We humans have experimented with various social systems; some have endured and others not. I believe, however, that our well-being is tied not so much to the structure of our society and the politics that determine it, as to our ability to maintain contact with nature, to feel that we are part of the natural order and that we are capable of making a living within it.

    1. I definitely agree! Sustainability, a current watchword, includes and balances ecology (nature), economics, politics and culture, all in one.

    1. Thank you, Jane! I was struck with the contrast between the greenery of nature and the industrial tools of humans.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
