Douglas Adams..} "This planet has-or rather had -a problem which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy, for pretty much most of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper,which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.

And so the problem remained; lots of people were mean, and most of them were miserable,even the ones with digital watchs.

Many were increasingly of the opinion that they'd all made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place.And some said that even the trees had been a bad move, and that no one should ever have left the oceans."

Now most of us know which book this came from.But even though it is a work of fiction.Doesn't it make some sense?

Yep, it's sad that more people have probably ordered a cheeseburger from McDonald's than have ever planted a garden.

I agree and he probaly hit the nail on the head,on how it will all end (kind of).

"And then, one thursday,nearly two thousand years after one man had been nailed to a tree for saying how great it would be to be nice to people for a change, a girl sitting on her own in a small cafe in Rickmansworth suddenly realized what it was that had been going wrong all this time,and she finally knew how the world could be made a good and happy place.This time it was right ,it would work,and nobody would have to get nailed to a anything.

Sadly, however, before she could get to a phone to tell anyone about it, a terrible,stupid catastrophe occured, and the idea was lost forever."

You should try Robert Rankin as well.
One follows the other quite well

I personally think it may have started in the mid to late 50s. We as a society, decided to stick our collective thumbs out, and hitch hike away from the concept of the family unit. We lost our way then...family values were replaced by those little pieces of green paper....jmoho...

I think what we are seeing now is, the collective hitting of the *panic* button.
