There are individuals all across the United States mainland and territories doing their part to protect the environment. For them it is not a fad or political statement. Their main concern is to protect our ecosystems and, at the same time, educate others about the importance of our natural resources and the species that inhabit them and are affected by our daily activities. These environmental protectors are the ones that denounce any environmental wrongdoing and ultimately get results.
Even though mass media helps broadcast such an important message as environmental protection, it is the actions of these unsung environmental heroes that raise awareness among the general public. Let’s commend the work of these anonymous environmental heroes. Let’s foster an environmental dialogue in our homes, communities and learning centers. We need to make environment protection a personal responsibility. That is the only way future generations can make a contribution to Planet Earth’s yet to be written history.

AS A FINAL EXAMPLE of this failure of skepticism, consider the remarks of Henry Kissinger in his concluding remarks at the Harvard-Oxford television debate on America’s Vietnam policies. He observed, rather sadly, that what disturbs him most is that others question not our judgment, but our motives—a remarkable comment by a man whose professional concern is political analysis, that is, analysis of the actions of governments in terms of motives that are unexpressed in official propaganda and perhaps only dimly perceived by those whose acts they govern. No one would be disturbed by an analysis of the political behavior of the Russians, French, or Tanzanians questioning their motives and interpreting their actions by the long-range interests concealed behind their official rhetoric. But it is an article of faith that American motives are pure, and not subject to analysis (see note 1). Although it is nothing new in American intellectual history—or, for that matter, in the general history of imperialist apologia—this innocence becomes increasingly distasteful as the power it serves grows more dominant in world affairs, and more capable, therefore, of the unconstrained viciousness that the mass media present to us each day. We are hardly the first power in history to combine material interests, great technological capacity, and an utter disregard for the suffering and misery of the lower orders. The long tradition of naiveté and self-righteousness that disfigures our intellectual history, however, must serve as a warning to the third world, if such a warning is needed, as to how our protestations of sincerity and benign intent are to be interpreted.
Some people think that the government should be responsible for crime prevention, while others believe that it is the responsibility of the individual to protect themselves.
