The People with the Green Heads
It was Robert Louis Stevenson who said: “Trees are the most civil society.” And when we think of the ingenious ways that have been designed by man to destroy man and his environment, we must agree with that statement. If with R.L.S. we place ourself [sic] in the position of his visitor from another planet who at the point of his descent was met by a philosopher to whom the stranger pointed to a group of trees and exclaimed:
“Those are beautiful people.”
“Those are not people”, said the philosopher, “They are just trees.”
But said the stranger,
“I can hear them singing.”
“That’s just the wind in their branches” said the philosopher, “I will read you a theory of winds.” Then together they looked out on the distant scene. Away below was a great city, with people rushing about. Said the visitor:
“Those are queer people.”
“They are the inhabitants of the greatest City on Earth” the philosopher replied.
“I would not have thought it. I prefer the People with the Green Heads.”
