I was eating breakfast at the hotel buffet this morning and noticed that, despite stacks of glasses and ceramic mugs next to the coffee and juice, every single other person at breakfast was drinking from a disposable cup. This sort of thing makes me despair of ever changing these sorts of behaviors at scale.

The Convivial Society, No. 15: Fortnite and the Good Life:

Liberal democratic (small l, small d) political culture has, generally speaking, also bracketed questions of the good, and it has done so by design, choosing instead to maximize freedom. (But freedom, properly understood, is only the condition of the moral life not its end.) The idea, of course, is that in a pluralistic society it may be impossible to reconcile competing visions of the good. So, particular and substantive moral accounts of the good do not get much traction in the public sphere, and such arguments do not pass the bar of ostensibly public reason. Naturally, then, such public debates, and consequently are own habits of moral reasoning, get locked into matters of measurable—which is to say supposedly objective, scientifically verifiable—harm.
