“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Statues and Interviews

 I have just heard on the BBC the firmly stated wish that the interview with Princess Diana never be shown again. But that it's perfectly all right to maintain an obviously white supremacist slavery-era clock in Stroud that contains a Black boy statue. Not a single person thought to remark on this, despite how the two issues were side by side.
