Go here to read the rest. One of the irritating features of contemporary life is the attempt to silence debate on policy questions by seizing an alleged moral high ground. As Mr. Michaels demonstrates, in regard to most policy questions there are competing moral issues involved. You want a pristine environment and wish to limit development? The poor will end up footing most of the bill. Hey poor people in the Third World, do not follow our path to development if the environment is harmed. Producing a better environment will require limiting freedom and just not for big corporations. Policy questions usually involve tradeoffs, and if morality is invoked, then let all the moral issues that arise from such tradeoffs be addressed, and not just those favored by the chattering classes.
