But we are getting closer all the time. Technology has squeezed our world. The differences that cavemen and cavewomen used long ago for family preservation, no longer apply because we are no longer separated by months and years of travel but minutes and hours. . And we know now that our actions affect others across the globe. Over consumption, use of fossil fuels, toxic pollutants caused by industry, just don't affect my neighbourhood, but do affect others because of climate change. We should no longer think of ourselves as Australians, Canadians, Britons, or Americans. We are earthlings. Others might try to build walls, but it is a doomed endeavour. Blessings.
