. . . the moral is simple:
Progress need not deny to the people their inalienable right
to be informed and to chose. In Glen Canyon the people never
knew what the choices were. Next time, in other stretches of
the Colorado, on other rivers that are still free, and wherever
there is wildness that can be a part of our civilization instead
of victim to it, the people need to know before a bureau's elite
decide to wipe out what no man can replace.
