When white men came to America, they asked the Indians if they had land to sell. The Indians thought that was hilarious – they said “Would you like to buy the sky as well?”
When white men came to Australia. They didn’t ask if they could take the land. The indigenous tribes thought it was ludicrous. Why won’t the white man understand? The earth is not just some commodity to use up and throw away.
When they look back at our generation will they think we were greedy? Our great great grandchildren need to live here some day.
We need to rewrite future history – let’s not sell the sky as well.
