Except that back then- there were no "naked apes" with cars, trains, and planes, and
houses with heating systems and air conditioners, factories, etc., etc., ad infinitum.
Not that I'm against forestry- I'm PRO forestry, more than almost anyone on this planet-
I'd like to see more forestry rather than idiot clearcutting and high grading which are
the most common forms of "forestry" on this continent.

Thomas Paine in his introduction to "Common Sense", wrote-
"Perhaps the sentiments contained in the following pages, are not yet sufficiently
fashionable to procure them general favor; a long habit of not thinking a thing wrong,
gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable
outcry in defense of custom.  But the tumult soon subsides.  Time makes more converts
than reason."
