When I was a kid, I listened to army veterans talking about their stints in the Korean War. Usually after a beer or two, they'd turn their conversation to the "outhouses" used by the Koreans. They were amazed, even mystified, about the fact that the Koreans tried to lure passersby into their outhouses by making the toilets especially attractive. The idea of someone wanting someone else's crap always brought out a loud laugh from the vets.
Perhaps this attitude sums up the attitudes of Americans. Humanure is a waste product that we have to get rid of, and that's all there is to it. Only fools would think otherwise. One of the effects of this sort of attitude is that Americans don't know and probably don't care where their humanure goes after it emerges from their rear ends as long as they don't have to deal with it.
