Merchants of Despair: Radical Environmentalists, Criminal Pseudo-Scientists
THERE WAS A time when humanity looked in the mirror and saw something precious, worth protecting and fighting for, indeed, worth liberating. Starting with the Biblical idea of the human spirit as the image of God, taken forward by Renaissance humanists defending the dignity of man, our greatest thinkers developed a concept of civilization dedicated to human betterment and â€œunalienable rightsâ€ among which are â€œLife, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness,â€ proudly asserting that â€œto secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men.â€
But now, we are beset on all sides by propaganda promoting a radically different viewpoint. According to this idea, humans are a cancer upon the Earth, a horde of vermin whose unconstrained aspirations and appetites are endangering the natural order. This is the core idea of antihumanism. Its acceptance can only have the most pernicious consequences.
One does not provide liberty to vermin. One does not seek to advance the cause of a cancer.
