I was just re-reading John Micahel Greer's book : Not The Future We Ordered.

Here are some great quotes!

~ to question the civil religion of Progress is to abandon a core source of meaning and justification of modern life.

I am, and remain GUILTY, as charged.

~ Today's believers in the civil religion of progress are, by and large, commited to a set of beliefs that place them in unavoidable conflict with REALITY.
