Quote: âoeOnce, long ago, there were grand ancient societies that lived in harmony with the earth. These were matriarchal civilizations that worshipped an Earth Mother (just like in Avatar).â
UhâŠname one. Fact is, ALL human societies has been exploitative and extractive of Earth, regardless of lip service they paid to Mother Earth, Nature, or whatever. Itâs just there used to be such fewer numbers of humans that the impact was not as destructive as it is todayâsâ. The idea that ancient societies lived in harmony with the earth is as old, cliched and untrue as the Victorian notion of the âoeNoble Savageâ, from, which is is most un-nobly descended.
The sooner we deal with facts and reality, the sooner crap religions, junk science and exploitative, jingoistic politics will no longer be drivers of our society.
