Keep it real? Get some private property rights

There is a difficult irony in Russell Norman’s demands that more be done to preserve the environment by, say, having users pay for using water – and yet central Green ideology seems to prevent utterly the formation of the very property rights to abstract and discharge which would allow this to happen.

A genuine desire to “keep it real” – as opposed to a vague push to differentiate a bunch of political aspirations – would see the Green Party pushing hard for the formation of private property rights in water and other elements of the environment which they want to see responsibility taken for.
