An interesting description of what has led to this self-centered mindset can be found in 'The Shape of the Suburbs' by John Sewell (2009). The chapter is called 'The Triumph of Suburban Values' I think. The explanation is that the development of sprawl causing increased preference for personal vehicles has modified a large portion of our society's values. The book does help put things in perspective, but provides no silver bullet for change. It's actually a bit depressing, but a very worthwhile read no less.
