Want to save the polar bears? (that don’t really need saving…)Want to have a cleaner world? Then have babies. Lots of them. More specifically, I think Americans should have babies.
Whereas liberals debate whether conservation or a Sentinel sized federal government is the proper way to care for the environment, the conservative position should be self-evident: Free countries and free people can unleash the entrepreneurial spirit of their citizens to overcome almost any obstacle. Want a renewable natural resource? Human creativity is a well that never runs dry. You can tap into the human spirit again and again and never come up empty.
The problem is, liberals tend not to trust the population to provide answers to the world’s problems because they’re under the impression it’s filled with racist, bigoted, redneck hicks. And sometimes, people who claim to be of the conservative world view really aren’t. Which is weird because liberal politicians and those who agree with the notion that only mama government can cure what ails you often are rock solid examples of what the human body and human imagination are capable of.
Why is it that liberal self-made millionaires bash the system that made them rich? Why do self-righteous hypocritical filmmakers believe technology and capitalism are great for making 3D movies, but inconsistent with being good stewards of the environment?
Conservatives need to make the case that the way to a “greener” world is by having free people make money -more specifically dollars- and by having their children grow up to be the next Steve Jobs or Bill Gates instead of the next Harry Reid.
