And when was this Garden of Eden where eveyone was truly free? Was it when American land was stolen by war and genocide by the people who were here before us, was it when the government and industry collaborated to build canals and railways, was it when slavery was legal, was it when everyone lived in fear of polio? Or was it when people couldn't afford running water and electricity, say, before the Tennessee Valley Authority? Or was it when cities were choked by horrible air pollution (prior to air standards and before, filled with with the dust composed of horse excrement.) Maybe you could build a time machine?
