My answer is yes. All human action on the earth is depending of the cultural
heritage of the generation which has educated, learned and controlled the
new comers. The people of to morrow is now childrens and more or less
without power to destroy the nature. When they grow and increase them power
they will be "gremlings" destroyers or in better case keepers or in very best
case people like you "improvers".
So the future is in our hands and soon in the hands of the youngsters which has
lived with us and learned everything they know from us. (Think about the wolf
childrens which have been educated in the heard of wolfs, they act like wolfs).
So there is no other bossibility than look to mirror.
One humans resources and power is limited and should be used in small scale operations.
The world is still too big for an singular individual...
Think global act local!
