Sometimes Britain's George Monbiot is pointy-headed. That's making no bones about it, I know, but it's true. There are time when the material he comes out with is laughable in the extreme.
But I enjoyed his editorial today. It may be the reference to the Putney Debates -- as someone steeped in the heritage and traditions of Quakers and Levelers, the dissenting churches, Fabianism, and so on, even the American descendants of these, I always like it when a commentator is literate in this history.
The other part I liked was the bit about the "three B's."
