Do we make homes to serve humans, or do we make humans to serve the homes? Is the house built for the human, or is the human built for the house? The government and eco-radical have answered the question, and they have answered incorrectly.
There is a famous curse in Genesis (3:17-19). It is a curse decreed directly following the fall. The curse, given to man from God, decrees,
“…cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life; thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you; and you shall eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
The curse of our failure in Genesis is that the world in which we live is wild and untamed. It is our job to tame it, but instead of submitting peacefully, the world fights back with vicious strife and struggle. The world is ours as humans to rule, but it mounts resistance.
It is not lost upon me that the words and phrases I just employed come across as radical, but they are not radical. They only seem so because we have been indoctrinated from kindergarten to worship the Earth. My words seem radical, though they are not radical at all, because we have been told, almost all our lives, to respect “Mother Earth.” But if she is a mother, she is a stepmother with no real love for us. Just ask the man left to freeze to death outside in December. At any rate, our bureaucracy has commanded we worship the world, so any talk of ruling it, though that is part of our created and true purpose, now sounds extreme.
We can therefore take one of two sides. We can struggle for man and life, or we can struggle for the world. If we fight for mankind, we indeed make the world a better place, just as a mother fighting for her children makes the home as clean as it can possibly be. If, on the other hand, we fight for the world, we do not so much make it a better place as we do drive our species insane. What, after all, would we think of a parent who forced his or her child to serve and worship their home?
But a messy home is an uninhabitable home. As such, in order to make our home—Earth—habitable and conducive for human life, we must tame it. We construct massive cities to streamline our ecosystem, and we drive cars and pave highways to meet our transportation needs. We build insulted shelters to protect us from the cold and invent air conditioning units to combat the oppressive heat of the atmosphere.
In this, the world is wild and unpredictable. It permits and even sustains human life, but it can wipe us out in a moment. However, fertilizer is one of those tools that turn the tide of battle in the midst of combat.
There is, perhaps, nothing that has so advanced human civilization and tamed the Earth in the last 200 years like nitrogen fertilizer. Our crops are abundant and robust. Our yields are remarkable. Our quality of crop is exemplary.
3-4 billion people have life today because of nitrogen fertilizer.*
Without fertilizer, we should be forced to reduce our yields, thereby increasing scarcity (and thus value, and thus price) and starvation worldwide as a consequence. This is not debatable, either. Trudeau’s “30% nitrogen emissions reduction” will reduce crop yields. No radical can argue otherwise. Trudeau’s nitrogen ban will reduce yields, weaken crops, and increase food scarcity (and therefore starvation and other goods and services) around the world. Anyone who tries to counter this point is undeserving of a reply.
In this, the Liberals can take their fertilizer reduction and shove it. We fight for mankind, for Christ, and for life, and are therefore happy benefactors and beneficiaries of nitrogen fertilizer. The Liberals love to flaunt their humanitarian ideals, but isn’t that strange, considering all of them are losing their humanity?
