We live in the best of all possible worlds (cause its the only one we have)Thomas Szasz
has a (good) theory that we all need something to worry about. This may or may not be true or true at different levels depending, or could be called creative tension or whatever else. Just like stereotypes and rumors. Isnt there alot of (but no absolute) truth
to the things we say
Environmentalists of course worry about the environment. And of course some environmentalists
are 'leftists' because they want to take money from some people and give it to causes they believe in, in of course this case, the environment. And to put this redristribution
ahead of the rights of others to keep the fruits of their labor
. This takes form in asking the government to do things against "polluters". (But dont we all pollute and is not repeting the obvious or exagerating the truth pollution as well?).
Ok then, well it seems like now the market is helping to solve the problem of regulation oftentimes keeping the prices of resources
too cheap which then leads to an over depletion of these resources. Point is people are asking for factories that dont pollute or waste water and or energy. Companies are hearing the demand (and reacting to the high price of oil), witness Frito Frtito Lay's
factory. Don't worry about it and be sure to buy their potato chips if you like the idea, and well, like potato chips.
