Opinion – Luxuries


Jared Pullen

Our world is such a massive place to live in, full of different life and such, but we remove all of this in an attempt to further improve our lives.

In this world, we are always looking for a way to improve our ways of living, from basic necessities to luxuries. Yet, in our pursuit of a life like this, we tear down our own world, which we have done for years. Should we be tearing down the Earth in the pursuit of a better life?

“Destroying the earth just to improve our life sounds like a paradox, ” says senior Troy Adkins, “it would just destroy the ecosystem, which would eventually destroy us.”

Personally, I think it should be done in ways that doesn’t destroy the forests and other locations where wildlife live. We can gain luxuries, just not by sacrificing the animals trying to live their own lives.
