But when nothing is valued for what it is, everything is destined to be wasted. Once the values of things refer only to their future usefulness, then an infinite withdrawal of value from the living present has begun. Nothing (and nobody) can then exist that is not theoretically replaceable by something (or somebody) more valuable...Indeed, once our homeland, our source, is regarded as a resource, we are all sliding downward toward the ashheap or the dump.
