Surly Curmudgeon

   The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.

    Why I hate environmental politics

    Check out these two articles from the same freakin' newspaper (the Australian):

    September 26: Koalas face extinction, organisation warns

    September 27: Koalas sterilised to avoid cull [due to overpopulation]

    I'm basically speechless here. Apparently the critically endangered critters rebounded overnight. Literally.

    I like the photo in the second article, you can practically hr=ear the cute little koala screaming "NO DEAR GOD I NEED THAT I WANT IT MAKE HER STOP!"
