WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS
A Healing Our World feature illustrating
the insanity of our world.
Water is one of the most important substances in
our world. Without it, our we would have no life as we know it. Our bodies
are mostly water and our planet is 75 percent water. Yet the way our culture
computes value, water comes up a big zero. Of course we also call wild
lands that have no structures "vacant" and of value only if
they are near "desirable" urban areas. We call other nations
that don't have our dependence on technology "under-developed"
and "third world" and "under privilaged." How we have
defined what is of value in our lives may be at the heart of our disconnection
from the natural world.
