Sacrifices for our children

I was asking the present generation to make some sacrifices for our future generations, or there might not even be any future generation to make sacrifices for,

when one person in the audience shouted, "I don't know anyone in 'future generations', I have no feelings for them, and don't care a hoot about them. Why sacrifice something real for something hypothetical? My mansion is real, my limo is real, my yacht is real, my bank account is real, my oil stocks are real, my son's inheritance will be real. I'll be damned if I lose one dime to some futuristic fantasy."

I was speechless. How about you?

I'm defnitely speechless. Unbelievable that someone would say something like that.
