Apathetic People? I encounter them everyday.
Also hostile people.
I work with environmental and industrial things - nothing too exotic - nothing like this oil spill.
But I get various attitudes day in and day out. I must be a Hippie Tree Hugger! I'm some Left Wing Loony!
Oh but then - when the filth is discovered on their property - oh ho - they sing a different tune.
Then they are begging for help.
(I am a geek/tech person who could care less about politics, just so you know. I am in this biz for use of education - I would really *like* to hug
trees and owls, believe me. As it is - I'm the one keeping you from blowing yourselves up, poisoning yourselves, and mundane things like that.)
(Yes. Ignorance exists from the small biz owner, to the multi national corporation.) I fear blind ignorance more than I fear "plots".
You can witness such attitudes right here on this site - I saw one poster say in the same breath (I'm paraphrasing here) - 'The GOV needs to FIX
this now! ' then the person went on to complain about 'All the damned enviro regs'. HEAD DESK!
It's funny, people seem to know not to crap in the sink they draw water from, they seem to 'get' that one ought to maintain their car so the engine
doesn't seize up, but for some reason - they believe that Big Business should not be hampered by such concerns.
I don't get it.
