^ VERY true, the concept of compromise has gone out the window. I don't know if people are not able to regulate themselves, but most are very unwilling to. The entitlement attitude in this country is off the charts, and it is (and I hate this word) not sustainable, not everyone can or deserves to live like a celebrity. Our excess has become normal and expected, and it comes at a price to natural resources. We live like kings compared to a good 2/3 of the world, try being grateful, instead of always wanting more, waste less and you will have more.
