Wow, you always seem to find a new way to amaze me with your ideas. At a point in your life when most people settle into a routine and try to forget about the problems in the world, you do just the opposite. I've always figured that as long as I'm happy, I have nothing to worry about, but your essay helped to remind me that there are a lot of people out there who have it a lot worse. To be honest with you, I'm really not big on the environment. I know it's horrible, but I don't think the world is going to die or anything if I don't recycle. I know I'm a horrible person, but I just don't tend to think of the big picture as you do. You not only look at the problems of the world, you have even gone as far as to make a gameplan to fix them, which amazes me. I think that your plan would be incredibly difficult to implement, because we live in a commercial community.
Everything done in our country has some sort of effect on the corporate world, and that's just how it is. So many people are tied up in materialism, that they will never even comprehend what your ideas mean. All they know is that they have to have a better car than their neighbors and they have to have lots of money to be comfortable. If you can erase these faulty concepts from peoples' minds (and I do believe that films such as American Beauty and Fight Club are starting to open the way for this) then you will be a hundred times more successful in your attempts to straighten out the world. ===============
