“Lost Island”

“It opened my eyes to … to what the whole world may be coming to if we go on as we’re going now. And how are we to go otherwise? I see no possibility of turning back or changing direction.  But … well, after the war I’d like to see parts of the planet walled off, so to speak: out of bounds to engineers and all their allied tribes. Above all, out of bounds to machines.”

— James Norman Hall, “Lost Island”; Little, Brown and Company, 1944
