Julia Roberts voicing Mother Nature for an “environmentalist” group — what could go wrong?
Basically, the things you’d expect. If you love having Aaron Sorkin write socialist morality fables for you, this depiction of Mother Nature will be right up your alley. That unnamed Thing lurking just off-screen, that walking strawman being framed for condemnation and ritual sacrifice? That’s YOU, you enemy of the people! You enemy of the environment, of progress, of all that’s right and holy and anti-bourgeois (but anti-bourgeois in a way that’s so totally légère and soignée that it hurts to laugh as hard as one laughs at the conservaprole trolls who take it all so seriously). Because Mother Nature so doesn’t care. !!! Ha. If Mother Nature and the cool crowd could be bothered, you’d have to take that, you, you — tartar-toothed homo moronicus!
Mother Nature’s summa theologica:
“I have fed species greater than you and I have starved species greater than you.”
She’s basically a 13-year-old tsunami-thrower writing in a slam book. Anthropomorphizing nature: for five thousand years and counting, the best way to reveal how primitive your intellect really is.
