Marxist Environmentalism

by Al Benson Jr.

That what we call today environmentalism or the environmentalist movement is a creature of the far left is beyond doubt. All you have to do is connect the dots and you never have to worry about any of them being on the right side of the page. And the United Nations is at the very heart of leftist environmentalism.

There was an article on http://www.foxnews.com on April 18, 2011 by Jonathan Wachtel which stated: “United Nations diplomats on Wednesday will set aside pressing issues of international peace and security to devote an entire day debating the rights of ‘Mother Earth.’ A bloc of mostly socialist government led by Bolivia have put the issue on the General Assembly agenda to discuss the creation of a U.N. treaty that would grant the same rights found in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to Mother Nature. Treaty supporters want the establishment of legal systems to maintain balance between human rights and what they perceive as the inalienable rights of other members of the Earth community—plants, animals, and terrain.” In other words, folks, rocks have rights, and if you dare violate the “rights” of any rock, boulder, stone or pebble, you just might be in big trouble with the U.N. Same goes for lizards, spiders, and other creeping wildlife! Or as someone so clearly stated: “Just to make sure we understand, human babies in the womb do NOT deserve human rights. But that tree over there, those bugs under that rock, do.” That about sums up the worldview of many in both the United Nations and the (dis)United States.

The goal of the Environmentalist Movement actually has been quite clearly stated by the U.N.’s Executive Secretary of the U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, Christiana Figueres of Costa Rica. In an article by Burt Prelutsky on http://www.BurtPrelutsky.com Ms. Figueres has, in a very straightforward manner noted that “the primary goal of environmentalists, of which she is one, is not to save the world from ecological calamity, but to destroy capitalism. Go back and read that last line one more time. This lady is telling you what the environmentalist move really is all about! She doesn’t mince words. She says, right up front, as quoted on http://www.lucianne.com “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution. This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.” The website http://www.12160.info has headlined the article about this: “U.N. Official Reveals Real Reason Behind Warming Scare—Destruction Of Capitalism.” That’s an accurate headline. However, I doubt that your local evening “news” paper or your television network news program will ever mention anything about this. They wouldn’t dare. This is the sort of news they get paid to conceal, to pretend it doesn’t exist, it never happened, and if you should dare to have read enough to be able to quote this “lady” at the U.N., why then you are a “conspiracy theorist” because anyone who really knows what goes on just knows she didn’t really mean it the way it sounded. Problem is, she did. She meant it exactly the way it sounded, which shows that the ruling establishment in this country figures that, by now, our public “education” system has so dumbed us down that we won’t grasp the enormity of what was said. Sadly, in some cases, they may be right. I know some folks, some who are even Christians, hearing her statement and responding with a loud yawn as they wonder when the next “reality show” will show up on the tube.

I have always had my doubts about the global warming scam. I saw a statement just last night from some “news” source that said that this winter has, so far, been the second warmest on record. I thought to myself, who are you trying to kid? Both last year and so far this year we have had two of the coldest, most miserable winters here in the Deep South that we’ve had since we moved here and you are telling me this has been a warm winter! In fact, last year, when it got so cold here we actually had newscasters with the gall to tell us that the cold weather we were experiencing was caused by global warming. In other words it’s colder because it’s warmer! This sounds like logic that only a Yankee/Marxist could come up with!

One of the websites I checked out before doing this article had this comment: “For a moment the mask dropped, and the real face of Big Green could be seen. Is their goal a cooler, cleaner earth? No, it’s the destruction of capitalism. Future generations will consider efforts to control ‘climate change’ to have been political insanity.”

Does anyone remember the big fuss in England a few short years ago when the climate change people over there were caught “cooking the books” as it were in regard to global warming? After that little episode you didn’t hear much about global warming for almost a year. But, when they figured the furor had died down and folks had forgotten all about it, they started right up again with the same old global warming shell game. So we need to start asking ourselves—who controls those that are pushing the global warming agenda? And who will make money off the global warming agenda and who will be harmed by it?

They’ve already told us their intent is to destroy capitalism. What do they intend to replace it with? I don’t think you really want to know. Now I’m not a big fan of monopoly capitalism or crony capitalism, which is really a form of industrial fascism, but I think genuine free enterprise capitalism is a pretty good idea. It certainly has raised living standards in many places, here among them. So what are we going to replace capitalism with—a system where rocks and trees have “rights”? Rights for rocks and none for man? That’s where those people are really headed.

If you want to start connecting the dots, then go back to the first “Earth Day” back on April 22, 1970, which by the sheerest of coincidences, just happened to be the 100th anniversary of Lenin’s birth. Follow that down and you will see that the Environmental Movement has, since then, sought to regulate and control what industry did and even what went on in rural areas. Why the big fuss over the desert tortoise in Nevada or the medfly in California? All these so-called crises work against the productivity of capitalism and in doing that they put unreasonable controls on how someone may use his property. It may be in his name but the government will tell him what he can and can’t do with it. Then go read The Communist Manifesto where Marx says: “In this sense, the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property.” Or where he says “Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes; Abolition of all rights of inheritance; Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels;” or yet, in the face of the soon-coming regulation of the Internet “Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state.” And the one they are accomplishing this all by, even in our day “Free education for all children in public schools…”

Years ago someone aptly labeled the environmentalists “The watermelon gang” because they were “green on the outside and Red inside.” The woman at the U.N. told us very plainly what the global warming scenario and the environmental movement as a whole was and is all about—the destruction of capitalism—and with it the destruction of our way of life in this country. Does that bother anyone—or will most just yawn again as they seek to tune in the next “reality show”?
