I believe that decisions that impact a certain group of individuals should be made with that group's perspectives in mind. This seems like a very obvious idea but as we saw with the sea otter story, this is often overlooked when decisions are made. I envision a world where decisions are made after including thoughts from all parties that may be impacted by said decision. I also think that the amount of say a certain group has towards that decision should be somehow correlated to the extent they will feel the effects of the decision. A way to achieve this could be as simple as having representatives from under-voiced communities present when decision-making is taking place to provide their perspective on the situation and this will lead to less adverse harmful effects on communities. Along with all of this, I also believe the effects these decisions have on the environment should be accounted for as well to reduce the negative effects on the environment itself.
