If this planet never was “garden eden” for mankind – can we choose a (minimalistic, close to nature?) lifestyle that will slowly make it/cultivate a garden eden?
i hope so.
Manhattan – is a native American word – one of the few places were nature was so rich – the natives settled – instead of chasing the Buffalo.
A natural garden eden… before civilization and privatizaion covered the land with concrete and poisoned the water.
I am not sayin all inter-human problems will be solved by garden eden – but nobody is born evil – maybe lazy and always looking for acknowledgement / feeling of importance – but not evil.
