To some people, the notion of preserving a wilderness area inviolate from industry is anathema – as though we were on the brink of starvation and could not survive without exploiting the resources of every last piece of ground in our country. They would argue that the urge to develop, to build, to consume, is fundamental to man’s very nature and that this urge ought not to be checked; even if, were we to follow this urge, it would produce no more than a marginal – perhaps even an illusory – increment to our material well-being.
