Pragmatic, not dogmatic

I saw a recent press report on one of China's new eco-cities.

There are quite a few eco-cities around the world - trying out technologies and techniques to improve sustainability.

What was so good about this one is that it was rather low-tech .... it didn't rely on slavish adherence to rules and regimens by the people ... but it was making a difference.

It was pragmatic, rather than dogmatic ... realising that people are flawed and inherently selfish ... they want to 'do their bit' but they want to enjoy life too.

So, one up for the Chinese! Moving in the right direction ... but moving at a sensible pace.
