That isn't the pressing problem.. it is just one CONSEQUENCE of many, due to manipulation of information by big interest groups.
I mean, take a lab rat, put it in a box, start a fire on one end, put food on the other end, and look at the 'free choice' the rat makes. Which way will it go you think?
I didn't force the rat.. it made it's own 'free choice'. Or did I make the choice? I did.. I controlled its choice..
This is the 'free choice' that america has today.. everybody believes they are free, however, they are like lab rats in a box. Any smart person knows that you can not choose options not offered to you.
The truth is, "free choice" is not absolute but relative to your level of conciousness, and the latter depends on proper diverse media very much lacking in the USA today.
It is the country that causes most environmental pollution per capita.. amercan's consume 7 times more than asians, and 40% of the world's natural resources (despite making up only 4% of the world's population). 99% of the gas is burned just to drag around the weight of the SUV's themselves, and only 1% goes to the human payload inside it, daily.. people depend on their cars to cross the street, to do their grocery shopping or to return the rented video to the stores around the block.
In another discussion, someone asked "This morning I woke up and felt the urge to save the world and nature, where do I begin?". I answered "Start with putting bananas in SUV tail pipes". Might keep millions of people dying in a next flood, with rising sea levels and other climate changes.
