    The point VL Baker is trying to make is that this problem isn't going to solve itself. Get off your ass and do something. Do a little thing if that's all you can do, but do something! No use sitting around waiting for a revolution to save the world when the whole world is crumbling all around you.

    It's amazing the amount of finger pointing people will do to save themselves from having to take one bit of personal responsibility. IMHO that's what's dangerous.
