At least one of the more amusing byproducts of all this is that the media will often tie itself into illogical pretzels trying to come to corporate/PC conclusions that are contrary to the facts that they themselves have just presented. It is all the more delicious when it is exemplified in a major news magazine’s cover story. In this case it is Newsweek’s, August, 2010, “The Best Country in the World is …” Throughout the piece Newsweek admits the obvious, that in general “smaller is better.” For one thing, you simply have more abundant natural resources per capita. But, wait, that will never do! We especially need to deal with those exciting populous nations that are newly “emerging”--and don’t you want to move there already?--and we find, you guessed it, Hooray Mexico! And what is one of the most wonderful features of that future garden spot? Well, it is one of the blessed nations that possess “a healthy birth rate.” What luck! No, I’m not making this up. Of course a cynic might say, “Yes, so healthy Mexico has to continually illegally export a Mississippi River of excess population into its northern neighbor.” Another spoil sport might add, “Yes, so healthy the southern region of the United States is being overwhelmed and swallowed up whole by it.”
But the most appropriate response might be just a calm shaking of the head in amused and fatalistic wonderment, watching the human comedy continue to unfold and replay itself again in the collapse of yet another advanced but self-deluded civilization … going, going … along with its innocent leafy environmental foundation that once made it all possible.
