Ecofascism

Quote:

"The composition of the Greens seems to be the same as that of the population in general — mainly pieces of drifting wood, people who never think."

"A minority can never have any other effective means to influence the course of matters but through the use of violence."

"Any dictatorship would be better than modern democracy. There cannot be so incompetent dictator, that he would show more stupidity than a majority of the people. Best dictatorship would be one where lots of heads would roll and government would prevent any economical growth."

"The most central and irrational faith among people is the faith in technology and economical growth. Its priests believe until their death that material prosperity bring enjoyment and happiness - even though all the proofs in history have shown that only lack and attempt cause a life worth living, that the material prosperity doesn't bring anything else than despair. These priests believe in technology still when they choke in their gas masks."

"That there are billions of people over 60kg weight on this planet is recklessness."

"Alternative movements and groups are a welcome relief and a present for the society of economic growth."

"We will have to...learn from the history of revolutionary movements — the national socialists, the Finnish Stalinists, from the many stages of the Russian revolution, from the methods of the Red Brigades — and forget our narcissistic selves."

"Everything we have developed over the last 100 years should be destroyed."
Quote:
Linkola is one of the few voices who advocates:

1) No immigration
2) Downsize population
3) Kill defectives
4) Stop rampant technology


In the eyes of the most credible sources, planet Earth can sustain a half-billion humans without any sizable destruction of our habitat, or any loss in species or stability of our ecosystem. Any numbers higher than that, no matter how much they recycle, will cause environmental chaos. The modern leftist-tinged environmental movement is terrified of telling anyone that they cannot breed and keep buying whatever strikes their fancy, but someone must do this in the future. The sooner we do it, the fewer people in the future will be left without a means of sustenance and thus require termination.

As Linkola himself has said, "We still have a chance to be cruel. But if we are not cruel today, all is lost."

it's obvious this planet suffers from over-population

I agree,..the world is maybe overpopulated with people who want a house with 10 bedrooms and 5 toilets,....and addicted to consuming.

Silly question but, can GM crops be used as Biofuels ?

Why is it a silly question? If they are safe for human consumption, deliver better nutrition and grow under harsher conditions with less land use and fewer pesticides they can reduce food shortages.

it's not that there isn't enough room for the present population, but we do not have the necessary natural resources
which does have a lot to do with the way we consume
but i don't think that can be reversed that easily

it will only get worse as the amount of consumers will just keep increasing
at a work meeting some people were pondering the options of the African market for our company (and we make sweets, so not actually one of life's basic necessities )
the general consensus is that at some point it will be done, but at the moment no one (hardly anyone) will invest there as the Asian market is the place to go for a quick return in investments
once the Asian market has been satisfied though Africa will follow
so the number of consumers will just keep growing & growing
