The "leakage of reality from American life" is too kind. There is a certain kind of arrogance in the "fixers" and "tinkerers" who want to play their games on a national scale. When informed of the potential downsides to their plans, they just deny, when what they really feel is that the downsides are acceptable for the upsides their plans will bring. Most rational people would not agree with the plans when they are framed as the tradeoffs they actually is.

President: a democrat
Senate: Democrat dominated
House of Reps: Democrat dominated
SCOTUS: Totally irrelevant as they have no enforcement ability.

Welcome to the brave new world of the fairy wand. We wish it, we wave the wand, and we make it so.

Could Greenpeace be our next bubble? Is Greenpeace a treatment of the symptom which serves only to take focus off the ultimate cause further up the pipe? Have humans been distracted from addressing our lack of more universal population prevention, our lack of proper population shrinkage? When we join the bandwagon of green hoof-print and renewable energy do we unwittingly prolong the blindness towards population bomb? What will wake us from our amblyopia? SwineH1N1? HIV/AIDS? Ebola virus? Malaria? Giant Squid? Giant Alligators? Nuclear Holy War? Holy Famine?

Naaaaaai

We can easily support another 44 billion starving itching oozing people. We can do it. Just use high tech and macroeconomics.

I must dissent. George Will is very often worth reading. But certainly not always.
