Here's a quote from Sewer, Gas & Electric: the Public Works Trilogy, a futuristic novel by Matt Ruff that kind of cracked me up:
"He'd drifted into environmental activism in the early Oughts, drawn by a genuine concern for the planet but also--he tried always to be honest about this point--by an antisocial streak that badly needed an outlet. Gunther Lapp had raised Philo to be a pacifist, and he would always abhor the taking of life, but once out in the world he discovered he had no corresponding qualms about gross property damage. As he learned working for Earth First! and the Ned Ludd Society, there was nothing quite so satisfying as a morally justified act of vandalism."
Atlantic Monthly Press, 1997. p. 29-30.
I include quotes from stuff I read in my annual zine, but I thought some folks other than the 300 or so readers of the Lower East Side Librarian Winter Solstice Shout Out might be interested.
