    As family sizes decrease, people (children who grow up in those families) become more selfish.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Yes, I got that part, but do you think the selfishness is more likely to cause those people to focus their moral strain on the environment rather than other people?

    I couldn't say. I do believe that the trend toward smaller families has led people to live more materialistic lives (consuming far more).
