Here, surrounded by the national forest, I find myself assaulted by sightseeers with barely legal mufflers, or bear hunters with dogs who pretend to NOT know they’re on private land. The more crowded our land (everywhere) gets, the easier it is to pretend that noone else is around. I like to be receptive to the small sounds of wildlife stirring around me, and find these Harley-wanna-be truck drivers offensive. Much unawareness is just pretending others aren’t around (or “i don’t care if they are!”) and some is ACTUAL unawareness of others AND of how sound travels. especially so in a building complex. Race can absolutely be a component of socio-economic classism, but if it’s missing, the classism is no less ugly. US vs THEM won’t diminish as 7.3 Billion becomes 9.0 Billion. People better get used to SAYING how they feel, and letting people know thier boundaries. I might even have to close the door to my outhouse (even on a sunny day) when I take a dump at my home. These are the LEAST of the impacts from our overpopulation.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
