I know we through the bullshit back and forth quite a bit Bob. I know I never take it personally, I hope you are likewise.

I believe conceptually we agree on what our society's problems are and to some degree most the causes. Our whys, hows and solutions may differ somewhat but that is natural, those types of opinions generally depend on life experiences and all of ours are different.

While you may find Mr. McKillop's approach enlightening, he isn't telling me anything I don't already know. We're fucked, I get it. Now what are we going to do about it? I don't believe anything gets solved by focusing on the negative. That probably comes from being a mechanic… you can cry about something being broken all day, it isn't going to fix itself.

To me the Pandora's box of rampant consumerism has been opened… globally. Seeing the dawn of consumerism in places like Kalimantan, Indonesia (i.e., Borneo) and Dexing, China will lead you to believe that. So while you and others may want to try and slam the lid back on Pandora's box, others need to continue to try and deal with controlling the mess that is already out there. Frankly, both are needed.
