If you’re vegan and you are eating at a table with meat-eaters, there will always be morons that, embarrassed for their dishes full of terror, abuse and death, will try to ruin the best vibes that could be there… in fact: they eat from your dish and say “plants suffer too”. I’ve always known that and sometimes, at the beginning of my vegan choice (back then “vegetaliani” is what they were called), I wasted time explaining to the minus habens how much the sentence was true for someone like them, but that sometimes the rule of the lesser of two devils stands when you are at the mercy of hell’s flames.
In the book “Trees’ wisdom” of Peter Wohlleben describes plants as living beings with their own identity. If on one hand he could throw into crisis many vegans like me that know better how the food chain and the natural law of the strongest (both strongly admired by stupid) are our condemn to the worst struggles in this world of pain, on the other hand he could contribute to a better humanity evolution that, as of today, seems a little in distress to me.
Peter Wohlleben is an ex-forest ranger who worked in Germany with a more than 20 years of service. Peter has always been in love with nature. As a matter of fact, today he has committed himself to the disclosure by means of his books and seminars. He loves flora and fauna so much, and he knows them so well that he was capable of telling us with contagious enthusiasm the life of the trees, the animals and other ecological matters. “Trees’ wisdom”, as well as all the other works of Wohlleben, can keep you glued till the last page, thanks to the amount of interesting information and the simplicity which he’s conveying them with.
Philosophy aside, the book “Trees’ wisdom” of Peter Wohlleben is really useful also for reading the external signs, shapes and positions of the trees, which rarely are noticed. Sometimes my investigative agency Octopus has dealt with disputes on expropriations, usucapions or property’s boundary issues; with pollution experienced in open country; or again, it happened to have to inquire into victims whose corpses were buried among greenery. For sure as a simple detective agency owner, I could never replace forensic botanic expertise, which I turn sometimes to, but, after this reading, I will better appreciate their job, noticing things regarding plants that I ignored in the past.
