Current Location





Mankind loves to believe in the value of progress.

Destruction gives place to new.

New often mistaken for better.

Nature, monuments, traditions – nothing sacred.

No questions. No balance.

Today’s Holy Grail is money.

Emotions and senses vanish.

Lost vocabulary: dignity, respect, preservation.

Priceless universal goods are traded for profit.

Temptations plentiful.

Consequences ignored.

Our grandchildren will hold us responsible.

Acting today impacts the future.

We shall better conserve.

We shall better take care.

Irreversible destruction is everlasting.
