Eliminating Waste

This is my latest at the Partial Observer. Excerpt:
[T]he environment has some special considerations. How individuals spend their time and money is a question of individual liberty, but air, land, and water are needed by all of us. Pollution of air and water affects all of us. Monopolization of land with high rents can cause displacement of people. Consumption of non-renewable energy sources means there is less for ourselves and future generations. Cutting down on environmental pollution and waste is therefore a public concern. Since the Earth is the common birthright of all, no one has the absolute right to do what he pleases with it. Everyone has a stake in the health of the planet, even if a some people have no regard for it.
