re: this post
i mention Indigenous building practices and how, over time, all peoples everywhere managed to create safe, secure, structures that were well adapted to the local climate, fauna, and materials.
Especially coming from an island culture in the tropics, we can also talk about how colonialism has changed our clothing. Taught us to be ashamed and that somehow, being able to wear a freak suit even if you are in a tropical country is the height of class/rationality.
Shit like this is also what makes stuff like air con and all manner of harmful environmental manipulation necessary.
