~How To Alienate Yourself :: Environmentalism

Environmentalism is the new spirituality.

Compare and contrast:

“I’m not a religious person.  I’m a spiritual person.”

“I’m not a hippie.  I’m an environmentalist.”

Discuss:

Spirituality is the phenomenon whereby people profess to believe in a higher power, which can be connected with through any means possible.  Methods may include meditation, chanting, fasting or feeding off of crystal energy.

Environmentalism is the phenomenon whereby people profess to believe in the positive change one person can make on the harmful impact of our species on our natural surroundings.  Change can occur through recycling, composting, commuting and eating vegetables grown only on their apartment windowsills.

In both situations, disdain may be felt for people not currently in the same mindset.  Spiritualists may scoff at Catholics, claiming that their concept of Hell is a doctrine of fear.  Environmentalists may scoff at those who drive impractical vehicles, claiming that their concept of Western living is bringing about Hell on earth.

Practical Use:

Claim to be either one with great enthusiasm.  Extra points go to those who claim to be both.  Grand prize goes to those who claim to be both and evidence hypocrisy easily.
