We hate and fear nature. Cos nature used to come at us in the shape of sabre-toothed tigers and leopards and so on, and eat the crap out of us when we were hominids and “humans” on the savannah and in the jungle, with no decent eyesight, claws or fangs or fire to defend ourselves.
We have yet to forgive “nature” and we will control her and kill her if it is the last thing we do. Which, of course, it will be. Oh how we will laugh.
For meat on the bones (har har) of the assertions above, see Barbara Ehrenreich’s magnificent “Blood Rites“.
