This is some Wall-e tier story from the Dark Continent.
Emergency workers in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa searched through a mountain of garbage for the fifth consecutive day on Thursday as the death toll from a landslide at a rubbish landfill site rose to 115.
The Horn of Africa country has declared three days of national mourning for the victims of the disaster that occurred at the 50-year-old Reppi dump on Saturday evening.
Two bodies were uncovered on Thursday morning, rescue workers and residents taking part in the search said, a day after a government spokesperson raised the toll to 113, 75 of whom were women
This happened in the capital city of Ethiopia, not just a poor rural backwater. It was in one of the bad parts of town named Kosh- which translates to “stinky” or “dirty”.
It may as well be Wall-E planet from the future.
From what can be gleaned listening to local accounts, the city government decided to keep dumping trash in higher and higher piles, despite complaints from the locals.
Eventually one of the piles got too high and unstable. Some of the trash mountains are more than 40 meters deep. It started to slide down like a mudslide and buried the local scavengers ferreting around the waste piles looking for food or salvageable things to sell.
As the number of missing people is still high, we expect to pull more bodies out today and in the coming days,” an emergency worker told Reuters.
Residents of the area say at least 80 people remain unaccounted for. Dozens of victims have so far been buried at the Abune Aregawi Church nearby since Tuesday.
This is the Third World, folks. As far as being good stewards of the environment, White countries have their own fair share of problems… but there aren’t trash avalanches killing hundreds of slum dwellers in Belgrade or Berlin or Rome.
Ethiopia is one of the fastest growing African economies and what they are experiencing is in no way unique. Many Third World countries are industrializing and experiencing population booms despite living conditions getting worse and completely ineffective systems of governance being in place. The toll on the environment and the people should be enough to give any concerned conservationist, enviromentalist or lefty tree-hugger pause.
Do we want the planet to start resembling Wall-e world or Idiocracy? Why then do White countries keep subsidizing the growth of the Third World? Do liberals really think that 3rd Worlders are better stewards of the environment?
Cognitive dissonance is the only way to describe it, or just plain ignorance.
The West is populated by generations of naive SWPLs who have overdosed on films like Pocahontas, Dances With Wolves and Avatar.
Stories like this should be wake-up calls. Non-white cultures aren’t as magical and in tune with nature as you have been led to believe. In fact, its just the opposite. You can have your leafy suburbs, and your clean city boulevards, only because of the environmental consciousness of White society. Sure, there are still plenty of improvements that we can make to take better care of the environment, but look at what SWPLs and hippies want the future to look like:
Why is it that only white people care about “carbon-neutral,” and “eco-friendly” stuff. Who else would have dreamed up such a concept? Somehow I don’t think that the Chinese are that interested in “sustainable eco-communities.”
Do we want to live in some sort of Cyberpunk dystopia a la Kowloon city?
Or lets look at how other peoples live in the world.
Do we want to one day wake up and see this ocean of poverty from our own windows? Something tells me that your typical bike-riding, kale-munching hipster would an hero at the very thought of having to live in that kind of environment.
One of the most powerful messages of the Alt-Right is our environmental one, and it is a message that hasn’t been hit on hard enough. Whether its Gen X or Millenials or Gen Z, everyone is pro-environment. All we have to do is associate ourselves with green policies. This shouldn’t be hard at all.
Everything we touch becomes beautiful. Our films constantly show an innate and reverent attitude towards the power of nature.
Take this scene from LOTR:
The Orcs and Uruk-Hai are associated with filth, industrializion, and hatred of all things that are good and green in Middle-Earth.
In other words…
so you be tellin’ me…
*eyes bug out*
we WUZ ENTS?
Or this scene from Kingdom of Heaven.
Balian is a crusader who comes to the Middle-East and turns his little patch of dirt into a green oasis.
This idea has huge memetic potential, and the way has already been paved for us. All we have to do is show the truth of the Third World and strengthen the association of White culture with environmentally friendly culture. In other words, we frame it like this:
“Do you want your tax money going to humanitarian aid to Ethiopia or do you want solar panels installed on top of every single Starbucks within Portland city-limits?”
Your choice, SWPLs.
