Eliminate Everyone

The New Editor has cogent comments about the hope of eliminating 90% of the world's population in the now-notorious lecture by Eric Pianka at UTexas. Be sure to read Comment #16

Zoology prof Eric is distressed at the 85% increase in population in the last 25 years. Seeing that we know where that increase is coming from – the black, brown, and yellow peoples of the world – why is no one calling this guy a racist? I wonder how much of environmentalism in general is unconscious racism?

Caught your post at Americablog, thought this might interest you---


VOTER INITIATIVE ON THE BUDGET AND TAXES - THE FINAL SAY-SO FROM YOU - THE
TAXPAYER.
This concept is - that you, the taxpayer - since it is YOUR money - should have
total control of how much taxes comes out of your pocket to support your
government, and with a 'yes' or 'no' - final say-so - agreement vote, a go or
no-go vote, on any and all budgets that said taxes contribute toward.

In other words, if you agree with how your tax dollars are going to be spent -
you vote yes. And if you don't agree - then you vote no, at which time the
legislature will have to come up with a budget that the taxpayers will agree to
vote yes on. Otherwise, the money just doesn't get spent - it sits in the
treasury.

Afterall, you own all three - the money, the pocket it comes out of, and the
government it's spent on - it's your money, not theirs.

I don't think it's as much racism as plain old misanthropy. Nothing new, in other words - the environmental movement has ALWAYS been misanthropic at heart. Humans have ALWAYS been blamed.
