(3) A Modern Aztec Sacrifice: Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, who has lost his childhood
The above paragraph is taken from the start of a penetrating article by Rachelle Peterson called 'How Radicals Hijacked Environmentalism'. She goes on to note:
'The new cult of Aztec sustainability was on display at the People’s Climate March of September 21, where a contingent of would-be Aztecs drummed and danced their way down Sixth Avenue with a float decorated with sculpted human skulls.'
'Sustainability', she further notes, is now 'a big tent that shelters social and political agendas along with environmental ones. Social justice, managed economies, fair trade, gender neutrality, and racial diversity are just a few of the other movements that find ideological homes under the banner of “sustainability.” Anti-colonialism is only the latest to join these ranks.'
She concludes with a caution:
'Perhaps the real “colonialism” that activists should eye is sustainability itself. The broader the sustainability movement becomes, the more aggressive it becomes in shoehorning parallel social movements into its mold. In that sense, the Aztec imagery is apt. The Aztecs were one of the New World’s most successful imperial powers and succeeded in dominating all the native peoples of central Mexico for a time. Strangely enough, however, they proved unsustainable. Their other indigenous peoples of Mexico jumped at the chance presented by the arrival of a small contingent of well-armed Europeans to put an end to the Aztec empire. Xiuhtezcatl might at some point take some time out from his advocacy work to study some history.'

(4) 'Sustainable Development' = 'Suppressed Development'
The list of harms caused by self-styled 'environmentalists' or 'radicals' or would-be 'guardians' is very large. Here is a listing of what may only be part of it: 'The Legacy of the Environmental Movement'. Here are the sub-headings at that location:
'Prolonged Psychological Fear Based on Unfounded/Distorted Claims'
'Needless Death of over 30 Million Innocent Young Children'
'Loss of a Dependable Electrical Infrastructure'
'Dependency on Foreign Oil and Higher Fuel Prices'
'The Agents of Fear'
'Development of the "Precautionary Principle" into a Fear Distortion Tool'
'Taking of Property without Just Compensation (Private Lands)'
'Endangered Species Act'
'Tying National Security Up in Knots'
'Eliminating or Weakening Flood Prevention Systems (Dams, Levies)'
'Depriving Workers of Their Livelihood'
'The Law of Unintended Consequences'
'The Destruction of Credible Science by Promoting Junk Science'
'The Destruction of Scientist who disagree with the Environmental Agenda'
'Promoting a Small Utopian World for the Elite through a Population Control Agenda (Isn't this called Genocide?)'
'Sponsor of Terrorism in the Name of the Environment'
'School Indoctrination: Driving Fear into the Hearts of Our Children'
So much harm. So much enthusiasm for harm. Superstition can do that. They call it 'Settled Science' in our time. It leads to great sacrifice, and great waste. Not least of our children.
