No grade entry, no wall
Nature builds walls for one primary purpose.
Create order inside the walls, leave chaos outside.
The cell pulls in disorganized chemical elements, uses them to build intelligence and genomic culture and infinitely ordered complexity inside, then dumps the waste products outside.
Multi-celled organisms have systems to process input chemicals and distribute them to the cells, and separate systems to gather up the waste products from cells and excrete them to the outside world.
This pattern repeats in a pre-1970 American city. Each house maintains strict order inside, pulling in food and fuel from the outside and expelling trash and shit to the outside. The city has systems to distribute food and fuel, and separate systems to gather and excrete the waste products.
Pre-1970 American houses and apartment buildings repeated the pattern on a smaller scale. A front entrance for the inhabitants to enter and leave on their food (=money) gathering expeditions, and a separate service hall for trash and laundry delivery.
In houses as in animals, the output system was larger and more complicated than the input system.
After 1970 America broke the natural pattern. We decided that there is no outside
, no back hall, no grade entry
, no area where chaos is allowed, no system to gather and excrete chaos. Inside and outside must be equally orderly. Cities lost alleys and detached garages and chinatowns; apartments have only front entrances. Environmentalism ran parallel to this decision. Stop littering, eliminate landfills, eliminate "dirty" factories that provide jobs for "dirty" Deplorables.
We have devolved from vertebrates to sea squirts.
Mouth and anus are the same opening. Unsurprisingly this new arrangement doesn't work well. We have defeated the whole purpose of walls and organisms and cities. Chaos isn't gone,
Was this part of the same movement that now tries to eliminate walls entirely? The modernist architects certainly belonged to the same globalist caste as the Sorosians, but I don't see any direct cultural link or ancestry.
