We’re going to get lectured a lot-probably by many of the same twenty-five year olds who have invested heavily in home decor featuring presidential power porn-on how the failure of this or that is due to a failure of all 300 million of us to come together like a bunch of Amish at a barn-raising. It will of course be the fault of the ideologues who think the Green Economy Five Year Plan is moronic, not a reflection of the diverse range of opinion in a free society, and certainly not that fact the Green Economy Five Year Plan will in fact be moronic.
A lot of readers have noticed my less-than-sunny outlook and subtly suggested that I must be off my meds. In those circumstances, it’s reassuring to read other perspectives of pessimistic paranoia.
