My Morning Laugh

What is so funny is that anyone who has had a run-in with a typical lefty, PriusPrick immediately relates to the conclusions of the study Do Green Products Make Us Better People. The short answer is, "No." The slightly longer answer is:

According to a study, when people feel they have been morally virtuous by saving the planet through their purchases of organic baby food, for example, it leads to the “licensing [of] selfish and morally questionable behaviour”, otherwise known as “moral balancing” or “compensatory ethics”.

Ah yes; that just made my day.
