Prisons exist to remind us that all of architecture, all of society in fact, is a prison. Look at this guy – bummed behind bars. It made me feel a little better after I read that all the animals in the Bear Mountain trailside zoo were rescued from poor domestic situations or were handicapped. The problem is they were almost all injured as the result of human actions, even if it was accidental.
Our species-specific arrogance dooms us to be dicks, at least to the non human inhabitants of this world, not to mention how we treat each other. Welcome to the human condition, bald eagle dude. What’s up with that?
