The Misanthropes: Eco-Radicals

The Misanthropes:Eco-Radicals

Eco-Radicals: They've long been with us, those who would rid Earth of humans. But now, thanks to some media currency, we can see where the environmental movement is headed.

Encouraging families to have fewer children seems innocuous, perhaps thoughtful. It's easy to dismiss those who support such measures as harmless busybodies, not ill-willed environmentalists.

Beware, however, of apparent banality.

Groups such as England's Optimum Population Trust have to be subtle. While a planet with few people — or perhaps no people — is their ideal, they know they can't say that. They have to contemplatively submit that, in the words of John Guillebaud, OPT co-chairman and emeritus professor of family planning at University College London, "The greatest thing anyone in Britain could do to help the future of the planet would be to have one less child."

What? Is AlGore Disease THIS catching? Sometimes, I think the whole world is insane - at least the lefty parts.

I know those gawdawful ELF or whatever spike our trees here in Northern California - these great, compassionate people don't give a damn if they hurt a logger - as long as they save a tree.

You want to know why Southern Cal frequently has such bad fires? Rad groups pitch a bith everytime the state wants to cut back a swath of forest and remove all the underbrush trees.

For great insight into this sick mindset read Tom Clancy's "Rainbow Six" or Michael Crichton's "State of Fear." These people are even nuttier than Allah's gangsters!

Fuck, these people need to volunteer to go first if they're so damned high-minded.
