The Amazon rainforest is one of the most beautiful and essential natural features on our planet. Yet, it is now in great danger as fires, raging for many weeks, threaten the “lungs” of Earth. We should be worried about the Amazon rainforest. But calls for the government to act are not the answer. If they give up ownership and privatize it, governments will provide the best way for the Amazon and other threatened natural resources to be saved. By doing so, they will introduce a beneficial profit motive.

On a school trip to Washington D.C. for Trump’s inauguration a little over a year ago, my friend and I faced a bit of an awkward situation when we expressed our libertarian leanings to the school sponsor. He was also the government teacher (non-AP, of course). When we stated that we were libertarians, he said something along the lines of “If libertarians got their way, there would be no roads, no healthcare, no military, and no police.”
