It is time to move aside and consider the rest of our planet's inhabitants. It is time to shrink our economies. It is time to leave some nature unraped. British philosopher Alan Watts wrote
".......a permanently victorious species destroys, not only itself,
but all other life in its environment."
We depend on all other life on this planet. Without trees for oxygen, without plants for food, without wood and fiber for building and clothing, without water for drinking, without the animal kingdom for balance of our ecosystems, we do not exist. We have already destroyed so much of life on earth, let's not keep winning to the bitter end.
