"The administrators laying out the blueprints for the technological totalitarianism of tomorrow like to think of the earth as a big space capsule , a machine for living. They are wrong: the earth is not a mechanism but an organism, a being with it's own life and it's own reasons, where the support and sustenance of the human animal is incidental. If man in his newfound power and vanity persists in the attempt to remake the planet in his own image, he will succeed only in destroying himself-not the planet. The earth will survive our most ingenious folly."
Edward Abbey from The Journey Home 1977
