George Carlin, "The Planet Is Fine" ... We're so self-important. So self-important. Everybody's going to save something now. "Save the trees, save the bees, save the whales, save those snails." And the greatest arrogance of all: save the planet. What? Are these fu--ing people kidding me? Save the planet, we don't even know how to take care of ourselves yet. We haven't learned how to care for one another, we're gonna save the fu--ing planet? – George Carlin
But a funny thing happened to George Carlin: He grew up. The YouTube clips available regarding George Carlin's later performances make it clear he had become a fierce critic of what we would call the power elite.
