The old saying from the North Of England goes “where there’s muck there’s brass” is subsequently read as “oil means wealth,” then gets transposed to “pollution equals productivity,” then, “squalor is good, noise is progress, speed is everything” & finally, triumphantly, we get…”ecocide cures poverty.” This is the impeccable logic of psychotic apes.
