It’s a modern form of human sacrifice.

The environmentalist mind is filled with visions of gurgling brooks and green fields.
All of which serve to hide the ugly truth is that its efforts often hurt citizens who are trying to protect their livelihood. IT'S a modern form of human sacrifice. Livelihoods are sacrificed to the gods of Nature because someone got the idea that the only way to assuage their guilt was to scapegoat innocent citizens. -- Had Enough Therapy?: Reactionary and Misanthropic

Your Say

I have pondered this for a very long time, even in, especially in, my misguided trendy liberal-wannabe phase. I think it is more about the desire to attain - things, status, academic elitism or at least the impression of having any or all of these - conflicting with the acknowledgment that there are no easy answers. So they just make up these crazy theories and philosophies that satisfy both. I don't think it is sacrifice - I think it is self-preservation, at any cost, crudly disguised as altruism. But they are only fooling themselves.
