China’s Monstrous Buildings

Ah, the victorious future! Proud buildings hurtling skyward, proclaiming the ascendancy of man over filthy, chaotic Nature.

It must have looked so thrilling to people who saw that imagery when they watched the 1927 silent movie, Metropolis.

The reality of it is somewhat different.

Oppressive structures dominating the spirit of humanity, stripping away the idea of individual value.

Narrow sidewalks clogged with people. Traffic jams. Giant shadows draping everything. The broad sky sliced into thin slivers.

Will it be like that in China, as they rush to build these monsters?
