Modern Misanthropes

First, an example of proletarian solidarity – from the Socialist Worker letters page:

It’s very hard to sympathise with Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) officials threatened with redundancy…

I can’t feel anything except a degree of schadenfreude for those petty-bourgeois tyrants and bullies, who may themselves have to go cap in hand to a smug little reactionary of their own.

And an even more depressing lack of humanity from Greenpeace

Watch it and weep.

Do they really expect viewers to applaud the ostracising of co-workers, spitting in their tea etc because they drive a glorified people carrier?

And they wonder why the term ‘green fascism’ has a certain purchase.
