A Flicker of Resistance

The concept Nature is a flicker of resistance to the oncoming metal army of industrialization, like a medieval sword made of rubber. A fake medieval sword that heightens the fire risk in California’s Yosemite National Park: John Muir, architect of the parks and believer in Nature, favored the growth of trees that covered the slopes in attractive (and flammable) swaths of dense green, to the chagrin of the Native Americans.
