Going against the grain

We plan well for today and maybe next week, but how well can we see forward or backward a generation? Is our narrow lens causing us to self-destruct, because of our inability to conserve today for generations hence, and our distaste for placing restrictions on the choices and freedoms of our neighbors? This article looks at those questions from logistical and philosophical perspectives, and mulls how they impact our private planning and public policy. It is probable that solutions will come more easily in some areas than others. Worth a read.
