In my part of California, we have issues with people moving to rural areas, then becoming distressed by the dust, noise, spraying, picking and mud that agriculture creates.|
On the one hand, the agriculturists really do not have the "right" to infringe on the others by tracking mud onto the roads, by spraying chemicals that stink, by inviting hoardes of ag workers into the canyon, etc.
On the other hand, the farmers were here first.
Clare's quandary seems similar. The partiers have no "right" to sing and dance in the plaza and disturb others. On the other hand, she moved in next to that existing condition.
Another parable: My dad got to make some money 40-or-so years ago because he lived in Playa del Rey, California, which is at the end of the runway for LAX. The neighborhood and the airport made an agreement that the airport was incompatible with the neighborhood, and since the airport had more money, it imposed its will by buying the neighbors out.
The funny part is that the neighbors bought their homes at the end of the runway AND THEN complained about the noise.
I don't know where I am going with this ...
