Voltaire's Disdain

by Don Boudreaux on May 21, 2007

in Environment, Seen and Unseen

Here’s a letter of mine that appears in today’s edition of the Wall Street Journal:

I share James Lange’s
disgust at environmentalists who relentlessly complain that corporate
contributions to environmental causes are inadequate (Letters, May 14). In his poem "An Apology for Luxury," Voltaire addressed such shrill ingrates:

For thee the world at work has been / That thou at ease might vent thy spleen.
