This is how humanity lived until 5,000 years ago. They lived that certain way. There were certain laws, a certain code of living. Now all they’re concerned about is a certain truck. You don’t need all that stuff to live.
If we learn the lesson this time around, the children of the next generation will thank us and be able to cherish what is left of “heaven’s poetry to us,” the life force of this big blue marble in space.
