The Transportation Tragedy

A few posts ago, I mentioned a call for ideas to improve community living as a means not just for neighborliness, but as a call for ecological care. And I received some pretty good ones.

Most of the suggestions happen to be in the form of transportation. Example: Joe, Bob and Sue live in the same apartment complex. But Joe works 15 miles NE, Bob works 20 miles SE, and Sue works nearly 45 miles W. What’s the problem? Right: they’re all using separate cars to get to work.

The Economy of Christian Policy-Making

People are assuming not just that we have a scarcity of resources, but that we cannot work enough to transform them. They also assume (or willingly forget) that government systems are not already in place for the Christian to take her faith and transform the world through it as a divinely-ordained framework for good.
