Happy Earth Day… and Lenin Day

Question: What do Earth Day and Vladimir Lenin’s birthday have in common? Answer: they both reoccur every year on April 22. Coincidence?

How about this? The first Earth Day took place April 22, 1970. The centennial of Lenin’s birth took place April 22, 1970. Needless to say, the Lenin centenary was a huge deal to the communist movement, which goes bonkers over dates and memorials to its icons.

Here are more striking similarities: Vladimir Lenin and the communist and environmental movements all remonstrated against capitalism, profits, corporations, industry, free markets, the West.

Here’s another: When the communist movement imploded in the late 1980s, many of its disciples just happened to join… yep, you guessed it: the environmental movement.

Let’s back up and start from the beginning.

  1. So,Earth Day appeared on Lenins 100 birthdate!
    This is remarkable, so Communism lives on in anti-capitalism!
    I used to call it Pantheist Day, but maybe I should rename it Atheist Day, in honor of Vladimir Lenin!

    Are we supposed to have Dominion over the earth, as God’s creation? We have God the Father, the Son of God, and the Holy Spirit (The Holy Trinity) We do NOT worship the Earth!
