NETA (Nazis for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) and the SS-ierra Club are a couple of examples of how worshipping nature as God leads inevitably down the road of Sinisterism – Nazism, Marxism, and other modern various of radical Leftism. There is, of course, no actual NETA or SS-ierra Club, although the Nazis, always absurdly placed on the nonexistent “Far Right,” were in fact Sinisterists, just like environmental goons, as described in my book, Sinisterism: Secular Religion of the Lie. They care nothing at all about human life, its divine creation or transcendent purposes for human conscience and consciousness, and to them we are all simply different forms of dirt.
Consider the following statement in 1934 by Ernst Lehmann, a leading biologist under the Nazi regime: “We recognize that separating humanity from nature, from the whole of life, leads to humankind’s own destructions. Only through a re-integration of humanity into the whole of nature can our people be made stronger. This striving toward connectedness with the totality of life, with nature itself, a nature into which we are born, this is the deepest meaning and the true essence of National Socialist thought.” Nazi architect Alwyn Seifert, nicknamed “Mr. Mother Earth,” said of plant life in Nazi Germany “Nothing foreign should be added and nothing native should be left out.”
Nazis supported environmentalism and ecology and Hitler frequently complained about “over-industrialization.” He expressed a profound distaste for cities and industrial areas and created a number of national parks and wildlife preserves. His Nazis enthusiastically supported environmentalism: when only about ten percent of the population of Germany belonged to the Nazi Party, almost seventy percent of the members of environmental groups in Germany were Nazi Party members. The Nazis required “environmental effect reports,” essentially environmental impact statements before new industry could be constructed. Walter Darre, Nazi Minister of Agriculture, supported organic farming and opposed the use of chemical pesticides. Nazis opposed hydroelectric dams on the Rhine because of its environmental damage.
Nazis were fierce protectors of animal rights. Hitler and Himmler were vegetarians. The Nazis passed legislation in 1933 protecting animal species and plant species, blocking industrial development that interfered with animal habitats, and these very early Nazi laws ran over state or local laws. Although indifferent to human life, consider what Herman Goring proclaimed on August 17, 1933:
“In order to prevent the spreading of torture to animals before such law [the Nazi legislation outlawing cruelty to animals]. I issued this decree, making use of a right that is accorded to me, to put violators who still think that they can treat animals as a lifeless commodity into protective custody or a concentration camp. The German people have always shown great compassion for animals and issues concerning animal-rights. They always saw in animals, especially those which became their compatriots in house, homes or battles for thousands of years, yes, we can say; in many ways their co-workers and – one need only to think about the horses – even comrades in arms, creatures of God. For the German people, animals are not just living things in an organic senses, but creatures who have their own unique feels, who feel pain, joy, and show loyalty and affection. Never would the German people’s love for animals permit them to treat animals as objects without feelings or souls, to be used only as tools, or to be exploited, to be discarded, whether for reasons of usefulness or not, or to be tortured or destroyed for the same reasons.”
How does all this fit in with Nazis as a “Far Right” group concerned only with profit and indifferent to Mother Earth? Of course not, but there is no “Far Right.” There are only ordinary people and Sinisterists, who have an utterly secular or pagan religion based upon the worship of the lie. So when you meant a Leftist who presumes to oppose drilling for oil in ANWAR or off the coast of the United States or the building of refineries, and you try to explain to him that the world may come to the brink of nuclear Armageddon because of his irrational indifference to the vast production of oil allowed America to defeat the Nazis in the Second World War, do not be surprised if the Leftist yawns: like all Sinisterists, including those who lead Germany into the Second World War and committed the Holocaust, his faith is in the idols of nature and he is willing to see any crime committed to protect his jealous gods and goddesses.
