The Fence

This illustration by Daniel Quinn gives us a satirical yet bona fide view on our changing relation with nature. Oddly enough the illustrator presents all human activity as blank space. As if we are merely reducing complexity and slowly but steadily turning the planet into Mars. Obviously, the blank planet does adds to the comical effect, yet one might just as well argue complexity on the planet increases as a result of our human presence. No?

Thanks for the heads up Geoff Hamilton.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
