    wrecking the potable water and arable land on the planet in short order.

    Sure once I was young and impulsive, I wore every conceivable pin. Even went to socialist meetings, learned all the old union hymns. Ah, but I've grown older and wiser. And that's why I'm turning you in. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u52Oz-54VYw

      Although I would add that communism as practiced in the 20th century was pretty good at wrecking the environment too. But communism is a non-issue now. China is an authoritarian capitalist state. There are no real communist states of influence out there.

        Communism was way too entranced with the Big Dirty Industrial Factory System.  But I guess everybody was back then.
