Documentary by Wesley J. Smith
“Are humans the enemy? Should pigs and peas have constitutional rights? The War on Humans is a 31-minute documentary that critiques growing efforts to disparage the value of humans in the name of saving the planet. The documentary investigates the views of anti-human activists who want to grant legal rights to animals, plants, and “Mother Earth,” and who want to reduce the human population by up to 90%. The video features Discovery Institute Senior Fellow Wesley J. Smith, author of a companion e-book with the same title.
According to Smith, if the anti-human activists have their way, it will be the end of civilized society as we know it. Valuable natural resources from oil to land could be placed permanently off limits for human use. Farmers could be held criminally liable for plowing new fields if it caused the deaths of rodents, snakes, and even weeds. Hydroelectric projects to bring power to villages in Africa could be shut down because they violated the right of rivers to run freely.”
In the debate on anthropogenic global warming, The War on Humans is somewhat tangential, but the connection to some sects of global warming boosters is plain. Smith has put together a well-made and compelling short documentary about the origins and aims of anti-human environmental radicals.
