I recently had to put down a book by Paul Hawken. It was from the stance of liberal politics, stuff I generally agree with. But having my nose rubbed in the eternal parade of Western civilization’s atrocities was wearing me out.
The buzzword today is “sustainability”, and I heartily agree. But one thing that’s not sustainable is going along day after day, year after year, with the abiding sense that everything you’ve ever done in your life, or ever could do, is wrong.
