Judt's mother and father were British citizens and secular Jews.  Judt enthusiastically embraced Zionism at age 15. For a time he wished to emigrate to Israel, against the wishes of his parents, who were concerned about his studies. In 1966, having won an exhibition to King's College, Cambridge , he worked for the summer on kibbutz Machanaim . When Nasser expelled UN troops from Sinai in 1967, and Israel mobilized for war, he volunteered to replace kibbutz members who had been called up. During and in the aftermath of the Six-Day War , he worked as a driver and translator for the Israel Defense Forces .  After the war, Judt's belief in the Zionist enterprise began to unravel.
Lack of property rights over excessive use of resources leads to degradation of environment. This leads to overgrazing of common or public lands, deforestation, and overexploitation of minerals, fish, etc. Clarifying and assigning ownership titles and tenurial rights to private owners will solve environmental problems. Places where the use of common lands, forests, irrigation systems, fisheries, etc. are regulated and rules for their proper use are laid down by the community, the ownership rights should be clearly specified in the administrative records.
Section 133 of the Criminal Procedure Code, 1973 deals with 'removal of nuisance' and empowers the Sub-Divisional Magistrate or any executive Magistrate, on receiving report/information, to make order to remove the public nuisance and desist from carrying any trade, business which is causing public nuisance. The Court have made use of Section 133 of the Code widely to deal with the problem of solid waste management. In the famous case of Municipal Corporation, Ratlam v. Shri Vardhichand [ 16 ] Justice Krishna Iyer declared that 'â€¦the guns of Section 133 go into action wherever there is public nuisance. The public power of the Magistrate under the Code is a public duty to the members of the public who are victims of the nuisance.' If the order is defied or ignored, Section 188, . comes into penal play. It was further, observed that 'imperative tone of S. 133, . read with the punitive temper of S. 188 . makes the prohibitory act a mandatory duty.'
