We are limited by our education, guided by experience, and judge by our context. After one-child families, wholistic education is the best way to improve society. Why teach our children to make the same mistakes we have made for generations? We need well educated critical thinkers.
The living wild Earth is dying. How soon, when will it affect us, what are we to do, how is our seventh generation to make a livelihood?

Waves of indifferent invaders brought disease, invasive species and toxic memes. So much of wild America has been destroyed that the Arawak could not recognize it today. It is time to honor the Indigenous peoples who tended the wildlands we enjoy today.
