David Suzuki and the foundation he founded like to project a caring, sharing image of themselves as guardians of the planet, and of the next generation, protecting the environment for the benefit of the children. But how does David Suzuki really view humanity? What does he say when he’s with friends, and not in an interview for publication?
A fascinating clip from 1972 has surfaced, giving us a searing insight into how Suzuki really views humanity, and it’s not a pleasant picture. In the clip, Suzuki can be heard detailing his world view that people are “maggots” that “defecate all over the environment”. Far from viewing children and the next children as a repository of hope and change, as he’s argued in published interviews, he Suzuki explains he sees babies as just like maggots that hatch from the egg, crawl out of the womb and then crawl around like maggots simply eating and defecating all over the environment.
A young woman can be heard murmuring in agreement ” . . . the world is overrun with maggots”, to which Suzuki nods in agreement and carries on.
