The Meaning of Being “Green”

Two differences between “Lockdowns” and “The Green New Deal” are that under “The Green New Deal” you won’t have gas for your car if you want to drive somewhere. And you won’t have electricity for your TV.

But that’s alright. The purpose of your life is not your personal enjoyment, but higher, collective goods, such as “flattening the curve” and holding down the CO2 content of the atmosphere, say collectivists.

In fact, believe the Green New Dealers, the world would be a better place if a few billions of you weren’t alive in the first place, because then you’d cause much less CO2 getting into the atmosphere, and thus the planet would be a better, healthier place.


At least so say the implicitly homicidal maniacs who comprise the Green movement and are never censured for expressing this belief.
