A conundrum

One of the frustrating things about politics is how difficult it can be to distinguish actual liberalism from parodies of liberalism. Case in point: Is this Slate article, "Date Local: The Case Against Long-Distance Relationships" a clever satire of the environmentalist drive to subjugate every aspect of human life and slaughter them all on Gaia's altar, or is author Barron YoungSmith actually serious?

I vote that he's actually serious. There's nothing too absurd, and no detail about your life that environmentalists consider too small to attempt to change, control, or abolish. They'd regulate your bedtime and how many strokes you use to brush your teeth if they could link it to your "carbon footprint".
