Yes, we've hit this dichotomy before Shiney, and economic theory rubbing up against human nature. You just have to look at the massive waste management issue to see how free market and environment are working together - but again, we've had this discussion before. I'm not banging a drum for any party in particular, but as I said, the only issues for me are environmental, and the LDP don't measure up to my ideals, much as I like some of their other ideas. I like one or two of Hanson and Anning's also, but the package there is too odious to even sniff at! We'd definitely be better off though if the fuss and attention paid to their small world views was instead given to the LDP.
