The Difference Between ELF and Mainstream Environmentalists
By David Holcberg (August 7, 2003)
What is the difference between the ELF environmentalists who burned down an apartment complex under construction in San Diego on Friday and "mainstream" environmentalists? The *means* they choose to chip away at--and eventually destroy--freedom and modern civilization.
While ELF environmentalists employ direct violence to attack private property and prevent new development, "mainstream" environmentalists favor the indirect approach of using the government's power to do the same. Since human life requires and benefits from freedom and technology, both types of environmentalists are guilty of advancing an anti-human agenda.
