The trend towards “hostile architecture” is another glaring visual exhibit of our callousness to fellow humans. Ubiquitous spikes and benches that allow for sitting, but not sleeping are all a very real part of urban planning these days. Spikes in some locations are even to the point of being dangerous for those who might trip and fall near them. What a lovely society to have modern day iron maidens sporadically spread about. If we unearthed a civilization in ruins and found evidence such as this—what would we think about that society?
