Rowena M. [RowenaMonde] Self-Love Is an Adventure, Not a Destination [onbeing.org]

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @RowenaMonde Exactly. That’s the story of not being able to share my life with a person that viscerally does not know what sharing is: one who is obsessed with invulnerability over being alive. It is a profound level of metaphysical poverty that I blame on the many toxic forms of modernism.

Rowena M. [RowenaMonde] @KinteSpace Your comment definitely resonates. I’ve been wondering what it is that kills our humanity, now I’m going to be looking at modernism in a different way

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @RowenaMonde the history of WWI is deliberately told to underestimate/minimize the toxic-modernist effect on humanity; i assert that J.R.R. Tolkien, his work exists to dramatize this catastrophic loss through fantasy telling

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @RowenaMonde are we talking about brutalist architecture? German military concrete structures from WWII surely must deeply inform brutalist architecture, no? [twitter.com]

Rowena M. [RowenaMonde] @KinteSpace Yes. I’m not sure about German but I think after WW1 the British decided to move away from Victorian and Edwardian architecture. Brutalism is definitely extreme
