non-state partners dedicated to fast action on pollutants that cause both air pollution and climate change. At UNEP he has also initiated an international “Foresight” process for identifying emerging issues, co-founded a new umbrella organization for climate impact science (PROVIA), co-organized the UN Global Assessment of Water Quality, and helped found Future Earth a new international framework for global change research.

He is on leave as Director of the Center for Environmental Systems Research at the University of Kassel, Germany and Professor of Environmental Systems Science and Engineering. His main scientific contributions have been in the areas of global modelling of the environment, integrated assessment modelling, environmental scenario analysis, and climate impact research with a focus on the impacts of climate change on water resources.

Earlier, Alcamo led the development of the IMAGE 2 model, one of the first integrated models of climate change, and was co-author of the IPCC SRES emission scenarios which have been used for ten years as a main input for projecting climate change. He has been active with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for more than 15 years. He has published widely on the subject of climate change impacts on water resources and land use, and produced six books on global environmental themes including the 1998 book Global Change Scenarios of the 21st Century (Pergamon Press), and the 2012 book on “Life in Europe under Climate Change (Wiley-Blackwell). He was a Coordinating Lead Author with the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA) and coordinated the global modeling of MA scenarios.

He is co-founder of the Global Water System Project of the Earth System Science Partnership, and through this project and other activities has strongly promoted water research on the global scale. In the 1990s his team in Kassel developed one of the first global water resource models, WaterGAP, which has since been used in many global assessments and studies of the world water system. Later he contributed to the first World Water Vision scenarios, and he recently led the development of one of the first continental-scale models of ambient river water quality.

He received the Max Planck Research Prize for helping to develop the field of integrated modelling of the environment, and is a recipient of the Grand Prix des Lumires de l’Eau de Cannes for contributions to global water research.
