No, Martin, banality is not solely an attribute of the Greens.  But
unfortunately you seem to have a little trouble accepting the seriousness
of the contributions that others are making to this discussion.

I've worked with the Greens in Australia, both in electoral and
non-electoral campaigns.  In fact, I was a member of one of their
predecessor organisations - one of those, in fact, from which the liberal
Greens split rather than continue to work with dirty communists.  (Yes,
that's irony, or something of the sort.)

Yes, the Greens are liberals, by any definition which is not entirely
tautological.  That doesn't mean they aren't interesting.
