3. "Trash to be Recyled"...kind of says it all. K&R...A good article!
and when you say:

"We are a nation of consumers, with no respect for craftsmanship, for arts, for simplicity, for local goods, for homemade goods, all we want is tons of cheap stuff made, and we don't seem to care where it comes from or the impact on people or environment."

We had that in the late 60's thru 70's. Craft Fairs, Hand Made Toys, Move for more Natural Foods and LL Bean and Lands End who used to sell goods made in Maine or in Lands End's catalogs...knitted sweaters from Ireland/Scotland. Natural Fibers ruled and "wood toys for kids." Children's Television (before it was corrupted) tried to focus on learning and making learning fun and the FCC had madated that a certain number of hours a day were to focus on childrens programming that was educational.

That's all gone today.
