Industrial Civilization

"Civilization is toxic, but it is desperate to survive, so it convinces the billions of people living under its influence that it’s okay to be “civilized”, that technology will save the day, and that we need corporations, we need governments and we need cities, roads, cars, airplanes, televisions, air conditioning units, Playstations and shopping malls. It convinces people that the big things don’t matter because, and here’s the killer, if we all did the big things then Industrial Civilization would become irrelevant; it would become powerless; it would fail.
And then we might have a chance of living in the future."
