Vandana Shiva: 'Making Peace With the Earth Is a Survival Imperative'

I find it amusing that she says “Indian culture is based on compassion and sharing”. What is compassionate about a culture that condemns an entire class of people (the “Untouchables”) based on their birth to a subhuman existence. Sorry, I’ll take Western Civilization with all its faults.
