if i could run, id run away from civilisation. from growth and development. no, im not anti progress, but i am anti this so-called progress that puts the most basic (and precious) requirements of life on a premium. my requirements are minimal, but can i afford them? i think not.
all i want is clean air, pure water, and little but real food. without it being held together by countless chemicals whose names i cannot even pronounce. chemicals that are destined to make their way into our gene pool, mutating our children's children, leaving them a legacy of slow death.
Why do people want apples to be redder than red, oranges so perfectly orange that mother nature requires the help of our genetic engineers and soulless corporates to create them? why cant we just be happy with what we have, and learn to live a simple, holistic existance without damaging our surroundings?
