White House Science Czar Says He’d Use ‘Free Market’ to ‘De-Develop the United States’
Breitbart.tv ^ | 9/16/2010 | Breitbart

Posted on 09/16/2010 3:26:31 PM PDT by wheresmyusa

From CNS News: In a video interview this week, White House Office of Science and Technology Director John P. Holdren told CNSNews.com that he would use the “free market economy” to implement the “massive campaign” he advocated along with Population Bomb author Paul Ehrlich to “de-develop the United States.”

In his role as President Barack Obama’s top science and technology adviser, Holdren deals with issues ranging from global warming to health care.

“A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States,” Holdren wrote along with Paul and Anne H. Ehrlich in the “recommendations” concluding their 1973 book Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions.

Dems sure do love creating unemployment to expand the ever increasing underclass of people who are totally dependent on the government.

Holdren’s an insane communist eco-wacko radical. What’s new? He shouldn’t be within 1000 miles of a lever of power.

The good news here is that nobody in the White House knows anything about free markets.

How can anything centrally planned be using the "free market"?

If there was a centrally planned effort to increase productivity and competitiveness it definitely would not be a free market endeavor.

Oh wait a minute. They've tried that before and it only ended up being a way to funnel money from taxpayers to lobbyists.

Several decades ago, he'd never risen above the level of San Francisco City Parks Commissioner.

De-industrialize.

De-urbanize.

De-develop.

De-populate.

Destroy.

What I don't get, is why people don't react to this, even when America's enemies lay their agenda right out on the table.

“What is their utopia”

Legions of unemployed masses subservient to a benevolent government. Sounds like the Depression back in the 1930’s when the government alphabet agencies ran everything!

“What I don’t get, is why people don’t react to this”

The populace is totally dumbed down by a failed education system and is misled by a politically biased media. Just give them bread and circuses and they’ll stay quiet.

Several years ago there was a plan floated by environmentalists to have national forest corridors from Canada to Mexico with human access severly restricted.

Human populations were to be closed up in “island” cities among a country returned to pre-columbian conditions.

I think it was called The Wilds Project.

De-develop also includes depopulation (See Paul Ehrlich)... guess who these folks would choose to depopulate first...

And they called Palin's considers about Death Panels and Trig..."Crazy"

Contemporary satellite image of New York:

How these visionaries imagine the city in 2049:

This is from the book Manahatta by Eric W. Sanderson. In this vision of the future several areas will be reserved for high rises in the city including downtown Manhattan, Brooklyn Heights and Long Island City.

Sanderson foresees most of Long Island, Staten Island, Brooklyn and all of Jersey City will become farmland again.

He never explains where all the people have gone.

It's still very active -- just out of the headlines. Don't want to get the "Folks" stirred up too much...

Ted Turner is one of the leading lights. He's the largest private land owner in the U.S. and is raising buffalo, prairie dogs, ferrets, wolves, etc. to run farmers and ranchers off their private land.

John P. Holdren, Paul R. and Anne H. Ehrlich, Al Gore, David Foreman of Earth First, and several other prominent eco-nuts, should be left on a desert island, provided with just enough water and food to live on, and told that if they want more, one of their number gets less.

And if they inflict the rationing on themselves that they would inflict on the rest of us, they will survive. But if they are greedy, then some of their number will starve to death.

Then televise, as these petty, greedy souls murder each other, just so that they can have extra water and food. Because in their twisted souls, enough is never enough.

Why make it farmland? High-rise farms have greater potential economies of scale? Or community gardens on all blighted and delapidated buildings cleared away, which has a communitarian feel while making use of currently unemployed?
