    The concept of such natural system where everything involved helps everything else to continue in one or many ways isn't being advertised let alone promoted by mass media, movies, music videos, video games, fast food chains, resturuants, talk show hosts, religions, most educational systems or governments and none of which is to completely blame except for every single person in society who's directly or indirectly involved with it all in anyway.
