One of the primary pioneering theorists on apocalyptic global warming is Guenther Schwab(1902-2006), an Austrian Nazi.[i] In 1958, Schwab wrote a fictional novel built off of Goethe’s (1749-1832) Faustian religious play Dance with the Devil.” While a few scientists since the late 1800’s had contemplated the possibility of minor global warming coming from industrial pollution, Schwab used Goethe’s dramatic approach to convert the theory into an apocalyptic crisis. The book outlines many looming environmental emergencies, including anthropogenic global warming. Guenther Schwab’s very popular novel was an apocalyptic game changer. By the early 1970’s, it had been translated into several languages and had sold over a million copies.
Investigative blogger and political consultant, Ann “Babe” Huggett, who has been a Gulag Media guest, has pointed out that environmentalism as a belief system largely stems from the dreary opera of German philosopher, Arthur Shopenhauer (link, link). He was a 19th Century grunge headbanger, among those who have tried to systematize life while ignoring revelation. One could think of him as the Distinguished Professor of Unfulfillable Desires.
Those who habitually attempt such futile efforts (often thought of as brights, including the Illuminati) stem from the atheistic end of the enlightenment. Their ideological children include Marxists, fascists, and progressives of many malcontented sorts. There is also much of Shopenhauer in the dingy maze of bedrooms, pantries, and water closets that is Freudian thought.
There are many kinds of weeds in the garden, certainly many green ones.
