Star War’s Director Surrenders to Green Agenda

By Brian Sussman, author, Eco-Tyranny

After 25 years of battling environmentalists, Star Wars filmmaker George Lucas has retreated from plans to construct a beautiful mission-style movie-making mansion on thousands of acres of land he owns in Marin County, California, twenty miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The people of Marin are proud of their liberalism and adherence to the green agenda. The community is extremely upscale and home to many rock stars and Hollywood-types. One would think the inhabitants of this hippie and yuppie paradise would be thrilled to have George Lucas’ business located in their backyard, but not so.  His purposes, they contend, would disturb nature, and that’s a clear no-no in Marin.

Since 1995, a gaggle of rabid eco-interests have relentlessly attacked the billionaire film magnate, whose productions ushered in the digital arts age, over his plans for a production complex that would house Lucasfilm, Industrial Light and Magic, and LucasArts, all beneath one roof.

Initially Lucas wanted to build a 450,000 square foot facility, discreetly tucked away within the privacy of thousands of acres of his personal property.  However, the greens immediately began holding him as an eco-hostage.  In return for allowing his proposal to move forward Lucas would have to agree to restore creeks on his land and set aside 2,500 acres of open space (over the years Lucas has been pressured to preserve more than 5,000 acres of property in the region).  Lucas generously agreed and the Marin County Board of Supervisors approved his project.

However, the penance the environmentalists wanted Lucas to pay was simply a green ruse.  What they really desired was for the entire plan to be hurled into another galaxy far, far away.

At this point, Lucas cut a deal with San Francisco to use the former Presidio military base, overlooking the Golden Gate, to establish his world-renowned production facilities. He’s been there ever since, but in the meantime, continued to work on building a state-of-the-art campus on his land in Marin.

Finally, two weeks ago, the county Supervisors gave the Star Wars creator the thumbs up to build his dream complex, though it’s size was to be reduced by nearly half and another green deed would have to be carried out by Lucas: fund a county-wide climate change action agenda.  Lucas was ready to close the deal, when officials moved to provide the opposition one last opportunity to state their case as to why the project should not be allowed.

When the eco-warriors showed up at the County Hall with lawyers and reams of paperwork last week, George Lucas decided to finally surrender.

“We have several opportunities to build the production stages in communities that see us as a creative asset, not as an evil empire,” stated a letter from George Lucas’ property company. “The residents [surrounding the property] have fought this project for 25 years, and enough is enough. Marin is a bedroom community and is committed to building subdivisions, not business.”

However, before withdrawing, Lucas unfurled his light saber one last time, shocking everyone into reality; the letter continued, “The land will revert back to its original use for residential housing. We hope we will be able to find a developer who will be interested in low income housing since it is scarce in Marin.”

Touché.

Lucas’s story illustrates an important fact: the environmentalists are incredibly longsuffering when it comes to undermining personal property rights which—like Marx and Engels—is the number one goal of their agenda.  Once they have selected a target, they will unrelentingly wear out those involved through, protests, lawsuits, and green blackmail schemes.  Their plans and purposes are not in keeping with liberty, but instead, with eco-tyranny.

George Lucas is their latest victim.

    Thanks Brian for writing this. Hopefully the liberals will stay in California when all the jobs are gone and not continue to infect the US with their politics like they have in OR, WA, and CO.

    A very sad day for Lucas and for Marin.
    The Marinites are behaving like spoiled children demanding that which would do them utter harm.
    Many years ago (1982?) I had the opportunity to do some sub-contracting (truck and equipment repair) work at Lucas’ ranch.
    It amazed me what Lucas did building the complex he used at the time.
    For the era, the complex was huge and could accommodate literally hundreds of employees, actors, support crews caterers &tc. Yet, there was nary a car visible as ALL parking was underground. All of his ancillary support was either hidden or used the natural terrain to its best advantage not only for the production company, but for the land itself.
    Even back then, Lucas was a real ecologist at heart and in practice.
    Lucas’ final smack in the cheek of Marin was to give them what they CLAIM to want; housing for the low income crowd. A group clearly in need in Marin.
    Yet the final cry from those complaining will be “this is fine and a great idea. You SHOULD do this. But not in MY backyard”.

    Most of the imported gas comes to Slovakia through the pipelines. This is also caused by historical factors. In the years 1945-89, the People’s Republic of Slovakia (bounded politically and economically with the Soviet Union) built the many gas pipelines that linked it with other countries of the soviet bloc, including Eastern Germany (which is important for present energy relations between Slovakia and Germany) to ensure maximal bounds between the USSR and PRP.
