Technology is not the solution - technology is the problem. Non-industrial society destroys ecosystems for food, clothing and shelter. An industrial society destroys ecosystems for consumer goods in addition to food, clothing and shelter. Industrial Society is the most destructive and least sustainable on a small planet like earth.
Very soon science is going to announce the gene for environmental destruction.
Humans are not responsible for environmental destruction - it is the gene.
Humans are not responsible for anything - the genes are responsible for everything.
It is the gene which is responsible for obesity.
It is the gene which is responsible for cancer.
It is the gene which is responsible for violence/ aggression.
It is the gene which is responsible for mental suffering.
When it comes to Olympic medal they will give it to a person - not to the gene.
When it comes to Nobel Prize they will give it to a person - not to the gene.
When it comes to rewarding work they will pay million dollar salary to the CEO - not to the gene.
When it comes to "Theory of Relativity" they will give credit to Einstein - not to the gene.
On earth we have got oceans and oceans of water - which have been polluted/ poisoned by man - but this is hardly news for humans.
Recently Man bombarded the moon with a rocket to discover traces of water - and it became the newspaper headline across the world.
They call it progress, growth, development.
Height of insanity - Height of abnormality.
Don't search for a few molecules of water in outer space.
Take care of the water that is available on earth.
Industrial Society Destroys Mind and Environment
