Socialism Now to Be Called “Sustainable Capitalism”

Update your Newspeak dictionaries. Comrade Al Gore has issued a decree that we are now to refer to eco-Marxism as “sustainable capitalism[1].”

Gore quotes moonbat icon Robert F. Kennedy to remind us that there are more important things that functional economies:

[T]he Gross National Product measures neither our wit nor our courage, neither our wisdom nor our learning, neither our compassion nor our devotion to country. It measures everything, in short, except that which makes life worthwhile.

It’s going to be hard to pursue the things that make life worthwhile when we have to spend most of the day waiting in line for government cheese after leftists have finished destroying the most successful economic system in the history of the world.

Gore makes a fist and gets ominous:

Business and markets cannot operate in isolation from society or the environment. … We must develop sustainable capitalism.

In other words, all private economic activity is the province of leftist bureaucrats, who will tell you they have a mandate to suppress it in the interests of saving the planet from the farcical global warming hoax.

With moonbats taking full control, our standard of living is headed directly toward Third-World levels. Somehow I doubt the polar bears will appreciate the sacrifice.

Gore et al.: green outside, red inside.
