It takes a holistic view, respect for others, and respect for the
whole, to design and then live in an actually sustainable way.

Those that assert that it is permanently relevant to do so, whether
from religious perspective that this is the unique creation, or from
reasoning only, or from deep intimacy, make that happen.

Those that pursue their own goals without harming others, are likely
to live in a sustainable way only if the laws and norms favor
sustainability, requiring good law and/or widely held social norms.
(Again if the 30% of the population that attends religious services
regularly, are urged to love the earth tangibly, and they do, that is
real.)

Those that pursue their own goals willing to harm others, are then
criminals, and held accountable.

It doesn't happen when sustainability is solely a self-righteous
movement. It happens when sustainability is the norm.
