I hadn’t heard of Pentti Linkola before:
I must confess that I’m always rather pleased to see environmentalist nutters like this coming to light. It was only a couple of weeks ago that I learned that Charles Manson has become something of a genocidal environmental guru. With friends like these, who needs enemies?
Not so long ago, the Greens and environmentalists were regarded as good guys, gallantly fighting against money-grubbing capitalism’s rape of the earth. These days they’re increasingly looking far more nasty and thuggish and murderous than their enemies ever were. But it’s not very surprising, really. Once you’ve started worshipping the earth (or “Gaia”) as an idol, and started seeing humans as a sort of plague, then pretty soon you’re going to start advocating mass murder.
Not far behind them are figures like NASA’s James Hansen, who goes along with environmentalist Keith Farnish in advocating sabotage and environmental terrorism. And then there’s James Lovelock who thinks that “democracy should be put on hold” in order to confront climate change.
And of course Tobacco Control is part of the revitalised eugenics movement called “lifestyle medicine”.
And the eugenics creed is inherently discriminatory and murderous. Once people start saying that there is some sort of ideal human type – non-smoking, non-drinking, athletic, and blonde -, everybody else becomes a second-class citizen, and a blemish on society that needs to be removed like an ugly wart.
I’ve often drawn parallels between global warming science and antismoking science. But perhaps those parallels were so easy to find because both are part of the same eugenics movement. They just operate on different wings. One seeks the extermination of most of the human race. The other seeks the extermination of smokers and drinkers and other “unfit” persons. It’s all one and the same thing. And both tendencies trace their ancestry back to Nazi Germany.
The fight against global warming zealots is one and the same thing as the fight against antismoking and anti-alcohol and anti-food zealots.
