Nothing is sacred to these capitalist pigs. One doesn’t have to be religious to regard the Earth’s beauty in nature as sacred. Not all who participate gainfully in capitalism are pigs. But those who value the attainment of great wealth and its concomitant power over everything else certainly are just that, capitalist pigs. Apologies to pigs.
