30336, i agree, HOWEVER

this culture--possibly more than any other in the world, western or otherwise--is highly influenced by media.

hell, even if you wanna get ppl involved in a good, decent cause, what do you have to do? a tv commercial. preferably jeweled w/ celebrities. otherwise, how would folks even know it *is* a cause? the newspaper? hardly.

so on the one hand, i feel you. social problems are the heart of the issue.

but i also think that a major reason why folks are sleeping on those issues is because of the influence of the (mainstream) media around us.
