The Tragic Story of Human Success

We are already living on an overloaded world. Our future will be a product of that fact; that fact is a product of our past. Our first order of business, then, is to make clear to ourselves how we got where we are and why our present situation entails a certain kind of future. [Chapter 2 from William Catton’s classic book Overshoot]
