     "There is a danger in separating, or even ignoring, issues that are fundamentally related... There is a tendency for campaigning groups to over-specialise, or to address the symptoms, rather than the underlying causes, of societal and environmental breakdown. This tendency, if left unaddressed, could scupper attempts to oppose and supplant the current system of economic globalisation."
     -- John Pilger, in Private Planet
