"You know, we're looking at a demise, an existential crisis of survival as a species. And that's because of the greed that is driving commerce and the amoral position that commerce has taken about anything spiritual ... we've been given, as I said before, the responsibility of intellect and the foreknowledge of death - huge, huge responsibility. And we're in a situation today that is extremely dangerous for our future generations. And in that regard, when we were being instructed by the Great Peacemaker, he said to us very directly, when you sit and you console for the welfare of the people, think not of yourself, nor of your family, or even your generation. He said, make your decisions upon those generations coming so that they may have and enjoy what you have today. That's a serious instruction onto seven generations."
