[Jim's Eclectic World] New comment on A critique of national parks as "America's best id....

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "A critique of national parks as "America's best id...":

It's critical that western peoples not be greedy, not be self-serving; but that is not possible for most peoples much of the time, really. The motives of civilized peoples are a complex conundrum of both positive and harmful values. You phrase your points well.
It is useless but hopeful, in my opinion, to believe that western culture can ever do better than it has. There are limits, unfortunately, to what can be achieved altruistically.
