“In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, to contribute something to solving overpopulation.”
—Prince Philip, Consort to Queen Elizabeth II and Co-Founder of the World Wildlife Fund
The “Green New Deal” recently called for by a few unstable members of the U.S. Congress is a farce. It is neither “green,” nor is it new. It has nothing to do with concern for the environment or with so-called social justice. It is not, as some claim, an overly-inflated version of an otherwise worthy goal.
It is an attempt to cause chaos in U.S. policy; to further poison relations between President Trump and potentially collaborative members of Congress; and most of all, to lock the U.S. into an anti-growth, anti-development policy at a moment when the Chinese-initiated Belt and Road Initiative is opening up a new paradigm of anti-colonial progress and development around the world—something the U.S. with its decaying infrastructure and industry desperately needs.
Though the Green New Deal is vague and laughable enough to be denounced even by prominent members of the Democratic Party, it yet retains its prominent place in the daily news cycle, even covered by one news source as a policy rooted in the legacy of Alexander Hamilton. Hundreds of young people have suddenly appeared out of nowhere to call for its implementation, traveling by bus to Washington DC to corner lawmakers and demand “action.”
The obvious question for any thinking person is: Where did this come from, and why now?
The timing and intentions of this attempted hijacking of U.S. policy are no mystery. In December 2018, the British House of Lords released a report on the implications of a “shifting world order” for UK foreign policy, which revealingly named the potential of a second term of a Trump presidency as an existential threat which the British Empire agenda simply could not survive.
As the post-war world order of geopolitics and speculative finance collapses, President Trump’s instincts have been to end US involvement in regime change wars; to resolve decades-long conflicts, such as that with North Korea; to form cooperative rather than antagonistic relationships with other world powers like Russia and China; and to pull the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Accord. In short: to pull the rug out from under the strategic control over nations which the Anglo-American elites have exercised for nearly a century. All of this, a desperate and dying empire cannot abide.
Green Death and Neo-Colonialism
The modern environmentalist movement, to which so many deluded people in the West today pay obeisance, was never a grassroots movement of concerned youth, and never had anything to do with saving the Earth. It was created and promoted from the beginning by the British Empire to stop development: as a depopulation policy.
Emerging out of the eugenics movement, which became somewhat unpopular in the wake of Hitler’s genocide, the re-branded “ecology” or “conservation” movement continued the goal of maintaining the pre-war colonial system in the post-WWII world.
In 1960, Julian “Master Race” Huxley, co-founder of the World Wildlife Fund and once-head of the British Eugenics Society, made very clear the “conservation” movement’s colonial intentions:“These newly independent African nations cannot be trusted with the protection of natural spaces and endangered species. Therefore, we must have an international body which can take stewardship of these lands.”Huxley’s stewardship meant that by the mid-1990s, Britain, through the WWF, regained control over roughly 8% of the African continent, preventing the development of its resources for the people of Africa.
In 1968, money from some of the biggest oligarchical families in the West was deployed to found the Club of Rome, which declared,“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine, and the like would fit the bill….But in designating them as the enemy, we fall into the trap of mistaking symptoms for causes…. The real enemy, then, is humanity itself.”In parallel the United Nations sponsored a series of conferences on population in the mid-1970s to promote the idea that human population growth is a cancer on the planet, and launched the hoax of “sustainable development.”
Concurrently, under U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger (who famously declared that he felt more British than American), NSSM-200 was authored, defining the economic development of other nations, especially in the so-called “Third World,” as a threat to U.S. national security interests, stating,“Wherever a lessening of population pressures through reduced birth rates can increase the prospects for such stability, population policy becomes relevant to resource supplies and to the economic interests of the United States.”
Out of this process—not honest scientific work—came the formation of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 1988, with a goal of inducing nations into signing binding agreements to limit their own development and industrialization based on lies of the dangers of CO2 and a coming climate apocalypse. Should we be surprised, then, that the resolution for a Green New Deal cites the October 2018 report of the IPCC, “Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C” in its first sentence as the urgent basis for action?
Youth Need a Future, Not a Suicide Pact
The public face of support for the Green New Deal is “the future”: school-aged children and young people. Is it the case that these youth are rising up on their own accord? Hardly.
