Why does it have to be this way?

Even though we have laid bare 99% of the worlds’ wilderness areas, there still remain places that have yet to feel the force of mankind.

By that I mean man’s overwhelming desire to fence everything, cage everything, name everything, prevent free access to everything, bring about draconian laws to prevent free access to as many places as possible, to limit free-thinking people from enjoying themselves.

I’m of the belief that this planet is part of us, much as we are part of it. We need to feel that association, if not always, at least now and then. But what do the law-makers do? Let’s use that old hippy term for them…let’s call them “The Man”!

The Man wants to block access, free access that is. If he can make money by charging people to experience what Nature intended to be free, then The Man is happy, very happy. Just like that song “…paid paradise, put up a parking lot…”

So what’s the answer? In short, let’s get out there as often as possible and enjoy whats left, before The Man gets to it!
