RLCC Comment: All that garbage means one thing. The people are too self-centered. They aren't practicing the Golden Rule. They aren't taking care of each other's property: The Commons. It comes out of the selfishness that is taught as the economic and social system now dominating the world and ruining it. It's time for a change of heart.
