4.0 out of 5 stars An important report on a little known phenomenon November 25, 2012
By Nevski
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C. S. Lewis

C. S. Lewis nicely summarizes the content of Elizabeth Nickson's book. Starting with her own troubles on Saltspring Island (which, bizarrely, she gives the impression is in the US when it is actually in Canada), where she owns some property; Nickson expands her thesis to much of the western US. Her thesis is that ENGOs (Environmental Non-Government Organizations) and other environmental groups are ruining and depopulating rural America 'with the approval of their own conscience[s]' through bureaucratic fiat with the support of naive but rich big city donors cocooned in their municipalities. Her evidence is persuasive and alarming. As a resident of rural British Columbia (I have been to Saltspring Island - it's beautiful), I know that local, mostly Vancouver and Victoria based, greens have steadily been attacking the rural parts of our province by the very means elucidated by Nickson. Already, their foibles have largely been responsible for the disastrous pine beetle epidemic that has devastated the forestry industry in northern and central BC.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun read for those short on time January 22, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is like fast food or candy. You get a short quick view on each and every topic it covers, and I do mean short. This is not some deep scholarly tome and the author admits this up front. If you have 5 minutes and want to read a very brief introduction to a few eco topics, this might be for you. At least it makes the reader aware of where the Eco-Fascists are coming from historically.

5.0 out of 5 stars The environment trashed along with jobs and freedom. October 27, 2012
Format:Hardcover
Environmentalists have changed since the 1960's. Now the movement is a well oiled machine, using tax dollars, private trust funds and corporate grants. What benefit to humanity is there for all this spending?

It would appear, from the interviews and research that is set out in this book, that what America has purchased is declining rural communities, destruction of the natural world and many species more in danger of harm than before the `green' activists got involved.

For Canadians the connection between the Pew Charitable Trusts fortune, which sprang from Suncor Oil, the presence of Sun Oil family members and heirs on the board of directors of Pew and the anti-oil sands programs being financed by Pew in Canada might cause reasonable people to wonder if the criticism of the oil sands is based on economics or environment.

Well written, well researched, and downright scary. Just in time for Halloween.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alternate format improves readability January 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is written in an alternate format that I personally enjoyed. The author interweaves two lines of discussion throughout the book. The first, the regulatory changes and the agenda behind them nationwide and their impact. The second, her personal experience navigating the regulatory juggernaut of her home community, the island of Salt Springs. I found the format was both entertaining and compelling and made the book much more readable. Instead of a book filled with dry statistics and regulations, it was made more personal and relatable.
With respect to the content of the book, the author's warnings and predictions should give all liberty-minded individuals pause. The threat posed by good-intentioned (but naive and foolish environmental activists) today is dire and is having extreme unintended consequences that are affecting individual liberty, our culture, our economy, and our overall way of life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read, drawn out at times March 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good book - the writer focuses a lot of her own specific example - which is very interesting, but can get a bit dramatic/soap-opera like at times. I prefer the hard hitting facts & examples she states in the book, not so much the long-drawn out examples of committee meetings she attended with so & so. Still a good read, and certainly opened my eyes to some of the "non-profit" & "conservation" organisations out there. I simply had no idea that conservation land is being purposefully created in order to move people out of the rural areas and into the cities, where they can be more easily controlled as a "mass population". Very interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eco-Truth November 19, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Very good book on Eco-Truth with personal experience of author connected to regulations control.
The book will make you angry enough to throw it away after first 90 pages or so but perserve if you want the whole truth to what green and wild movements are doing to the property rights in the USA.

The coal industry fights this battle every day and brown outs can not be in the too distant future.

I thank the author for her perseverance on her property and trying to awaken many others.
