There is no future or past. . .
What is archaic? What is modern? We are both.
The myth of the first world is that
Development is wealth and technology is progress.
It is all rubbish.
It means that you are no longer human beings
But only labor.
It means that the land you live on is not earth
But only property.
It means that what you produce with your own hands
Is not yours to eat or wear or shelter you.
If you cannot buy it.

-Karen Yamashita, Tropic of Orange, pg. 261
