A great deal of emphasis is put on development (of buildings, roads, personal gadgetry etc.). Implicit in this emphasis seems to be that development is inherently good. However many people also seem to experience angst at development (expressed as idealization of nature, weekend camping, nostalgia for simpler times etc.). Perhaps it's time that humans started questioning "advancement". Is it advanced to create more things that use more resources and energy (aka development as we know it). Or is it advanced to create and live off of only what we need (in the words Da Vinci: "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.")?

Which brings us to the concept of undevelopment: removing the excess of historical overproduction via demolition, abandonment, reconstitution of resources back to historically natural cycles etc.

What are your thoughts?

Those who would seek to have only what they need will forever find they need more if it does not provide what they want.

Fun Fact: These were among the original lyrics for The Rolling Stones song "You can't always get what you want".

Support undevelopment!

I support the conservation of our public lands, in its current undeveloped state and support its continued management as primitive use areas. I do not support the development of buildings, roads, personal gadgetry etc. that would use public lands, and wish to deny any effort to develop these areas beyond their current state.
