I Love You, Earth
Interview by William Defebaugh
William: What does the word “natural” mean to you?
William: How do you see humans and nature coexisting in the future?
Yoko: We are already coexisting. We just don’t think so.
William: What can nature teach us about violence and peace?
Yoko: Peace is power. War and violence bring poverty.
William: Is there such a thing as too much progress?
Yoko: Progress? We are incredibly instinctive people, so we will change with a speed that we can’t think about now.
William: Did we come into this world or come out of it?
Yoko: We are here, and we can make it better and better.
