“… the hippies of the 1960s did not understand the fact that they were fighting in the world, but they were fighting it too … More than this, they were right in the fact that the plastic culture – modern Man, the mechanistic worldview in university textbooks and in practice, the total threat of the machine, the establishment technology, the bourgeois upper middle class – is poor in its sensitivity to nature … As a utopian group, the counterculture understands something very real , both as to the culture as a culture, but also to the poverty of the world. -Chapter 2

“If God treats the tree like a tree, the machine like a machine, the man like a man, should not I, as a fellow-creature, do the same? highest reason: because I love God – I love you I love you I love you I love you -Chapter 4

The goal is for the purpose of achieving value, but it is an intrinsic value. as soon as God was created by God. ” -Chapter 4
