Clinton’s roadless ban
"Man is only the measure of all arrogance, cruelty and wastefulness.
It took him eons to work his way to the top of the food chain and a couple
of centuries to destroy the food chain from the top down. As the human
population metastasizes it’s erasing, in an instant of historical time,
all the holy wonder and divine whimsy of biological diversity." – Hugh
Crowther (in the May 1, 2000 issue of the "Progressive Populist")
[regarding the serious overuse of antibiotics by animal factory farms]
"...serious infectious diseases are enjoying a resurgence in the U.
S. Our national policy of replacing family farms with animal factories
in the name of ‘economic efficiency’ is one of the key reasons." –
