According to the daughter of the late Steve Irwin, her essay on the “population problem” was first edited, then retracted altogether by the editors of the State Department’s e-journal.
Bindi Irwin, the now 14-year old daughter of the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin was apparently invited by the editors of the State Department’s e-journal as part of Clinton’s “endangered species initiative” to write an essay on how the young Irwin views wildlife conservationism. Irwin, in response to the assignment, spoke her mind, regurgitating the same old neo-Malthusian death-talk we have become accustomed with from the mouths of conservationists such as David Attenborough, Paul Ehrlich and other people devoted to reducing the world’s population “for the earth”.
When the editors of Hillary Clinton’s State Department’s online journal received Irwin’s essay, they returned the thing with all references to “overpopulation” edited out.
Bindi’s mother, Terri Irwin, spoke to News.com.au, stating that “she (Bindi) was asked to write an essay about the environment and included the consideration of population (growth) and they returned her essay edited and completely edited that out.”
“So Bindi wrote to Hillary Clinton’s organisation and said ‘what happened to freedom of speech?”, Terri Irwin continued.
After the editors of Hillary Clinton’s journal told Irwin there wasn’t enough time for a rewrite, Bindi decided to withdraw the article altogether.
As I said, Irwin’s original, unedited essay contains classical Malthusian and Ehrlichian thinking based on the faulty opinion that more people means less resources.
“I believe that most problems in the world today, such as climate change, stem from one immense problem which seems to be the ‘elephant in the room’ that no-one wants to talk about.”, Bindi writes.
Further on she writes: “How is it possible that our fragile planet can sustain these masses of people.”
I assume Irwin wrote her essay in ignorance. She might be persuaded to think otherwise after seeing the following video:
In any case it seems the State Department is extremely cautious on the subject, perhaps afraid to be subjected to all kinds of criticism for openly providing a platform to advocates of population control (although there are still some first class neo-Malthusian snakes slithering around the White House). In the final equation, I think the government’s caution in regards to everything relating to this subject is a good thing. After all, it shows they are on the defense, knowing that a growing number of people have become aware of the elite’s depopulation plans.
