David Brooks has written a fine piece on Al Gore’s strange world view. He writes that
“Gore seems to have come up with a theory that the upper, logical mind sits on top of, and should master, the primitive and more emotional mind below. He thinks this can be done through a technical process that minimizes information flow to the lower brain and maximizes information flow to the higher brain.”
More troubling then his interest in the internet is the perverse value system espoused by Al Gore & his fellow environmentalists. It is wrong to sacrifice the jobs of thousands of hard working Americans just to save a few butterflies, birds or whales.
