what is "good"?

 

What do we mean by sustainability?


When something is sustainable, it becomes enduring, even persistent. Before there was much talk about sustainability, people would prefer any "good" condition to be enduring - be that individual affection, corporate profit, communal health or territorial peace.


So, what defines a "good", preferably long-lasting, condition? That is a value judgment. The value you and I place on health, wealth and freedom will differ.


To define sustainability, we need to agree on what is "good".
