"Exploit the Earth or Die" Merchandise

Exploit the Earth or die. It’s not a threat. It’s a fact. Either man takes the Earth’s raw materials—such as trees, petroleum, aluminum, and atoms—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 “noble” 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 shouldn’t: Hence our “Exploit the Earth or Die” 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 “environmentalism” 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.

The shirt's pretty funny. The comments from knee-jerkers who don't get it are even funnier. And the funniest thing of all is the idea that a t-shirt will actually make one bit of difference in the world.

whats amazing is that the idea that my desire to consume the earth's resources for my own end would inspire such comments, in fact to go so far as to have people compare me to a cancer ... where is the tollerance ?

I love the shirt and just love the comments on this site. Nothing like watching smug environmentalist quake a little. Having an informed opinion as opposed to mindless passion is so difficult for the 'true believers'.

I'm not a Randian, but I love to see them mix it up with the other wackos.
