Living in the System
Footprint Press features writers with their boots on the ground

he only reality is the physical world. Natural elements - air, earth, water and fire support the living systems of which we are a part, and which sustain us. All else, including our political and economic systems, are merely constructions of our minds - something human beings made up. There is no denying this.
Yet we do just that, deny reality,
when we turn a blind eye to destruction of rivers, farmland, and the
natural world which we depend upon for our existence. Awe of nature
twisted into fear, fuels violent, futile attempts to force nature
and her creatures to submit to our whims.
