I totally agree that, whether we are talking about the troglodytic lifestyle of 10,000 BC, or the funky conditions of industrial mill towns in England of the 19th century, there is certainly no need to over-romanticize the past. But now, in the early 21st century, we have arrived at a condition which is truly new news, and big new news, for the total entirety of 4.5 billion years of planet earth history, from the Hadean to the Phanerozoic: For the very first time, a single species — Hey! That's you and me! — has the capability to change the ecological reality of the entire planet. And to do so very, very fast — at Warp Factor 10 — relative to geo-time. With staggering consequences for billions of people. So what do we do when this exciting new news arrives on our screen? We switch to Oprah. RPD PS: Not sure what this has to do with cohousing. Except maybe, for me, now that I've lost hope in the big picture, I've re-focused my creative contributions, such as they are, on the little picture. Cornerstone in Cambridge.
