I think this is exactly the problem and I agree with the statement that this is a question of values. As a result it is very much about morals — not at all in the sense of self-righteous dogma but in the sense of re-evaluation of what it means to be human, to “love our neighbors” by acting in ways that acknowledge that their lives impact on our own and vice versa. It does have to do with choice, choices, and that has to do with what we learn and believe. Because we will always be living what we believe in, and right now — though not always in the past and not necessarily in the future — we believe in having stuff. To deal with it must be to change it.
