A voice of sanity amid moral and intellectual meltdown

David Warren. "Fukushima"
Ideologues (environmentalist and other) prey on human credulity by comparing real things, not with alternative real things, but with absolute conditions in some paradise of their imagination. That is why, incidentally, religion is so important in politics. It provides a buttress to sanity, against utopian dreaming. For those who recognize a kingdom not of this world are less apt to confuse earth with heaven. Or hell, for that matter.
