(SlowPoke News) Fukuyama. A political meeting caused uproar among concerned citizens.
Last week, the new green formation, Global Nature Consensus (GNC), campaigned in Fukuyama shopping center. With their “slogan, Restore a Productive Coexistence between Us and Nature !”, GNC developed a new approach to seduce voters, rather to frighten them with apocalyptic threats. However, during his speech, Takeshi Hirokawa, GNC candidate for the next mayoral election in East Fukuyama City, was harshly interrupted by an enraged gaijin.
Takeshi Hirokawa : ..would you be willing to forego your cars in order to prevent polluting the air and save the planet?
Jouji Kaarin : …wut ! Are these fucking people kidding me? Save the planet ? we don’t even know how to take care of ourselves yet. We haven’t learned how to care for one another, we’re gonna save the fucking planet? I’m getting tired of that shit. Tired of that shit. I’m tired of fucking Earth Day, I’m tired of fucking Climate Talks, I’m tired of these self-righteous environmentalists, these white collars, bourgeois liberals who think the only thing wrong with this country is there aren’t enough bicycle paths. People trying to make the world safe for their Hondas. Besides, environmentalists don’t give a shit about Japan. They don’t care about the Planet. Not in the abstract they don’t. You know what they’re interested in? A clean place to live. Their own habitat. They’re worried that some day in the future, they might be personally inconvenienced. Narrow, unenlightened self-interest doesn’t impress me. Besides, there is nothing wrong with the planet. Nothing wrong with the planet. The planet is fine. The PEOPLE are fucked. Difference. Difference…
Hirokawa gains election to the office of mayor in East Fukuyama City. He wins by running on a campaign centered around locally-based environmentalism. Secretly, Hirokawa is a radical environmentalist who believes that the Parasites’ purpose is to cull the human population, standing one step above them on the food chain.
Proponents of deep ecology believe that the world does not exist as a resource to be freely exploited by humans. Proponents of deep ecology offer a platform to elucidate their claims :
- The flourishing of human life and cultures is compatible with a substantial decrease of the human population. The flourishing of nonhuman life requires such a decrease
The phrase “deep ecology” was coined by the Norwegian philosopher Arne Næss in 1973.
Næss has proposed, as Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke writes, “that the earth’s human population should be reduced to about 100 million.“
