Andrew Klavan's politically-incorrect take
Link via Transterrestrial Musings
. Recalling this old post of mine
, I left this comment:
This brings to mind an old news item. A few celebs including Cameron Diaz had visited a poverty-stricken Nepalese village. Diaz had remarked about how the villagers "continue to live in harmony with the world around them."
It never occurs to these people that a goodly part of nature is at war with us. Unsanitary homes and drinking water supplies are not harmony, they are capitulation to the jackboot of nature. At the time, life expectancy in Nepal was 59 years; now it’s 68, so the country is
doing something right. (Google charts that statistic from 1960 forward.
Next Earth Day someone should show up at an event protesting against nature, with “Stand up against the oppressor” signs.
