Do you ever consider the larger systems in which our individual choices are embedded? In this fascinating article, Michaela Barnett makes the case that while our individual choices matter, we must also turn our attention to the corporations who produce unsustainable products and services, and the politicians who perpetuate these systems of production (e.g. through subsidies). She encourages us to turn our guilt into anger at corporate greed. Though there are no direct references to specific actions that can be taken, this is an interesting complement to the idea that our individual choices lead to social change. Clearly, we need to work at both the individual and collective levels for real change to occur. Here's the article. Enjoy!
