“The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.”
I see the third main threat to individual freedom in environmentalism. To be specific, I do understand the concerns about eventual environmental degradation, but I also see a problem in environmentalism as an ideology.
Environmentalism only pretends to deal with environmental protection. Behind their people- and nature-friendly terminology, the adherents of environmentalism make ambitious attempts to radically reorganize and change the world, human society, our behavior, and our values.
There is no doubt that it is our duty to rationally protect nature for future generations. The followers of the environmentalist ideology, however, keep presenting us with various catastrophic scenarios with the intention of persuading us to implement their ideas. That is not only unfair but also extremely dangerous. Even more dangerous, in my view, is the quasi-scientific guise that their oft-refuted forecasts have taken on.
Since the wheels have fallen off the global warming / climate change hoax, and the environmentalists are not going away, what is the next eco-fad catastrophe that can only be solved by limiting our freedoms and further trashing our economy?
According to the UN Rio+20 objectives outline, the upcoming conference will be all about wealth transfer… Sorry… Sustainability.
The objective of the Conference is to secure renewed political commitment for sustainable development, assess the progress to date and the remaining gaps in the implementation of the outcomes of the major summits on sustainable development, and address new and emerging challenges
The Conference will focus on two themes: (a) a green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication; and (b) the institutional framework for sustainable development.
Rio+20 Issues Briefs
The UNCSD Secretariat together with its partners has prepared a series of Rio+20Issues Briefs. The purpose of the Rio+20 Issues Briefs is to provide a channel for policymakers and other interested stakeholders to discuss and review issues relevant to the objective and themes of the conference, including a green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication, as well as the institutional framework for sustainable development.
Prepare for an onslaught of stories and propaganda urging you to use less and do less because we all have to worry “sustainability.”

Vladimir Lenin must be kicking himself (while dodging flaming pitchforks) asking “why didn’t I think of this?”
