We need a new vision, one that operates on the basis of a sustainable society. This should:
Seek to achieve a steady state population;
Seek to create a steady state economy;
Provide housing for people to live in not profit from;
Create and sustain an environment such that all can achieve a high quality of life;
Retain and maintain the environment;
Use resources in such a way as to ensure the long term viability of society;
Maximise long-term sustainability not short-term exploitation.
