Always always the same answer...

A unified theory of left-wing causes | Power Line:

Steven Den Beste comments on Steve Hayward's population bomb post:

...Isn't it interesting that no matter what the current global crisis is, according to leftists, the solution is always the same: a benevolent world dictatorship of the enlightened elite, and mass transfer of wealth from rich nations to poor nations.

That's what they want to do about global warming. It's what they wanted to do about overpopulation. It's what they wanted to do about endangered species....

And they will be proposing the the same solution for global cooling and underpopulation. And for the population explosion of Polar Bears.

I remember when Den Beste was one of the top bloggers in the world. Or at least our corner of it. Health problems caused him to retire, but he still is heard from now and then.

I think make a very good point about how this isn't even so much about power, or political philosophy, but indulgence. That's why I say these people aren't even sufficiently politically mature to make it up to nihilist.
