Thoreau Was Right After All

Thoreau lived on Walden Pond in a wood cabin that he constructed himself. Few, however, have the nerve to dare what Thoreau dared. Few could do what he did. How many of your friends and neighbors could build a cabin? Today metal buildings are the norm, and the values and ideals that Henry David Thoreau wrote about are all but lost. The construction industry has helped up live in tenements and apartment buildings that, like an ant colony, ensure a homogenization that is all but inhuman.
