Green (Living) Review

Moral (road) hazard

Environmental Economics

It's perplexing for both police and lawmakers throughout the U.S.: They want to do something about the danger of texting while driving , a major road hazard, but banning the practice seems to make it even more dangerous.

School: daytime jail for children

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) In the government brainwashing institution that is called public school no regard is given to the wishes of children that are being taught. A state bureaucrat decides what they will learn, and when, and without having ever considered the needs of any of the children. A stranger they may or may not like will then teach them and shape their personality, and often this is done by forces, including physical force.

How homeschooling could help the Planet

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Homeschooling could be of great benefit to the Planet, not to speak of the children. As far as the Planet if concerned the fact is that if every child would be homeschooled millions of school bus journeys and even more car journeys in a day would become history. Those journeys alone pump much pollution into the atmosphere, and I include the always exclusively CO2 emissions in the work pollution, often unnecessarily, as many children could walk or cycle to school.

Secular democracy on the march in the Muslim world?

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) The short and most simple answer to this question would be to say “hardly” but that might be as little too short. The truth is, however, that it is a myth that secular democracy is on the march in the Muslim world and, in fact, it would more appear that the countries that experienced the so-called “Arab Spring” now are on the brink, and almost all of them, of being run by Islamists like the Muslim Brotherhood and similar.

Every citizen should be a soldier

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) When Thomas Jefferson said: “Every citizen should be a soldier. This was the case with the Greeks and Romans, and must be that of every free state”, he did not, as some people claim, refer to all Americans being responsible for upholding and defending the original vision, values, and fabric of the United States – and being ever-vigilant against those who might try to co-opt it for their own advantage over the will of the people.

The myth of paperless

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Time and again misguided and misinformed environmentalists try too tell us that we should all ditch paper for digital and go paperless and they claim that that would save millions of trees and the rainforests. But, just pause for a moment and think. Where does most wood for the paper mills come from? No, not from “virgin” forests and not at all from the tropical rainforests. The wood of the latter is hardwood which is unsuitable for paper pulp, for starters.
