Ecology Viewed from the Right

[…]for the Left ecofascism is best defined as “anything in the environmental movement that makes us uncomfortable.” This holds true whether or not the accused actually supports authoritarianism, corporatism, nationalism, or any other hallmarks of historical Fascism.

Some unfashionable ideas that the Left associates with ecofascism include:

Any focus on stabilizing human population growth in the Third World;

Any suggestion that immigration and open borders have negative environmental effects;

Any criticism of the human race in terms of its ecological impact […] [specifically about third world pollution/criminality]

Any condemnation of individualism, democracy, or liberalism for their inability to resolve key environmental issues; and

Any suggestion that there is a natural order or hierarchy which mankind ought to model itself upon and respect.[…]

People are the disease.” “This isn’t an apocalypse. It’s an awakening.” “The earth is cleansing herself.” “The human race is so shitty that when we’re absent, the world begins to thrive…
