The Objective Eye

"Every movement that seeks to enslave a country, every dictatorship or potential dictatorship, needs some minority group as a scapegoat which it can blame for the nation's troubles and use as a justification of its own demand for dictatorial powers. In Soviet Russia, the scapegoat was the bourgeoisie; in Nazi Germany, it was the Jewish people; in America, it is the businessmen."
- Ayn Rand, "America's Persecuted Minority: Big Business" (1961)

Time To Get Serious About Eco-Fascism

Now Playing: Live On by the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band, 1999

The reason I'm dedicating so much time to the ecofascism / "global warming" issue is the level of apparent complacency about it that I see. A general sense I'm picking up, even among those opposed to Gore & Co.'s lunacy, is that this is a side issue that will go away or do little harm if adopted in part (i.e., if just a little poison is accepted as a compromise with food.)

These people mean what they say and we had better get serious about defeating them. The environmental movement - as distinguished from a rational and just desire for keeping man's environment clean and healthy - is sheer anti-humanist nihilism cloaked in a veneer of benevolence. This new, concerted eco-fascist push is as great or greater a threat to America, to Western Civilization, to individual rights and human life in general, as is Islamic terrorism. The latter is at least tacitly acknowledged as a serious evil, while environmentalism has been packaged as benign, indoctrinated into generations of school kids from kindergarten onward, and generally given a free pass - more often enthusiastic support - by media and academia. I find no reason to assume that these eco-fascists are only kidding. They intend to write their toxic ideology into binding law affecting every one of us and are busy, as you read this, working to make it happen.

The most important thing that can be done in the here-and-now to defuse Gore & Co.'s ecofascist suicide bomb is to get Martin Durkin's film "The Great Global Warming Swindle" as widely disseminated as possible. The best-case scenario would be to convince its producers to finance a full-blown theatrical run and media blitz in North America and Europe, followed at an appropriate period by a DVD release and similar promotion. At least as many people who were exposed to Gore's propaganda need to see Durkin's film, at the very least to be exposed to the side of the controversy that has been heretofore squelched. As an additional idea, the film's theatrical release could be promoted with a public challenge to the Gore camp for a side-by-side screening - "and may the rational ideas win." Given Gore's hasty and telling retreat from his own commitment to be interviewed by Skeptical Environmentalist author Bjorn Lomborg, I fully expect they'll refuse any similar challenge, but in either case the result will be the same.

I recommend contacting BBC4, the British television channel that originally aired the film, with popular demand that the film be produced in theatrical, later DVD, formats, so as to reach the widest possible audiences.

For those who may scoff at my assertion that the environmentalist movement is raw anti-humanism and politically fascist in form, the following quotes provide a vivid and disturbing picture of the consistent hatred of humanity permeating that movement. Indicative of their brazen self-assuredness is the fact that past and present environmentalist leaders have made little or no attempt to conceal their true beliefs about humanity:

1. "Honorable representatives of the great saurians of older creation, may you long enjoy your lilies and rushes, and be blessed now and then with a mouthful of terror-stricken man by way of a dainty."
- A benediction to alligators by John Muir, founder of the Sierra Club, quoted with approval as "a good epigram" by environmentalist Bill McKibben in "The End of Nature" (New York: Random House, 1989) pg. 176

2. "We have wished...for a disaster or for a social change to come and bomb us back into the stone age..."
- Environmentalist Stewart Brand in "The Whole Earth Catalog"

3. "You think Hiroshima was bad, let me tell you, mister, Hiroshima wasn't bad enough!"
- Faye Dunaway as the voice of "Mother Earth/Gaia" in the 1991 WTBS series "Voice of the Planet"

4. "Given the total, absolute, and final disappearance of Homo Sapiens, then, not only would the Earth's Community of Life continue to exist but...the ending of the human epoch on Earth would most likely be greeted with a hearty 'Good riddance!'"
- Paul W. Taylor, ethics professor at City University, NYC, in "Respect for Nature" (Princeton Univ Press, 1989) pg. 115

5. "If you'll give the idea a might agree that the extinction of Homo Sapiens would mean survival for millions if not billions of other Earth-dwelling species."
- The "Voluntary Extinction Movement," quoted by Daniel Seligman in "Down With People," in Fortune magazine, September 23, 1991

6. "The extinction of the human species may not only be inevitable, but a good thing..."
- Editorial in The Economist, December 28, 1988

7. "A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells; the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people...We must shift our efforts from treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer. ...We must have population compulsion if voluntary methods fail."
- Paul Ehrlich, "The Population Bomb" (Ballantine Books 1968) pg. xi, pg. 166

8. "...Man is no more important than any other species...It may well take our extinction to set things straight."
- David Foreman, "Earth First!" spokesman, quoted by M. John Fayhee in Backpacker magazine, September 1988, pg. 22

9. "I see no solution to our ruination of Earth except for a drastic reduction of the human population."
- David Foreman, "Earth First!", quoted by Gregg Easterbrook in The New Republic, April 30, 1990, pg. 18

10. "If radical environmentalists were to invent a disease to bring human populations back to sanity, it would probably be something like AIDS."
- Earth First! periodical, quoted in "Access to Energy," Vol.17 No.4, December 1989

11. "As radical environmentalists, we can see AIDS not as a problem but a necessary solution."
- Earth First! periodical, quoted in "Planet Stricken" by Alan Pell Crawford and Art Levine, Vogue magazine, September 1989, pg. 710

12. "I founded Friends of the Earth to make the Sierra Club look reasonable. Then I founded the Earth Island Institute to make Friends of the Earth look reasonable. Earth First! now makes us look reasonable. We're still waiting for someone to come along and make Earth First! look reasonable."
- "Mainstream" environmentalist David Brower, quoted by Virginia Postrel in Reason magazine, April 1990, pg. 24

13. "We are not interested in the utility of a particular species, or free-flowing river, or ecosystem to mankind. They have...more value - to me - than another human body, or a billion of them...Until such time as Homo Sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along."
- David M. Graber, National Park Service biologist, in a review of Bill McKibben's "The End of Nature," in the Los Angeles Times Book Review, October 22, 1989, pg. 9

14. "Childbearing [should be] a punishable crime against society...all potential parents [should be] required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing."
- Herr David Brower, founder of Friends of the Earth, quoted in "The Coercive Utopians" by Rael Jean Isaac and Erich Isaac (1985 Regnery Gateway Inc.)

15. "I got the impression that instead of going out to shoot birds, I should go out and shoot the kids who shoot birds."
- Paul Watson, founder of "Greenpeace," quoted in "Access to Energy" Vol.17 No.4, December 1989

16. "We, in the Green movement, aspire to a cultural model in which the killing of a forest will be considered more contemptible and more criminal than the sale of 6-year old children to Asian brothels."
- Carl Amery of the Green Party, quoted in "Mensch & Energie," April 1983

17. "A reporter asked Dr. Wurster whether or not the ban on the use of DDT would not encourage the use of the very toxic materials, Parathion, Azedrin and Methylparathion, the organo-phosphates, [and] nerve gas derivatives. And he said 'Probably'. The reporter then asked him if these organo-phosphates did not have a long record of killing people. And Dr. Wurster, reflecting the views of a
number of other scientists, said 'So what? People are the cause of all the problems; we have too many of them; we need to get rid of some of them; and this is as good a way as any
- Victor J. Yannacone, Jr., lawyer and co-founder of the Environmental Defense Fund, on EDF co-founder Dr. Charles Wurster, at a May 20, 1970 speech at the Union League Club in New York City. Published in the Congressional Record as Serial No.92-A of Hearings on Federal Pesticide Control Act of 1971, pg.266-267

The subsequent eco-terrorist activities, with a toll in the millions of dollars and several human lives, are a matter of public record; literally millions have lost their lives to malaria annually - environmentalism's Malaria Holocaust - since the environmental movement succeeded in banning DDT in the early '70s. Even as people continue to drop dead of a disease that had been nearly eradicated by the '60s, the environmentalists are now using the malaria resurgence they themselves engineered as another catastrophe that will result from..."global warming." These anti-humanists have no consciences.

Ponder the fact that the core premises of any given movement determine its direction, and ponder those instances in recent history in which citizens thought a "benign" version of an ideology that explicitly calls for the slaughter of human beings might be practicable despite its intellectual leaders' stated attitudes and intentions. In the case of Weimar Germany early in the 20th century, the people
heard and read what was being promoted by the haters of humanity, accepted with enthusiasm the ethics of self-sacrificial duty and the politics of collectivism, dismissed the acts promoted in accordance with that philosophy as "the recklessness of a few extremists" - then discovered far too late that the "extremism" was a consistent expression of the movement's core principles.

The results, as they say...

And then there's Mr. Santayana's famous quote...
