Small is Beautiful

Written by E. F. Schumaker

Modern Westernization forces people to experience themselves not as part of nature but as outside forces destined to dominate and conquer it.  Technological and scientific illusions of progress have caused human beings to confuse income with capital:  they live off irreplaceable capital they find in nature and which they do not produce (such as fossil fuels).

Schumaker, Small is Beautiful, cited in Isaak, Green Logic, p.76.
