of catastrophic upheaval that humanity advances most rapidly, and the
idea that economic progress can be achieved through the devastation of

ecological devastation, while neo-liberal policies have had results that
are not radically dissimilar in many countries. Yet while the Marxist
faith in central planning is now confined to a few dingy sects .....

But "dingy sect" is fighting talk.
