"If we are going to get rid of this cold [technological] evil which is threatening the biosphere, destroying society, and emptying our children of all meaning, we simply have to devolve our technological systems so that they are democratic, so that they can be responsive to us and we can take responsibility for them, so they comport with nature, with life forms on the earth." --Andrew Kimbrell
