Should everyone be required to recycle?
Recycling, in many states, is still not mandatory. Should it be?
I don't know. I'm a big recycler and green living adherent; but I'm not sure how a requirement could be enforced on so large a population. I'm confident that sustainable practices are increasing, or should I say "greening" the world.

Should everyone in this country be forced to learn English?English is NOT the official language of this country and it is considered one the hardest languages to master. Many Americans who move to other countries never learn the native language there.
