George Monbiot

About George Monbiot

I was motivated to write the following as a disclaimer to a link to the Guardian article of  Dec 09, linked to from the article of  Dec 09 by David Spratt.

George Monbiot has written a number of very incisive and damning critiques of our corrupt corporatised New World Order including "How Did We Get Into This Mess?" of 27 Aug 07, which shows how the propagandists for the doctrine, referred to as economic neo-liberalism, including Milton Friedman and Friedrich von Hayek, began to organise at a meeting at a Swiss spa resort at Mont Pelerin in 1947, and, hence became known as the Mont Pelerin Society.

This article anticipated, albeit very concisely. by a few months, some of what was published in Naomi Klein's Towering a few months later.

Nevertheless, in spite of this, some serious questions hang over George Monbiot's head.

The first is his downplaying of the peril that human overpopulation poses to our environment and our very future. Whilst proclaiming himself to be an environmentalist, he has absurdly claimed that human over population is relatively trivial problem in comparison to over-consumption and inequality. The implication that many draw from that message, whether or not that is his intention, is that one should focus almost exclusively on the former and do little about the latter. For more information, see other , tagged with "George Monbiot".

The second, and, I believe, even more serious, is his denial of the clear evidence implicating senior figures in the administration of President George W Bush in the false flag terrorist attack of 11 September 2001, otherwise referred to as . On at least one occasion, Monbiot publicly argued this in a debate with David Ray Griffin.

For me, effectively helping to cover up that crime raises very serious questions for anyone purporting to oppose the agenda of George Bush and his successor, President Obama. This causes me to strongly suspect that Monbiot may in fact, be a 'left gatekeeper' in the mould of , of whom I have written in my article of 26 May 09.
