“So I’ve been thinking a lot about whether the freedom of the day really amounts to anything we’ll miss—as individuals, as a society, as a species. If its loss leaves us deprived, then deprived of what? And at what cost to the psyche of the young hominid? What are the hidden implications of the house arrest (as Richard Louv so aptly calls it) of our young? Whither the well-adjusted person, polity, and planet, after the death of free, unmediated play?”  – Robert Michael Pyle, from “Free-Range Kids” in Orion
