Among the current fads on American college campuses is “sustainability.” As we read in this piece, students at UNCW want the school to impose an additional $5 fee on all students to create a fund to be used for various “sustainability” programs.

If they think “sustainability” so important, why don’t the students work to raise the money through voluntary means? It’s telling that their first thought was to force every student to pay through a tax rather than trying to persuade them to contribute voluntarily.
