Like the madness of one, the madness of the whole is beyond its control.

The plague of Homo sapiens is now presenting itself as a terrible attack on the heath of Gaia. Can we help ourselves? The answer has to be yes, although there is little precedent in nature for spontaneous reversal of disease, once it has reached its critical stage. In case you are wondering, the top picture is Gustav Dore's rendering of the Children's Crusade in which children set off to the Holy Land in the pious belief that they could convert Muslims to Christianity. There were apparently many separate incidents that have been conflated in our time as the Children's Crusade. As many as 30,000 children may have perished in one such venture. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Children's_Crusade
