C.Erl, collective action is fine as long as it doesn't take away people's freedom to manage their own private property. As it stands today, if you own land in the greenbelt, you have lost the freedom to sell it to home builders, thus abolishing your ability to make a mutually beneficial transaction.

If you think it's alright for government to do this, then none of us have any inherent freedoms, except what the government and the courts of the day want to grant us. I for one don't believe that government has any authority over my life, nor do I believe they are even moral. Government exists only through the threat of force, so underlying all of their nice "saving the planet" rhetoric, is a group of people that will throw you in jail if you don't give them enough of your income.

If the government leaders of today were truly moral, they would do what great moral leaders do, use persuasion to call people to action, not force.
