In defense of violent environmentalism, Gallagher portrays the late Ron Arnold, founder of the Wise Use Movement, as a radical property rights advocate. Who she holds responsible for coining the phrase “eco-terrorism” as part of his self-proclaimed goal of “destroy[ing] environmentalists by taking their money and members.” Gallagher’s diatribe goes on to suggest the FBI’s Operation Backfire was created as a “Green Scare” campaign geared to wipe out the so-called eco-terrorist groups. To illustrate the illogical treatment of radical environmentalists, she points out how members of the Earth Liberation Front (ELF) had received enhanced prison sentences for ‘direct action’ campaigns of vandalism and arson between 1995 and 2001. Totaling ignored that those violent direct-action campaigns were an assault on individual property rights and provided no ecological benefit at all.

It’s important to recognize that there are profound differences of opinion regarding the subject of property rights, but some believe that only one side should get to define both the financial and moral motivations of their political opposition. This has become an especially critical problem because it now involves political issues directly related to government-run business ventures.

Ron Arnold was a former Sierra Club member who considered himself a very strong conservationist. He believed that environmental groups had exaggerated or even invented perceived environmental threats to advance a narrow-minded political agenda. Zoe Gallagher’s legal theories concerning Eco-Terrorism demonstrates a total lack of awareness concerning those civil rights.

When Arnold wrote ‘Eco Terror: The Violet Agenda to Save Nature- The World of the Unabomber‘ in 1997, he seriously doubted the dubious claims that Theodore Kaczynski had acted as an isolated individual. He correctly pointed out how members of Earth First! had produced an “Eco-F*cker Hit List” targeting a hundred organizations that had supported the wise use movement. He also demonstrated the many similarities between the bizarre Manifesto by Kaczynski and the book Confessions of an EcoWarrior produced by Earth First! Co-founder Dave Foreman.

The vast majority of victims from the self-appointed warriors of Eco-Terrorism were engaged in real estate ventures. Not oil, natural gas, or coal.

Those projects were probably not on the same scale as California’s Bullet Train to Nowhere or the new Academic Village, which provides affordable housing for students from six local colleges. They used tax-exempt bonds to be repaid by revenue from their projects. The violent actions of the Unabomber killed two university employees and had nothing whatsoever to do with real estate or education. This may explain the confusion over different legal views on property rights in California, where there appear to be as many variations as campuses within the University of California system. Each interprets the Diversity, Equality, and Idiocy (DEI) Industrial Complex differently.

One shining example of this legal double standard is the Berkeley California-China Climate Institute, which has allegedly operated out of the law office at UC Berkeley since 2010. Former CA Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown chairs this government-owned non-profit that created its own Climate Corps® brand of products as part of a Global Alliance of Universities on Climate as an economic model. His crew of bureaucrat entrepreneurs has teamed up with China’s Institute of Climate Change and Sustainable Development at Tsinghua University. This is associated with another U.N. initiative, the Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE), funded by the European Union, Germany, Finland, Norway, the Republic of Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Arab Emirates. The PAGE group comprises UNIDO, the International Labour Organization (ILO), and the U.N. Institute for Training and Research, which function similarly to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE). All these actors are the last source that honest humans should trust for sound business practices or morality.

When Ron Arnold warned Americans that “public hysteria will destroy industrial civilization,” it was from tactics like the Natural Resource Defense Council’s Alar Scare in 1989. That had used a highly questionable report, which caused over $100 million in losses for apple growers and destroyed thousands of small U.S. businesses. That was the same year as the Tiananmen Square massacre when Communist China killed several thousand pro-democracy demonstrators. Many were there to protest environmental issues related to the massive water-diversion projects that up-rooted millions, destroying thousands of cities, farms, religious sites, and ancient cultural heritage sites. Which had been fully supported by Western banksters, industrialists, and universities.

Millions were forced at gunpoint to abandon homelands with thousands of years of sustained heritage, which could be classified as the ultimate property rights issue of the 20th century. Modern academics have no problem grossing over that level of carnage, which they consider as little more than a conflict resolution item involving some Anti-State Grievances. Journalists hadn’t concocted their ‘Silence Is Violence’ narrative yet because corporate media was still applying the ‘Silence Is Golden’ rule to justify the spending on behalf of a Communist dictatorship.

China is the largest manufacturer of the EPA’s premium-priced ENERGY STAR® brand, now being marketed under exclusive agreements through the Dept of Energy. Except, those EPA products are being marketed by other non-profit groups like the SEL Climate Corps, a partner of the Americorps group, which is one more Public/Private Partnership pushing green-washing schemes under the guise of public services. All of these taxpayer-funded organizations claim to support DEI policies, as they erect barriers to all critics of their twisted New World Order.

These groups may have set up their own Global Ambassadors division, but it wasn’t to curry favors with the average citizen in any nation. The goal was to push the newest version of the U.N. agenda, which was explained in “Forging a Shared Path to a Net-Zero Future: U.S. China Climate Action Opportunities Paper Series,” to accelerate climate action, released in March of 2023.

The new ‘Climate Action Opportunities Papers Series’ will produce more insightful articles on property rights and who government lawyers think will stand up to the real Eco-Terrorist in the future. American voters should pay close attention to these issues because the highly paid media will not provide balanced reporting on energy-related issues going into the 2024 Presidential election cycle.
