James Jay Lee’s Manifesto to Save the Planet

James Jay Lee originally posted this at www.savetheplanetprotest.com but it seems the site is down. I am posting it here in full for posterity’s sake.

The Discovery Channel MUST broadcast to the world their commitment to save the planet and to do the following IMMEDIATELY:
1. The Discovery Channel and it’s affiliate channels MUST have daily television programs at prime time slots based on Daniel Quinn’s “My Ishmael” pages 207-212 where solutions to save the planet would be done in the same way as the Industrial Revolution was done, by people building on each other’s inventive ideas. Focus must be given on how people can live WITHOUT giving birth to more filthy human children since those new additions continue pollution and are pollution. A game show format contest would be in order. Perhaps also forums of leading scientists who understand and agree with the Malthus-Darwin science and the problem of human overpopulation. Do both. Do all until something WORKS and the natural world starts improving and human civilization building STOP

Bubblegum and Suckers a short children’s story for adults

Bubblegum and Suckers

A Children’s Book for Adults

(Illustrations to come?)

I originally wrote this almost a full year ago but it seems to remain relevant and even though the ‘Father’ alluded to in the last paragraphs is drawing closer (ie, the last election), it is my view that he has not yet quite arrived.

Bubblegum and suckers, fudge and cookies for all! This among other things was their rallying cry and no one can cry louder than seven and eight year olds deprived of supper and sleep. A sleepy populace heeded their call and thought that a little youthful vigor might be just what the country needed. A fresh wind to blow on stale and intractable issues was needed and every other sort had been tried: but not children. Not, that is, until now.

Do your part for the economy: have fewer kids, abort if necessary

This connection between the economy and children is one that is not often aired in public, however. The reasoning follows inevitably from the view that humans decide when life begins and when life is valued and when ‘quality of life’ is believed to be one of the chief criteria in the equation. And when you don’t believe in God and believe that the only important things in life are those already alive, as best managed by the omnipotent and omnipresent and omnibenevolent State, the primary ‘life’ you are worried about is our own. In other words, having too many people around diminishes your own quality of life. So if you can get rid of them, you should. Why not? You only answer to yourself. And if the others can’t defend themselves? All the better.

Is more government the solution to government made problems?

I expect any honest person investigating the current economic mess will already know that the current crisis is due to government entangling with the mortgage industry.  I expect that any objective onlooker won’t try to pin this on President Bush.  Not solely, anyway.   My feeling as I watch what is going on is basically this:  […]

The Economy and the Christian- reflections on a limited government and the Church and abortion

I haven’t posted much on the current economic crisis.  A friend asked me what I thought.  I told him that I was unconcerned about the ‘cost’ to the taxpayers since the truth is that the government will just be printing the money anyway… the dirty little secret is that the government hasn’t needed taxpayer dollars […]
