I would also like to say that besides the failure of architecture,,
there is the perversion of well intentioned Codes and regulations,so
that it is okay for the police to tear down and haul away a persons
shack,even though it is his only shelter from the Rain and wind,,this
perversion of law Enforcement whose traditional duty has been to
protect life and property,now has the ignoble job of dispossessing
those who have built any crude shelter against the weather,a behavior
which has been part of the human makeup for time immemorial,now is
denied and stifled and even punished,,Even when there is no other
alternative..this is a society which has ceased to deserve the Name.
