Green Nazis? Surely not
Der Spiegel is all of a dither. Apparently, Greenism and Environmentalism, those all-purpose left-wing ideologies are "being hijacked" by the Neo-Nazis, commonly referred to by the media as extreme right-wing. Well, I never. Anyone would think that this is unprecedented; that there was not extreme green environmentalism coupled with a romantic worship of the soil and an equally romantic opposition to industrialization and machinery among the Nazis of yore. In fact, it was the Communists who, in their worship of industrialization and hatred of the peasantry, despised pointless adoration of nature. What goes around, comes around.
