    but I gotta hope each little step I am taking now will benefit the future.

      individually--while desirable, responsible and moral--really won't help much at all, unless absolutely all of us do them. Even then, we're talking about a 20% reduction (and that's if we all do them).

      The only things that will really make a big difference if the military and industrial consumption is reduced by upwards of 80%. That requires a huge change in the system, in society, in civilization.

      Which is why, with our current collective response being so incredibly far from being rational, one can only assume that people are completely corrupt, ignorant, deluded or defeated.

      •  I'm working on fixing that, too! (1+ / 0-)

        As best I can.

        this hit a chord

        "Which is why, with our current collective response being so incredibly far from being rational, one can only assume that people are completely corrupt, ignorant, deluded or defeated."

        and then I realize, 'chit I'm one of them'.
