Victims of Communism, victim of capitalism

No political cartoonist outrages right-wingers more than Ted Rall, but that’s because he has less than zero respect for militarism, which drives the so-called conservatives wild.

Rall also has had the nerve to criticize victims and victims groups, and appear on right-wing talk shows, and be a member of Generation X. I don’t always agree with him, but I admire his fearlessness.

He doesn’t often focus on environmental topics, so when he does, it’s worth noting. In this one, he points out a principal flaw in our belief in the ever-expanding economy. Today capitalism is a virtual religion, especially on the right, but in a couple of generations, it’s quite possible that we will look back at capitalism as the ideology that ruined our climate. How might we view it then?
