While this is a very simplistic overview of the way that the consumer economy works, it is incredibly mis-informed, and idealistic. One of the biggest problems facing environmentalism as a movement, is that it fails to come up with realistic solutions to problems. This video highlights this, and simply points the blame at someone else (especially corporations, which are just people, when you really get down to it).
