vingt-neuf: Nation of Amnesiacs

Fuji Sensia
Zion National Park, Utah
August 2009

"To people who think of themselves as God's houseguests, American enterprise must seem arrogant beyond belief. Or stupid. A nation of amnesiacs, proceeding as if there were no other day but today. Assuming the land could also forget what had been done to it."

- Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams

Voluntary amnesia probably accounts for much of mankind's behavior these days. But the land has no need for forgetting. It exploits nothing.
