. . . What I did not anticipate is where I would wind up. I’m now beginning work on the 17th chapter which is tentatively entitled “The Apocalypse of Selfishness.”
The point is this: humanity, for the first time since its emergence as a self conscious entity, faces extinction. The driving forces for that extinction primarily involve the selfish exploitation of the environment. Our air, water, and land are all yielding to onslaughts from interests seeking immense wealth, whatever the environmental costs.
Thoughts to help John.
