This brings to mind arguments people used to have in South Africa about
"progress" and "development" - I can trace pretty much all the ills we
have to traditional Western / Northern "sciences" - pollution; concrete;
weapons of mass destruction; I could go on... but the point is well made
- we can all live, and live well, if we all tread lightly upon the
planet - and there is no "they" who will do it for us... just us...
