2. IMO

President Carter was right on target with his national address about the consumer society that was evolving. The chasing of profit and growth (over basic human conditions/standards of living) has caused humanity to simply lose sight of...humanity. At some point in the future this will self correct, unfortunately this correction will take place because survival will depend upon it and not by choice to just be a better species. It will be a very different planet when this happens and I doubt any of us alive today will live to see it. Future generations will look back upon us with distain and wonder how we could have let it happen as we look back on past generations. This is what my "Tea Leafs" tell me.
