Libertarians and the Environment
Libertarians hate the planet! That is the refrain from those who love the government. Not only is this statement false but it is intentionally so. Collectivists, Statists, Globalists, Fascists, Socialists, Communists, Democrats, Republicans, or any other group that believes that putting protection of the environment in the hands of government and global corporations is a good idea push this narrative for one purpose, profit. The real answer to the question, “How do we protect the environment?” is private property and free markets.
I know that many people have been trained to have a knee jerk reaction away from the thought of free trade as a solution. The media, who are controlled by the same government and owned by the same corporate monsters, tell us every time there is a disaster that the state is the only solution. They blame “Capitalism” for creating the problem. Greed is what makes corporations take short cuts on safety or environmental protections. This is easy to prove false. The cause of this lack of caring is the government itself and the regulations it imposes.
I am a proud Libertarian, and I believe in the individual. The free market and property rights are the tools that a free people have to help the environment. Nature and this planet are sacred to me. It is obvious to me, that the accusations against Libertarians are nothing more than propaganda. I as an individual take steps to do as little damage as I can to this world. I am not perfect but I certainly care more than those in the government or global corporations.
