Edward Abbey
“In fact, I suspect that our only hope is disaster. Cruel tho' it is to say it, there has got to be a vast die-off in the human population -- likely including us and our families -- before the survivors find themselves in a world where a new and humble and 'religious' adaptation with nature is possible.
Disaster is not necessary; the better world could be achieved through reason and common sense and a sense of fellowship -- but most of the present human world is dead set against us. Thus I was forced to the disagreeable resolutions (not solutions) which I attempted to sketch out in the novel 'Good News.' The title is of course deliberately ambiguous.”
Edward Abbey, Postcards from Ed: Dispatches and Salvos from an American Iconoclast

“One upshot of all this is that there is a simple way to produce fewer leftists. Raise children who are grateful in general, and grateful to be an American in particular, or grateful to be the citizen of any decent country, who don't complain much, who learn to handle losing, and who are guided by values, not feelings. In other words, teach them how to be happy adults. That, more than any one other thing will produce fewer leftists, and a better world. Because the happy make the world better and the unhappy make it worse.”
Dennis Prager, Still the Best Hope: Why the World Needs American Values to Triumph
