Why the Planet Earth II Episode on Cities Is So Startling

“The modern, rational human being, the one that knows it once descended from animals but along the way turned into something completely different, did not create cities. They created us. And it’s only chauvinism that lets us imagine that we did all the heavy lifting alone, that every jaguar’s lair or falcon’s roost isn’t as much a part of the city as the shopping centers and apartment buildings that have official planning permission.”

An article by The Atlantic shared by a friend on Facebook, but nonetheless interesting, relevant, and worth sharing with you.
