"Attacks by ecoterrorists are just one part of a broader clash in values between the Old and New West. Pro-environment newcomers now outnumber ranchers, loggers, miners, and others dependent on natural resources for their livelihood... And while US western myth and history includes a penchant for independence and freedom from government restriction, that history in recent years has included a growing number of attacks, including fire-bombings, aimed at those who wear the uniform of the US Forest Service, the US Bureau of Land Management, and other government agencies."
