Candy Wrappers, Children and Enjoyable Animism

"Instead of the old punishing moralisms about dropping litter on the street, we need a new and enjoyable animism that children would be the first to understand. 'Don't throw that candy wrapper on the street'--not because it's dirty or bad manners; not because it's wrong; not because 'what if everybody did that?'--but instead 'because your candy wrapper doesn't want to lie around in the gutter or be stepped on; it wants to be in the trash basket along with all its friends."--James Hillman, Pg.89, Kinds of Power
