    You are, I think, forgetting the biggest component in this problem, "tongue-in-cheeked" in Mel Brook's "Blazing Saddles", "We've got to protect our phoney-baloney jobs, gentlemen"

    What I mean is that (almost) everyone will do (almost) whatever it takes to be able to live in the lifestyle to which they have been accustomed.

    Or, at the least, they justify it as making certain their family is well taken care of.

    This is human nature, and, except for a few individuals every now and again, will never change (in my opinion).

    I find it annoying to the point of homicide myself, but my feelings aren't going to change the way the world seems to operate...

    I saw a bumper sticker that said, "Think globally, act locally", and that is what I try to do, and is, pretty much, (being non-rich and not a politician (oops, redundancy)), all that I can do.

    If you find a way to make a difference, (that still fits within the human psyche as we know it), please let me know!
