I look at this, shake my head and think dissociative western "civilization" has its head so far up its *** that it has forgotten what the sunshine looks like.
So, this is an area that was sweet water rich. The greed of predatory capitalism in its circularly pathology of hoarding takes as much as it can and when it hits the point where what is known as a 'profit margin' no longer suits it, the infrastructure is shut down and greener pastures are sought. This in reference to the industrial revolution methodologies and the atavistic perspectives applied not to factories, but to human and natural life. Over hundreds of puffed-up proud years that is as far as its perspective on the scientifically proven nature of cyclical symbiosis has evolved. No wonder the rape of the land and pollution have had to have superfund sites, all too often failing to function due to application of the same premises.
This is a travesty of the legacy of institutionalized hording because fundamental health never was a foundational premise. Where fundamental health HAS managed to get a foothold people have had to fight tirelessly. Yet one is considered 'radical' to point to the bare butts of empire's declassé clique.
