"I am special". I guess if everyone is special then no one is. But when it gets implied that we all deserve special treatment and that rules and ethics are for others then our (democratic, law-abiding) social order loses its "specialness".

But this incident of re-defining Forever Wild is more about a loss of the appreciation of wilderness (which really is special) than whether there were 14 or 15 people in that group. Or, why the defenders keep insisting that no litter was left behind. (No one AFAIK was charged with littering so why keep deflecting the discussion?)
