Quote
For most of my adult life I’ve railed against “corporate capitalism”, “consumer capitalism” and “crony capitalism”. It took me a long time to see that the problem is not the adjective but the noun. -- George Monbiot

I'm happy to see George Monbiot finally gets it. He recently said, while addressing an Extinction Rebellion crowd, that we are a society of altruists ruled by psychopaths. He is right.


Timing is everything. I saw this Tweet by George Monbiot today:

If you are middle class, they call you a champagne socialist
If you are working class, they say it's the politics of envy
If you wear leather shoes, they call you a hypocrite
If you don't, they call you a hippy.
Everyone, apparently, is disqualified from challenging the system.
