The Natural State ia an anthology of U.G.’s conversations, taken from many sources. It offers some of the most startling and penetrating of U.G.’s words in short, easy to read paragraphs. The selections link together various statements of U.G.’s in a way that creates a sense of cohesiveness. The overall effect of the book can stun the reader into a recognition of the futility of many of his deepest-held convictions about life.
“There is no individual there at all. Culture, society or whatever you want to call it has created you and me for the sole purpose of maintaining its own continuity but at the same time we are made to believe that you have to become an individual. These two things have created this neurotic situation for us. There is no such thing as an individual and there is no such thing as freedom of action. I am not talking of a fatalistic philosophy or any such thing. It is this fact that is frustrating us.”
