The Rumpus: Corinne Lee And Finding An Antidote To America’s Toxicity.

Another intriguing one. This description hits hard - I just got done watching (on Netflix) Escape to the Country, a series about British couples wishing to escape urban life for the greener dales of the UK. Just about every house viewed is hundreds of years old, built of stone.

Here in America, we built square impersonal houses of largely fast-growth timber, cheap metals and plastics, and charge equivalent fees. Our homebuilding industry is predicated on 'just enough to not fall down in ten years', or so it seems.

America, land of the 'free' ... and home of the box.
