Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.

Chief Seattle, 1854
When all the trees have been cut down,
When all the animals have been hunted,
When all the waters are polluted,
When all the air is unsafe to breathe,
Only then will you discover

Cree Prophecy
Treat the earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors
We borrow it from our Children.
Ancient Indian Proverb
The price of anything is the amount of life exchanged for it.
It seems Corporate planetcide will be allowed as long as enough money is moving among the OnePercenters

Greed has no boundaries and knows no reason.
This is so devastating, so sad.
