In a culture of meanness, the mean Mean will continue to consume the world until their tower of Babel collapses from its own 'perfection'. In other words, trying to argue with the 'logic' of consumers (consumerism wasn't invented in the 20th century, it has been with us as long as there have been Empires). The bottom line is that there are two kinds of people: those who think they can own land and those that know the land (or the universe, in more modern scientific terminology) owns us, and we are its servants. The histories are written by people who think they can own the universe without serving it.
