Recently there was an article posted as an opinion by Frosty Wooldridge regarding the relationship between human population growth and the degradation of the environment.  Perhaps this wasn\'t an article so much as it was a promotion of Frosty\'s book, but nevertheless the ideas are just as poisonous and overtly genocidal.    I am a recent graduate, with a degree in Political Economy and a sub-focus in Sustainability.  I\'m familiar with our situation globally with regard to human interaction with, dependency on, and misuse of the environment.  To keep things concise, our corporatocratic infatuation with profit over reason has prevented many of us from even conceiving of how this behavior is damaging to truly inhuman degrees, but even in the face of this the solution is NOT to blame the general population of the planet by asserting that they are more of a burden than they are capable of altering their behavior.  Frosty has been either misled or severely deluded by this strain of thought, and I fear that promoting his ideas will negatively reflect on what is otherwise a magnificent news source.   I am a freedom loving patriot, and would never demand the censorship of another individual.  However, perhaps there\'s a middle ground to be found here, and that lies in the subject tagline.  Normally Frosty\'s crap is listed as \'environment\' or something of the like.  What I propose is simply changing that mislabel to \'genocide+WAR\' only because those are the ideas he is supporting by arguing his eugenicist rhetoric.  I can be honest and admit I\'d be happy to never see his articles present on Freedom\'s Phoenix again, but that decision is not one I am in a place to make.    What, dear editor, should a compassionate soul like myself seek to do in such a situation?  Perhaps I should take up the keyboard in humanity\'s defense sooner than I had originally imagined and become a direct contributor.  What do you suggest?   Thank you for your consideration, patriotism, and for this excellent resource.   CS
