What has changed
I think two basic changes: 1.Very colorful and effective advertising regarding hunting products you don't have and just discovered you desperately need. 2. Widespred ignorance of the 10th Commandent. I hear there may be a third reason. According to my wife, there is a difference between want and need. I just can't get my mind around that statement, and apparently many other American men (and some ladies) have the same blessed blind spot.
