Hear hear!

Attributing the state of the environment to the actions of individual 
"laypersons" if you will is nothing but an attempt to divide and 
conquer.  It does nothing to address the reasons why people live the way 
they do, which is in no small part decided by their societal containers as 
defined by public policy.

Thanks for the tip powderlurker!
