James Lee: Environmentalist in a Hurry September 2, 2010

?The planet does not need humans.? This assertion, embedded in a manifesto published by the late James Lee, is a tidy summation of the biocentric worldview that inspires radical environmentalism.

Lee was killed by a SWAT team at the Maryland headquarters of the Discovery Channel, where he had taken hostages. He demanded that the network promote his view that ?filthy human children? not only contribute to pollution, but that they ?are pollution."

Lee, who claims that he was ?awakened? by Al Gore?s agitprop documentary ?An Inconvenient Truth,? littered his rambling manifesto with references to Darwin and Malthus and novelist Daniel Quinn, whose ?Ishmael? books depict a series of dialogues between a man and a wise and sympathetic gorilla, including what are described as ?provocative? re-writings of the creation accounts from Genesis.

The logic of radical environmentalism dictates that humans should vanish in order to save the planet. Whether through conviction or dementia, Lee was eager to put that principle into action.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
