Family Fined for Noisy Toddler
One family in Dallas, TX is finding out what sustainable living is like. They are living in a condo and they have a Home Owners Association. A Home Owners Association is one of many ways property rights are collectivized. Apparently, his neighbors have a right to gang up on his family because his toddler is too loud. As a father of four, I can tell you from first-hand experience that kids can be loud. If he was living in a less “sustainable” way he would not have this problem and neither would his neighbors. His $1600 fine was reduced to $250. Wow. Dallas is a member of ICLEI.
