The opposite of "World Changing" is "eco-goth" - a subculture where one's social standing is largely set by the quality of one's gloom.

And, yes, this is a joke. But I do think it's worth pondering. It's not the whole story about ecological gloomeisters, but it hits a nerve, rather closely...

If they're goth, I want to be punk!

We should so register EcoGoth and run it as WorldChanging's parody sister site for all the partisan, depressing, what did you call it.... terribilisimo! stuff...

EGOGOTH...

WE'RE SCREWED, AND WE'RE BETTER THAN YOU, BECAUSE WE CAN FACE IT...

We'd get a lot of stuff out of our system, that's for sure....
