Dean Koontz Praises The War on Humans

I was thrilled to receive novelist Dean Koontz’s endorsement for my just released e-book, The War on Humans.

TWOH exposes the increasing anti-humanism within the environmental movement, ranging from Deep Ecology, to Global Warming Hysteria, to Nature Rights/Ecocide,and radical Malthusianism. Blurbeth Koontz:

The War on Humans is terrific.

Within the world of benign and admirable conservation and ecological-awareness organizations, an irrational and misanthropic ideology has metastasized that in its fanaticism is as dangerous as the fascist and communist crusades of the past century. In The War on Humans, Wesley Smith succinctly exposes the “philosophy” and the aims of this movement, cites its deep unreason, and brilliantly extrapolates the horrors inevitable should it triumph.

I especially like the next part because I hope environmentalism will be restored to its once noble and human-benefiting purposes:

Sincere conservationists should be concerned if only because anti-humanist thinking has the power, in the social and economic destruction it would create, to discredit even those with humane and reasonable goals of conservation, preservation, clean water, and clean air.

Dean is a great pal, who believes in what I am trying to accomplish. He also wrote the introduction to my book on animal rights, A Rat is a Pig is a Dog is a Boy. Thanks Dean!

For anyone interested, the book is available in both Kindle and Nook applications.
