Gratuitous Meddling

by Barney Canson



"... the very aim and object of action is to alter and improve Nature in the other [non-human] meaning. If the natural course of things were perfectly right and satisfactory, to act at all would be a gratuitous meddling, which, as it could not make things better, must make them worse. ... To dig, to plough, to build, to wear clothes, are direct infringements of the injunction to follow nature. ..."
