I've Been Saying Forever That This Is What Your Hardcore Lefties Think

What's sad is that these hardcore lefties aren't so far from the center left anymore; imagine, if you can, Truman or Kennedy or Johnson supporting the Occupy types as Obama has. I fear that this kind of idiocy will become mainstream before too long:
A renowned University of California-Riverside professor recently advised students to save Mother Earth, eat vegetarian, only have 1.5 kids - two at the most – take up social justice causes, and “lower your standard of living.”

Biology Professor Richard Cardullo – recently tapped by several federal agencies to assist with redeveloping how college students across the nation study life science – offered the advice to a room full of middle school students as part of the university’s online science lecture series, recorded on the campus earlier this year. A video of his talk is posted on YouTube.
I'm reminded of the following quote:
"A civilization that feels guilty for everything it is and does will lack the energy and conviction to defend itself."
--French writer Jean Francois Revel
