Libertarianism – The Enemy of all Non-Human Life on Earth

As several posts on Occidental Dissent make clear, libertarianism (and its mainstream congener, neoliberalism) is utterly incompatible with the preservation of any non-human and non-domesticated or non-utilitarian life forms. Libertarians like to throw up weird scenarios whereby preserving wildlife, wild spaces and wild places would somehow be more economically viable than exterminating them, exploiting them, and devastating them.
The problem is that this never works out in praxis. Even when we environmentalists produce reports showing that preserving forests and meadows is worth way more than chopping them down or ruining them with cattle, 100% of libertarians always line up with exploiters. I’ve been reading them forever. Libertarian environmentalist is an oxymoron.
Since neoliberalism is just libertarianism, neoliberalism also can never support environmentalism. Market-driven environmental policies must be some kind of a cruel joke. They can never work. In strict economically rational terms, it is either never or almost never economically rational to save species, habitats or places. Destruction and extermination is where the money is, and in neoliberal theory, maximum return is the only variable we are allowed to consider.
Libertardarians now argue that humans (I guess maybe those of White European stock) now care enough about environmentalism that we can zero out government, privatize everything, and everything will still be hunky dory for the bighorns, the spotted owls and timber wolves. Yeah right.
In the first place, this would only work with White people, because only Whites can be environmentalists at the moment, and only more advanced Whites in North America and Europe need apply even here. That’s because Whites in Latin America and Russia have proven to be utterly capable of taking care of the environment. Native Americans and Siberians can probably preserve things too, but they don’t run any states.
Let’s test out the libertarian theory on most liberal-minded of the more progressive Whites on Earth, the ultra-liberals in California (though not a White state anymore, nevertheless, California is one of the most pro-environmental states in the nation).
The argument that humans now care enough about species to preserve them is proven wrong here in the West. Even here in ultra-liberal California, the glorious salmon are nearly extinct. The striped bass fishery in the Delta and Bay has also been ruined. The vast herds of Tule Elk that roamed all over the valleys and coastal areas of our state have been decimated and only exist on miniscule preserves that look like petting zoos. Fishers and spotted owls are being driven extinct by the timber industry as we speak.
A lot of CA endangered species are not real celebrities, but salmon would seem to have quite a bit of worth. Yet the salmon fishery in CA and up and down the West has been decimated. And even the ultra-liberal CA senators like Dianne Feinstein insist that we have not creamed the salmon enough, and need to take them out once and for all now. Feinstein’s mostly doing this for one of her rich Jewish buddies, Stewart Resnick of Beverly Hills. So much for liberal US Jews!
The notion that humans (Anywhere!) now value wildlife enough to be trusted with preserving them in a libertarian society is seriously wrong, and we can prove it right here in California.
In the 3rd World, humans are so bestial, venal, animalistic and backwards that they indeed are well on the way to extrerminating everything non-human, non-domesticated and non-utilitarian in sight.
An excellent argument in favor of White superiority (which I agree with) is, as I noted above, that Whites are really the only humans on Earth (who run states) that care about non-human life enough to preserve it.* Virtually every other race and ethnic group of man will gladly exterminate every single non-domesticated species and non-utilitarian species in its land at the drop of a hat.
Preserving species is something only Whites can do. And it’s something that only White governments can do, the White private sector haven proven endlessly to have failed at this endeavor.
*I honestly wish that non-European states were capable of not exterminating everything in sight, but I doubt it. The Middle East is an environmental catastrophe. The only environmentally decent place is Israel, but that’s populated by White people. The only environmentally progressive place in Latin America is Costa Rica, but once again, that’s a White country. It seems that all Arabs and mestizos can do is destroy.
Asians seem like a nightmare in environmental terms. They aren’t even capable of tender feelings towards cats and dogs, which they massacre for sport and food, so how can they possibly be trusted with non-domesticated things. The Japanese have been some of the worst scofflaws in international fishing and their bestial exploits in whaling have earned them the scorn of the planet.
True, in some ways, Koreans and Japanese seem to want to preserve what’s left on their lands, but environmentally, those places are pretty much human-nuked anyway, mostly by overpopulation. A preservationist impulse isn’t worth much if there is nothing left to preserve.
The hunter-gatherers of Southeast Asia never had the caretaker mindset of American Indians, instead opting for the more primitive mindset of “kill everything that moves.” The extinction process in SE Asia is very advanced and the state does very little to stop it. Environmental consciousness is extremely low.
Probably Vietnam is one of the more standout states. China is just now starting to develop an environmental ethic, but it doesn’t seem to be very advanced, and in a lot of ways, environmentally, China looks like America 1890.
I’m amazed that anything non-human and non-bovine is still walking around in India, where the extinction process is quite advanced, the state is extremely weak, and poachers are everywhere.
Russians have always been some of the most backwards and barbaric of the Whites, and environmentally, that’s still the case. Since the collapse of the USSR things have really fallen badly apart. Market hunters and poachers stalk the land. In Siberia, the poacher harvest of salmon is the same size as the legal harvest. The Amur Leopard and the Siberian Tiger are hanging on by their bare claws, and I expect them to go extinct soon.
Africa has to be one of the worst places on Earth to be a species of wildlife. Africans are primitive people, and primitives tend to kill anything that moves, usually for food. The only reason that there were still huge wildlife populations 50 years ago is due to White colonists, who forbade the Africans from wiping out the animals. With decolonization, Africans quickly set work slaughtering anything that moved.
That they had not done so in centuries past was due only to the crudity of their weapons. You can’t kill many animals with a spear. In 1965, Africans with firearms were a threat the animal population of the continent. The large megafauna were only saved when the former White colonists were called back in by concerned Africans to save the animals.
Many of the large animal populations still exist, but poachers and bush meat hunters take a devastating toll. I don’t see anything positive in the future. Africans don’t seem to be capable of not exterminating animals.
One argument is that non-Whites do these things because they are poor.
Equatorial Guinea now has a PCI of $21,000/year. Anyone seen any nice environmental initiatives coming out of there? Has the wealth of the Japanese prevented them from killing whales? Has Korean wealth prevented them from waging mass pogroms against dogs and cats? Has the relative wealth of Brazil and Argentina prevented environmental devastation in these places? The Gulf Arab countries are extremely wealthy, but my understanding is that they are environmental wrecks.
So much for the “they do it because they are poor” line.

      1. These people seem to operate under the notion that our tiny Earth has infinite resources. It is a shame that none could be bothered to speak with any of the Apollo astronauts. Many were pretty conservatives guys, but seeing how small Earth actually is, from another planetary body, against the vastness of emptiness that is space, it virtually changed all of them.

        1. They operate under the notion that they don’t want to be inconvenienced or forced to think about their personal choices for any reason whatsoever. Or maybe I’m thinking of Americans.

        2. Yes, Matt describes the American mindset very well. I am thinking White middle class and up, but it seems like once non-Whites get a little money, they get like this very quickly too.

        3. Robert, it’s definitely not (only) a white thing, although I almost did specify white Americans. But one look at all the BAPs in my area crushing anything that doesn’t get out of the way fast enough under the wheels of their gleaming Cadillac Escalades is enough to disabuse one of that notion.

  1. I think your post about the perverted justice stuff was 150% spot on, but don’t think I agree so much with this one today.
    “Equatorial Guinea now has a PCI of $21,000/year. Anyone seen any nice environmental initiatives coming out of there?”
    That’s simplistic. I’ve read enough of your articles to know your capable of way deeper analysis than that. Look at this:
    It’s really hard to get accurate income figures from countries that are as horrifically corrupt as EG since they cook the numbers to work for whatever prevailing party’s advantage. Plus I doubt that average income is a true average. Like most African resource states, I’m assuming wealth is distributing extremely poorly. It ranks pretty low on the human development index. I’d say if you want to make any associations with environmentalism, don’t look at GDP per se, look at the human development index. If people don’t care about people, they sure aren’t going to care about animals. Environmentalism is also a very long term outlook. It means changing our lifestyles today when the results may not even occur in our lifetime. It takes a certain level of material/social comfort to worry about such things. In poor countries, they’re worried about what they’re going to eat next week. What the ice caps are going to look like in a hundred years is pretty low on their list of priorities. Which is why Europeans hate DDT while Africans still want to use it. It may have long term health effects, but those aren’t as bad as the short term health effects of starvation! Oh, and of course there are African nations that preserve their wildlife. Gabon is pretty good at doing this, as are the nations in the central plains. Gabon is even being called “The African Costa Rica”.
    Oh and speaking of Costa Rica, I don’t think the preservationist ethnic there has anything to do with the whites, probably has more to do with the fact that their country gets so much money from tourism by eco-travelers. Probably the same reason people in the African plains countries want to preserve their game.
    “Has the wealth of the Japanese prevented them from killing whales?”
    Maybe not that, but then they aren’t driving around in big gas guzzling vehicles like us in the U.S. while we point fingers at those who kill whales. Compare the environmental footprint per capita of a Japanese to that of an American and we have little room to talk.
    “Has Korean wealth prevented them from waging mass pogroms against dogs and cats?”
    Well, they eat them, which is fine by the rules of their culture. Why is that any different than our pogram against pigs and chickens?
    “Has the relative wealth of Brazil and Argentina prevented environmental devastation in these places?”
    I’m not aware of what you’re referring to in Argentina, but as for Brazil, their big problem is slash and burn agriculture by poor subsistence farmers. So it still is a problem of wealth. We in the west are partly to blame for that. I mean Oprah can have a show about the miracle health wonders of Acai berries, and you can guarantee that tomorrow a bunch of Brazilian forest will be clearcut so people can plant Acai and feed the western demand for this trendy juice drink.
    “The Gulf Arab countries are extremely wealthy, but my understanding is that they are environmental wrecks.”
    Didn’t know there was much environment to preserve. The place looks like one big sandbox to me. Have you ever seen footage of the Iraqi countryside? Probably the ugliest, bleakest place on the planet. Plus, I think like the African oil states, that oil wealth is not fairly distributed. You have a lot of poverty, ignorance and unemployment in the Arab world, and probably believe Allah will fix the planet one day so don’t worry about it.

  2. Robert,
    I agree with a lot of what you say here, but I think you’re misinformed on some points.
    A lot of the info out there on Japanese whaling is sensationalistic propaganda and downright lies. The Japanese have hunted the minke whales sustainably:
    Some of the big whale activists, such as the famous “Sea Shepherd” people that have their own TV show on Animal Planet called “Whale Wars” about going after Japanese whalers, have been known to lie and spread misinformation:
    Also, re the Koreans, they don’t eat cats. And they don’t massacre dogs for sport or wage pogroms against them. They do eat dogs, though it isn’t a regular thing but a rare dish that some men eat.

  3. I feel these environmentalists, the real terrorists and enemies of all human beings would be exposed before they forces human to cut their throats in order to save some flies.
    Man, or no man, life forms will keep on the cycle of evolution and extinction.

  4. White people are so barbaric with their pogroms agains chicken and cow.
    Then again, they nuked the japanese, so they deserve death.

  5. Maybe the better reason as to why whites percentage wise (though I’m not sure how percentage would be quantified beyond mere observation) is that whites have mainly been the ones in charge, globally, to make these decisions. Even so, environmentally, whites have been at Civil War ever since the days of TR and the Robber Barons. The Enviro-whites are losing this war now. The oil spill and subsequent off shore drilling approved policies are a strong sign of this. The US doesn’t lead on this issue anymore, generally. Usually at the G8 summit we’re an embarrassment, making it clear we’re too business greedy and short-sighted to cooperate with other governments who are more eager to address these problems that we face.

    1. It makes me so sick. Most of the other races are nightmares on the environment. They’re just out to kill everything that moves or grows and destroy everything in sight. Whites have been leading the way on environmentalism at least since the 1960’s. Now US Whites make me sick. They’re turning into 3rd World types on this issue and they’re reverting back to being the killer and destroyers that we have been for most of our time on this continent.

  6. You know who killed the spotted owl? You know who raced to chop down every tree in forest? You know who exported all the logs in a mad race to denude the Northwest of every scrap of timber?
    The Jews that’s who. Remember the 80’s Jewish hostile takeovers? One of them was they bought out the biggest timber owner in the Northwest. A responsible company that used scientific harvesting to make sure a continuous harvesting would keep the forest healthy. They also sold a lot to local mills to turn the forest into useful products for the fine people of the United States. But then the evil Jews , Drexel and their Jewish client Charles Hurwitz bought the forest and destroyed it. They shipped as much raw logs out of the US as possible. Closing mills and throwing people out of work. You know what they did recently? After all this destruction they still can’t pay back the money they borrowed to debtutize the whole operation so they got the government to PAY THEM! Evil. Evil. Evil.
    And look at the first comment and others lower down about Charles Hurwitz in this post on Jewish swindlers.
