Our class had a phone interview with Mr. Quinn yesterday (10/10/02) and he mentioned that “politics should be the last to change.” I disagree with him because I came from Korea and the government passed couple of laws that force people to recycle.
For example, the government passed a law in the early 90s that people should use trash bags issued by the government. Of course, the majority of the people refused and had many complaints about it. However, at the end, people came to recycle more and restaurants tried not to use plastic cups and dishes because the more trash they produced, the more money they had to pay. Even though Mr. Quinn was skeptical about politics, isn’t it better to influence the politicians as well?
