Sometimes I think the world is headed in this direction. Cities are getting larger, more crowded and more violent. Drugs are used to get up, get down, not feel bad, feel good. War is breaking out all over. We fight and war on our neighbors and most of the people who get killed don't have any idea why the war is and what it's all about. Diseases are more virulent and spread faster...at the speed of flight. There are so many mouths to feed and farmland and farmers are disappearing - people are hungry now and more, many more, are going to be hungrier and more desperate soon.
With all that to worry about, and my feeling that if we don't stop the madness and consider what we are doing, this book is not depressing. There are things we can do...and if we don't and we wipe ourselves out, maybe a small group of people will survive and do it better than we do.
