I guess I am having a hard time with the assertion of "most". I certainly believe that this may become the case with the spread of global capitalism and the commodification of basically everything, including other human beings, but I would assert that such a disconnect probably does not yet exist for indigenous peoples around the world, or perhaps a more accurate/appropriate way of saying it might be those cultures that are basically still pre-modern.
