From The Liberty Wall – English Green Debate (4) – How Do We Persuade People To Live In Harmony With The Environment?
THE END of November saw another interesting and thought-provoking English Green debate. The introduction to the debate briefly outlined the dominance of “extreme materialism and rampant consumerism” (with special emphasis on Black Friday) and asked how it was possible to persuade people to live in harmony with nature.
This debate is being conducted via English Green’s Facebook page -
https://www.facebook.com/groups/167522623276444/?ref=br_tf – and is proving to be of the usual high standard.
National Liberals will be interested to note that the debate has noted that Switzerland is very pro-active when it comes to environmental measures. For instance, whilst motorways exist, the Swiss “prefer freight to be sent by piggy back train through base tunnels under the Alps between countries to the North and South of Switzerland.”

IT’S PROBABLY FAIR to say that supporters of English Green are not the greatest fans of gigantic cities and towns. We feel that they simply generate more and more noise and pollution. We also feel that much urban sprawl is downright ugly! Instead we prefer a more natural rural way of life.
We’re not too sure if anyone really wants to destroy the environment – so how do we persuade people that we must live in harmony with it?
