Idle speculation about the prospects for some kind of viable third-party movement are an evergreen — or as we learned 20 Friedman units ago — a “Geo-Green.”
“To be sure, Geo-Greenism is not a complete philosophy on par with liberalism or conservatism. But it can be paired with either of them to make them more relevant to the biggest challenges of our time. Even if Geo-Greenism couldn’t attract enough voters to win an election, it might attract a big enough following to frighten both Democrats and Republicans into finally doing the right things. ”
