Considering the way that going green is joined at the hip with socialism, one might think they are inseparable. Yet, history proves just the opposite.
When the Berlin wall came down, one of the biggest surprises about East Berlin was the tragic level of ecology in the east. West Berlin: Freedom, good economy and clean. East Berlin:suffering, failed economy and ecological disaster.
Moreover, had the socialist had their way and West Berlin were swallowed up by the east it would have become as filthy as the east. As it was the east prospered as the west. Even more, it has become much cleaner.
Let us go down the list. The Soviets, the Chinese, Venezuelan, and, oh, yes. Let’s not forget The People’s Republic of California, which actually was pretty nice when it was in the hands of Republicans. All of these shows what happens to the ecology when the socialist take the helm.
So, maybe socialism and going green aren’t nearly as compatible as some would like us think.
