    I do not have a high view of humans although I'm not in the misanthropy that categorizes so many environmentalists I know.  I also draw distinctions between Westernized peoples and people who still live largely indigenous/sustainably.  But are all humans sweet little stars who just want a chance to be good? No. Humans are just as selfish and xenophobic as we are nurturing and idealistic.

    The reptile brained-side of our minds has won out for too long in America. I'd like the consequences of decades of greed, sexual hysteria, xenophobia, blood lust and all the rest to not catch up to us, but we are refusing as a society to think on a higher level than "FUCK YOU, I GOT MINE."

    Governments care only as much as their citizens force them to care. Nothing changes unless we change -- George Monbiot.
