Argument – National Park
The country Myria, which charges fees for the use of national parks, reports little evidence of environmental damage. This strongly suggests that for the country Illium, the best way to preserve public lands is to charge people more money when they are using national parks and wilderness areas for activities with heavy environmental impact. By collecting fees from those people who overuse public lands, Illium will help preserve those lands for present and future generations.
Before charges people more money, the evidence given in the argument should consider all other factors that may affected on the result, Illium government is assumed that by increasing the usage fees of parks and wilderness areas for activities, they will help preserve those lands from damages as per happened in Myria.
First, I would like to comment on what happened in Myria, it is not clear and vague, many questions need to be clarified to be able to encompasses all sides of the given issue, such as what is the society culture and people behavior in Myria?, what is the type of environmental damages happened?, is laying waste or destruction / if it is individuals actions or episode accident or its people trends, it’s may be the education level and attitude of people in Myria is differ than the people in Illium. In addition to the questions above, how much of charges fees applied for using parks in Myria?, is it lower or equal or greater than the originally applied in Illium, and if it is the same, what is the advantages of increasing the using fees, if the damage will happened, may be Illium Government intends to use these fees for maintenance and preservation, and if so how much it will cost?
Another point to consider, the argument not given any alternatives or study the possibility of using it, such as, prepare an enlightenment campaigns to people in Illium, introducing the importance of such parks and wilderness area and how we preserve it. Also they can issue a stringent policy or law prohibited the damage or waste laying to any of public parks, provided close monitoring from the government to the public parks to avoid any reckless or irresponsible behavior.
In conclusion, I don’t know if the above decision will really protect the parks or not, because the lack of information given, also the alternative does not discussed, but what I know is the parks and wilderness areas is the last thing we would like to touch it with any type of damages, our life which is surrounded by artificial materials and polluted air need something pure and virgin to remember us with the original nature of our planet.
