Will commented, 

"Recently, the National Association of Scholars, a wonderful outfit of right-minded, and, therefore, small, group of academics published a wonderful report that you all should read..." 

"The doctrine of sustainability, as the word implies, postulates that we live in a world of grinding scarcity and increasing fragility and therefore that we live in a world that requires total control and a permanent crisis."

"...if you can control the promptings of the social environment, you can therefore...control minds."
