110. Absolutely. The average American is painfully unaware

of the consequences of their actions. Whether it be cheering on Wall St gains which only equal a further drain on the worlds resources and it's environment through rampant speculation or driving Hummers with "Keep Tahoe Blue" stickers on them in the Sierra and wondering why it isn't snowing like it used to.
I feel for the Congo. As much as a heartless American can at least. I see the diminishing jungle and loss of species and have to sit knowing that it was our excesses of the 20th century that helped make it all possible. As it continues today with strip mining the land for rare minerals for our beloved Foxconn gadgets.
At least our captains of industry of old could claim ignorance of the effects of massive pollution and destruction of nature.
At the end of the day at least we as individuals can say we tried to stand against the tide of selfishness and greed in our own feeble way.
