No, you go way too far in your final paragraph

"Some people are born to insist on quality, others to not care. Not care is what leads to fast food, cheap goods, lack of inspirational vision, and the decline of true industry."

I don't agree. For one thing, one can be selective in what matters and in where one demands quality. For another, different people have different budgets.

My brother, for example, works very hard as an engineer for Pratt, and his wife is an operations manager there too. Aside from his family and close friends, nothing matters more to him than American industry. He is also very intelligent and well read and about as intellectually curious a person as I know.

But when it comes to home furnishings and consumer "stuff" in general, he really does not care at all. To my wife and me, it's a bit of a shockr when we go into the nice looking suburban colonial where he and his wife and my two nephews live and see the used, beat up and cheap stuff, but we're, frankly, spoiled. Lawyers make more money than engineers and most corporate managers, which is a problem in the U.S. frankly, and my wife and I don't have kids (yet). And, for whatever reason, nice, quality stuff means more to us.
