The book “Ishmael” by Daniel Quinn is a life altering book. I own 3 copies. In essence it says that as humans we created our own erroneous ideas about how the world functions and as a result we have been depleting the earth and killing each other. We humans think we are the masters of the world, the top of the food chain. We think we can use (abuse) anything we want, like soil, animals and air for our sole advantage. What if instead we thought we were simply another species playing out our small part. Funny how one thought can be so powerful.
