Nice to Get The Guardian On Board

You never know, perhaps there actually is a real liberal buried somewhere in The Guardian:

It is only by replacing narrow self-interest with the enlightened variety, that humans stand any chance of dealing with climate change.

Well quite, enlightened self interest being what Adam Smith was talking about two centuries and more ago. So we\’re off on the path of creating a classically liberal state, where we all act out of enlightened self interest, are we? Of course we hope so, just odd to see the rallying cry come from The G.

  1. I have a feeling that the G’s brand of enlightened self-interest is them telling “enlightening” us and then insisting that someone legislates in our “interest” (especially as regards climate change).

  2. Nothing seems to be easier than seeing someone whom you can help but not helping.
    I suggest we start giving it a try. Give love to the ones that need it.
    God will appreciate it.
