It is said that an Indian chief on the American continent was asked by a white bureaucrat:
"You've noticed the white man for more than 90 years.
You've seen his wars, his technological advances, his progress and the damage done by the white man.
Given all these events, what do you think, the white man did well or did wrong somewhere?"
The boss stared at the bureaucrat and replied:
"When white found this land, we Indians owned it, we had no taxes, we had no debts, we had plenty of bison, berechet beavers, clean water. The medicine man was free of charge.
The Native American man spent the day hunting and fishing; and all night he was making love".
Then the boss dropped a little on his back smiling:
"ONLY THE WHITE MAN IS STUPID ENOUGH TO THINK THAT HE CAN IMPROVE THIS SYSTEM"
AdAnima comment: the progress of mankind does not mean technological or scientific progress at all.
They do not bring something good except to the extent that they are used correctly, by "soulful", wise people.
Otherwise, you can be happy in the primitive commune - it depends only on the spiritual level and not on the technical-scientific one.
