The way you can go to Paris or Beijing and everywhere there's a McDonald's hamburger, this is the ecological quivalent of franchised life-forms. Every place is the same place. Kudzu. Zebra Mussels. Water Hyacinths. Starlings. Burger Kings.<br/>The local natives, anything unique gets squeezed out.<br/>The only biodiversity we're going to have left is Coke versus Pepsi.<br/>We're landscaping the whole world one stupid mistake at a time.

Amateurism seeks the development of the total awareness of the individual and the critical awareness of the ground rules of society. The amateur can afford to loose.
