We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

Samizdata slogan of the day

It is certainly true that modern civilization has created environmental problems, but the key enviromental issue is addressed in this one question. Is our technology’s ability to solve environmental problems advancing faster than are the environmental problems themselves?

    And the next question could be: Will the policies and practices advocated by environmental groups help us to find technological solutions to these environmental problems? Or will they in fact distract and hamper us, perhaps eventually altering the answer to Michael’s question from ‘yes’ to ‘no’?

    In general the environmental groups are religions rather than rational environmental advocates. Their main objective is to make sure that the public make no use of the environment and that no one make money from the environment – except for themselves.
