Well done, Larry. A good clear voice...hopefully the right people listen.

Why is this such a big deal? Why do people make 'diversion' such an issue?

Mostly because...as with voting and with personal fitness and finance...people don't care. They aren't motivated.

They sure were during the last century's two World Wars. When individuals and communities did what needed to be done...even if the actual war effort was thousands of miles away. Some people -apparently- see the 'sacrifice' of having to process their waste as being too great.

But as someone pointed out recently, we've lost not only a sense of 'community', but the 'entitlement' mindset has become the default setting. Except it's not just entitlement in terms of what people feel they 'deserve', it's also entitlement in terms of what they should have their time impinged by. Or not, as the case may be.

It doesn't help that this initiative comes from 'government', and people aren't exactly willing to be told what they should and shouldn't do, how they should and shouldn't regard their own waste.

'What goes around, comes around.'
