    Reblogged this on O LADO ESCURO DA LUA.

    Mycket träffande inlägg, och något som jag själv – och många andra – har förfasats över i flera år. Det är en le corbusiersk funktionalistisk Gesellschaftskultur som likriktar och förstör och ingen “global mångkultur”. Att (stor)städer är partiellt likartade må väl vara, men att de i så stor utsträckning består av dessa nihilistiska byggnadslandskap är beklagligt.

    Martin Adolfsson visar upp ett annat av globalismens ansikten i sin nya bok “Suburbia gone Wild”. Samma sterilitet, samma likriktning.

    I am glad that Zurich and other Swiss cities are not on the list.

      Stockholm and other Scandinavian cities are not (yet) on the list either.
