Gold Mining

Gold mining has to be one of the strangest of human activities. We extract gold from the ground, ruining lakes and rivers in the process, then bury it again in vaults. We rarely use it for anything. When when we do use it, it is for decoration. We destroy the earth to decorate the fingers of the rich. Surely wearing gold should be considered as shameful as wearing the fur of endangered animals.
