The worst hard time?

It’s one of those “If we don’t learn from history we’re bound to repeat it” clever phrases people like to say, but it never really means anything. If they were clearing out large territories of Virginian forest to build a factory, or lay a pipeline, protestors would be up there polluting the environment in defense of the land like they did in Standing Rock for a pipeline…all good, but you know, this is for a solar farm, so just hack that forest down and screw the wildlife.

Anyone ever hear of the dust bowl? Not an expert, just puts me in mind of it.

By the way, if you’ve never read “The Worst Hard Time” drop a few bucks and give it a read. Makes you appreciate your big screen. And you know, all that history repeating itself stuff. Don’t screw with progress, that’s what they thought.

  1. Thought-provoking Tony. Good linked-articles too. We, humans, are too often our own worst enemies. There is a reason for history and we’d be wise to stay aware of it.
