Who needs saving?
After last week’s confession I have been asked how the evolution and expansion of the common law could deliver resource conservation and environmental protection.
By its nature, there’s no generic prescription but common law principles can be helpfully thought through for particular instances.
The advantage of the common law approach is its lack of prescription in favour of the consistent application of the principles of property, tort and contract law.
The common law doesn’t deliver an outcome but instead a set of rules that enables people to interact peacefully and freely while continuously discovering the best and proper use of precious resources.
That makes my head hurt. What has this got to do with whales Rodney? ’Cause we post anything about whales. It’s policy.
