What is Truth?

In our confusing and confounding world, we now have the big issues of Global Warming, Anti-Flu Shots, Carbon Footprints, Vaccine Resistant Bacteria, Climate Change, Chemotherapy, Environmental Disasters, Anti-Psychotic Pharmaceutical Drugs, The Extinction of All Life on Planet Earth, Genetic Cloning, Robotic Assemblies, MRI Brain Scans, Social Media Clicks, Rising Temperatures, The Deep Web, Illegal Drugs, Illegal Immigration, Border Wars, Auto-Driving Vehicles, Carbon Taxes, Green Energy Solutions, Rampant Fires, Earthquake Fracking, Peak Oil, Renewable Energy Solutions. Surgical Military Strikes, Depleted Uranium Bombs. Again, I am confused.

I am just a historian, and so my knowledge of such scientific data and environmental systems is almost nil. I do know quite well, and can readily discern, historical ideologies, however.

They propagate unfortunately as the great scourges of our modern-contemporary world. Modern ideologies have transformed our already confusing mental systems of forms, sensations, concepts, impulses and identities, into false Dharmas, or into our modern, crap religious dogmas.

For every modern world ideology, there are now millions of fanatics ready to destroy life wherever and whenever – just for some terrible hypes of lies. Anarchists must expose such ideologies and their institutions, as we defend liberty against the violence of the Modern State and Global Monopoly Capitalism.

There is one such ideology, like Marxist Communism and Socialism, which has also infiltrated Anarchy. It likes to call itself Environmentalism.

I am not referring to Primitive Anarchism, which is actually a well-formed critique against our current technology fetish inside of the corrupt political-economy. Nor am I referring to those courageous forest defenders who are currently protecting old growth tree life from future tree farming. And I am especially not implying the vegan-animal rights activists closing down the fur extermination centers, zoos, circuses, pet stores, or exposing the horrifying domesticated animal death camps for massive meat consumption.

I am instead referring to corporate, pro-government environmentalism, which demands reserved spaces, or nature reservations, for majestic mountain or high ocean views, totally clear of urban landscapes, or wilderness parks; while at the same time, allowing overgrazing, industrial farming, animal mass extermination plants, and residential sprawl on so-called, non-beautiful nature areas, such as swamps, valley deserts, foothills, plains and river roadways.

Its Non-Profit Corporate Institutions are simply the conduits that relay wealthy money from one group of Earth and Life Destroyers, the descendants of European colonizers with lots of blood money, into another coffer of Earth and Life Destroyers, our political-economic elites. Environmentalism represents a settler-colonial cross-section of white skin privileged elites who have fallen in love with Nature Porn.

These rich tourists seek a natural wilderness park area with lots of cute wild animals – yet with no native hunting-gatherer societies. The elite travelers are also statist maniacs, who always bribe the most heinous and corrupt politicians – so they alone can use the lands for their nature travel. Those dishonest ideologues want the nature for themselves only as the true Euro-colonial masters – yet refuse to allow the other Euro-colonial parasites to use their reserved lands, such as cattle ranching, mining and natural gas industry.

What is Nature Porn? Nature Porn represents those majestic photographic Ansel Adams prints of high, domineering, mountain scape views or those massive views of land ranges with flowing rivers, distant peaks and exotic deserts, always filled with reserved stocks of wild animals. Another form of Nature Porn, popular about a hundred years ago, featured a few untainted native men and women overlooking a grand nature scenery. Most native cultures no longer exist there however – and for the nature lovers – good riddance! They now live confined on dismal reserves to die slow deaths – just like the hunted, wild animals, with less and less land to survive on as our World grows more sick by the day.

The lovers of this Nature Porn are all Europeans or Euro colonial-settlers with money – lots of money. These people can take off work when they want and travel. They have bank funds to explore and view the majestic sites of deep visions. Why deep visions?

Well, the high mountain top views give the money and technology lovers a sense of peace – a sense of wisdom – a tranquil sagacity about the world all centered about their own majestic egos.

Our modern travelers, and don’t ever refer to them as tourists, are truly in love with their own fabricated selves. But like all false, impermanent lovers of self, all is desire, craving, clinging, and yet always mixed up with petty hatreds, neglect, discarding, divorce and forgetting. Travel makes it all right again. I know this for a fact, since I was also one of those sainted, entitled fools.

Our modern travelers, tourists and nature lovers are also foodies, gourmets of the organic food palette – of which they all can afford, cool clothes-fashion sense – of which they can also pay for. Without the money and the privileges that come with travel, then all the fleeting delights of the bourgeois Euro colonial settler inheritance are for nothing. Environmentalism, like good, organic restaurant eating, affords special glimpses for the lucky ones.

Nature Porn with the best views allows them to believe that there is still a place for exploration, an untamed wilderness, a pristine location, an untouched vista, (with no modern industry in sight whatsoever), where Nature can breathe freely. And yes, our wealthy Euro colonial Conde Nast-Lonely Planet trekking travelers can finally enjoy those spectacular moments.

After the wild foray into the Nature wilderness parks, our traveler heroes can reenter gas guzzling vehicles, return to the authentic hostel-cheap hotel-motel-pension, and then savor the hundreds of selfie-landscape-fauna life photos from the expensive camera, image click collection. Such is the wonder of modern travel, exotic culinary delights and divine technological wonders.

Environmentalism takes the Nature mystical drug, the love of the land trope, to an even grander degree of devotion. The Environmentalist wants to save his or her majestic lands from overdevelopment. Yet these same people are actually living inside of homes and apartments, which have already squatted on the native inhabitants’ lands. They have already colonized, settled and gentrified a couple of hundred times over – but they have always had good intentions, as they like to say. They just don’t read much history.

The reasons are that these people have money and they can donate to Environmentalist NGOs, which will relay the funds to the political-economic elites who also enjoy Nature Porn. Yet, those same elites must always and constantly sell-out, due to the political hacks holding lots of balled up money in even more entangled investments.

The sordid list includes corporate mining, energy drilling-processing, massive agribusiness, real estate construction sprawl, chemical engineering plants and massive public works constructions, such as dams, wide highways and recreational areas. All of those job creating, works in progress, destroy the local environmental balance.

Environmentalism offers no solution to the crisis of the Earth because the human species has already destroyed the equilibrium forever, tamed and rounded up the frontier, killed the mystery of the Cosmos. There is no returning to that old, pristine state of the natives. The Euro colonial-settler March of Progress has for once and for all annihilated completely the fragile Earth balance.

The human reign on Earth is now moving towards its own bad death – and good riddance. The Dinosaurs had their time, and soon the apocalypse will arrive for us too. The Human Mind, or Condition under Civilization, is too diseased with ignorance, ideological delusions, ego-mania, desire and hate – and there is no hope – no turning around.

Don’t tell this truth to the Environmentalist cabal though. History means very little to them. According to the experts, we need to Save Planet Earth, Act Locally, Think Globally – Switch to Green-Renewable Energy Solutions. I used to believe those bumper sticker adages of pseudo-wisdom too. But then I stuck my head out the window, read a history book – and the terrible actuality of our existence was all plain to see.

Meanwhile, the most dishonest of political crooks keep concocting new taxes, charge and fine, enable nickel and diming schemes against the powerless citizens: carbon footprint taxes, gasoline emission taxes, environmental recovery taxes. Environmentalism’s ideological founders also have interesting histories.

It all started during a long walk, actually a very long walk, in the country. This strange man wore a long beard and large brimmed hat, carried his pack, tin cup, cooking pot, dried foods, wooden staff, extra pair of boots, clothes, tent with sleeping materials, writing materials and a few books – all on his back. Was he some type of ascetic prophet? He thought so. He was quite a good walker. He walked through the entire Appalachian range all the way south into Florida from Canada. He then walked toward the Pacific side, from the interior of California – trudging all the way up into Alaska! This was the late 1860s-70s. His name was John Muir.

He was America’s first Environmentalist Saint. He read Thoreau, Melville, Hawthorne, Whitman and Emerson, all of which changed his life. He also had to do the walk and commune with Nature. He was lucky in that he was able to view the American West before the final closing of the frontier, and the final extermination against the Lakota and the Ghost Dance in 1890. Muir was also a scientist, so he wanted to continue his own personal research related to North American Geology and Botany.

Muir did observe the wretched conditions of the California Indians – the few ones that were still alive during California’s final extermination campaigns. The dirty and rancid Indians ruined his Nature views – but they would soon have to live on the death bound reservations anyway. Muir kept plodding on. Ultimately he became America’s first advocate for Nature Conservation. He wrote a lot, and also started the first Environmentalist NGO, The Sierra Club.

Our Environmentalist Seer-Geological technocrat caught the attention of the political big wigs in the US Federal Government at the turn of the 20th century. He began to work with a Mr. Gifford Pinchot, the first head of the US Forest Service. Muir thought Basque sheep herding looked good in the California ranges, but Pinchot also wanted industries to set up their sites in the wild forests too.

The US Forest Service still adheres to this code. They legally own the forests, so they can rent them out to the highest bidder – allowing clear cuts of the old growth trees in the Cascade Mountain Range. The US Forest Service even has cop-paramilitary forces with high-powered rifles to defend such massive destruction!

Eventually, Muir also got the ear of the US President himself, Teddy Roosevelt. President Teddy Roosevelt established the US Park Service to protect certain National Park Monuments from potential industry-development mess ups, and so guys like Muir could enjoy the beautiful scenic views, such as Yosemite National Park in California.

President Teddy Roosevelt has the reputation as one of the great historical benefactors of American Environmentalism. What else was there about this Progressive? Like our Lefty progressives still lurking around today, he believed in unfettered capitalism – just without the industry trust corruption, and the man was a complete warmonger. He completely supported the invasion and mass murder of the Amerikan Empire in the Philippines. This issue didn’t bother Muir so much either – as long as he maintained his sacred nature preserves.

All the Anglo white colonial-settler states have their sacred nature spots. In South Africa, Kruger National Park: in Australia, Ayers Rock National Park; in Canada, Banff National Park; in New Zealand, Abel Tasman National Park. What about natives? Well, they can also enjoy the national parks – that is, if they have the money to pay the park fees to the State. If they would like their land back, then they would need to go through blocked government channels. For example, the US Park Service kicked the Ute Nation off their lands in southern Colorado, and created the infamous, Mesa Verde National Park.

This is the sacred story to our Modern Environmentalist Ideology. Environmentalism is a closed club for elite colonial-settler whites to enjoy nature preserves – all for the love of the land. Since all the land is now their land – natives damned! The European Conquest of the Earth was murderous – but such is the past. The National Park Service guards the nature and monuments – as long as you pay the entrance fees to the State! The Environmentalist NGOs will continue to hold the criminal state’s hands because the first Environmentalist, John Muir, did the same thing. He is even now, one of the patron saints of over-legislated California!

Our environmentalist Hollywood celebrities are not hypocrites either. Yes, they can whine about Global Warming – and still travel around in gas guzzling vehicles and private jets. And yes, most environmentalists, anti-war activists, and other well-meaning Green Left Activists – still use gas, electricity and other technological advances, inclusive of laptops – well because they feel more comfortable using such technology to get out the Green Economy Word. John Muir was again – the same way. One of Muir’s benefactors was the railroad capitalist magnate, E.H. Harriman.

Unless defending the last stand of freedom against a coming government attack, inclusive of all flora and fauna life, the Anarchist opts out of this Environmentalist, ideological-state influence charade.

European settler-colonialism has already cleared the table discarding their lopsided game a long, long time ago.
