Hart pointed out that “the stronger our wish to preserve the wild places, the less we can meet them on their own terms; the more sophisticated, civilized, and complex become the gadgets we must bring into them.” ... Only in the convoluted logic of modern consumer culture did it make sense that those actions in the shopping mall were the best way to save wilderness beyond.
