The specifics brought up here are just one manifestation of broader problem. No, broader understates it too much. Pervasive is closer.

I don’t see passing laws as the key to dealing with the problem. Laws are a lousy way to change minds, and the change needed has to begin in people’s minds. Until enough of society appreciates the reality of the broader problems there isn’t much hope for things to change.

I don’t believe anyone can change someone else’s mind. At best one can help someone change their own mind. The OP has done that, and is sharing what nudged him to do so.

Which seems like a good idea to me.
