    What was telling was that the left-winger environmentalist knows that he was a loser going in. He knew he wasn’t going to be good at it.

    I firmly believe there are natural born losers that come to grips they will never succeed in a capitalist society. They substitute that harsh feeling of their own brutal honesty by clinging to the hope of a socialist state one day. Obviously most left-wingers don’t feel this way or for that matter aren’t productive citizens but this documentary has convinced me there is a good chunnk of left-wingers that do feel this way.
