Written by Gary Snyder

Who can be proud?  And our conservationist-environmentalist-moral outrage is often (in its frustration) aimed at the logger or the rancher, when the real power is in the hands of people who make unimaginably large sums of money, people impeccably groomed, excellently educated at the best universities--male and female alike--eating fine foods and reading classy literature, while orchestrating the investment and legislation that ruin the world.

Gary Snyder, in Beloved of the Sky, p.139.
