    I think Pirsig and the MOQ has something to say about this. One of the things
    that makes American society so dynamic is, well, seeing soccer-moms driving
    SUVs everyday. I don't see anything wrong with this kind of Dynamic Quality.

    I also don't really agree with the other sentiments of your post. Earth is
    not in trouble. This planet is four and a half billion years old. Earth has
    survived forces that are slightly more damaging than SUVs. I can name some of
    them: cometary impacts, volcanic eruptions, whole continents moving, violent
    upheavals too horrible to think of witnessing--Earth survived it all. Human beings
    are not God. Human beings can not control the weather. Ants have more of an
    impact on a person's front yard than we do on Earth's environment.

    Earth takes care of herself.One hundred years seems long to us humans (one
    hundred years ago we didn't have cars, airplanes, computers, etc), but to the
    Earth one hundred years is NOTHING. A million years is nothing. Earth lives and
    breathes on a much vaster scale (to quote a character from Jurassic Park).
