“Beavan’s project is imbued with undeniable virtue.”
No it is not. The project at best is a complete waste of time. And at worst it is a net negative in that perpetuates the rediculous idea that man is somehow separeate from nature and capable of living outside of it.
There is nothing noble about it all. Beavan is a fucking ignorant douschbag who ought to be shunning and laughed at at every opportunity.
