Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Pagan anti-environmentalist

Am I, NeoWayland, pagan philosopher and libertarian, an anti-environmentalist?

Well,
yes.

Environmentalism is a political movement. It’s about controlling other people to achieve utopia. It’s about closing yourself off from the possibilities.

I don’t want to be limited by the word “environmentalism” anymore. I don’t think ecology is about saving the Earth. I think it’s about understanding how things fit and the tradeoffs we make. It’s about looking at where we were, where we are, and where we could go.

Environmentalism is like any other crusade. It wants to change society for our own good even if we disagree with the cause.

I resist it just as I do the extra-enthusiastic Christians who want to enshrine their beliefs as the law of the land. And for PRECISELY the same reasons.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a draft to finish for tomorrow's article.
