And the point of Sushil's article was...????
It was thought provoking and in some ways humbly inspirational. I did read the whole lot and I was impressed. I do agree with most of what you're saying and in essence I think that if we thought a little about the way our caveman ancestors lived then we may happier. The most interesting points of the article were the sections on discussions and debates. The remarks were quite poignant and haunting in a way. I guess what you were trying to say is that less talk and more action would result in a more peaceful and less greedy society.....?
I agree with Paul about the industrial revolution etc. In 'less fortunate' countries they are only waking up to the dream of what industry can do for them. We've already done our bit to kill off the earth, now it's their turn - which is only fair!!
Pirates, can you please type with punctuation!! I feel like putting capital letters on all your sentence beginnings every time I read one of your posts!!
