“Resources must be diverted from frivolous and wasteful uses in overdeveloped countries to filling the genuine needs of underdeveloped countries," Holdren and his co-authors wrote. "This effort must be largely political, especially with regard to our overexploitation of world resources, but the campaign should be strongly supplemented by legal and boycott action against polluters and others whose activities damage the environment. The need for de-development presents our economists with a major challenge. They must design a stable, low-consumption economy in which there is a much more equitable distribution of wealth than in the present one. Redistribution of wealth both within and among nations is absolutely essential, if a decent life is to be provided for every human being.”


So, we should basically give everyone else our slice of pie, so thaat we are all equal. I guess the other countries have no responsibility, just us. Wow, just when I think I've heard it all.....sooner or later someone sane has to be heard, not just the people in now. To be fair that includes the people from the Bush administration thaat Obama kept on....

I tell you what I'd like to see, and it's not commie/socialist anti USA in nature.
I'd like to see those nations that are better off, more developed show alot more social responsibility.
I'd like to see some of the front page ideas I grew up looking at and reading on popular science mags and
popular mechanics mags in development receiving funding and coming to the world market.
I think in my over 5 decades on this planet there have been enough new bombs and weapons manufactured and sold, there's only so many ways you can kill people and shred up flesh.
I'm not preaching nwo, or global government, I'm simply saying,
someone doesnt always have to lose, parts of the world dont always have to suffer, the worn out old fearful business models of kill and make a killing doing it have never been challenged by those who work at the levels of government and business that can make a difference.
There is a way to continue to make a living, for everyone, to allow for individual gains along with corporate gains and the day that the sick and stuck old fearful rulers in the ruling class choose to try something new sure isnt coming soon enough.
The elite are not so smart, and the common are not so dumb.

Holdren's definition of de-development,


De-development means bringing our economic system (especially patterns of consumption) into line with the realities of ecology and the global resource situation,” Holdren and the Ehrlichs wrote.

Little different from how you framed it in the title, eh?

Yes, thats their general idea but I doubt they are talking about "their personal" piece of the pie, more like yours and mine..
Their pie is ever increasing with no thought of sharing.
Its called money and power.....

The agenda of the globalists, or NWO if you prefer, is the Sovietization of the West, with an elite power base retaining great wealth, and the rest of us as serfs. The most important step for them is the elimination of the US as it exists now, as it is the only country that can, on paper at least, overthrow the bankers/elite within their own country, and proceed to free the others via use of their military. Once we allow this Sovietization to take place, and we are well on our way to doing just that, there will be little hope for the existence of what we have come to know as "the free West". The decline in our way of living would not only be an economic one, which we could certainly as a society deal with if we had to, but an elimination of anything resembling free choice, speech, actions, and thought. This administration ( which is itself a puppet administration of the real powers in charge) is doing their utmost to bring on this collapse. John Holdren and Cass Sunstein, just to name two, are two very dangerous individuals. I recommend making a quick search on them to familiarize yourselves on what they want for you and your countrymen. When you finish, read up on one of Obama's mentors and closest advisors, Zbigniew Brzezinski. We are living in precarious times my friends. Good luck to you all.

So he wants the U.S economy to implode, so it becomes even more relatively cheaper-safer for our rich to invest in third world countries. Guess we can then turn against our rich, and install "Progressives" .The man is a traitor to the American way of life, that powers global growth.
If he was a good Science Czar he would keep his talk about State Interference to encouraging tax breaks in e.g. green-agriculture ectors of the economy. In time the third world would benefit by the advances in technology originating from the West.

Technology alone is the reason why mankind can sustain a population people even a hundred years ago thought would lead to economic ruin-starvation. It is one of the best ways to fight third world poverty, because unlike aid programmes, it not so subject to inefficiency, bribery and corruption.
However it brings economic growth, and tends to pay for itself without damaging growth. There is no shortage of ways to innovate-progress the human world.

Jesus Christ, so the PTB spent half a century fighting off Red Communism, only to try and resurrect a concept that they helped destroy?

Oh, message from god coming in...

Exactly, we need to use our military to "free" the others!

I suggest bombing the captives prisons with thermonuclear devices!!!

Anything that comes out of Holdren's mouth is garbage. He's the character that thinks trees should be able to sue people. I guess it's because he has the IQ of lumber. Holdren and Trees

Darn I hate communists, and this administration is top heavy with them. These folks don't understand even the bare minimum of basic economics. They think that wealth is a result of hoarding a limited pie of a few resources. Nothing could be further from the truth. Wealth first and foremost springs from values and secondly from ideas. The poorest American has more wealth and luxury at his disposal than any king from thousands of years ago. That is due to innovation and economies of scale.

It is ironic that the wealthiest nations are often resource poor. Take Great Britain for example or Japan or Singapore. Yet many resource rich nations have very poor populations. Wealth is a function of productivity and innovation. Technology, could in theory, solve many of the poverty issues that we have, but most people are mired in toxic value systems. That is why we are seeing the erosion of wealth in many Western societies. They have rejected God and are paying the consequences. We see further generations of children raised in single parent homes or by the state and their freedoms are robbed by greedy tax and spend communists, like the fools who are pushing this nonsense.
