Demotism is a form of mob rule, where politicians pander to what they see as the popular will, rather than making their own decisions as independent leaders. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. used the occasion of the recent Climate March in Manhattan to grandstand and attempt to increase the demotic pressure of the mob on UN attendees of a Climate Summit. If he were any less charitable towards those who disagreed with his views on climatology, he’d be inviting them for a swim in Chappaquiddick. Instead he’d be content if they were in jail with all the other war criminals. His actual quote, aimed at the Koch Brothers, follows below.
“I think it’s treason. Do I think the Koch Brothers are treasonous, yes I do,” Kennedy explained. “They are enjoying making themselves billionaires by impoverishing the rest of us. Do I think they should be in jail, I think they should be enjoying three hots and a cot at the Hague with all the other war criminals,” Kennedy declared.(HT:CNSNews)

Walter Russell Mead described the attempted sleight-of-hand at the Climate March in Manhattan.
Crazed grouplets of anti-capitalist movements trying to fan the embers of Marxism back to life, gender and transgender groups with their own spin on climate, earnest eco-warriors, publicity-seeking hucksters, adrenalin junkies, college kids wanting a taste of the venerable tradition of public protest, and, as always, a great many people who don’t think that burning marijuana adds to the world’s CO2 load, marched down Manhattan’s streets.The American Interest
Of course there is only one way to keep this large of an unkempt, shambling mob on the shamble. You find a nice, plump witch to burn. People are forced by the mob action into hardened points …read more
