On Being a 21st-Century Peasant – Reason Magazine

Ron Bailey fisks an article in which a jounalist without scientific qualifications (not automatically unqualified — except the New Class uses this argument often against the rest of us) calls for humanity to return to a subsistence farming lifestyle: On Being a 21st-Century Peasant – Reason Magazine.

Commenter “John” nails it:

The other thing that amuses me is that we end up in some kind of subsistence peasant lifestyle either way. If we ignored these clowns, [yet] all of their gloom and doom predictions turned out to be true, we would end up in the same place that we would be in if we had followed their advice, except of course that they wouldn’t be in charge.

Exactly.
