      i considered posting in the climate change thread, but then i stopped and realized no one in that thread would approach it from a constructive policy perspective, and that anything i could offer would lead to people attacking me without fully understanding what im trying to say

        and we see this quite frequently in western consumer movements. consumers want policy solutions to be restrictive towards everyone but themselves. simples solutions with great positive environmental impacts, eat less in general, buy less goods, etc, that put a lifestyle strain on western audiences are rejected, whereas minimal impact solutions (recycling) are acceptable as they do not place a burden on western consumer lifestyles but still provide a feeling of altruism.

        and this is why you find consumer movements always predicated on more "non-lifestyle" products than more overall damaging practices. the current movement on palm oil production in the south pacific is more ingrained in consumer habits than the just as, if not more harmful overall, practice of rare earths mining which is necessary in consumer electronics. it also implicitly relates to the rejection of lifestyle based movements; as you are aware, meat agriculture and seafood consumption are amongst the most damaging industries in terms of pure environmental cost, but there is very little urge to scale them back as to do so would require a major shift in consumer lifestyle that the average individual would not be willing to commit to.

        basically, we (the consumer) want change; we just do not want to change that relates to us. which is unfortunate because that is the biggest roadblock to major action.

      Hello Shrug,

      Whilst working on my thesis I read a piece in the Virginia Law Review that you might find interesting, Decentralization and Development by Richard Schragger. I took the liberty of uploading it on to puush in case you don't have jstor access: https://puu.sh/sJUeH/a5f956bb13.pdf.
      1. lushen

        The most interesting (and most relevant point towards my research) is found starting at point 59: Economic Geography and Decentralization, "in fact a growing economy is one in which certain areas are fading and certain areas are growing."

        I think you'll find this piece quite useful in your continued struggle in Cong.

      since i dont want to think of 3 more people to tag.....

      1. is sadness brief moments of deep misery or a constant feeling of unwell?
      - sadness is the 1st, depression is the 2nd imo. i am not a psychologist tho.

        2. whats the best flavor of ramen noodle and why
        - tokushima. i like pork belly quite a bit
        3. should all drugs be legal?
        - no. certain drugs, such as heroin and krokodil are too risky. i enjoy drugs now and then but i very much discourage the use of them, though making them illegal is too much. id prefer strict regulation and taxation in the way tobacco is, and if given the chance, id prefer alcohol be regulated in that way as well.
