There are a few memes that I have recognized in liberal circles.
1. Jealousy. They often state facts as they indicate something bad, but in reality it is just jealousy. What difference does it make that Bill Gates has 10 billion, 20,30,40,50 billion? His money is not stolen out of your pocket.
2. Damned if you do and damned if you don't. They manage to be able to complain about both sides of an issue but not even state which might be the best plan of action.
Case in point:
Balance of solar power
In the sunny desert of Nevada, two companies are planning an 18-megawatt solar photovoltaic power plant -- the biggest such project in the world, like, ever. The biggest purchaser? The military. Cause let's face it: Even when the oil runs out, we're still gonna want to kill people. Grist
So since the military is doing something good for the environment it gets criticized. If they had not done anything, then environmentalist would complain that the "military industial complex" is doing nothing to propect the enviroment.
I guess they think the solution is no military, but sorry that is not a solution and when reality is in play not 1% of US citizens would want no defense.
So instead of praising that the military is purchasing solar plants, they criticize the purposes of a military. Of course the more the market purchases such tehnology the more likely that per unit prices will drop and make many projects more feasible.
