The fact is, however, that just like with public schools - people are inclined to focus on maintaining high standard for facilities that they are inclined to use - those in their community and expect others to do activisim for their own facilities.
It is that very self-interest that you describe above that is at the root of just about all of humanity's problems and evils.
Either we learn to accept the fact that we're all in this together and that we live in a community of human beings all over the Earth, or, we will continue to exploit and pollute and harm each other to humanity's ultimate demise.
BTW - for all of you whp are motivated by scripture, what did the Bible say about "the least of these"? I guess Bush, conservatives, and capitalists missed Sunday school that lesson!
MBM - I am not sure who is worse between you or Empty in your theory that you can have man transform into behaving like ANTS, practicing 100% socialism above their own concerns.
You and many other libs act like ultra-conservatives when it comes to the consideration of sending funds outside of America rather than spending it on your fellow Americans. There are many rich people who seek to keep their money for spending on their own families while people in New Orleans live in RELATIVE poverty. They poverty, however is upper class living in many poor areas such as in Pakistan and Somolia. Why is it so difficult for you to express what you preach when it comes to going beyond the MAN MADE NATION-STATE?
