Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Perhaps the biggest disconnect in our society is that collective individualism is confused with society, and that micro-incremental is rated as zero. Insignificant.

If I knowingly drop a single piece of litter, it will affect only a few people. If this were a rare occurrence, someone else might pick up my litter and put it in the litter bin. An insignificant task, for its rarity. If a million people drop a single piece of litter on the basis that 'well, some civic-minded person will pick it up', there is a problem.

You can't be me, I'm taken
