Amerika!

We’re all living in America, America is wunderbar. We’re all living in America, Amerika, Amerika. And you’ve been watching those Alex Jones videos, you know, the Obama conspiracy ones, and thought that the “New World Government” is a Socialist totalitarian system… Some thought again, and concluded that the New World Order was not Socialist but instead…

Conservation and Conservatism

Environmentalism has failed to achieve its goals because it has become distanced from its roots, which are in conservatism. Conservatives preserve and nurture what is natural, whether it is culture, heritage, or natural surroundings. Liberalism rebels against nature and replaces it with a human concept, called “ideology,” rooted in the notions of the individual that…

Jacques Cousteau

Among advocates for nature, underwater explorer Jacques-Yves Cousteau remains a perpetual favorite for his embrace of natural species without moralizing their predatory and often dangerous ways. He steered people past fear to appreciation for the world beneath the waves. He also made a number of statements which left and right alike recoil from in horror….

Pentti Linkola

“We still have a chance to be cruel, but if we are not cruel today, all is lost.” Pentti Linkola writes about the apocalyptic climactic changes that will soon effect us here in humanityland, but he doesn’t take the easy way out that most authors do. Most “environmentalists” (greens, conservationists) emphasize a strategy of limiting…

Polystyrene

From  (www.myspace.com/datejesus) Expandable polystyrene (EPS) is a petroleum-based product that is frequently used for food packaging purposes. This material is currently non-recyclable and non-biodegradable (i.e., unable to decay into constituent substances).

Environmentalism Contra Democracy

A smart writer once observed that philosophy is a product of sick times. Healthy generations do not need reminders of what is right, but inherit those inclinations through blood and culture. When culture fragments, or wavers near disaster, philosophers become more than teachers of structured knowledge: they become those who can look through the forest…

Frustration with Politics

Societies are large, and within them, we use means of communication to organize ourselves so we can act as a single entity. This is the founding principle of civilization: division of labor and delegation of both control and function. The people allow themselves to have leaders; the leaders, who would normally follow the old saw…

Sociopathy

The pragmatically extremist core of the green movement has never been compatible with the mainstream of the same. Where middle of the road greenism is basically an extension of the democratic party, “extremist” (read: realistic, if we want to solve the problem) greenism has never fit into the leftist family of brands. Part of the…

Green

The first casualty of any populist system is the ability to exist in a non-partisan activity. Since your power results from marshaling together a group and getting them to exert the weight of numbers, you have to dumb down your ideas to the point where a group can accept them and agree on them. Since…

Oh, Global Warming

In a time when people build their self-image around what they believe, in order to “morally” justify their modes of living, any issue of importance is immediately polarized between the identifications of opposing camps, and thus debate moves from the issue itself to the reasons for its condemnation or approval. Such is the case with…
