April 22 is the annual celebration of “Earth Day,” which has been celebrated since 1970, as a way the organisers believe would help be aware of “saving planet earth”. But the sinister goals of the organisers of Earth Day are intentionally hidden around the centennial of the birth of Soviet dictator Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, known to the world as Lenin, and the philosophies of the Soviet Union that failed when Ronald Reagan successfully choked the CCCP into submission in 1991.
Sadly, children in schools today are taught to glorify the ideas of Lenin and not that of Washington, Adams, Jefferson, or Madison today.
The major teachings of Lenin that embodies the spirit of Earth Day mainly consist of government control of everything – and that includes property. By denying people the right to private property, the government can control what they can and cannot do. Such philosophy is adhered by environmentalists and the policies established against drilling for coal (the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument was established by the Clinton administration as a payoff to Chinese interests, banning resourceful Utah coal from being drilled), oil (witness their winning battle against drilling in ANWR), cutting forests to prevent forest fires caused by ignition of waste, and other crucial activities, as these policies established by the government are part of the idea that the government, not the people, control the land.
Environmental policies have created things such as the ban on DDT that has harmed developing countries, a ban on lightbulbs that do not contain mercury, as they “waste” energy, and now even banning mid-size to large cars, including banning the sport-utility vehicle, which are being replaced by small cars that “save energy” but have no safety.
People should remember today that “Earth Day” is the liberals' attempt to celebrate the idea of total government control, and that is something embraced through Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth lie, and also the “greenie weenie” policies of the 2007 Energy Act, and the land grabs frequently embraced by liberals to restrict the rights of people with their private property, in an attempt to have government control everything, similar to to the philosophy of Lenin, of whose birthday they celebrate today.
