Liberals and Conservation

Can you think of a liberal who doesn’t want conservation as it concerns the environment and energy? You know: reduce, reuse, recycle, and all that.

Within reason, such ideas are all well and good…within reason. But when the cost exceeds the benefit, such proposals are no longer within reason.

However, can you think of a liberal who is in favor of conservation as it pertains to government?

Instead—as it pertains to liberals and government—the answer to the question, any question, is the opposite of conversation. The answer is always more: more government, more rules, more bureaucracy, more entitlements, more “rights.” More is the left’s version of Drill, Baby, Drill.

In the liberal mind, even a reduction in the rate of growth is a reduction and must be fought fang and claw. Little wonder we never close the deal on actual reductions in the size, cost, and scope of government even as this Leviathan endangers our very way of life.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
