Professor Wildcat's remarks are prophetic. Unfortunately, the majority culture is primarily concerned with profits. The devaluation of our environment by the corporate mentality goes beyond non-human animals, plants and minerals to our human relatives as well. Thus the proliferation of offices of "human resources." Humans have become fungible cogs in a machine for industrialized culture. Our perception is wrong. We are like fleas thinking we can control the huge dog on which we live.
