Hi Brigitte, I hope you don't mind me passing your letter on to the list, as it's of interest also to others. - The U.S.A., with the widespread ultra-nationalism, is, of course, a nation largely consisting of immigrants, and their descendents, from many parts of the world (we know the tragedy which befell the indigenous peoples!), certainly including Germans. Anyway, you make some good points, it seems you are inferring that patriotic concerns can sometimes deflect from looking after our planet. I agree. All good wishes, Bert. >From: Mbblackforest@aol.com >To: firstname.lastname@example.org >Subject: Re: [casi] Always easier to point the finger outward than >inward!!!! >Date: Thu, 21 Mar 2002 20:08:34 EST > >I agree with you.
