I had this professor that theorized every progress mankind has achieved has been to get himself further away from nature. It stuck with me through the years and I think about it often as homesteading and gardening becomes more and more mainstream in this country. Those that look to grow their own food and avoid man-made chemicals moved past the small fringe and are now covering sites like Pintrest and facebook. It’s hip to ride a bike and grow tomatoes for the first time since the 60’s. Is it possible today to have the kind of social revolution that happened then? I wonder if Peace, Love, and Understanding are around the corner to stay for at least a popular minute, or if we are too violent and jaded to ever get to that place again.
