  •  Central "anything" is a high fastball... (6+ / 0-)

    ...over the middle of the plate for those who oppose a strong activist government that executes...well, you name it: Health Care, Redistribution of Income and Wealth, Basic Research, Building Codes, Air and Water standards, etc.

    The specter of "Big, Evil Government controlling our lives" far too often obscures the current, functioning reality: a very small number of Private Sector entities who are for all intents and purposes controlling our lives with frighteningly few protections.

    Of course, Mitt Romney calls this "Capitalism"...oh, wait: it's now "Free Enterprise". Forgot to check the most recent Luntz memo.

    •  Let them squawk! (7+ / 0-)

      There is a certain population out there, they are never going to agree, they are never going to help.  They'll say whatever they are going to say, no matter what.  

      I'm done with what is in effect:

      Well, I was going to do something important to help save the planet today, but I was afraid somebody would call me bad names, so I didn't.

      We shall not participate in our own destruction.

    •  don't have to say "central" (0+ / 0-)

      I don't like "central" either.

      As the world warms, the reigning ideology that tells us it’s everyone for themselves, that victims deserve their fate, that we can master nature, will take us to a very cold place indeed - Naomi Klein
