More Progress = More Crazy


More Progress = More Crazy

By Buddhadasa Bhikkhu

If we say, "the more progress, the more insane,"
It looks rather hard that we'll find any takers,
Because everyone likes progress that exceeds reality --
Progress like a spirit possession is even better!

The world progresses beyond its means and Nature breaks up
Many strange things changing the world sorrowfully,
Making humans into an extraordinary species
Caught up in killing both above and below the ground.

The more progress, the more it boils and bathes in blood;
The smarter, the more sinful, far worse than the stone age;
Creating tortuous problems proliferating endlessly,
The whole world clings to craziness as progress.
