. Wheres theboundary between rights andachievements ? I think its amoving bar. Along history, the setof rights broadens driven by thebroadening of the set oachievements, and providing it apositive boost as a feedback. Forme, right is something individualsfeel 2 own as a naturalentitlement and a large majorityof people feels 2 allow everyoneon a fair & mutual basis; right isthe opportunity 2 build furtherachievements than ages before,and 2 exploit & discover existent& new talents; and right should be a way 2 provide a society with some basictools, from infrastructures 2 personal entitlements, in a more efficient, cheapermanner than competition can be. Achievements are, in my opinion, all the rest.Progress happens when the set of rights keeps broadening along time, allowingindividuals 2 compete 4 better, starting from an always higher basis. A
is able 2 make long term planning needed 2 keep alive this processalong generations, avoiding us 2 loose the competitive advantages our fathers& our grandfathers have conquered, and 2 have 2 fight again 4 them.Let me say something unusual, maybe offbeat. I think ‘
is a right. This morning I had an interesting conversation with one of my neighboursabout ornamental trees vs. green areas in the town where I live, and theircosts. If not mishandled, green areas like public gardens or parks are natural,small ecosystems, realized within a bigger, artificial ecosystem that is city. Ithink most of us agree
public gardens and parks, like open spaces,improve urban way of life, they make towns liveable. They were anachievement for few, in a far past, a right-2-breath 4 all, nowadays. We’d like 2have more of them. Personally, I even think ‘
one block-one park 
’ (one parkavailable 4 each city borough, at least) should be a real target of anyadministration, of any local council, besides a nice slogan.On the other side, ornamental trees, or large flowerbeds along roads areartificial, they are a security problem for driving or biking at present time,
‘countryside rendering
’ is just one old-fashioned approach 4 designers, andthey’re a full cost -but they are still there, while the ‘slogan’ above is verydifficult 2 implement, I guess.
