The observance of the so-called "Earth day" is mistaken

Why am I opposed?

I have come to the conclusion that the stagnation of Western Civilization has come at the hands of an enemy, who has implanted distrust of its innovative capabilities.

This innovation has led to material advances and a high standard of living.  On the other hand, the so-called environmentalists teach that this high standard of living is "destroying" the Earth.  As a consequence, any of the bad things that can occur from technology is hyped to be inherently evil, and no solutions can, nor should be attempted.  This is said to be because technology cannot heal itself.  An overly suspicious attitude is taken of technology and an over romantizied view of nature is adopted instead.  Indeed, love of nature takes on an almost religious overtone.

Consequently, we have "Earth Day".  Since this has been observed, the GDP of America in terms of Gold per Capita has been stagnant.  Of recent years, economic growth itself has almost ceased.  There is this feeling of "malaise" that President Carter once discussed in a speech.  The malaise is no accident.

If you want to get to the root of the problem in Western Civilization, this has to be an important component of it.  Earth Day should not be observed.  It has been adopted by those who do not have the best interests of America at heart.
