the environmentalist's concern

200. Disturbances

Nothing works properly any more.
There are disturbances everywhere, sabotageing life,
messing up communication lines, turning nature into havoc,
threatening life and the very existence of man
because of man's own folly,
who doesn't understand that he can't be unnatural
without upsetting the universe, life and his own existence.
Never earlier have so many life forms died out,
never has man been more violent and self-destructive,
never before has any form of life turned into a threat to life itself,
like man does now in his totally absurd egoism.
What can we do? Eliminate the disturbances,
keep them out of our lives, close up the omnipresent noise pollution,
turn back to nature and plant trees, abandon the brainwash society
and be human, kind and gentle, cure the psychotic illness of stress
and co-operate with life instead of doing everything to destroy it.
No one has an enemy except himself, if he turns into one,
and that's the only possible departure from nature, life and reason.
