Paul’s great Highlands idea
The principle of Occam’s Razor teaches us that one should not increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to explain anything. It admonishes us to choose from a set of otherwise equivalent models of a given phenomenon the simplest one. A cynic would say that this is antithetical to politics, but I digress.
In today’s article, Paul Mulshine explains his plan
Unlike the state’s plan, which takes up 100 pages, mine can be stated in two sentences.
1) Set up a Highlands Commission that is empowered to buy land and/or conservation easements with that money.
2) Give that commission the right to match any private offer on any land for sale in the Highlands.
Clearly Paul has been following Occam.
