Do Mussolini count as Hitler to declare you have lost the argument?

It is lovely when leftist lose arguments and turn to violence and
threats of violence or dreaming violence.
Berlusconi was victim of two attacks during his mandates.
Violence is, probably, the only way leftists in Italy would be able to
get rid of him, as the voters think differently.

This is bullshit.
I know well that wind power need gas power station to work, because wind
don't blow continuously and the grid don't like power fluctuations.
Colder the climate, less wind you have.
Wind cost 5 times (at least) more than nuclear power and coal.
You don't run foundries with mills nor with solar panels.

Last fall/winter, the mills in Scotland stopped when the place had the
worse winter in decades (second  time in a row). When people die because
of the cold, what do you tell them. Capitalists hoarded the winds?
Capitalist hoarded the sun?

The politics could afford it, for sure.
I'm not sure the people unemployed and that will stay unemployed because
of the high cost of the energy will be able to afford it.

I suppose they can afford to buy fossil fuels from dictators, religious
nuts and leftist caudillos.
People in power often can afford many things people without power can
not. The same is true for people receiving subsides.

Do look at the prices.

When solar or wind will be economically independent from subsides paid
by nuclear and coal, they can argue as much as they want.
When they will be as affordable and dependable as nuclear and coal power
I could also listen to them.

Power up electric cars and trucks with solar panels and wind.
Humanity overrated? Maybe. Some humans that think to be better and born
better? For sure.

Eugene, if you go down this path you will find much affinity with
Stefano Vaj. I'm sure he will be happy to welcome you in the mids of the
Sovrumanists, if you wear chrome plated jackboots.
