Exploit the Earth or die. Itâ€™s not a threat. Itâ€™s a fact. Either man takes the Earthâ€™s raw materialsâ€”such as trees, petroleum, aluminum, and atomsâ€”and transforms them into the requirements of his life, or he dies. To live, man must produce the goods on which his life depends; he must produce homes, automobiles, computers, electricity, and the like; he must seize nature and use it to his advantage. There is no escaping this fact. Even the allegedly â€œnobleâ€ savage must pick or perish. Indeed, even if a person produces nothing, insofar as he remains alive he indirectly exploits the Earth by parasitically surviving off the exploitative efforts of others.
The fact annoys some people. But it shouldnâ€™t: Hence our â€œExploit the Earth or Dieâ€ campaign.
Place a link on your blog or website; wear an EED T-shirt; drink from an EED mug. The good guys will smile. The bad guys will snarl. And the battle for civilization and against â€œenvironmentalismâ€ will be brought to the fundamental alternative whereupon the matter ultimately must be decided: life or death.

*Update: I deleted a comment that was mere profanity. Please don't reduce the conversation to mere insults and profanity. I'm interested in hearing why this t-shirt is so inflammatory, and I'd like to hear something other than "Randians are fools" (or worse).
**I've closed the comments. Thanks for your thoughts everyone.
