Environmentalism today is more about misanthropy and human sacrifice than it is about saving nature. Saving nature is only the rationalization behind a more insideous motive, hatred for man’s mind. Here are some quotes from the horses’ mouths.
At the website Environmentalism.com are these three quotes, (with a link to even more):
Human beings, as a species, have no more value than slugs.
—John Davis, editor of Earth First! Journal
Phasing out the human race will solve every problem on earth, social and environmental.
—Dave Forman, Founder of Earth First!
I know scientists who remind me that people are part of nature, but it isn’t true. Somewhere along the line … we quit the contract and became a cancer. We have become a plague upon ourselves and upon the Earth…. Until such time as Homo sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along. (source: “Mother Nature as a hothouse flower,” Los Angeles Times Book Review, October 22, 1989, p. 10.)
—David Graber, biologist, National Park Service
The above quotes show that the leaders of environmentalism place little or no value on human life and do not regard man as part of nature. But this is not just a small insignificant sample. There are many more at for example the conservative site Free Republic. Such as this quote which reveals the real inner motive of those who hate man:
“We have wished, we ecofreaks, for a disaster or for a social change to come and bomb us into Stone Age, where we might live like Indians in our valley, with our localism, our appropriate technology, our gardens, our homemade religion — guilt-free at last! — Stewart Brand (writing in the Whole Earth Catalogue”
Such is the power of guilt. It turns men against their own species, against themselves.
And how do you get men to accept an unearned guilt? By referring to nature not as nature but as ‘the environment.’ Get them to think they are responsible not only for their own environment but for everyone else’s as well. Don’t talk about the fact that environments are regional and local. Get them to accept the idea that their environment is global and therefore a man in Michigan is responsible for environmental damage in Peru. Make him feel guilty for that damage and he will not resist your demand that he atone for his guilt by handing over his money and freedom, or to support government policies that accomplish the same thing.
