Really angry at the Indian socialists (and David Attenborough) who are destroying Indian tigers

Watched a part of this documentary today: The Battle to Save the Tiger. It is quite old, published in 2007. I wasn’t aware at how bad things have become in India with regard to wildlife.

I was really angry as I saw the movie, but also VERY angry at David Attenborough for his TOTAL FAILURE to understand basic economics, which is causing the wildlife population across the world to plummet.

David is a good man but that’s never good enough. He has not tried to understand human behaviour (economics) and how we can design wildlife policies consistent with human behaviour. The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Save the world from good-intentioned fools who are trying to “save animals” even as they promote policies that are guaranteed to kill them.

I was reminded of my blog post: To preserve tigers, let’s consume them. To save tigers, let’s sell them.  Looks like by the time India learns the basics of economics, it will be too late for our tigers.

I’ll share this with some of my friends in the civil service with the hope that at least one or two of them will get involved in TOTALLY changing India’s tiger policy.

One thought on “Really angry at the Indian socialists (and David Attenborough) who are destroying Indian tigers
  1. I Don't Follow Anyone Blindly

    Unfortunately human beings have an unhealthy tendency to idolize famous people, without recognizing that most everyone has feet-of-clay. Sir David Attenborough’s nature documentaries are exceptional–but he is not a God. In fact, he is an entertainer who has chosen the Natural World as his topic–he is a teacher who relies upon others to do much of his research, and sometimes he gets his facts wrong. He’d probably even admit this to be true.

    Attenborough loves the natural world and that makes him an object of adoration–but he has thrown his lot in with some self-aggrandizing pop-celebrities, many of whom exploit environmental causes to prop themselves up, but without genuine profundity of thought. They make grand pronouncements about the planet, animals, atoms and life–but their real motives are to make lots of money. Once they’ve garnered publicity and fortune, they fly off, in gas-guzzling private jets, to the Caribbean Islands, New York, Los Angeles, Greece to bask at resorts and dine at the best restaurants where they regale their audience with tales of their self-proclaimed exploits. It’s all about ego.

    Pity that Attenborough has fallen in with these blood-suckers, but then he claims to prefer “exotic” creatures to the hum-drum hoi-polloi whom he regards as a blight upon the earth. So he throws his weight behind lots causes, some of which are noble, but some are not and they may be responsible for much damage harming poor people. His ego is massaged as his lap-dog groupies wag their tails and applaud whatever he says without the benefit of knowledge or critical analysis, and his crowd of pop-celebrity jokers toast him in order to bask his reflected glory and lay claim to his friendship. It’s worse than embarrassing: it’s nauseating.

    A recent example is Attenborough’s fight to keep a bridge from being built in Borneo: celebrities who don’t have to live in Borneo cheer, never giving a thought to the local people who must continue to make long treks to get to hospitals. Perhaps this fight to keep the bridge from being built in a sanctuary was right and proper: goodness knows that we need to protect our wilderness regions throughout this beautiful planet in order that wildlife have a safe habitat; but where are the proposals to help people who need to travel to get to hospitals and other services? No help there! Nope! Attenborough and his celebrity con-artists are off to the next pop-project to serve their own purposes without due regard for real people whom they look down upon: that’s downright cruel.
