The New Environmentalism – Individuals and Property Rights

Tisha Casida hits it out of the park:
There are several generations of people who have been taught about recycling and conservation. My grandmother recycles her newspapers and cans, and conserves everything she uses, including water, heat, and electricity. The ‘Millennials’ as they are sometimes referred to, have also been taught about this – often called “sustainability”, and unfortunately often focusing on using the force of government to “make” people behave in ways that conserve our resources. Of course, government force in itself is unsustainable for free people, because force stops independence, liberty, and taking personal responsibility – all of which make a free market work, and allows for people to be liberated enough to make movements in their own lives and in their communities and countries.
