It is sweeter to wander with the wretched and outcasts than to sit crowned with roses at the banquets of the rich

Nature Orders Itself, Capitalism Orders Banality - Lat Long 51n29, 0e0 going West - 3rd Interlude

One of my favourite spots to see how Nature is happy to organise itself. Here the beach is laid out in strips - bottles, bricks, rocks, pebbles, broken and eroded bricks, mud, sand, water.

Elsewhere in town, capitalism is able to order itself into a series of identical shopping booths with directions posted everywhere (even in someone's hands)
