Posted on 09/19/2011 9:45:16 AM PDT by RushIsMyTeddyBear
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 Obamas 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.

Hell in a handbasket.
We're still suffering greatly from the aftermath of the Clintooon years, and now we'll have to basically upturn our society to repair the damage from the two grifters living in our White House. My God, we're in trouble.
Not even Peanuthead Carter was this bad.
OK, Mr. Holdren, send me a picture of your log cabin sans electric service, your bicycle you use for your primary mode of transportation, provide proof you have no cell phone, do not fly in any air craft, have no investments in any industrial companies, and then we can talk.
Thanks or posting this. I think. We are going to have to de-develop everything this bunch of America haters has done.
It is amazing how the enemies of the United States and our civilization can speak so openly now of their goals, whether they be Islamic Jihadis in our midst, Marxists or proto-Nazis.
And even worse, many of these people are in our Government or maintained by the Government.
All 5.5 billion people can be stood up with a square yard of space in the Grand Canyon. Give everyone a house with maybe 4 or 5 to the house, and you couldn't fill up Texas.
To recycle Erlich is incredibly scary since the fool was shown to be an idiot back 20 or 30 years ago.
Is there no end to the radical communists in this illegal administration?
They usually aren't this open with their agenda. But in a nutshell, this is why the left fights domestic energy development, because expensive energy is their lever towards "de-development" - if commutes by car become unaffordable, people will have to move back into the cities, and the exurbs can then be bulldozed.
So to all of the liberals that have moved out into the suburbs from the city, take note - your political fellow-travellers on the far left want to send you right back from where you came.
If you tried to de-develop a neighboring country, it would be called a war. In this case, the illegal czar is at war with us. Where is the Justice Department... oh, wait... never mind.
Seems everything already going to play Mr. "Science" Czar. Does anyone see the irony in his stated goal? By a science czar?
Yes Holdren and a lot of the czars are a bunch of sickies. We need a day of reckoning for them in the not to near future.
When the government attempts to control nearly every aspect of the economy, it is anything but free nor does it resemble authentic capitalism.
Holdren is a Neo-Eco-Luddite Collectivist Hypocrite piece of Inhuman Trash.
Think that sums him up quite nicely.
And how, exactly, would this help the poor and others in need? What about the Children? The elderly?
Obviously, the obama Regime hates the poor, children and the elderly, the most defenseless among us.
The first thing we need to do is “de-develop” them with extreme prejudice.
“OK, Mr. Holdren, send me a picture of your log cabin sans electric service, your bicycle you use for your primary mode of transportation, provide proof you have no cell phone, do not fly in any air craft, have no investments in any industrial companies, and then we can talk.”
I second that.
People like Holdren believe that families who own single-family homes are using "more than their fair share" of the surface footprint, and would prefer to see many families stacked into the same square footage.
These Leftist atheists and DESTROYING AMerica!! Obama MUST be defeated!!!
These Leftist atheists and DESTROYING AMerica!! Obama MUST be defeated!!!
Yep. Agenda 21.
Holdren is doctor Floyd Ferris. He hates humanity and wishes people to return to the hand-plow. And like the Nazis, he would sanction mass extermination for “greater good”.
If we didn’t know before, now it has become painfully obvious that Obama’s agenda has always been to destroy the American economy, and the American way of life. After all, this Czar wrote this in 1973!!!
Science and technology be used to DE-DEVELOP the United States???!!!
WTF Win the Future-—NOT
The whole regime has played out like a prequel to ‘Atlas Shrugged’.
Wouldn’t be surprised if Obama’s attacks on Producers drives many of them to effectively ‘go Gault’ (relocate themselves and possibly businesses to less antagonistic soil).
If he could get a truly “Free market” to De-develop I say
go for it.
All he would need to do is have a large majority of the population agree with him. It also cause a need to put a stop to all immigration. Only a developed country can take in large amounts of unskilled people. Most government social programs would need to stop. The less development you have the less income you have above what you need to live on. We could all live in fly over country. Work in the fields in the hot sun all day.
Maybe he hasn’t thought this though thoroughly. I though think many liberal would like it in flyover country.
30 million....yep folks that’s how many people they, the Democrats, want in the world. We have what, 300 million in this country. What do they want to do with the other 270 million people in this country? “Naw....that can’t be....they don’t really want to kill 270 million people in the US.” No, THEY don’t want to kill 270 million Americans...they want doctors and abortionists and federal law enforcement to do it. They also think that freezing people and starving them is a quite humane way of euthanizing our population. That’s why they don’t want an armed citizenry. Yes, they really are that stupid and cruel.
If you de-develop you will have less machinery and fertilizer, so you will need many more acres of land to produce the same amount of food. A lot of the less productive former farmland which has been allowed to return to the wild will have to be cleared and plowed (horse or oxen only) again.
There is a Grand Canyon in America’s Southwest, into which these elitists are free to march, and lead this “depopulation” by example.
Yep. Here’s a good example:
If this isn't a huge issue for the Republican nominee to run on, I don't know what else is. It addresses everything from their job-killing bills, to stated re-distribution of income, to stated lowering our stand-of-living, to reducing our military power and on and on.
Traditional Values OF Freedom To Guide Your Own Destiny; or Socialist Control Of Your Life From Cradle to Grave.
By “free market” he means tax the Hell out of anything he doesn’t like.
“Not even Peanuthead Carter was this bad.”
Agreed, because he wasn’t DELIBERATELY trying to destroy this country.
Just what is this idiot "Czar" proposing to do to America and it's people?
There are some traitors that ought to be strung up with natural fiber rope.
I’m sure most Americans would “love” to go back to living like their grandparents and great grandparents did 100 years ago. Few people had cars, electric appliances beyond light bulbs were minimal, people mowed their yards with push mowers and walked to work... just ideal for the eco-concious. However life expectancy was about 60, but that’s OK as there won’t be such a burden on the healthcare system and Social Security.
They make it sound like he's really really important.
Where do I get my job like this.....?
.....Answer to nobody
.....Stupidity is no hindrance
