Pentti Linkola, true prophet of doom:

"Not only has he called alcoholics, bums and druggies the real life conservationists, he has stated in the article Vuotos ja Suomen Kuvalehti that « It is always better to be unemployed than to work for something destructive ». As one reader of Linkola, Arto Tukiainen, nicely pointed out, a hell for him would be a sweltering throng of people sweating at their jobs.

Linkola has a long history in questioning the significance of employment. In the 1960 article Runo-Suomi vai hyvinvointivaltio he declares that a «mass psychosis» is being developed, making every one who is not employed for each day of the year, everyone who is not participating in the « blazing bustle » as he wonderfully calls it, complain bitterly. In the same article, he boasts he has never had a regular job for more than four months in a year. To him it’s only expected that some fields of profession do not offer enough work year-round. A regular all-year job with the pitiful holidays it offers is, for Linkola, a terrible disaster for the mind and spirit."

"With its every technological invention, celebrated innovation, mankind has made itself useless and alienated itself from the natural world. In recent years progress has been break-neck. Man has been successful in obliterating the roles of producer, refiner, transporter, distributor and serviceman. When we succeed in doing away with the consumer, everything will be finished. A short time of clicking robots. Then a great silence."
...

"Democracy merely follows the whims and caprices - alias The Will - of the people. The consequences are frightening. The suicidal society that we see around us is what follows. Democracy is the meanest of all known social systems, the cornerstone of the tower of doom. Therein the unmanageable freedom of production and consumption and the desires of the many is not only allowed, but also elevated as the highest of values. The most incomparably serious environmental disasters occur in democracies. Any kind of dictatorship is always superior to democracy, being less likely to lead to utter destruction, because it restricts the individual and the group, their whims and fashions, one way or other. When individual freedom reigns, the human being is both killer and victim."
