What is life

It is the flash of a firefly
In the night;

It is the breath of a buffalo
In the wintertime;

It is the little shadow
That runs across the grass

And loses itself in the sunset.

Chief Isapwo Muksika Crowfoot

The Western World

Enlightenment or perhaps a definition of capitalism at the present time;

"Hyper-consumption, large scale market intergration and resource extraction on an unprecedented scale" Professor Peter Brosius - University of Georgia.

"European civilisation has failed. Peoples should have the option to leave." Tero Mustonen of Eastern Finland.

Global warming, population explosion, resource depletion and world poverty are the sure signs of that failure. What has been named as European civilisation in in reality European exploitation of people and nature.
