HATING RAW NATURE IS THE AMERICAN WAY | 2002-07-20
No European lives with real nature. There isn't any nature in Europe. Americans live with real nature and no people ever took to machines and anything else that helped them battle that Sweet Mama more than Americans did.
Life in nature, as people before Hobbes pointed out, is "nasty, brutish, and short."
In real terms, the political left is anti-technology. This is because they want problems solved by bureaucratic rationing and professors controlling and planning every aspect of our society. Now that socialism has been laughed out of existence as an efficient and fair system, "saving the environment" is the ticket to turning everything over to the planners.
Nothing leftists propose ever WORKS and the last thing the left wants is solutions that DO work. Today it is liberal "ethicists" who scream when anything is "agin' nachur."
