Low-Flow Toilet Disaster


Paul's picture

Sometimes the libertarians like to show off their conservative roots by making fun of anything having to do with environmentalism. Recycling is another frequent scapegoat.

The problem is not with people who want to treat the planet well (even if they occasionally make a mistake on how best to do that - shame on them for not being perfect!) The problem is using coercion to advance that end.

Personally, this mean streak libertarians have, wanting to make fun of environmentalism, looks awfully counterproductive to me. We should always zero in on the coercion with our criticism, and stop impugning motives or intelligence of others.
