Why won’t Biden come clean and say something like this:
“The public policy of this administration is de-industrialization and de-civilization for the sake of improving the climate.
“High gas prices are entirely by our design, and they’re only going to get higher. Fixing the climate requires sacrifices from you, and still more sacrifices will be asked for in the coming years.
“You must lower your expectations of your standard of living. You will grow poorer with time, and so will your children. However, that is the price to pay to solve the existential problem of climate change.
“I trust you approve.”
Why can’t they tell the truth for once?
