I spent Earth Day in Philadelphia the birthplace of the American constitutional republic, created after after much blood, sweat and tears was shed in the quest for political and personal liberty.
As I note in the linked radio interview I conducted from my hotel room, being in Philadelphia on Earth Day seemed perverse in a way since Earth Day falls on Vladimir Lenin’s birthday and the environmental radicals who push the celebration of the earth as sacred the are, not coincidentally, at the forefront of efforts to undermine the very freedoms meant to be ensured at America’s founding. They would have American’s forfeit their freedom (or in lieu of voluntarily giving it up, have it forcibly taken from them) in service to some ideal they’ve dreamed up of the pristine earth. They would replace freedom of religion with the enforced worship at the green shrine of mother nature.
I’ll choose freedom, thank you!
