Applications are now being accepted for The Cool Club. No expensive dues or actual accomplishments required, a minimalist approach will work well. A “Practice Kindness and Senseless Acts of Beauty” bumper sticker works, a cool multicolored ribbon on the lapel, a “live Strong” wrist ban or something similar, even a catchy slogan easily chanted (Black Lives Matter), all identifies you to the world as a caring individual, someone who wants a better kinder world but is not willing to sacrifice much to make it happen. And if you are a world leader (a progressive world leader who is easily swayed by fads or fearful of the PC police) then you throw wild expensive carbon emitting parties, all the while patting yourselves on the back at how enlighten and caring you are, more champagne;
Life is so much easier when things are settled, no more need to think about things, to scrutinize or weigh any more evidence, the science is settled, we did it, high fives all around. Now we can feel good about ourselves, our efforts (or lack thereof) will make our world a better place, yea for us.
OK, let the hand wringing begin.
