Yes — I think there is a difference, but also a huge grey area — and catch 22, as well. That’s what leaves me perplexed as to making better choices as a society — everybody has an opinion and — as we’ve discussed, everyone’s perception/perspective is real.
A little, simple, benign example —
Daily wear contacts. I’ve survived with monthlies for years. I can switch to dailies — better for my comfort and my eyes. Good, right? More packaging and garbage. Bad, right? More work/profit for the manufacturer. Good? Bad? More jobs? More automation? Less jobs?
Every step forward has good and bad — and opinions surrounding.
So many decisions are filled with complexity.
Sorry if that was a bit off the path from your point, but it was the least controversial example I could come up with.:)
