Letter: Should we support the call for war against nature?
Published on January 13, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

Dear Sir:

What exactly does Gonsalves mean when he declares we are at war with nature? Firstly, I believe he is at war with himself. I may be very wrong, but I cannot believe any man can act and behave like him without being at war with himself, even secretly. He is unsure of his own motivation. He cannot resolve in his own mind whether any action he plans to take is for the common good or only for his own benefit. Is he planning an act that is selfish or altruistic? Can he be certain of his real objectives? Can we be certain of his real objectives?

I and most of us know that communism is at war with nature. Communism is described as a classless, moneyless, and stateless social order structured upon common wealth ownership of the means of production, as well as a social, political and economic ideology and movement that aims at the establishment of this social order. With the adoption of communism, those who render it to the masses believe that at last they are master of their own form of social organization, becoming at the same time the lord over Nature, put there to control nature, not for nature to control them. If it controls them then they must take up arms against nature and render war upon it. [Utopian or Scientific by Friedrich Engels].

For instance both Russian communism and Mao's Chinese version both believed that, once their societies had advanced enough, they didn't believe they should be subject to the whims of nature, they wanted to start controlling it for their own use.

How do you get a cat to eat hot pepper? This question, a classic in Marxist training manuals, opens an exercise in revolutionary technique. The answer, to which the student is led by logic and common experience, explains how Communism has been able to take over a third of the world without serious opposition.

How does one get a cat to eat pepper, a condiment as unpalatable to him as Marxist doctrine is to healthy human nature and nature itself?

The first answer to consider is obvious: Force open the cat’s jaws and cram the pepper in. Wrong, because the cat’s willing cooperation is lacking.

The second answer – to conceal the pepper in a tasty fish – is equally inadequate, because as soon as the cat detects the pepper he simply regurgitates it.

The correct answer: Sprinkle the pepper all over the cat’s mat. When he lies on it the pepper will cling to his fur and sting, so that he will soon be licking himself to get it off. This method assures perfect assimilation because (1) the cat is actually ingesting (2) entirely on his own initiative, (3) and a completely conditioned initiative at that, (4) pepper, which he hates.

Ref: Pope, Pius XI in effect described this communist cat and pepper ploy in his encyclical Divini Redemptorist, promulgated on the feast of St Joseph, 1937:

Of course what the training manual is doing is forcing the brain of the reader to think of ways in forcing people to become communists.

I believe to be at war with nature is to be at war with God, because God is nature and nature is God. A man therefore declaring war on nature must be declaring war on God. An intelligent and educated man and a man educated in the Christian religion knows that, he needn't be told or reminded of the evil and folly in such anti God like behaviour such as declaring war on nature.

Communist political history is largely an account of mass violence and of the expenditure of vast resources to cope with mythical fears and hopes against man, and much more against nature. It’s easy for a hateful man to hate, perhaps nature is easier to hate than man, but it’s equally as easy to hate anyone or anything that does not support your very cause, your very being, your very control of all and everything. So when you cannot control nature, hate and war may well be the answer of such men.

Well, summing up and all my conclusions considered, any man that believes we can win a war against nature, who refuses to work closely with nature, is himself a reject of nature.
