It's good that you have read it in full. I only read part of it before getting distracted by something else and forgetting about it. What I did read opened my eyes to the truly devastating effects of the industrial revolution. Previously, I wasn't fully aware of what it has done to the world. I'm more aware of how computers/internet have ruined us. But I see it now. Humans have destroyed so much in their demand for "progress."

I do pine for a return to primitive society. All of this destruction has only made our lives unnecessarily complex and stressful. I don't think it was worth the price at all. However, I don't think a revolution to set ourselves on this path to the past will ever happen. We are too far gone. Despite realizing where technology has brought us, I still cling to my comforts. The rest of the people are blissfully unaware of it or actively ignore it. The way I see it, the only way to fix it is to end humankind or possibly destroy the planet. With the way people breed, extinction will likely never happen. But the destruction of the planet at the hands of humans could very well become a reality. But we probably won't live to see it.
