Is Environmentalism the New State Run Religion?


Religion has always been used to control the masses. In the United States their is a separation of religion from government. What if the government decides it is important to have more control of the population? What would be the best way to achieve these ends? Creating an issue that will move peoples emotions like a religion without any of the Dogma. Environmentalism fits the bill perfectly since saving the planet could only be a good thing. Unless the movement has been created simply to apply controls over Humanity.

Seperation of Church and State


It is very confusing that the same people who disavow god and religion are the same people worshipping the earth.

I am not trying to say that doing what we can to clean and maintain our planet is a bad thing. I think we should all be concious of the effects of our actions

. The issue I am having is that the environmental issue is turning into not only a religion but a state sponsered one at that. If anyone dares to criticize the movement they are ostricized not only by the public but in many ways by government itself.

Having earth day celebrations to me is the same as having a Christmas, Easter or any other religious holiday EXCEPT that earth day propaganda is allowed in our schools in our offices of government and many other places that conventional religion dare not go.

It is taught in our schools not only indoctrinating the children into the new religion but teaching them that it is their responsibility to inform authorities if they see violations of the religious code including informing on parents and family members.

You are absolutely right, environmentalism is becoming a sort of religion, your either 'believe' in it or you don't, rather than you agree or disagree with the science behind this movement.

And this movement, in my opinion, is ultimately about more control of us, and perhaps even more about monetizing the science/belief to create wealth for people like Al Gore, it's not about the well-being of the population and the planet.
