: Another message - I can't contain myself!

: It is amazing to see the debate go back and forth between the believers and the non-believers.

: To all of the non-believers who suggest "Get a life" or something similar to the believers, I feel sad for your future. Our generation will be the last to see the great variety our planet offers us. I guess the point Dave and Helen are making is not only about McDonald's so don't take it so personally. They are stating that we ALL need to take a little more time and consideration before making our capital advances.

: For example the Australian environment - the sunburnt country - provides the perfect opportunity for more research into solar energy looking towards making us sustainable. However the petroleum companies of the world somehow manage to convince our government that their unsustainable product is a better option???

: I cannot comprehend that money is more important than our environment. What a sad future we will have when people realise this too late.

: McSpotlight: Precisely; something worth mentioning is that the McLibel case is merely an example of the conflict between humanity and multinational capitalism; that's why the documentary is called 'McLibel: Two Worlds Collide'.

Nicely put.
