I've been inactive for a bit; some of that due to lots of new busyness at work and some just writers' block. But I'm still here. Watching. Watching and judging
I noticed this
story a while ago but due to my slump, Myrhaf got to commenting on it before I did. And he did such a good job of it that I don't really have anything to add, besides some minor bragging that I drive a CO2-spewing muscle car. I mean, after all, the whole premise of the "study" was fairly obvious
to anyone who knows about both cars and environmentalists.Here
is a mainstream news source that seems to be picking up on what the Greens are all about:
Indeed they do sound like they have a basic opposition to prosperity, Mr. Levin. In fact, I would have to say that's an understatement
bordering on the ridiculous. The harping about clean air and water is entirely a smokescreen; the environmentalists are in fact about nothing else
than a basic and fundamental opposition to human prosperity.
In addition, the similarity noticed to anti-capitalist, anti-consumption fanatics is no coincidence. They are all a part of the same family of leftist/nihilist philosophies who share the fundamental belief that man is evil and his prosperity is "selfish" and therefore immoral. The longer the world continues to kid itself and believe the delusion that these philosophies "don't mean it" and aren't in fact the man-hating nihilists that they really are, the more destruction they will wreak upon us.
Because they won't stop at Ferraris. They're playing for keeps and will keep going until they can dismantle all of civilization, returning man to disease-wracked, mud-grubbing pre-industrial poverty and death. And the really serious ones won't stop until man has caught the "right virus
" and ceased to exist altogether.
