Yet another weird SF fan


I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Who Is Really behind the “Re-wilding” of America?

According to Instapundit:

Add to this the new ruralism created by boomers cashing out their urban/suburban homes (via NewsAlert) and you may have the beginnings of a rural renaissance. At least if someone can do something about the mountain lions. That's been a problem before. And I can't recommend David Baron's book, The Beast in the Garden: The True Story of a Predator's Deadly Return to Suburban America highly enough. And in light of the above, predator control might even turn out to have an important impact on rural economic development. Nobody's going to want to settle in a place where they're worried about kids being eaten.

Blink … Blink … That's it!

It should be obvious that the “re-wilding” of America is a conspiracy by urban real-estate dealers for the purpose of rendering rural and exurban areas uninhabitable. This won't apply in urban areas. Any lion that tried walking around downtown Manhattan would be shot by the drug dealers.
