Via The Englishman I have sound this recipe for the death of everything I hold dear from Obama's Science Czar, John Holdren:
"Perhaps those agencies, combined with UNEP and the United Nations population agencies, might eventually be developed into a Planetary Regime—sort of an international superagency for population, resources, and environment. Such a comprehensive Planetary Regime could control the development, administration, conservation, and distribution of all natural resources, renewable or nonrenewable, at least insofar as international implications exist. Thus the Regime could have the power to control pollution not only in the atmosphere and oceans, but also in such freshwater bodies as rivers and lakes that cross international boundaries or that discharge into the oceans. The Regime might also be a logical central agency for regulating all international trade, perhaps including assistance from DCs to LDCs, and including all food on the international market.
The Planetary Regime might be given responsibility for determining the optimum population for the world and for each region and for arbitrating various countries' shares within their regional limits. Control of population size might remain the responsibility of each government, but the Regime would have some power to enforce the agreed limits."
It is no exaggeration to say that this is the sort of twisted, evil thinking that lead to Mao's China or Stalin's USSR but this idea is even worse. Not only does this scum want to produce a totalitarian hell but he wants it to be impossible to escape. There's no point going into the detail of why Holdren's baneful plans are so appalling, they are another expression of the madness that has snuffed out the lives of so many. Nor would I, even given the very unlikely opportunity, bother trying to convince this degenerate sea louse of a man that his opinions are wrong; you cannot reason with the the utterly insane or the truly evil.
Those things that I value, the wonderful products of what can roughly be described as Liberal Humanism, are ever under attack from would be tyrants. It doesn't really matter what motivates those attackers, whether it is to bring us into the fold of their sky fairy or doing it for the planet or our supposed own good, the only difference is the colour of the shirt and hour of ritual obeisance. Those of us who treasure our civilization have a duty to resist the works of malignant cankers like Holdren and his ilk and that brings me to a practical matter that is often misunderstood by those on the well meaning left:
Libertarians and those who would tend to be classified as on the right of the political spectrum resist big government and particularly supra-national organisations, primarily for non petty reasons. Our objections arise because we know that if you give any structure too much power over people, then it will eventually try to bring about the kind of hell Holdren proposes. A big government always finds ways to fill its days and expand its duties and once all the sensible things are being done, the only place to expand into is the area that it has no business being in. We should not let these structures get too big or too powerful. Too powerful and they become oppressive, too big and there is no escape.
