“In the 1960s, the spirit of Southern Agrarians was reborn in the modern environmental movement, complete with its recurrent hysterias. The first of those hysterias came from Rachel Carson’s The Silent Spring (1962), which depicted a world shorn of birds by the effects of DDT. Like Lewis Sinclair’s Main Street published in the wake of WWI, The Silent Spring was set against the backdrop of war ─ in this case, atomic testing.” ─The Revolt Against the Masses, copyright © 2013 by Fred Siegel, Encounter Books, Page 164.
“Environmentalism also drew on the earlier Malthusian liberalism of H.G. Wells and Margaret Sanger, both [much like Reinhardt Eugen Tristan Heydrich] proponents of population control and eugenics.” ─ The Revolt Against the Masses, copyright © 2013 by Fred Siegel, Encounter Books, Page 164.
