The War on Humans, an important documentary from Discovery Institute that explores the growing disparagement of the value of human beings, is now available for viewing. The ebook by the same title is also available for $1.99 (Kindle or Nook).

About the Ebook
The environmental movement has helped produce significant improvements in the world around us—from cleaner air to the preservation of natural wonders such as Yellowstone. But in recent years, environmental activists have arisen who regard humans as Public Enemy #1. In this provocative e-book, Wesley J. Smith exposes efforts by radical activists to reduce the human population by up to 90% and to grant legal rights to animals, plants, and Mother Earth. Smith argues that the ultimate victims of this misanthropic crusade will be the poorest and most vulnerable among us, and he urges us to defend both human dignity and the natural environment before it is too late.

Named by National Journal as one of America’s leading experts in the area of bioethics, attorney Wesley J. Smith is a Senior Fellow of Discovery Institute’s Center on Human Exceptionalism and the previous author of books such as A Rat is a Pig is a Dog is a Boy: The Human Cost of the Animal Rights Movement, Consumer’s Guide to a Brave New World, and Culture of Death: The Assault on Medical Ethics in America.

During the past two decades as I have taught college biology, physical science, and history/philosophy of science, I have noted many of the same cultural developments that Wesley analyzes in his book and documentary. What we think about the nature of humans (in relation to everything else) is of great importance, both for our well being, and for proper care of natural resources.

“The Darwinian view that human beings are not fundamentally unique supplies a foundation for much of the current anti-human activism,” explains John West of Discovery Institute. “Here is yet another area where the saying ‘ideas have consequences’ is true with a vengeance.” Watch the documentary to learn more.
