Dedicato ai NO-TUTTO, breve elenco delle invenzioni del XX secolo

di Mario Giardini

uomo primitivoE’ dedicato, questo elenco, ai no TAV, no TRIV, no TAP, ai NO TUTTO. Vale a dire agli eco-talebani, agli eco-ballisti, agli eco-idealisti, agli eco-catastrofisti, agli eco-utili-idioti. A chi predica la decrescita felice. A chi non vuole estrarre il gas e il petrolio in Italia, ma ogni giorno cucina, va in macchina, usa il cellulare di ultima generazione, e impreca contro il mondo consumista.

Quello che segue è un piccolo elenco, largamente incompleto, delle invenzioni del XX secolo che hanno migliorato, prolungato, salvato, la vita di miliardi di esseri umani. Tra cui gli eco-eccetera di cui sopra.

Per coerenza, cari eco-eccetera, perché non fate a meno, ad esempio, dell’elettricità, delle medicine, degli strumenti medicali, dei computers?
