Are we becoming less American with the further we get away from nature?

    It depends on what you think it means to be “American”. To many, being American is associated with being lazy as we are known for our “fetish” with life-easing technologies. Others think “expansion” both geographically and technologically is American. It really depends on how you define “American”.

    I would agree with the above comment and would like to add that I don’t think America was ever founded on a “one-with-nature” type of view. America has always been about advancement, about going beyond your current means. That’s the “American dream.” The closer you are to nature, the less you care about material ideals and the further away you get from those very “American” concepts.
