Self Design

On Earth Day week I find myself short-tempered and bitter. "Green" has been co-opted by corporate wasters that the movement intended to stop.

Aside from environmentalists refusing to use their detractors wildly successful advertising strategies themselves I wonder, how did they go wrong?

To that problem of a failed process I bring an older piece with a possible solution that starts on the ground floor-- Facebook Suicide.
"...Twenge also found a large increase in self-reference words like “I,” “me,” “mine” and “myself” in news stories published in the 80s and 90s. These words replaced collective words such as “we,” “us,” “humanity,” “country” or “crowd” found in the stories of a similar nature in the 50s and 60s. "
