"We’ve been caught up in a mechanistic world,
because what we make, makes us. We
make the automobile, the automobile
makes us. We make an industrial economy,
the industrial economy makes us.
We are now in a weird dream world of
industrial technological imagination.
Who would be so destructive to the very
basis out of which we exist, that we spoil
our water and our air? For what? To invent
an industrial economy. We are so
brilliant scientifically and so absurd in
any other way. We are into a deep cultural
pathology – in ordinary language,
we are crazy. To think that we can have a
viable human economy by destroying
the Earth economy is absurd."
