In Their Own Words: Environmentalists Out to Dismantle Capitalism
Posted By Brandon Stewart On February 16, 2010 @ 12:22 pm In Energy | Comments Disabled
A video  from a David Horowitz retreat several months back has already cost one person a job . The video shows Patrick Caddell , former pollster to Jimmy Carter, lament that “the whole idea of the environmental movement isn’t to clean up the environment” but rather to “basically deconstruct capitalism. They are against capitalism.” A little later Caddell continues, “I happen to believe this country needs a good dose of what it believes in: real democracy and real free enterprise.”
While embarrassing to those on the left who promote the sort of policies Caddell refers to, the remark comes as no surprise to The Heritage Foundation—our extensive research on the subject  has long demonstrated that succumbing to the environmental lobby has often come at  the  expense  of jobs and free trade.
