Having a rare bird as an attraction for tourists has nothing to do with people not producing anything. It does not prevent anyone from producing a single thing. Heck, when I went birding in Arkansas this past fall, we took a drive and just a few miles down the road was a factory that made boats. It was near Bull Shoals. People can work, play and survive while still conserving good habitat and protecting rare species.<quoted text>Yep those folks in Greece thought they could live forever without producing from the tourist income. In the USa We now have half the folks believing thay dont have to produce. They think someone else will produce for them. Now the few remaining producers are asking then selves Why? Why produce when large part of my productivity is robbed (taxed) away. Then its given to the non productive parasite takers. then The amount I am allowed to keep has to compete in the market place against the same money thay was robbed from me?
There ARE extreme environmentalists who think people should climb in a hole or die to save the animals. And there are politicians who can be paid off to make people go away to save the animals. That is not me. I believe we can protect rare species while still living our lives. But often times we could be more responsible in our actions.
