After that, Julie Burchill felt like sweet reason. In Not in my Name, her and Chas Newkey-Burden\’s spirited attack on modern hypocrisy, she declared: \’Green is the first sociopolitical movement in which every single leader and spokesperson is filthy rich – they make the Conservative party look like the Jarrow marchers.\’
With Lord Melchett, the Right Honourable Jonathon Porritt, George Monbiot and Zac Goldsmith, as well as Prince Charles, all holding prominent positions, the green movement is indeed where the concerned children of the upper class fled when the power of the House of Lords diminished.
Isn\’t Porritt a baronet as well?
However, one small error:
Europe\’s prejudices wouldn\’t matter if the world\’s population weren\’t shooting up, taking food prices with it. The only solutions are a global socialist revolution to redistribute wealth (unlikely) or farmers using new technologies to grow more food.
Why would a socialist revolution and the subsequent redistribution of wealth lower food prices? Still got the same number of people, same amount of food, not changed the supply nor the demand there, have we?
Or is it just that from historical evidence socialist revolutions end up killing off tens of millions, hundreds of millions of people and thus we\’ll have reduced demand?
