Prisoners of Our Own Device

Are those shining condos on the hill science-fictions utopia or an arrogant disaster? Is that pretty Sierra Club calendar an ecological statement, or romantic escapism?

The way we plunder the natural world reveals more than environmental blindness. The scars we leave on the land betray a wider addiction to conquest and domination; a constant, casual recourse to hypocrisy and denial. We benefit from the machinery of plunder, but are ultimately trapped by it. No wonder even our own captive, domesticated landscape reproaches us.
