SMUG AND SATISFIED: “For these people, we are always eco-sinners in the hands of an angry Gaia.”
Don’t discount the smug satisfaction the eco-fascist takes in knowing he’s coerced entire cities to ban shopping bags, begin mandatory composting and in bankrupting entire industries, coupled with the Gnostic belief that he can see the world more clearly than those non-believers, whom he views as the equivalent of Holocaust deniers, if not something even worse. All that crony corporatism means he’s got his — and all the new laws he’s passed are the equivalent of raising the drawbridge up behind him. Not to mention all the exciting cocktail parties with Leonardo, Al, Barry, and the rest of the (private) jet-set in Paris, Davos, and Bali. Sure it’s all nihilism — but nobody said that nihilism couldn’t be awfully swank as well.
And hypocrites to boot....
