One annoying thing about being a leftie these days is that people always assume you’re an environmentalist. Thanks to a new breed of leftist who doesn’t know his Marx from his elbow, in recent years being on the left has come to mean being pro-state, anti-freedom of speech (it hurts people!), in love with welfarism (despite the harm it does to the poorest in society), and also green, eco-friendly, a tree-hugging loather of unchecked economic growth. Right-wingers love big cars and carbon; left-wingers love rainforests and dolphins – that’s the infantile script promoted by many of the red-turned-green leftists who make up what passes for modern-day radicalism.
There’s nothing left-wing about being green
Environmentalism is a cover for communism? Do me a favour.
