According to its own champions, the modern doctrine of “environmentalism” is rooted in the work of British naturalist Charles Darwin (1809-1882). The neurotic, third-rate scientist Darwin, in turn, claimed Parson Thomas Malthus (1766-1834) as his own spiritual father. This gloomy parson had claimed that the human
population expands geometrically (2, 4, 8, 16,…), while food supplies grow only arithmetically (1, 2, 3, 4,…). Thus, according to Malthus, there was necessarily an incessant struggle for existence in which only the strong survive. Darwin declared that the resultant “war of each against all” led to the “survival of the ﬁ ttest”, a process of “natural selection” that gave rise to new species.
