"The more people do, the more society develops, the more problems
arise. The increasing desolation of nature, the exhaustion of resources,
the uneasiness and disintegration of the human spirit, all have been
brought about by humanity's trying to accomplish something. Originally
there was no reason to progress, and nothing that had to be done. We
have come to the point at which there is no other way than to bring about a
'movement' not to bring anything about." --excerpt from The One Straw
Revolution by Masanobu Fukuoka.
