C4SS Feed 44 presents Zoë Little’s “The Planet vs The State” read by Stephen Ledger and edited by Nick Ford.
As a self-proclaimed environmentalist, I sincerely wish that it were somehow possible to entrust the protection of the environment to some perfect and benevolent central power that could magically fix all our problems by passing a bunch of laws or something. Unfortunately, the existence and efficacy of such a body is equally unfathomable to congress voting to reduce their own salaries.
Now, I’m not claiming that our environmental woes would disappear in a free society, but at least we could begin to undo the damage already done by the state.
You might be thinking, “It’s not the government ruining our natural resources, it’s the evil corporations.” While TransCanada, Tyson and Monsanto may be the boots on the ground of environmental degradation, one must consider how these players came to be so damn evil.
