Sustainable Development.  A feel good term that is defined as  "development that meets the needs of today without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."

The problem is that the "needs" the report refers to are not human needs but those of the planet. It concludes we can only meet them by eliminating or reducing "unsustainable" activities globally. These include property ownership, consumerism, and high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, roadways, automobiles, dams, our legal system, pastures, golf courses and more

While many see sustainable development as a safe way to protect the planet, many other groups see sustainable development as a political agenda in which it is acceptable to sever personal rights in the name of the environment. 


Does Sustainable Development require us to give up some of our most basic freedoms for the sake of the planet and the good of others?

John Anthony, founder of the Sustainable Freedom Lab joins "Common Sense" to discuss the impact of Sustainable Development on our everyday life, where and how we live and how it is making its way into our communities.
