According to a quote attributed to Joseph Goebbels, the Reich Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany, "if you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." Over the past few years, we have learned not just of a few, but of hundreds of big lies that have been told to the public, particularly by media, by governments, and even by the scientific community.
I submit to you that one of the largest lies that millions still believe, is the premise that humans are a cancer upon the Earth and that human life is not, in fact, precious. At its core, this belief comes not from humans, but from the demonic realm. It is rooted in jealousy from beings that do not have the same connection to the Spiritual realm that humans do. These beings are driven to do everything they can do to pervert and destroy mankind, but they do not have the power to do so directly, and so they work to convince humans to carry out their bidding. They tirelessly promote destructive behaviors that ultimately result in human misery and sacrifice. These lies take many subtle forms, but all strive for the same result.
We are told repeatedly that carbon dioxide (CO2), which is one of the key building blocks of life and essential to all plant life upon which humans utterly depend, is a poison upon the Earth. At its heart, this is a war upon "fossil fuels" and in fact any technology that fuels human productivity and innovation. If allowed to permeate society, this destructive belief system will starve and ultimately kill millions of humans, unable to afford food or even heat their homes, as we are currently seeing in Europe and elsewhere across the globe. Fortunately, the premise that CO2 is an existential threat to the Earth is demonstrably absurd on its face. CO2 levels have been dramatically higher than today in Earth's past and were higher than today even as recently as 7,000 years ago. CO2 levels ebb and flow on the Earth, driven by myriad factors such as volcanoes, ocean currents, animal activity, and even the weathering of rocks that contain carbon. Human activity has only a small impact on CO2 levels. Earth's systems ultimately mitigate and balance these levels naturally, regardless of human activity. One of the most dramatic observable reactions to these levels is the dramatic increase in plant life upon the Earth that we have observed over the past few decades - an increase of as much as 15%. This increased greening is taking back arid land that was once unproductive and useless and converting it to habitable, productive land that can grow food and provide numerous other benefits to humans and the Earth, including increased oxygenation of the atmosphere. This increased greening of the planet is also resulting in a strong cooling effect due to increased efficiency of heat and water vapor transfer to the atmosphere. Further, up to 50% of CO2 in the atmosphere is absorbed into the oceans where it is provided to underwater plant life, which in turn provides food, oxygenation, and habitat for life in the seas. While humans are unquestionably stewards of the Earth, the Earth has numerous balance mechanisms in place.
We are told that "fossil fuels" are a limited resource derived from prehistoric plant and animal material. In fact, there is mounting evidence of deep Earth abiogenic creation of hydrocarbon fuels that work their way to the surface. The Earth itself generates these fuels for our use. Renewable power (which may in fact include hydrocarbons) such as solar and wind, have their place as well, but efficient storage of this periodic energy resource can be challenging and costly. There are also environmental impacts in the production of these systems, and the battery systems that bolster them, to consider. Hydroelectric and geothermal resources, in locations that are suitable for them, should certainly be utilized. Nuclear fission is a viable solution we have now, and nuclear fusion is perhaps the holy grail of energy production that is hopefully in our near future. But until that time, we must allow all of the above, including hydrocarbon fuel, to be used to satisfy the energy needs of humanity. Gasoline, diesel fuel, and other hydrocarbon fuels have excellent energy density at present and are essential to modern economic activity. Peak oil, predicted for over a century, has never come to pass. More oil is being produced today than ever before in history, thanks in large part to better exploration technology and extraction techniques such as fracking. We cannot allow those who oppose the most efficient means of energy production to literally starve and freeze their fellow humans who cannot afford the energy premiums demanded by such anti-energy policies.
We are told that capitalism is a horrible economic system based on greed and must be replaced by ESG (environmental, social, governance) metrics and totalitarian controls dictating the worth of one human versus another. And yet, free market capitalism is the only economic system in the history of the world that has dramatically shifted the vast majority of humanity from severe global poverty and widespread starvation to economic security. It is this level of security that provides the means for humans across the planet to provide better care for the environment. Those in abject poverty cannot focus on environmental wellbeing when they are struggling to eat and provide for their family. Capitalism is not a zero-sum game; wealth is not transferred from one to another, but rather created by human creativity and productivity, thus raising the standard of living of all humans together. In 1800, it is estimated that over 80% of the world's population was below the poverty level, as defined by an income of less than $1.90 in today's dollars. Today, that number is less than 9% and falling. The dramatic economic advances of capitalist societies in the late 20th century and early 21st century in particular have dramatically improved life around the globe, providing opportunities for economic advancement, and creating an environment where charitable giving has reached new heights.
We are told that human babies are simply blobs of cells, up to and even beyond birth in many cases. This devaluation of human life makes it easier for the careless destruction of that life, which is precisely the goal of the demonic realm.
We are told that humans are overpopulating the Earth and that there is no way the Earth can sustain a population of billions of people. This Malthusian myth has been disproven continuously by increasing human innovation, productivity, and the dramatic improvement in the quality of life for even the poorest on Earth. For example, corn crop yields per acre hovered around 20 bushels per acre for most of humanity, until the 1940s when it began increasing due to planting, fertilizer, and harvesting improvements, and has reached a record high of nearly 180 bushels per acre today.
Human ingenuity, technology, and innovation has proven that we can and will succeed on this planet and beyond, if we follow our Spiritually inspired moral compass that elevates human life, and we serve as stewards of the Earth, rather than behave as if we are subservient to it. We must not listen to the lies that promote self-sabotage and destruction, or we risk losing the dramatic progress we have made in recent history. After all, these lies do not even originate from humans, but from those who wish to see humans destroyed. The future is up to us.
