bro, I see your point.
Look, shoes are technology (technically) and I am not indicting shoes neither. But I can elaborate on the missing connection between us and Earth because of shoes.
I am sure Oshun can speak on shamans or others who purposely walk barefoot to stay in physical harmony/contact with Earth. WHY? It must mean that shoes cause some sort of disconnect. Now I hope ones down quote the riot act on how shoes protect us from thorns and parasites or whatever.
I could also write how high-heeled shoes are intentionally used to separate wombmen from natural/spiritual contact, similar to the demonizing of midwifery by the puritanical europeans.
But it is not about that. And I won't go in to all of that.
Many times ones want to polarize my sights as indictments when it is simply observations.
BTW, I can also include some negative things about bikes...but let just say that I clearly see your point.
