"It's all connected, you see?"
Thousands of anti-globalization protesters marched Saturday on the UN's World Summit on Sustainable Development, supporting land redistribution, debt forgiveness, and full employment, and denouncing free trade, privatization, and Israel.

The tendency to see everything one opposes politically as being somehow connected reminds of me of those occult-minded people who throw everything 'esoteric' (astrology, the Nasca lines, crop-circles, poltergeists, ESP, etc.) into one big explanatory bag. This is how socialism turned into environmentalism, and bin Laden was turned into an anti-capitalist protester.
