Michael Shellenberger is a narcisst

Hey Glen. I think Elon Misk is bad g- BECAUSE HE IS A BAD F-ING guy Seems! Full stop lol. It’s also silly thought to label peeps who want to enable civilization to improve and evolve as ‘Anti - Civilization’. But Glen, you do LOVE your labels. . .

LivingFreeinSoCo ,

God speed your healing!

Wishing your great relief from a pain I know all to well. Looking forward to hearing from you soon! Your program has broadened my horizons. Thank you!
