When you wish you had a crystal ball, or not.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This post is the sixth of a series of fifteen posts about freedom during the COVID-19 crisis. These posts must be read in order, starting with the 6th post would make absolutely no sense to the reader. Enjoy reading and above all, enjoy reflecting.
Let’s therefore understand here that the principle of fairness is the first edict of individual freedom. There can be no individual freedom if everyone cannot enjoy the same level of freedom. Now, the apple tree example is an example at a time t, but what about a non-renewable resource? The principle of individual freedom is timeless. A generation cannot protect its own freedom at the expense of a future generation’s freedom. That is why non-renewable elements are so problematic. If they are not renewable, they should either be replaceable, at an equivalent effort, or recyclable, at an equivalent effort.
For example, we couldn’t leave a pile of plastic for a future generation by saying that they will find a solution at a lower cost than what it costs us to process the raw material. If this method does not exist, we must find it before using the raw material. The principle of sustainability of social equity is the second edict of individual freedom. There can be no individual freedom at a time t if it takes it away from a time t2.
To be continued tomorrow…
