Meet the Smiths; a festering culture rot of of pseudo-intellectual, anti-human “outdoorsmen,” that want you in inside, unhappy, and eventually extinct
It’s also relevant that a lot of times, that “fewer people should have access to nature” turns into a weird superiority thing (who is worthy? not those lowlifes over there [ick]), and on a larger scale, “humans are what’s wrong with the world”/fallacies about untouched nature ignores that most individuals aren’t doing damage at the system-level scale and gets right back into weird nonsense about who deserves to be allowed to populate.. also ick. If anything, getting outdoors and paying attention tells us both that we are small parts of a whole *and* that small things can have big impacts.
And, yeah, what you said about getting outside being good for us, and for a friendly intro and teaching people doing more good than shouting. That’s worth supporting.

Well done Cole. Count me squarely in the Teddy camp. Fuck the Smiths and the animated horseys they rode in on.
I'm with Teddy also, but I bet if he were here in 2023, he might agree there are too many of us in some places..like his beloved Yellowstone where traffic jams are now common.
T should required for everyone to take this class one a year. There should be an annual fee associated with it. https://twitter.com/leavenotrace/status/1682133679986946053?s=46&t=yHhr9CFS49ZimrUMgPJlQw
