> There is a range called the Hartz Mountains in Tasmania. That same issue has been significant there. The state governmentand the unions (very misguidedly) opposed the efforts of the hated greenies to stop clear felling of old growth native forests for woodchip to Japan. Once the site had been clearfelled and some of the timber taken away, the rest was burned completely and replanted with the addition of 1080 poison to kill anything that moved and might eat the new growth in the ensuing animal famine. Now, this is valuable cabinet timber turned into toothpicks and the area left looking like it had been bombed so some people could make some money and so some people could say they were not being pushed around by greenies. So naturally, I read your uncles ideas with great interest. The government was really conforming to the marxist idea that the government is the executive committee of the ruling class. It has been a sort of mafia state.

I say with no hesitation that my uncle was brilliant. I saw for myself the devastation that coal mining wrought upon the beauty of Wales when I was a wee one, and I got to see, 35+ years later, the effect my uncle's work had on rebuilding and managing the land. He was so wise in his practices.

(Let's see, I've allowed this thread to go rather off the Faith subject. I will interject a random note about my uncle that might bring us back.)

I remember that my uncle was so quiet in his walks through the woods surrounding his home that deer would readily approach him without fear. He was not a hunter that I know of. I thought that he had been through so much with his war time experiences that he had a stillness about him that was magical, or even holy. (I would not ever dream of speaking of this to my mother in fear of upsetting her.)
