Hypothesis for a hidden agenda

Walter Williams has this one. (Nuremberg for global warming skeptics?)

The environmental extremists’ true agenda has little or nothing to do with climate change. Their true agenda is to find a means to control our lives. The kind of repressive human control, not to mention government-sanctioned mass murder, seen under communism has lost any measure of intellectual respectability. So people who want that kind of control must come up with a new name, and that new name is environmentalism.

The question is why communism and socialism are so attractive? Why this attraction overwhelms a rational assessment of their failures? Trying to figure out why people think the way they do is not an easy pursuit. It is much easier to be a good rocket scientist than a good psychologist, at least as far as understanding the subject matter goes.
