Taking Responsibility

Claude Lévi-Strauss.jpg

“Being human signifies, for each one of us, belonging to a class, a society, a country, a continent and a civilization; and for us European earth-dwellers, the adventure played out in the heart of the New World signifies in the first place that it was not our world and that we bear responsibility for the crime of its destruction.”  

–Claude Lévi-Strauss (Belgian-born French Social Anthropologist, 1908-2009)
